About This Vintage Ad

“Washburn Parlor sized unmarked beauty!

Amazing resonant tone wood. Great sustain. Feather weight.

This model would have come standard with Rosewood back and sides. For additional $$$, you could special order with mahogany as this one.

Weight. 2.6 lbs
Length. 37”
Upper bout. 9 1/4”
Lower bout. 12 3/4”
Depth. 3 7/8”
Nut width. 1 7/8”

There are no markings found on this guitar. No numbers or stamps that I can detect.

I’m guessing that this one may have been refinished at some point because the finish is really nice. Light wear on the face under the high E. Older Bridge with end piece was installed/removed. Bridge is solid. Old tailpiece holes were filled.

Really classy double bound body and round neck. Inlays along the rims, sound hole and down the center of the back. I’m guessing spruce top and mahogany neck, sides and back.

The neck is solidly placed and doesn’t look like it’s been reset. Rosewood fretboard. Frets are in very good shape. Beautiful beefy neck! Action is medium height. The saddle has room for adjustment.

There are 3 nicely repaired cracks in the face. None are terribly easy to see or feel. One by the lower bout and a couple from sound hole to bridge. All are stable. One very nicely repaired crack on the side of the lower bout.

Looks like original tuners with white plastic buttons. They hold tune well.

Includes worn Chipboard case which shows plenty of wear and loss of winding that binds the case together at the head. I can’t confirm it’s original to the guitar. All clasps, hinges and handle are intact.

I also have a nice fitting gator hard case that I would include instead of the old chipboard case. Please specify which one you’d like
