Revival Series Solo DeLuxe RSG200SWVSK
The 1939 Washburn Solo DeLuxe Super Auditorium 5246 is the inspiration behind the all-solid Revival Series Solo DeLuxe. Period details such as the narrow "Crown" headstock, 1939 Vintage Sunburst, ivoroid binding and rosette, fingerboard inlay, and period faux- tortoise pickguard combine to create a visually stunning acoustic guitar.
The torrefaction process is applied to both soundboard and bracing to age these materials such that internal resins are crystallized and suspended water removed—much like what would happen over the course of 20+ years of natural air drying. Mated with solid Indian rosewood back and sides and a bone nut and saddle, it features a pre-War voice that will give pause to anyone listening to this magnificent instrument. The Solo DeLuxe's 1-3/4" nut width and narrow C-shaped neck optimize playing comfort. Graphtech Ratio-Tuned open-back tuners and Cleartone 7412B light-gauge phosphor-bronze strings complete this exquisite instrument. Hardshell case included.
