Product Description

In 2018, Washburn is celebrating its 135th year anniversary. Commemorating 135 years as one of America's oldest guitar brands, Washburn has built 135 commemorative limited edition models based on its 1937 5246 Dreadnought.

Washburn has been one of the original American guitar makers incorporating in 1883 with its Lyon & Healy Company beginning even before that. Washburn was responsible for building some of the World's best sounding and most intricate parlor guitars during the turn of the century. By the early 1900's Washburn had introduced the first large bodied instrument, the Lakeside that would later inspire the creation of the modern "Dreadnought." By the late 1930's America was experiencing a Golden Era of guitar building. In 1937, the Washburn 5246 Solo Dreadnought was born. Very few of these 1937 built Washburn guitars exist today.

The commemorative limited edition 135 instruments will be serialized starting from year 1883 and ending with year 2018. The Washburn Revival Series Solo Dreadnought 135th Anniversary (RSD135-D) is made in the U.S.A. at Washburn's custom shop and features a body shape resulting from a direct tracing of the 1937 #5246 Solo Dreadnought. Sonically, the 135 is a loud, rich guitar benefiting from its Solid Sitka Spruce with scalloped-X "Moonwood" European Spruce bracing paired with African Mahogany, as well as its bone nut and saddle. Cosmetically it draws inspiration from the original #5246 with a Washburn "smile" bridge, Revival '30s style headstock and Solo Dreadnought tortoise pickguard. Optimizing player comfort was considered on the 135 pairing this vintage creation with a modern narrow-C shaped neck and Graphtech Ratio-Tuned tuning machines.
