I watch a show on RFD-TV, on Friday nights, called Country Family Reunion. It's a show with many of the older country writers and performers from the 50's, 60's, and 70's. I always see a Washburn Cherokee on the show, being used by various singers. I think the Cherokee is owned by Bill Anderson, the host of the show, as I've also seen it pictured on a couple of his older albums. The Cherokee always sounds good, and seems to be preferred by the performers, over other guitars sitting on stands near them.
