Hi Markd,

Thanks so much for getting back to me so quickly!

Yep, that's the one. The serial number is #587 and I would like to post some pics, but I can't figure out how to get the files uploaded.

Is there a post somewhere on the forum for how to do that? I can't find it in the "Help" section:(

Best,
Tim

I am new here, but I just inherited a 5258 model, s/n 460.  Unfortunately, it is in some need of repair as the metal bridge support is broken.  I am would like to find the part to repair it, so I thought I would start here.  I will post pictures when I find out how to do that.

This would be a Tonk Bros. Washburn from about 1934.  Large body, 15 ½” lower bout arch top, 7 piece laminated neck, 25.5" scale length, carved spruce top, flamed maple back and sides, ebony fingerboard and bridge, ivoroid bound tortoise celluloid pickguard.  It should have bar frets, mother-of-pearl inlayed Washburn on the solid peghead – here is a photo of one I had that should be the same guitar.

The guitar you've tagged as '1932-5202', with the 'sailor's cap' headstock and 18 fret fingerboard, would have been built between 1925 and September 1928 (ie, during the same period, immediately prior to the sale of the 'Washburn' business to JR Stewart, as the 'shrine' guitar you've shown at the top  )..  ;D
