Washburn 5250 Collegian Archtop Serial #132
« on: February 19, 2014, 10:43:13 PM »
I have a vintage beauty for sale. It's a early to mid-1930s Washburn Collegian Archtop.

It has some wear and tear understandably, as you can see from the photos.
The thing that sets this particular guitar apart is that it is only the 132nd one that the Tonk Bros made of its kind.
Spruce top, matchbook back, steel frets, all original, and more info below.

I am posting here to gauge interest. I found another one of these 5250's for sale elsewhere on the internet, but it is not such an early model.

If you are a collector and/or are interested, email me at
