Getting older and have too many guitars to give them the playing time they deserve.
So it would be nice to sell two, very hard-to-find Washburns -- a WG2S and WG4S -- here to someone who I know will appreciate them. I'll still be keeping my R321 SWRK parlor though.
Can't find those anymore either except a couple still available in the UK.
Here's some photos:
Both the WG2S and WG4S have:
-Solid cedar top
-Rather stunning quilted ash back/sides
-Gold Grover 18:1 tuners
-Bone nut (1 3/4") and saddle
-Thin neck profile with Rosewood (I think) fretboard with fine 42-style abalone inlays
-Supremely psychedelic abalone headstock inlays
-Abalone rosette, top perimeter and backstrip
-Stylized rosewood (I think) bridge -- moustache style though not full-on like Gibsons and Taylors
-Ivoroid (I think) top, back and fretboard binding
-Excellent shape -- no dings or scratches, maybe a little swirling on the back
-Both come with a custom Washburn-branded hardshell case with an inner sleeve that covers the tops of the guitars
I have seen the WG2S described as a parlor, but it is closer to an OM with a slightly smaller upper bout. The lower bout is 15" and the upper bout is 10 3/4". It has a great tone -- lots of punchy attitude if you push it, but very good for finger style.
The WG4S, the bigger brother, is a mini-jumbo with 16" lower bout and 11 1/2" upper bout. It has more bottom end, balance and more refinement, but definitely can growl and crunch if you push it. I have found it to be a great guitar to write on.
IMHO the guitars are very complementary. They offer a great counterpoint. I've loved having both and personally I hope one buyer buys both.
Given their quality, condition and rarity, I think $525 each, shipped and PayPaled is a skookum deal. Not interested in trades.
Thanks for looking
