Vintage and Rare Washburns / Re: Info on concert New Model parlor guitar

Again thank you so much for the info,  it's greatly appreciated.  A correction though it has a cedar neck with ebony fret board, nut, and bridge.  Well the boss will be pleased with its value and it looks like I had better get busy on it. The hardest part will likely chasing down an original tuner assembly as one has been replaced.

with the dots o as fret markers makes it a bit older more like 1908 - 09 and that tail piece as you can see was added later but yep still worth having it repaired the last one I saw with repairs sold for around the $1700 ( canadian )and it had some serious cracks front and back but very well repaired.

Thank you very much for the info.   It has mahogany /ebony neck and 3 fret markers.   The music store I work at dug this up and asked me if I could take a look at it and see if it was worth repairing.  One look at the rosewood sides was all I needed to tell them yes.  So I'm currently planning on resetting neck and dealing with some cracks in body.   I have attached some more pictures.  Happy to see that this forum is here so I can learn more about this guitar after saving it from being tossed in the dumpster.

nice old parlor 1889 was around the $32.00 mark back then making it a semi high priced instrument was a concert size guitar  rosewood b/s could be either cedar or mahogany neck  18 frets  ebony finger board and should have no fret markers ebony flattened bridge no binding on the top colored rings around sound hole and a fancy back stripe and more pics would help

Thanks for the info fellas.  Sounds like Washburn  didn't make very many of these.  Makes since that I was having trouble finding info.  I'll post some more pics when I get back from vacay.  FYI the guitar in the case just to the left of the washburn in the pic is a Gibson L-30 that her father had.  It's got to be at least 75 years old looks like that's when Gibson discontinued them.

As I suspected, thanks very much for the confirmation.

Hi I'm new to this forum and am interested in finding out more information about a washburn New Model that I am going to start some repair work on.   Stamped inside is the following, the George Washburn stamp,  New Model stamp,  a #2 on braces under soundboard,  and serial number 30668, style 202.  Any idea of age or what the style 202 model was would be greatly appreciated.

That's my understanding - so you pop in a "dummy" 1/4" plug to activate the pre-amp. The flip side of this is that, so long as the 1/4" is plugged in, the pre-amp is on and using battery. If you do not unplug after use, your pre-amp's battery will drain out.

Hi Dave! It would help a lot if you put up some pictures  ;)
