"Washburn is onto a winner with the Parallaxe range and if the PXS10FRQTR is anything to go by then some of the other brands producing guitars within this genre should be paying attention. This is a pro-spec guitar of serious quality."

Announcements & News / Washburn Guitars Introduces a New Mandolin Banjo
« on: January 23, 2014, 03:01:49 PM »
Buffalo Grove, January 23, 2014 - Washburn Guitars is proud to introduce to its Bluegrass Series a unique Mandolin Banjo. Enabling mandolin players to emulate banjo tones as well as being a bit louder than a standard mandolin, the Mandolin Banjo will add a new dimension to your performances.

Based on Washburn’s Mandolin Banjos of the 1910s and 1920s, the BM3 is a 4 chorus 13.75” scale Mandolin Banjo. It features a walnut rim and resonator back plate which maximizes volume, mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard- a classic combination that provides rich full tone, and open gear tuners for a traditional look. The resonator is also removable to drop the volume for more intimate venues or performances. The genuine Remo® head supports a maple bridge with ebony tip. Tuned like a mandolin, G-D-A-E, the BM3 opens up a whole new world of sonic possibilities. Strung with D’Addario strings, the BM3 retails for $533.90

Washburn Guitars Presents the WCG66SCE Acoustic/Electric Guitar

Buffalo Grove, January 23, 2014 - Washburn Guitars introduces the WCG66SCE acoustic/electric guitar. The newest addition to the Comfort Series is highlighted by deluxe features and stunning visual appeal.

The WCG66SCE is a Grand Auditorium style acoustic/electric guitar with a venetian cutaway for superior upper fret access. A highlight of the Comfort Series is the beveled strip of mahogany at the lower bout which becomes part of the mahogany top binding. The guitar features a book matched solid Cedar top, spalted maple back and sides, mahogany/maple bound body and headstock. The satin finished mahogany neck has an ebony fingerboard devoid of inlays and in tandem with the mahogany bound ebony bridge adds an aura of understated elegance. A maple/mahogany/maple strip splits the book matched spalted maple back as well. The spalted maple capped headstock features a pearl inlaid Washburn logo and stylized W as well as Grover® 18:1 tuners with ebonite buttons. The gorgeous rosette is made of alternating maple and mahogany.

The WCG66SCE is a fantastic sounding acoustic guitar in its own right but the addition of premium Fishman electronics makes for an outstanding stage performance guitar. The Fishman® Presys+ is an integrated tuner/preamp system for versatile amplified tonal shaping.

The WCG66SCE is strung with D’Addario strings and is an amazing acoustic/electric guitar as well as an outstanding value. Suggested Retail Price is $1,247.90.

Buffalo Grove, IL, January 23, 2014 — Washburn Guitars is pleased to add a new and unique parlor sized resonator to its line of resonator guitars, the R360K. With the current popularity of Folk and Americana music styles, the R360K brings a unique voice to the genre, thanks to its smaller body. Players looking to add new colors to their tonal palate via slide or fingerstyle will find the R360K to be the ideal instrument.

The R360K is a parlor guitar with a biscuit resonator cone. It has the look and feel of a guitar that would have been made in the early 20th century and played well since. It features a spruce top and Trembesi back and sides with a mahogany neck. The old style slotted headstock features distressed classical style tuners and classy pearl inlaid Washburn logo and design. The rosewood fingerboard showcases period correct traditional pearl inlays and has a 48mm nut width to facilitate fingerpick or slide styles. A custom cover plate with antique bronze finish matches the tailpiece and tuner hardware. Mirror image f holes adorn both sides of the fingerboard extension.

The R360K is equipped with D’Addario strings and includes a Washburn hardshell case. It retails for $1,069.90.

Buffalo Grove, IL, January 21, 2014 — Washburn is pleased to announce the arrival of three new Idol models at this year’s NAMM in Anaheim, CA.

The flagship Idol, the USA Custom Shop WI68XVCG, makes its triumphant return in the stylish Cognac finish. It features a mahogany body with flame maple cap showcasing a reveal binding that lets the beauty of the flame show through. The mahogany neck sports a 22 fret rosewood fingerboard containing beautiful offset figured maple block inlays. Accented with classic gold hardware that includes Grover® 18:1 Rotomatic tuners, Tone Pros® Tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece and gold knobs. Gold covered coil tapped Seymour Duncan SH1N neck and SH11 bridge pickups complete this tonally versatile package.
The WI68XVCG is equipped with D’Addario strings and comes with a Washburn GC5 hardshell case. It retails for $3,999.90.

Continuing with our vintage finish inspired guitars comes the WI60V Idol. It features a solid mahogany spruce veneer capped body and a mahogany set neck with recessed heel for upper fret access. The 22 fret rosewood fingerboard accentuates the pearloid block inlays and the matte black capped headstock features pearloid Washburn logo and stylized inlay. The vintaged hardware compliments the finish and features a tune-o-matic bridge with stop tailpiece and Grover® 18:1 tuners with ebonite buttons to tie in with the ebony control knobs. Dual humbuckers give the guitar a warm, creamy tone. The WI60V comes equipped with D’Addario EX-120 strings and retails for $890.90.

Originally introduced 15 years ago, the WI64 was the very first Idol model. The 2014 model WI64TRK reproduces every detail of the original right down to the revolutionary VCC tone controls. VCC varies the humbucker pickups from full humbucking mode to coil tapped mode and every tonal color in between. Go from thick crunchy tones to near single coil pristine tones by just rotating the knob. The WI64 features a thin mahogany body with set mahogany neck. The 22 fret rosewood fingerboard has dot inlays and the headstock features a gloss black cap with pearl Washburn logo and stylized W inlay. Hardware includes smooth operating chrome Grover® 18:1 tuners, tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece.
The WI64TRK comes in Trans Red, is equipped with D’Addario strings and includes a Washburn GB4 gigbag. It retails for $890.90

Chicago, January 21, 2014 – Washburn is proud to introduce the new Willie Kahaiali’I, “Willie K”, Signature Jumbo Acoustic Guitar model WJ55SCENS.

With a slightly wider than standard nut of 44mm, the WJ55SCENS is a 25.5” scale Jumbo Acoustic Guitar with a cutaway and Fishman Electronics. It features a solid spruce top with quarter sawn scalloped Sitka spruce bracing for strength without weight, Koa back and sides and maple neck. The beautiful abalone binding ties in nicely with the abalone rosette as does the rosewood fingerboard with the rosewood bridge.
