Announcements & News / Warren Haynes is Joining the Washburn Family

Washburn Guitars is Proud to Announce the Addition of Warren Haynes to its Signature Artist Roster

Washburn Guitars is excited to announce that Allman Brothers Band and Gov't Mule legendary guitarist, Warren Haynes, is joining the Washburn family. Warren will be playing and endorsing the new Washburn WSD5249 Warren Haynes Signature Model acoustic guitar. This Made in USA model represents the pinnacle of Washburn acoustic guitar artistry while celebrating Washburn's 130 year heritage and fits perfectly with an artist of Haynes' caliber.

The WSD5249 comes equipped with D'Addario strings and has a voice all its own that is sweet, articulate, airy and refined - perfect for fingerstyle, slide or any style where individual string definition is required.

As current vocalist and guitarist in both Gov't Mule, The Allman Brothers and Warren Haynes Band, Warren is perhaps the hardest working musician in rock. He is known for his extremely tasty and heartfelt playing and is very particular about his tone. In addition to his heavy touring schedule, he does solo acoustic shows and sits in with others whenever he can. The list of people he's played or jammed with reads like a who's who of famous and world class musicians of varying styles including Eric Clapton, Steve Miller, Peter Frampton, Bob Dylan, BB King, Coheed and Cambria, Sheryl Crow, Dave Matthews and performed as a member of The Dead on their 2004 & 2009 reunion tours. And that's just the short list and part of the reason he took the #23 slot on Rolling Stone Magazine's top 100 guitarists of all time.

Proudly hand-built in the Buffalo Grove, USA Factory, the Washburn WSD5249 acoustic guitar is based on the original Washburn Solo Deluxe from 1937, which is similar in size to the popular OM shaped guitars commonly found on the market today.  We feature a premium Adirondack Spruce top with period-correct vintage sunburst finish.  Hand-shaped scalloped Adirondack Spruce bracing masterfully joins the top and solid rosewood sides while the beautiful 2-piece back is split by a vintage-inspired '30s zipper-style inlaid herringbone stripe. The top is framed-out beautifully by 3-ply ivoroid binding and the sound hole is expertly bound and finished by a gorgeous ringed herringbone rosette. The hand-cut tortoise-shell celluloid pickguard rounds out the vintage vibe while the fully-carved solid ebony bridge supports a compensated bone saddle for improved intonation, delicately nuanced tone and singing sustain.

The comfortable, soft V shaped mahogany neck joins the body at the 14th fret and is adorned with a '30s style rosewood capped headstock with intricately inlaid pearl appointments and period-correct Washburn logo. High quality GroverĀ® Butterbean tuners ensure smooth, high-ratio tuning accuracy and unmatched stability. The seamlessly bound ebony fingerboard couples perfectly with the ebony bridge and the bone nut finishes the expertly crafted instrument ensuring every nuance was attended to.

The new 2013 Washburn catalog is now posted on the Website here.

 Washburn Guitars introduces the WJ130EK jumbo acoustic/electric guitar as part of its Vintage Series. The Vintage Series recreates the style, and vintage look and feel of some of the great Washburn instruments that were crafted in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The WJ130EK is a jumbo style acoustic/electric guitar and features a Sitka spruce top with quarter sawn scalloped bracing and beautiful rosewood back and sides. An abalone rosette and cream multi-lam binding with rope purfling add a touch of class. The rosewood capped headstock features a pearl Washburn logo and the rosewood fingerboard features pearl snowflake inlays. A rosewood bridge comes with a bone compensated saddle which works in tandem with the bone nut to add power, sustain and clarity. Distressed Wilkinson brass butter bean tuners hearken back to a more elegant era. As with all instruments in the Vintage Series, the WJ130EK has a vintaged finish to mimic the look a 100 year old instrument might have.

The WJ130EK produces a big sound with plenty of bass. Mids are warm but lightly scooped with clear, bright highs. A passive piezo pickup is mounted under the bridge for live performance. A squared off vintage style hardshell case is included.

The WJ130EK with case carries a Suggested Retail Price of $890.90.

More info can be found here.

The newest addition to the Comfort Series is highlighted by deluxe features and stunning visual appeal.
