The 1939 Washburn Solo DeLuxe Super Auditorium 5246 is the inspiration behind the all-solid Revival Series Solo DeLuxe. Period details such as the narrow “Crown” headstock, 1939 Vintage Sunburst, Ivoroid binding and rosette, fingerboard inlay, and period faux-tortoise pickguard combine to create a visually stunning acoustic guitar.
The Torrefaction process is applied to both soundboard and bracing to age these materials such that internal resins are crystallized and suspended water removed; much like what would naturally happen over the course of 20+ years of air drying. Mated with solid Pau Ferro back and sides and a bone nut and saddle the result is its Pre-war voice that will cause pause to anyone listening to this magnificent instrument. The Solo DeLuxe’s 1-3/4″ nut width and narrow C shaped neck optimize playing comfort. Graphtech Ratio-Tuned open-back tuners and D’Addario EXP light gauge phosphor bronze strings complete this exquisite instrument. Deluxe Hardshell case included.
The G100SWE is guitar outfitted with Fishman’s Sonitone GT-2 pickup system. This non-invasive undersaddle pickup system features a volume and tone control accessible at the soundhole and provides Fishman’s world famous acoustic-electric tone.
