Their R360K offers a resonator guitar with a parlor sized body, with a shaded spruce top and back and sides of Trembesi, a South American tone wood now also common in southern Asia.
This is offered as a round neck reso. It is priced with a Washburn hardshell case for $1,069.
Three new banjos have been added to the Washburn line, one each for 5 string, 6 string and 8 string.
For guitarists, their B6 offers a 6 string neck on a banjo body, with a typical 22 fret scale. It has a mahogany neck and rim, and a $534 list price.
And mandolinists can check out the new BM3 mandolin banjo. These were popular items for Washburn in the early part of the 20th century, and the current models are similarly appointed. The rim and back plate are walnut, with a 13.75” scale mahogany neck. It also lists for $534.
