Washburn introduces bluegrass guitar

Washburn D64SW Washburn Guitars has announced their newest acoustic dreadnaught guitar, the D64SW, just in time for the NAMM Winter Show in Anaheim, CA (1/18-21/07).

The D64, which Washburn has dubbed “The Bluegrass,” is a solid wood guitar, with a spruce top and rosewood back and sides. The neck is mahogany with a rosewood fingerboard, bone nut and saddle, and a tortoise look pick guard.

They describe the guitar as being made with a bluegrass picker in mind.

“This guitar is designed to produce precise tones with crisp highs and a pronounced, defined bottom end with volume ideally suited to the Bluegrass player.”

“The Bluegrass” will ship with a deluxe hardshell case and carry a retail price of $1,499.90. You can search for Washburn dealers on their web site, or check out the new guitars at booth #5244 if you’ll be attending the NAMM Show in Anaheim.
