Washburn introduces solid wood travel guitar

Washburn Guitars has garnered rave reviews for their Timbercraft line of solid wood acoustic guitars. Available in both dreadnaught and jumbo body styles, the Timbercraft guitars retail between $1,000-$1,500, an attractive price point for value-conscious guitarists – and notably lower than is often expected for solid wood instruments.

The newest Timbercraft entry is their B52SW, a travel sized guitar offered for $600, including a padded gig bag. Even with a much smaller body size, Washburn says that the guitar has a volume and a tonal richness not found in most travel instruments, owing to its being built with all solid woods. This guitar has a solid spruce top, with solid mahogany back and sides, a mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, bone nut and saddle, maple binding, and gold tuners with black buttons.

There are no images of the B52SW on the Washburn site at this time, but we have requested one from their media office, and will post any we can obtain here if we receive them.

The guitars are distributed through retailers all over the world, and you can search for a dealer near you on the Washburn site. Surely they will have more information on these solid wood travel guitars shortly.

UPDATE 4/27: You can now find product details on the Wasburn site for the B52SW.
