OVERVIEW

Solidly constructed recreation of early Washburn model with modern appointments.

The Vintage Series recreates or resembles some of the great Washburn instruments that were crafted in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Included are parlor-sized models like the R320SWRK. In order to create the "vibe" of a 100-year-old instrument that has been well-played but not abused, Washburn has added a vintage finish and distressed hardware. Because this guitar is built using modern techniques and materials, the resulting instrument is more durable, and in many cases, better sounding than its century-old counterpart.

The R320SWRK Vintage Series Parlor Guitar features a solid spruce top with solid rosewood back and sides with quartersawn scalloped Sitka spruce bracing. The V-neck is mahogany with an 18-fret ebony fingerboard featuring "Tree of Life" inlays. Other appointments include a 45mm bone nut, distressed open gear tuners, and D'Addario strings. 


Includes case.

    Comments about Washburn R320SWRK Vintage Series Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

    This guitar is great. I have played many guitars from really cheap ones to very expensive ones and this guitar feels and plays like a guitar that cost twice as much as it does. Every detail is amazing. If the sound you are looking for is a blues or country sound then this is the guitar for you. Is so easy to play and the case that comes with it looks great too. Don't even think about it just buy it.

    Comments about Washburn R320SWRK Vintage Series Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

    Set up/action are nice out of the box. "V" neck was no problem. The case was kinda tacky and the tuning machines will probably have to be replaced. On the positive side, the look of the guitar inspires me to work on Blind Lemon and Blind Blake tunes. This is my third Washburn so it's pretty much what I expected.....playable and affordable.

      Comments about Washburn R320SWRK Vintage Series Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

      Purchased as a companion to the Washburn style C tenor banjo that I own.

      It is the ying to my yang... the feminine completion of its' vintage masculine predecessor... It is Perfect.

      Rosewood back and sides, V shaped mahogany neck with beautiful inlay, Solid spruce top. The tuners look and work great. It is so small and yet has such a large full sound that I am amazed.

      It is my favorite guitar.

        Comments about Washburn R320SWRK Vintage Series Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

        Cons:
        The neck profile is almost comically sharp... a little bit of shoulder would have gone a long way here.

        The three-on-a-plate tuners are functional, but if I keep playing this guitar, these have to go. Some Grover Sta-Tites, or StewMac Golden Age, perhaps.

        There are a few minor cosmetic factory imperfections on mine, most of them involving the binding. You wouldn't see these on a similarly priced Epiphone, in my experience. Similarly, I wish they'd just used some tasteful dots on the fingerboard, instead of tree of life with gaps and filler in evidence.

        Pros:
        A few turns of the truss rod brought the action right down to a very playable level. The bone nut and saddle have been cut correctly.

        The vintage vibe is achieved with this finish. All satin, and the top is a dark natural color, like you might expect of a 100 year old guitar. Mine has no light relic like I've seen on some photos. The finish feels quite thin, definitely no goopy urethane here. In fact, it's probably going to wear through on the edges pretty quickly, which will blend nicely with the vintage look.

        The main thing is the sound. It's LOUD, like you can expect from a 12-fret. And the "tone for days" saying... applies here. Open notes just ring and ring. LOTS of low end. If you're not used to playing a 12-fret, you'll be amazed how this big sound comes from such a small body. The solid rosewood back/sides certainly help here.

        Conclusion: it's good for the price. If you can afford a bit more, Eastman is a lot better built for not that much more money. But if you're stretching for this one, you won't be disappointed.
