Body: Spruce top on a rosewood body

Neck: Mahogany neck with a large "V" profile, 1 3/4" wide nut, ebony fretboard, 12" radius, and dot inlays

Neck Thickness: .9" at the 1st fret, 1.11" at the 12th fret

Pickups/Hardware:Open-back tuners, no electronics

Cosmetic Condition: The body is aging gracefully, with plenty of checking lines, scratches, and finish chipping (mostly along the backside edges). The neck has plenty of ding and dents, as well as a fair amount of attractive finish loss along its edges. The headstock has a moderate smattering of edgewear, as well as a fair bit of scratches and dings. This Washburn is ready to sing!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board. There is a bit of play within the rotation of the tuners. The saddle is low and the there is no truss rod, limiting action adjustability.

Modifications/Repairs: The endpin has been drilled out and replaced by a large dowel. There is a replacement strap button drilled into the dowel. The low "E" tuner grip looks to have been welded back onto its shaft. The bridge pins and rear strap button have been replaced.
