The vintage tone of this big bodied guitar is supplied by its traditional Sitka Spruce top using quartersawn scalloped bracing for support.

The soundhole features an abalone rosette and the body is wrapped by a cream multi-lam binding that come with rope purfling details. Just by looking at the pictures, you can see that aesthetics is an important aspect of this guitar's design.

Rosewood seems to be a good part of the guitar's motif, the guitar has a rosewood capped headstock, a rosewood bridge, and its 24.75" scale mahogany neck is topped by a rosewood fretboard. These rosewood elements are embellished with pearl designs, including the Washburn logo and the matching pearl snow flake inlays that grace the instruments 20 fret neck.

Adding to its vintage look is its Distressed Wilkinson brass butter bean tuners which were purposely selected to match the guitar's "aged" finish. It also has bone compensated saddles and a bone nut. Finally, the guitar comes with an inconspicuous passive piezo pickup mounted under the bridge for live performance.
