Washburn WSD5249 Warren Haynes Signature Acoustic
Washburn welcomes Allman Brother's guitarist Warren Haynes into their family with the new WSD5249 Signature Acoustic.
The instrument is handmade in the US, designed to meet the exacting demands of high caliber artists such as Haynes.
Warren will now be playing and endorsing the new Washburn WSD5249 Warren Haynes Signature Model acoustic guitar, which according to Washburn represents the pinnacle of their acoustic guitar artistry.
Known for his tasteful, soulful and toneful playing, hordes of rock guitar players look to Warren Haynes as their guitar hero. His work with the Allman Brothers, Gov't Mule and his own Warren Haynes Band continue to inspire players everywhere. And as a testament to his influence, he was recently ranked #23 in Rolling Stone Magazine's top 100 guitarists of all time.
In order to match Hayne's prestige, Washburn came up with a design based on the old Washburn Solo Deluxe from 1937. The result is a guitar with a modern OM body shape, premium tone woods and vintage details.
The top is made of Adirondack spruce, with period-correct vintage sunburst finish. Supporting the top is a hand-shaped scalloped bracing made of Adirondack spruce. The sides are made of solid rosewood, which supported by a 2-piece back, split by a vintage-inspired '30s zipper-style inlaid herringbone stripe. A 3-ply ivoroid binding highlights the shape of the guitar, along with the sound hole, which is finished by a ringed herringbone rosette. Adding to the vintage vibe is a hand-cut tortoise-shell celluloid pickguard.
The mahogany neck of the WSD5249 is v-shaped, joining the body at the 14th fret and topped a bound ebony fretboard. Connected to the neck is a '30s style rosewood capped headstock with intricately inlaid pearl appointments and period-correct Washburn logo. Intonation is maintained by a set of Grover Butterbean tuners, paired with a compensated bone saddle on top of the guitar's fully-carved solid ebony bridge.
The Washburn WSD5249 Warren Haynes Signature is hand-built in Washburn's Buffalo Grove, USA Factory, with an MSRP of $5,332. For further details, you can visit Washburn.
