DESCRIPTION
Here is a very rare acoustic . This is a late 30's Washburn Model 5244 . Dreadnought acoustics were not very common in the 30's until Gibson and Martin started producing them . This model was produced in very limited numbers , its a double X braced with a wonderful V neck . The guitar has been restored , its had a neck reset with a newer neck block , some top cracks have been repaired as well as a headstock repair . The guitar is also refinished and has a new bridge . The restoration is top notch and the guitar is structurally sound , the top is flat and the neck angle is perfect . The guitar has incredible tone with nice clarity , its dry but very open sounding. This one is really nice ! w/older hardshell case
