(PRESS RELEASE): Washburn Guitars has announced the addition of 3 new Parlour sized guitars with built in Fishman® Sonitone electronics to its Parlour Series. The new Parlours are based on existing acoustic only models.
All 3 Parlour guitars are 24.75” scale and feature a natural stain finish, solid cedar top supported by quarter sawn scalloped sitka spruce bracing, abalone rosette and standard Washburn rosewood bridge. The mahogany neck features a rosewood fingerboard with 44mm nut and gold open gear tuners. These specs produce a nicely balanced tone perfect for fingerpicking and singer/song writers. The addition of Fishman® Sonitone electronics make these guitars ideal performance instruments.
The WP26SENS features beautiful rosewood back and sides with highly stylised pearl fingerboard inlays (see above image)
The WP21SENS specs are identical to the WP26SENS with the exception of pearl dot inlays on the fingerboard.
The WP11SENS features mahogany back and sides for a slightly more focused, articulate tone and has pearl dot fingerboard inlays.
All models are expected to ship in the UK in Summer 2015.
