Washburn Guitars Introduces New Parlour Sized Resonator Guitar -
PRESS RELEASE: Washburn Guitars is pleased to add a new and unique parlour sized resonator to its line of resonator guitars, the R360K. With the current popularity of Folk and Americana music styles, the R360K brings a unique voice to the genre, thanks to its smaller body. Players looking to add new colours to their tonal palate via slide or fingerstyle will find the R360K to be the ideal instrument.
The R360K is a parlour guitar with a biscuit resonator cone. It has the look and feel of a guitar that would have been made in the early 20th century and played well since. It features a spruce top and Trembesi back and sides with a mahogany neck. The old style slotted headstock features distressed classical style tuners and classy pearl inlaid Washburn logo. The rosewood fingerboard showcases period correct traditional pearl inlays and has a 48mm nut width to facilitate fingerpicking or slide styles. A custom cover plate with an antique bronze finish matches the tailpiece and tuner hardware. Mirror image f holes adorn both sides of the fingerboard extension.
The Washburn R360K will be available in June 2014 with an expected UK RRP of £559 RRP inc VAT.
