(Vintage) 1920s Washburn Parlor Guitar Model 1915 Brazilian Rosewood Back & Sides/Adirondack Spruce Top (Vintage) 1920s Washburn Parlor Guitar Model 1915 Brazilian Rosewood Back & Sides/Adirondack Spruce Top

From Premier Guitar: "At the time this guitar was made, Washburn was part of Lyon & Healy, a company that started in 1864 as a partnership of businessmen George Washburn Lyon and Patrick J. Healy. Lyon & Healy was originally formed to distribute the popular sheet music of Boston-based publisher the Oliver Dotson Company. By 1865, Lyon & Healy had expanded into making reed organs and some small instruments. The Washburn brand achieved independence by 1880, and around 1888 it launched fully into fretted and plucked instruments (guitars, mandolins, banjos, and zithers) under the Washburn name, which makes Washburn the second oldest guitar line in the U.S.—following Martin, which was established in 1833. Production of the Model 1915 began in 1915 and ended in 1921, so our example is from the final year of manufacturing.

Top: Adirondack Spruce

Back & Sides: Brazilian Rosewood

Neck: Mahogany 

Neck Profile: 

Nut Width: 1-3/4"

Tech Notes: Bridge & saddle has been replaced (not original). Neck has been reset. There is a 1-1/2" crack on the back, lower bout that appears to have been there for a while. In our opinion, it shouldn't move any further as it is square in between two ladder braces.
