Dreadnoughts




This Washburn Dreadnought is bold in design and aesthetics. The instrument is built lightweight in construction, yet has a powerful voice. It is made of beautiful Mahogany and has a sunburst pattern on almost every surface. The amorphous shape pickguard is a gorgeous tiger-stripe design made of nitrocellulous. These models are very rare, and this is one of the few examples to survive the 20th century.
