Each offering up something special, including; repurposed wood that is 140 years old and awesome ergonomic body shapes that make playing more comfortable than ever! These are the some of the best acoustic guitars and mandolins that Washburn has to offer.

Revival Series

The Revival Series is something special that Washburn is bringing to their line. Revival Series guitars all draw inspiration from Washburn guitars built in the early 1900’s to the “Dirty-30’s” era of guitar building. Inspired by simple styling of the 1930’s but offering all the modern features of today. With period accurate features including body shape, and tuner. So you can play a little piece of the past and get a feel of how things started out with the RSD135-D or the RSG100SWEVSK-D-U!

Built from reclaimed wood that is 140 years old, the timeless collection is rare and unique. They used European Fir beams, trusses and joists from old buildings like farms, pubs and bridges in the UK. A very small percentage of wood is suitable for the Timeless Collection. Some of the mandolins that we are thrilled to be stocking are: WAS TCMC43SWK, the WAS TCMA43SWK, and WAS TCMF43SWK.
