A pre-war gem that has been greatly cared for and that's ready for more pickin' and grinnin'. This 1922 mando carries with it mojo and tone for days thanks to years of perfectly settling in. This instrument has aged like a fine wine.
The label with all of its identifying marks has been marred, but the gear sleuths here at EMS were able to get to the bottom of the details on this incredible instrument. It is crafted with rosewood back/sides with a pear shaped body and outfitted with a mahogany neck that feels great. It sports an ebony 20-fret fingerboard with pearl dots.
The headstock features a rosewood overlay and engraved metal back plate.
A compensated ebony bridge plus bone saddle, wing shaped tortoise pickguard, a crown shaped nickel plated tailpiece cover round out the traditional appointments of this classic instrument.
Not exactly a museum piece, but damn is it clean?! There are light signs of age and use but to be 100 years old, this beauty is nearly spotless.
The pro techs here at EMS have gone through this mando to insure that it is cleaned up, restrung, and ready for stage or studio. It is still alive and kickin' and ready for more stages, more studios, more songs.
Grab this pre-war Washburn for your new picker and it'll ship out the next day with the included chipboard case.
