This 1932 Washburn 5234 is one of the most exciting guitars currently in the shop. While 1930's Washburns (Chicago-made guitars in general, for that matter) don't garner the fanfare of Martins and Gibsons, those who've had the good fortune to play them will tell you the truth: these are great sounding guitars, with a voice all their own. This 5234 comes to us from a client with great taste; and it's easy to see why he saw fit to own this guitar. Aside from its super-cool aesthetic, it's wonderfully light and responsive, with a gigantic sound. It's got a poppier midrange than a comparable Martin 12-fret 000-28, but the voice is no less lush and complex. The lightning-fast response and chunky neck make it a joy to play, whether with a flatpick or bare fingers. And before we get carried away, we invite you to enjoy the video of Jordan Tice capably showing off what this guitar has to offer.

Its overall condition is very good, with one significant area of playwear on the top. The tuners are modern replicas; and the bridge shows evidence of being reglued at some point in the past. Neck angle is excellent, and the guitar requires no setup work at this time. All other specs are standard for the model and era, including Rosewood back & sides, Spruce top, Ebony fingerboard & bridge, Mahogany neck, 1 7/8" nut width, 25.4" scale length, and 2 3/8" string spacing.
