Washburn Introduces Two New Vintage Styled Mandolins

United States
English
Chicago, IL, 4 March, 2008. In conjunction with Washburn’s 125th anniversary we proudly introduce 2 new vintage styled mandolins. These mandolins feature a worn/used look as well as aged hardware and a thinner satin finish for a broken in and well played feel. Only premium woods like solid flamed maple and solid spruce have been used in crafting these fine instruments.

Lyon & Healy, Washburn’s parent company in the 19th century, was the first American manufacturer of mandolins and Washburn began making mandolins in 1887. The new mandolins echo the trends in mandolin styles of the early 20th century which remain the popular mandolin styles of choice today.

The M118SW is a Florentine style mandolin with aged hardware and ebonite tuner buttons with a hand carved solid spruce top and solid flamed maple sides and back. Retail price is $1,349.90.

The M116SW is an A style mandolin with aged hardware and ebonite tuner buttons with a hand carved solid spruce top and solid flamed maple sides and back. Retail price is $1,149.90.
