Early 1880's Washburn Brazilian Rosewood/Adirondack Spruce parlor guitar. Dating comes from the Washburn book which states that some of the earliest guitars from Washburn sported solid headstocks and friction type tuners. This one came to me from Washington State quite a few years ago as a basket case. The neck was not attached, although it appears that at one time someone had attempted to tighten the neck joint with a bolt through the heal, and the headblock. There was no fretboard present and the back was off of the guitar, but it was crack free. The original Stay Tights were missing, and by the holes on the back of the headstock it was apparent someone had installed Klusons at one time, although they too were long gone. The top bracing (ladder style) had also been removed, and this work had been done in a professional manner. There were no cracks in the top and the original bridge was still attached. I struggled for a while trying to decide what this guitars fate would be, and what you see before you is the result. The top was rebraced in a traditional Martin style, keeping them strong enough to handle D'Addario light guage strings. The top had a slight dome shape originally (modern style) so that was maintained in the rebrace. I installed a maple bridge plate, ala Martin, and scalloped the braces in the prewar style. I added two side support/kicker braces at the front of the X's for extra strength. The back braces were removed and reglued as they were all loose and the back was reinstalled. The neck heal on this guitar is quite small, but fortunately proved to be enough for the reset. A plug was installed in the bolt hole throug
