The R360SMK parlor guitar is based on designs Washburn used over 100 years ago and features a biscuit resonator cone. It has the look and feel of a guitar that would have been made in the early 20th century and played well since. It features a spalted maple top and sides with rosewood sides and a mahogany neck. The old-style slotted headstock features distressed classical-style tuners and classy pearl inlaid Washburn logo and design. The rosewood fingerboard showcases period correct traditional pearl inlays and has a 48mm nut width to facilitate fingerpick or slide styles. A custom cover plate with antique bronze finish matches the tailpiece and tuner hardware. Mirror image f holes adorn both sides of the fingerboard extension.
With the current popularity of folk and Americana music styles, the R360K brings a unique voice to the genre, thanks to its smaller body. Players looking to add new colors to their tonal palate via slide or fingerstyle will find the R360K to be the ideal instrument.

Comments about Washburn R360SMK Parlor Resonator Guitar with 1930's Style Inlay:
I had high hopes for this particular Washburn product! However, this was the third example of this guitar that I received from Guitar Center. The first had a great spalted maple figuration, was set up with great action and had great resonator tone - however the cover plate was installed off center, which meant the strings were not symmetrical down the fretboard (high string very close to the edge). The second had impossibly high action (great for slide), had poor tone and almost non-existent maple figuration and the finish was not as good as the first. The third example fell somewhere in between... the finish was not really very good, the tone OK and the spalted maple figuration minimal. The strings were also off-center on the fretboard. So, because I really like the overall design of this instrument, I dismantled it and reworked the saddle to correct the string spacing and alignment. It now sounds like a decent resonator with acceptable action for fingerstyle playing. Overall, I think this product is extremely inconsistent on build and attention to detail on finish. Very disappointed with this particular product as I have had good experiences with Washburn products in the past. This is also one of the problems with ordering online where the product is unseen...
