ACOUSTIC GUITARS
WASHBURN
A brief history
Steeped in the tradition of fine instrument making, Washburn Guitar's dynamic 120-history began in Chicago in 1883. The original guitar factory was located just blocks away from Maxwell Street.

In the early 1920s, Maxwell Street itself would emerge as the epicenter of a musical movement. Often considered the first entry point for thousands of African-Americans arriving from the Mississippi Delta, Maxwell Street became a hotbed for Delta Blues in its most raw and dramatic form. Newcomers and established musicians alike would listen and jam with one and other in an atmosphere void of commercial influence. Once recorded, this powerful, emotional style of music would not only become the dominant form of blues but would radically change the emerging sound of rock and roll.

There, on Maxwell Street, as well as in alleyways, city sidewalks, bars, and honky-tonks around the country, Washburn guitars were embraced as the very embodiment and reflective spirit of the hard-working musicians who played them as well as the employees who designed and crafted them. It is the same spirit that guides Washburn to this day.

The history of Washburn Guitars is the history of a wide range of musicians. From blues players who shaped rock 'n roll to multi-platinum recording artists to emerging guitar virtuosos. It is a history that can be heard and experienced every time you turn on the radio or listen to a live performance. It is a history built by skilled craftsmen and musicians who share one common love–a passion for the guitar.
Guitar Studio Washburn LSJ749

Washburn Lakeside Jumbo LSJ749

Washburn Lakeside Jumbo LSJ749
The LSJ749 is Washburn's latest model referencing their Lakeside Jumbo which they originally introduced in 1912 and is considered to be the first dreadnought sized guitar - preceding Martin's dreadnought by about 4 years. It bridged the gap between smaller bodied parlour guitars of the late 19th and early 20th century and modern day dreadnought and jumbo acoustic guitars. 100 years later Washburn have captured the essence of that model with modern materials to provide a truly inspired, unique and special instrument with its own voice.

The USA version of this guitar is hand built and signed in our USA Custom Shop by Terry Atkins. It features a solid Adirondack spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides. The scalloped bracing is hand shaped and the entire guitar is voiced by Terry.
