make / manufacturer: Washburn
model name / number: Style 340 Grand Concert
Here we have the cream of turn of the century Chicago guitars. The Style 340 was from Washburn's very top line. Solid Brazilian rosewood back and sides. Solid spruce top. Mahogany neck. 25" scale. Recently had a perfectly performed reset by master luthier Ed Dick of Victor guitar in Denver. This guitar is a fingerpicker's dream. The bass is very tight and controlled so one can really "lean into it" without blowing out the bass. (Mississippi John Hurt Lovers will know what I mean). The soundboard and strings are VERY even all the way across. Hairline crack up to the middle of the bridge (long ago repaired, cleated and stabilized) and some minor checking are the only real flaws. The abalone inlays up and down the fretboard and headstock are works of beauty. Has X-bracing, which was rare for the time. This guitar plays itself and is ready to do so. Just set up, again by Ed Dick. Perfect tuning, perfect intonation, perfect sound. The only other known 340 for sale a dealer has at $6500 at the moment. Do NOT confuse this with cheaper Washburn models of the time, or god forbid, anything made by the modern day Washburn (not the same company). These guitars were made to and did compete with Martin at the time. And they did. Comes in what can't be the original case, but oh well. We're talking about art here. We're talking about history. We're talking about tone. You will NEVER see another 340 again. They're gone. $3500. #guitar#guitarsofinstagram#guitarsforsale#guitars#washburn#acousticguitar#prewarguitar#parlorguitar#wilco#davidrawlings#gillianwelch#rare#handmade#tone

Tl;dr my husband just did the coolest thing... so far.
Once upon a time, my grandpa bought an old, beat-up $3 guitar from a garage sale (the before pic is at the very end). As it turns out, it's a 1941 Epiphone Zephyr. Designed by Herb Sunshine, the Zephyr was introduced in 1939 as Epiphone's fanciest electric model, and in the ever-popular Les Paul's early days, he collected Zephyr models exclusively. Anyway, enough nerd stuff.
My incredibly talented husband COMPLETELY restored this drop-dead gorgeous guitar, my grandpa is a very happy guy, and I was given the great honor of doing the glamour shots. 🤘🎸
If you would like to see the progress pictures, @jd_core posted them as he worked. You can find them on his profile, as well as the rest of the amazing work he does!
Pre-War Guitar Co, coming soon to MGS! Building some of the finest vintage-inspired acoustics to date, @prewarguitars are masterfully crafted by Wes Lambe and Ben Maschal right here in North Carolina! More details coming soon.
Elvis Costello, Jeff Tweedy, and @verbageddon can't all be wrong. Make your next Gibsunday a 30s small bodied Gibson. *I have yet to be paid to promote guitars Gibson no longer makes. They should pay me though, or at least buy Kaia some treats... #gibson#kalamazoo#acousticguitar#acousticguitar#prewarguitar
Pra todo mundo que tem um sonho. 🙏🏽
Desde criança, eu escuto esse instrumento, nas mãos dos artistas que mais admiro.. A música me fez querer ser assim, e guiou minha vida por um caminho positivo, e fundamental.
Sempre sonhei em ter um violão feito “pra mim”, um dia.. mas não fazia ideia do trabalho e cuidado envolvidos nisso.. talvez a ficha ainda não tenha caído. .
Esse post é pra agradecer o carinho, talento e generosidade do @maxrosaguitars e do meu amigão @abelborges1 , por fazer nascer uma coisa tão bonita e pura. Que Deus proteja as mãos de vocês, sempre.
Também quero agradecer novamente à @nigmusic , ao @sydneicarvalho e ao @italoluthier , por acreditarem no meu trabalho, e pelo carinho e paciência com que me tratam.
Peço a Deus que me permita sempre fazer música, e que nela exista algo de bom pras pessoas. Obrigado! 🙏🏽
PSA! Save yourself the crack repair, bridge repair and brace repair by humidifying your acoustic guitar, right now. The dry air in the winter time will ruin every acoustic from @yamahamusicusa to @taylorguitars to @prewarguitars.
I recommend the @kysermusicalproducts Lifeguard Humidifier. I've humidified lots of split guitar tops back together with these things. They keep the humidity in the box of the guitar instead of letting it drift out like the string dangling humidifiers do. They cost a fraction of the price it takes me to repair your dried out guitar. The @musicloftofcarrboro has them in stock and I'm happy to show you how they work.
