Washburn AB-10

I made this baritone guitar out of a Washburn AB-10. At sometime in it’s past it had an issue with the bridge lifting and it appears that it has been expertly repaired. I looked at it closely and I doubt it will ever be a problem – particularly with the lower tension of regular guitar strings instead of bass strings. It has a few other small dings and scratches but nothing obvious.

This guitar has a thin body and is not my loudest guitar. It does have a warm mellow tone that projects more than you would think acoustically. Plug it into an amp and it becomes an absolute monster. It has a nice easy to play low action and I have finished it with a sound port and chrome hardware. I got a great deal on a great bass so I am selling it without a case on eBay for $399. Sold - Thanks Richard!
