From the crisp balance of its beautifully aged and ambered solid spruce top to the resonant warmth of its lightweight, solid mahogany back and sides, this remarkably well-preserved Circa 1900 Lyon & Healy/Washburn Solid Spruce/Mahogany Parlor Acoustic is every bit the testament to the magic of aged tonewoods. Saturated and compressed mids, airy highs, and sustained lows make this an inspired fingerstyle instrument (its spacious 1 7/8" nut doesn't hurt either), while just the gentlest strum can set this vintage parlor off in a studio session. From its soft "V" neck profile to low, even action across a familiar rosewood fingerboard, there are some serious songs left in this acoustic.
This Circa 1900 Lyon & Healy/Washburn Solid Spruce/Mahogany Parlor Acoustic is in Excellent condition, part of a single-owner, climate controlled collection, with extremely light wear (pictured) consistent with age and occasional home use. Rear center seam separation professionally repaired and stabilized at some point in this instrument's life. From the low, even action of this instrument, neck has likely been professionally reset at some point as well. Includes Taylor padded gig bag.
