Warren Haynes is known for his extremely tasty and heartfelt playing and is very particular about his tone. Washburn designed the WSD5240S acoustic guitar on the original Washburn Solo Deluxe from 1937, which is similar in size to the popular OM shaped guitar. Warren has been named to the the number 23 slot on Rolling Stone Magazine's top 100 guitarists of all time.
The WSD5240S Warren Haynes guitar features a solid Sitka Spruce top with period-correct vintage sunburst finish. Quarter sawn scalloped Sitka Spruce bracing joins the top and rosewood sides while the beautiful 2-piece back is split by a vintage-inspired 30s zipper-style inlaid herringbone stripe.
The top is framed-out beautifully by an ivoroid binding and the sound hole is expertly bound and finished by a gorgeous ringed herringbone rosette. The tortoise pickguard rounds out the vintage vibe while the fully-carved solid ebony bridge supports a compensated bone saddle for improved intonation, delicately nuanced tone and singing sustain.
