WASHBURN PREWAR INSTRUMENT STYLES - GUITARS, MANDOLINS, BANJOS AND UKULELES 1883-1940

..to our complete listing of Books - Instrument History

WASHBURN PREWAR INSTRUMENT STYLES - GUITARS, MANDOLINS, BANJOS AND UKULELES 1883-1940 by Hubert Pleijsier
Presents for the first time a complete overview of all Washburn fretted instruments made before 1940. Detailed descriptions and pictures of more than 450 guitar, mandolin, banjo and ukulele models are provided, along with a brief history of the early years of original manufacturer Lyon & Healy. Combined with a list of all serial numbering schemes used between the 1880s and 1940, this information will allow any Washburn owner, collector or dealer to identify and date their instruments. Hundreds of pictures and catalogue reprints reveal details and historical data never published before. A gorgeous 32-page color photo section (with a number of photos - and the cover photo too - from the Elderly archive by our own Dave Matchette) features rare models like the lyre terz guitar, Style A mandolin, top of the line banjos and ukuleles, and more. 272 pp.
