This is a stunningly-beautiful guitar that is no longer made.  There are also not very many left in circulation.  If you like this; don't wait too long.  I don't believe there is any other guitar by any manufacturer that ever offered such a fabulous combination of Mother of Pearl, Turquoise, and Paua Abalone adornments; as does this one.

Mine is only 1 year old, and it is flawless.  I'm selling becasue I am quite large in stature, and I have been unable to get comfortable playing a parlor-size guitar.  As gorgeous as it is sitting in a stand - I really cannot afford to keep a guitar - that I have stopped playing. 

Please know that I immediately enhanced this guitar in 3 meaningful ways:  I added a transparent pickguard to protect the top;  I replaced the plastic bridge pins with solid brass pins containing Abalone inserts; and I added a gold strap button - which the factory did not provide.  Also please know that this (as all my others) guitar has never been touched by a zipper, button, watch band; etc.  It has been played only inside my humidity-controlled home, and never been subjected to smoke.  I am pricing this guitar commensurate with its beauty, rarity, condition, and enhancements.  I AM INCLUDING A FREE SOFT CASE FOR EXTRA PROTECTION - AND FREE SHIPPING WITHIN 48 STATES.  I am extremely meticulous about packing guitars, and have a perfect 5-Star rating.  I will send you pictures of the entire packing process so you know it was done properly.

A couple notes about the pictures:  first - I have just oiled the fretboard, and it is not completely dry.  Second - it is impossible to get enough light on the guitar without also getting reflections.  I promise there are no flaws!  I also photographed the guitar twice: once in mostly sunlight, and again in mostly artificial light.

Following is the description and specs as provided by Washburn:

The flagship offering in the Bella Tono series is the SC56S Allure; pulling out all the stops and ticking off all the boxes. This model features a solid Spruce top, gorgeous Acacia back & sides and cutaway body design for easy access to the upper frets. The soundboard is adorned w/ stunning abalone for both the rosette and purfling and is bound in maple. The ebony fingerboard continues w/ the lush appointments; depicting a beach island scene of a palm tree and birds in flight which are inlaid in exquisite abalone and turquoise. The Washburn Studio body design makes for an incredibly comfortable playing experience while managing to maintain the tight lows, focused mids and clear highs commonly associated w/ larger body sizes. The solid Spruce top helps define sonic nuances throughout the entire register of the instrument and showcases Washburn's Comfort Arm Rest. Its full 25.5" ³ scale length extends an undeniable familiarity to the player and the satin finished, modern "C" profile of the Mahogany neck is smooth and cozy feeling in the hands. For live performance or in the studio, it comes equipped w/ a Barcus Berry LX4 pickup system.
