Sweetwater is proud to now be a Washburn guitar dealer, and we were thrilled that they were able to come join us for GearFest ’13! From humble beginnings in Chicago, Illinois, that date all the way back to the 1880s, Washburn is a venerable American institution in musical instrument manufacturing. From guitars to mandolins, from banjos to ukuleles, and more, Washburn has long been a recognized and cherished brand among musicians. Many of the biggest names in folk, blues, jazz, country, and rock ’n’ roll have played Washburn’s well-crafted, high-quality instruments.
Washburn combines nearly a century and a half of experience utilizing quality construction with premium materials to deliver instruments that are ready to perform on any stage.
GearFest attendees had the opportunity to get their hands on a wide range of Washburn instruments and experience the quality firsthand. One of the reasons we’re so excited to be carrying Washburn is because of the huge value they manage to pack into their instruments. In fact, the acoustic guitars from the affordable Festival series were featured on MTV’s Unplugged series in the ’90s. Why? Because even if you don’t pay a fortune for a Washburn instrument, you still get quality that’s ready for serious use onstage or in the studio.
Washburn’s wide range of instruments is a perfect fit for Sweetwater’s customers, who are just as musically diverse as Washburn’s instruments themselves. From bluegrassers to indie rockers, or any style, Washburn has something to interest just about everybody.
We’re so pleased to welcome Washburn into the Sweetwater family of manufacturer partners. And we’re sure you’re going to be just as excited about this amazing line of instruments as we are. To find out more, visit Sweetwater.com or call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer.
