Washburn R314K Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:
- Spruce topped trembesi provides a rich and mellow tonal palette
- Vintage Series guitars deliver period-correct vibe with modern performance
- Washburn has been producing quality fretted instruments since 1883
To give their R314K acoustic guitar an elegant look and a smooth tone, Washburn selected the combination of a back and sides made from trembesi (known in the U.S. as monkey pod or rain tree) and a top made of spruce. On the whole, trembesi has a warm and slightly dark tone that's reminiscent of mahogany or korina but looks much prettier. With a spruce top to balance out the sound, the R314K offers up a rich baritone timbre that makes it ideal for singer/songwriters.Vintage Series guitars deliver period-correct vibe with modern performance
