A Parlor-sized Resonator

Big resonator sound in a small body, that's what Washburn's R360K Resonator Parlor offers in a great-sounding package. This small and comfortable instrument gives you the bright and vibrant sound you want plus plenty of projection, without being cumbersome in the least. The R360K gets its unique voice from the combination of a spruce top with a trembesi back and sides with a resonator cone. Top it off with a full set of Vintage Series hardware, and you just can't knock the sound, feel, or vibe of Washburn's R360K resonator parlor acoustic guitar.

Washburn R360K Roundneck Parlor Resonator Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:
  • Spruce topped trembesi provides timeless acoustic guitar tone
  • Vintage Series guitars deliver period-correct vibe with modern performance
  • Washburn has been producing quality fretted instruments since 1883
Spruce topped trembesi provides timeless acoustic guitar tone

To give their R360K resonator parlor 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. The R360K's solid spruce top balances that sound even better, giving you a full-range tone that can be both commanding and an ideal accompaniment for a wide range of vocal styles. The biscuit resonator gives the R360K an extra-loud voice with a slight twang. If you're looking for a great new guitar sound to layer in your recordings, Sweetwater highly recommends a resonator guitar.

Vintage Series guitars deliver period-correct vibe with modern performance

When a company like Washburn (that's been making instruments for over 130 years) decides to make a vintage-style guitar, you can be sure they know what they're doing. Like the rest of the Vintage Series, this R360K closely resembles one of the handcrafted guitars of the late nineteenth or early twentieth century, one that's been well loved and never abused. It' apparent in the R360K's vintage finish and artfully distressed hardware. But, like all Washburn guitars, this instrument has been made using top-of-the-line modern techniques, offering sound and performance that's better than ever.

Washburn has been producing quality fretted instruments since 1883

With humble beginnings in Chicago that date back to the 1880s, Washburn is an American institution in musical instrument manufacturing. From guitars to mandolins, banjos, ukuleles, and more, Washburn has long been a recognized and cherished brand among musicians. Many of the biggest names in folk, blues, and rock 'n' roll have played these well-crafted, quality instruments. Washburn combines quality construction with premium materials to deliver instruments, such as the R360K, that are ready to perform on any stage.

I love it!

I am very pleased with this little guitar. I love the tone- sounds very tin-y and almost banjo-like. Sounds great with open tunings. The inlays on the fretboard are very cool and the F-holes and the cutout pattern on the cover plate are pretty unique. It is surprisingly loud for such a relatively small guitar. I was really impressed that the guitar came with a nice hardshell case and came stock with Di'addario strings. Pretty nice value

Nice Guitar

I purchased this guitar about 3 months ago. I played all the guitars in this price range and this one to me sounded the best. Plus, I liked the size, I'm not a small guy but this is very comfortable and easy to sit anywhere and play. I agree with all the comments of the other review. This thing looks really cool. The tuners are a little sketchy but there is a two year Sweetwater warranty so what the heck, All that said, this is a little 'small' sounding out of the box. The Sweetwater tech suggested I replace the cone. So, I had the cone replaced and a pro set up and WOW! This thing sounds remarkable. I would put this up against resos that cost much more than this guitar!

Love it

First I love the look. I've never owned a resonator. I'm a luthier so I've seen plenty of them. Weight was a huge factor for me. This little guy is a very comfortable weight, even for standing. The workmanship is fine. They call it "antiqued" so they have some leeway... But no issues, really.The neck is a joy! The action is perfect, very low. I like the fact the cover over the bridge is removable, for access to adjusting the saddle. That's the biggest hassle on working on resos', breaking the down just to set the saddle height, a real pain..... The sound: it's louder than my Larrivee parlor. Has plenty of lows and mids, but lacking in highs, so a slide is best for bringing out the highs. The machine heads are very stiff. They look cool but feel like they will break. The machine heads is why I didn't give this rating a perfect score. I really think this reso is great, and would buy it again if lost. Oh, the case, a bit clunky, and silly in style, but works great and will protect the instr,no problem.
