What makes this guitar special: A mojo-filled beauty with fantastic playability and a robust sound. This D12-20 is an absolute joy to play, with ultra-low comfortable action and a full-bodied resonance. A lightweight design makes it a joy to play for hours at a time, and as always, it has been professionally inspected and setup-ready to play as soon as it hits your doorstep.
Cosmetic condition: This one was definitely someone’s go-to, and showcases plenty of wear & tear consistent with age. There are various scratches, dents, dings, nicks, chips and scuffs present, with numerous areas of finish wear & checking throughout. The pickguard has been replaced, and the back of the guitar shows some unorthodox finish wear, possibly from resting on a strap for many years.
Body: Slope shouldered dreadnought with double bound mahogany back & sides, and solid Sitka Spruce top in natural finish. Multi-ring ivoroid rosette and purfling with beautifully variegated rosewood bridge and tortoise pickguard.
Weight: 4 lb, 7.2 oz
Neck: Wide, slightly rounded one-piece mahogany neck with aged white side dots and pearl dot inlays. 1 15/16” nut width, 24 3/4" nut width. Rosewood fingerboard is in awesome shape, and frets have a lot of life left. Slotted peghead with 6-on-a-side open gear tuners in perfect working condition. Neck is straight and plays beautifully up and down the length of the fingerboard.
Case: Unoriginal Washburn hard shell case included.
