As one of the oldest stringed instrument manufacturers in the USA, Washburn has been at the forefront of American music making for over 130 years. Washburn guitars, mandolins and banjos have all contributed to the developing American musical landscape as well as providing personal enjoyment to millions around the world. Today, as it was in 1883, when the first Washburns were produced, the same pride in craftsmanship is evident in every instrument we build.
There is a Washburn available for every level of musicianship from beginner to pro, all with the same attention to detail and quality. Many of our instruments feature premium woods and hardware like Seymour Duncan® pickups, Fishman® tranducers & preamps, Grover® tuners and Tone Pros® hardware. Every instrument we build is backed with a full limited lifetime warranty, a reflection of our confidence to stand behind the quality of our products.
Washburn instruments can be heard in all styles of music every time you turn on your radio or watch TV. Whether it's Nuno Bettencourt playing with Rihanna, Paul Stanley with Kiss, Warren Haynes with The Allman Brothers Band & Gov’t Mule or any number of folk, jazz, classic rock, and metal icons from throughout our history.
We hope the great passion and pride that goes into building each of our instruments will spark your imagination, ignite your creativity and inspire you to create your music. Whether in your living room or on a stage in front of thousands, there is a Washburn waiting for you to call your own.
