looked like something you would by on the street south of the border. it appeared like raw wood with no finish, if you like raw wood I guess. glue was squeezing out of the joints smearing on the binding.cheap cardboard type case came with it. the cut out for the sloted head was still rough cut, didnt look like it was sanded. Did not look like the picture advertised. No way worth 600 dollars!!!

I could have marked the guitar down because of a few cosmetic blemishes but I gave it extra credit for its price, and I bought the guitar to play not to look at. So my five star rating is based on my price performance evaluation.

The tone is excellent and intonation perfect - I tested it at every fret with my strobotuner. Balanced tone although a little trebly which is to be expected given the body size. It has in fact more bass than I expected.

I do not care for the tuners but they work. It feels a little rough but I quickly got used to it. I would have preferred (hint to Washburn) that they had modelled it on their old model 1915 with its smaller body and shorter scale but it is what it is.

Well worth the price if you need or want a 12 fret to the body parlor style guitar although if you are used to 14+ frets to play with it takes some getting used to. You also have to understand that it has a fairly wide neck which also takes getting used to and demands different left hand playing techniques than those used on narrower necks.

So I went ahead and took a chance and ordered this guitar because the price had fluctuated from around four hundred fifty down to four-o-two. It looks like I received the correct model (vine inlay down the fretboard) but the finish is still what most people would call a flat or matte finish. It's not shiny or glossy at all . . . won't hold a suction cup from my guitar support, for example.

I thought the play was kind of outstanding, in that the action is the lowest I've ever seen out of the box and with good tone and volume for its size. This smaller body is super easy to hold and play. Consequently, I tend to pick it up often, and almost always before my full-size guitars.

The guitar isn't too pretty, other than the fretboard inlay. Definitely a bit rough looking compared to shiny, cosmetically perfect guitars with no blemishes. Mine came with a 1/8" yellow stain on the top and a 1/2" scratch as well. I believe that the label indicates that it's made in Indonesia.

Now, although the Washburn website describes it as being crafted of all solid woods, they are not top grade by any stretch of the imagination. The grain isn't very tight and there were clearly knots in the lumber used for the sides, so the surfaces are not perfectly smooth. With a similar guitar (the one with the vintage "beat up" finish), I could look through the soundhole at the point where the back meets the sides (perfling?) and see light shining in though the edging material. So the quality control may not be the best, but both of these guitars were low action, good sounding instruments with the ideal ergonomics for me: nice wide nut, somewhat short scale-length, and small body (I wouldn't take my full-sized guitars anywhere with this one around.) But having said all that, don't pay more than four Franklins for this one.

Have always had a fondness for "Parlor Guitars" so when I had the opportunity to purchase a brand new Washburn R 314 at a really good price I jumped at it. This was one of their 125th anniversary models.

When I received the instrument I was disappointed by a few things. They had put an "antiqued finish" on it, I guess to make it look old (kind of stupid in my opinion) the machines were crap (almost needed a pair of pliers to tune it) and there was one of the round fret board markers missing and one of flower shaped markers broken with part of it gone. The strings were so far above the frets that it was very difficult to play. Well I thought about it and even my D-18 had to have some adjustments. So I bought a set of Waverley machines from stew-mac, adjusted the strings down to a playable level and was reasonably pleased with the results. I replaced the bridge pins and the strap pin with genuine bone and it was getting better.

Then I contacted Washburn and asked to buy the missing fret board inlays so I could install them. Guess what? They said no! They said I could take it to one of their warranty centers and if they determined that it was covered under warranty that they would take care of it.

So I contacted Guitar Center (the afore mentioned warranty location) and they said they could not get me the parts either. They stated Washburn would only send them parts if it was a warranty claim. Well I have modified the instrument and apparently voided the warranty.

ALL I WANTED WAS TO BUY A COUPLE FRET MARKERS!

Needless to say I won't be adding anymore Washburn guitars to my collection and I would say buyer beware because customer service is something they are not familiar with!

apparently I can't give a rating less than one like a minus 1

This is a very rounded guitar sound wise, having the traditional 24.9" playing length of the heritage guitars between 1890 and 1930, this guitar can acoustically hold its own. Whether you play finger-style, flat pick or play the only 14 chords you know, to carry your voice, this guitar will do the job and with comfort. Not often used since the 1950's when Dreadnaughts came to dominate the Nashville circuit, Parlor guitars fell into the catagory of "somewhere in the back of the closet." As these guitars came back into the air of day, a new appreciation for their sound, size, realized value and function has been gaining notice. Some of those old closet finds, unknown to most, have values that exceed $10,000.00's. No wonder Washburn is not mistaken when it decided to remake their Parlor line of guitars.

The acoustic signiture of this guitar finds a clarity of range and volume due to the solid wood used, the vintage design of the soundboard, the string length and the wider V-shaped neck. The shorter 12 Frets to the sound board make for a comfortable stance, when playing for long times standing up, which is a little easier on the shoulder & back muscles.

Appearence wise this guitar holds a satan finish. I did notice it had the ability to polish out a bit and clean up very nicely. The workmanship on this guitar, its fit and finish was equally impressive for the cost. Keep in mind the guitar is sold as a vintage relic style guitar with many ageing nuances added. The only changes I will likely do to make the guitar a treasured keeper is add a suitable pickup, bone both ends of the scale and replace the tuners with a better wearing vintage gold set.

I am a musician (loosely & humbly speaking) and play for audiences up to a few hundred people.
