Washburn Ryman LE
The Washburn Custom Shop has taken some of the orignal 1892 oak pews from this historic building and produced 243 special guitars. The tops are of oak from the pews, the back and neck are mahogany. The fingerboard is inlaid with "1892" at the 12th fret, and the peghead has a circular inlay inspired by the carving on the pews. The serial number corresponds to the orignal row letter and seat number on the pew, with the row letter on a gold-plated disk on the back of the headstock and the seat number on the top rim of the top rim of the body. The guitar also has a passive Fishman transducer pickup.
This custom hardshell case is covered in tooled leather and includes a package of private label guitar strings, three guitar picks with "The Ryman" stamped in gold ink, a tooled leather strap, a copy of the Ryman history book Nashville's Mother Church, a certificate of authenticity and century-old nails removed from the orignal pews.
