In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, parlor (otherwise known as New Yorker and 0) was among the most popular steel-string body shapes. Today, parlors are still popular, mostly among country and blues musicians and range from beginner to boutique class.
R360K is one of six members of Washburn`s Parlor series. It costs $599 (second most expensive model in the lineup) and offers a non-cutaway parlor body, 24-3/4" scale, Biscuit type resonator cone, distressed hardware, and vintage styling. Main construction features include trembesi back & sides (solid), solid spruce top (white binding, metal resonator), V-shaped mahogany neck, and 18-fret rosewood fingerboard (1.89" nut, Fancy 1890`s style inlays).
Other notable features include a rosewood bridge, quarter-sawn spruce bracing, and open-gear tuners.

For my purposes this is the perfect guitar. I'm a fingerpicker and I don't play slide. I replaced the stock strings with 12/54's and it rings like a bell. Tone is beautiful and balanced and its dimensions are comfortable unlike so many cumbersome acoustics. I've seen concern expressed about the tailpiece being understrung. This is due to the tailpiece being difficult to hold the string end in place whilst restringing. I broke the point off of a bamboo skewer and gently wedged the string into the slot to anchor it in order to deal with the post/nut end of the string. This guitar is a work of art and I haven't played another since the day I got it. Not for everyone but perfect for me. Definitely worth a test drive if you see one in the store.
