The 1939 Washburn Solo DeLuxe Super Auditorium 5246 is the inspiration behind the all-solid Revival Series Solo DeLuxe. Period details such as the narrow "Crown" headstock, 1939 Vintage Sunburst, Ivoroid binding and rosette, fingerboard inlay, and period faux-tortoise pickguard combine to create a visually stunning acoustic guitar.
The Torrefaction process is applied to both soundboard and bracing to age these materials such that internal resins are crystallized and suspended water removed; much like what would naturally happen over the course of 20+ years of air drying. Mated with solid Indian rosewood back and sides and a bone nut and saddle the result is its Pre-war voice that will cause pause to anyone listening to this magnificent instrument. The Solo DeLuxe's 1-3/4" nut width and narrow C shaped neck optimize playing comfort. Graphtech Ratio-Tuned open-back tuners and Cleartone 7412B light gauge phosphor bronze strings complete this exquisite instrument. Deluxe Hardshell case included.

Great staff to assist you in your purchases and the support is excellent. I would recommend Hollowood Music as the first choice when looking for top quality music equipment and service at the best prices in Pittsburgh

These guys were so attentive, when I walked in the door I was greeted by the guys in there. Dan answered all my questions about drums, let me know they offer lessons and really told me all I need to know to get started. Love it! I look forward to working with them for all my instrumental needs!

These guys Rock! Have known them for a long long time ... they go the distance every time. ATT: DJ's and bands a lot of people don't know they rent equipment and get you out of last minute jams! Easy in and out- there's a ramp in the back for the big stuff. Hollywood is 15 minutes from wherever you are ... in the heart of McKees Rocks- look for the giant guitar on the building. They know their stuff ... their Pro Audio dept does the sound for a lot of the concerts and big shows that come to Pgh and surrounding area. AND ... they just got into the big piano business- (rental and sales ... I think) Tell Don or Gary "Spike sent cha!"

Legendary store. I have an acoustic guitar sitting at my side that I bought at Hollowood in 1987 when I was on leave from the Army. Their selection of Gretsch guitars now is awesome.

Hollowood has been my go-to shop for guitars and equipment for over 30 years. Many of my gear "firsts" we're sold to me by one of the brothers H. Even a few things from Big Jim.
Light to sound-- I've bought all kinds of stuff there. Whatever I've needed-- picks, strings, cables, pedals, mics, amps, speakers, guitars, lights, stands-- I check Hollowoods first. Great guys, great customer service, great gear, great shop, period!

I love Hollowood! Learned to play guitar upstairs when I was about 12 years old. Been going there ever since. Don is a great guy, and his team is always the best. One of Pittsburgh's great music traditions!

The Hollowood name has been an integral part of the Pittsburgh music scene for 50 years. I bought some of my first amps from Jim when his shop was in the basement of the family home. Highly recommended!

Great shop. Great employees. Took my takamine to get repaired as it cracked from the dry weather. Looks great and not to mention they've got a fantastic selection of Larrivee acoustics. I wish I had more time to sit down there and test them all out.
