Famed golf club strikes a chord

Guitar model named after Augusta National
Friday, October 22, 2004
| Staff Writer

  Augusta's musical notoriety is now more than just being home to James Brown.
  Washburn Guitar company has named one of its models the "Augusta," after Augusta National Golf Club.
"It's a renowned place," said Kevin Lello, a Washburn spokesman. "We just wanted a name that kind of has that perception of being higher end."
When contacted, Augusta National had no comment on the guitar.
The dreadnought acoustic guitar is one of the Mundelein, Ill.-based company's higher-end models, with gold hardware, ebony tuners and a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $999.90.
"It's a wonderful guitar," said Jonathan Karow, the owner of Rock Bottom Music on Broad Street.
Mr. Karow said he saw the guitar in Washburn's catalog, which describes the guitar as being manufactured in the "Spirit of the South," and was intrigued by its name.
"I figured they weren't talking about Augusta, Maine," he said.
Mr. Karow inquired about the name and a Washburn representative told him, "We probably have a golfer in the house."
Mr. Karow ordered two, even though the model is significantly more expensive than most of the guitars he normally carries.
The acoustic guitar comes in three styles, and each has the name Augusta emblazoned across the neck.
The Augusta guitars are getting some buzz - customers assume he had the guitars custom made.
"It's nice they didn't put the Augusta name on a cheapie guitar," Mr. Karow said.

Widespread Panic was formed in 1982 when Washburn endorsee,
vocalist/guitarist John Bell and guitarist started playing together
in Athens, Georgia. Their loosely Southern rock meets jazz meets
the blues lent itself to extended improvisational flights. Their constant touring
schedule has won them a loyal grass roots following throughout the
nation. Capricorn Records signed them to a deal in 1990 and the band has
released seven strong records through the label.
John Bell plays a Washburn HB35 hollowbody electric and the NV100.

Jay Turser Guitars and Bass Guitars available at Rock Bottom Music Augusta GA and Aiken SC
Rock Bottom Music is proud to offer the full line of Jay Turser Musical Instruments at a Rock Bottom Price!

At Jay Turser, our belief is that good instruments help musicians develop their skills. We've worked hard to develop ours by designing guitars and basses with quality and value as our top priority.

Quality starts with intelligent design that supports sound and playability. Every aspect of our design process balances structural needs with the outcome in balance and feel. There's no point in having a great sounding guitar if it is too heavy to play on stage or awkward to maneuver between rhythm and lead.
