Just recently a Washburn model C came into my shop for minor clean up and restring. It has a 13" scale and is in pretty good condition. What can you tell me about it?

I see on page 82 where it say around 1921 they changed the scale length from 13 3/4" to 13" and in 1925 they changed it from "Style C" to "Style 5282".
