great service price everything

great value

As with all product ratings I am writing this with a practacally new guitar, but out of the box, it is a very nice product. It has a flawless finish, with attractive grain, is well intonated, with a low, buzz free action. The tuning machines are smooth, and a month in to ownership, I don't see any warping of the top wood.The edges appear to be painted, which makes it a stronger product in my opinion. The top isn't the most resonant wood, but sounds great for a hundred dollar guitar.

Love my new guitar!

I got a great price on a great guitar and all I had to do is go on line, ordered it and got it the next day. Washburn makes an affordable guitar with great quality that was perfect for me. I have another Washburn for folk guitar performances but wanted a classical guitar for personal playing and this fit the bill. The customer service was outstanding. I received my guitar in perfect condition and the information, packing was perfect with a candy included, a nice personal touch. I felt very much appreciated as a customer and passed on my catalogue to my son who plays guitar and owns a lot of musical equipment and he was amazed at the offers. All I can say about Sweetwater is kudos to an unbelievable company.
