Amazing guitar

Purchased this guitar because of the small neck. I am only a beginner to the guitar and not wanting to invest alot of money at this stage, this guitar is amazing. I have small hands and for a classical guitar my fingers fit around it comfortably. Great sound and build quality. I am very pleased with this instrument and the service of Sweetwater.

Washburn EACT42S Florentine Classical

I really enjoy playing my Washburn Florentine Classical. It has great action and sounds great with the right amp. I've been playing for fifty years and with a rock and classical background I would gladly promote this guitar for a lot of different styles of music. It's a really good guitar with a great price.
Music background: Classical, rock, Spanish guitar

Nice guitar

Purchased the guitar with few expectations. Turned out to be a very nice guitar after some setup work. Changed the strings immediately, lowered the action at the saddle. Plays nicely. Sounds good using internal pickup.
Music background: Pro drummer; Student guitarist.
