This guitar is a work of art, the sound is crystal clear and like a hug around you when you play it. String placement and intonation are perfect.

washburn wcg25sce

Bought one several months ago, best acoustic I ever played. Then I saw the Taylor T5Z acoustic electric so I decided I would like one of those as I used to own a t5 standard and had a great moment with it but sold it as I thought it wasn't all I needed at the time. I returned the T5z because my fat little fingers didn't work out well on it at the nut area as its thinner than the T5 standard there and ended up buying a telecaster thinline and having to replace the acoustic electric. Don't know why I didn't go right back after the Washburn again, but I think it was that search for the holy grail. I bought a Taylor 114 ce and that didn't work out because I didn't agree with the neck profile, let that one go and then got a PRS Angelus Custom and that didn't work out because I realized that the Washburn had more dynamics and projection and a much better feel all around, let alone the comfort bout. And I also was a bit annoyed with the SE indicator emblazoned on the headstock of the PRS Angelus. They could have just left the PRS logo on it without letting everyone know who is watching you perform that it's a low end model. All that aside, this Washburn acoustic electric guitar is the best value on the market, in my opinion, as someone who may struggle a little to play acoustic guitar although I am a very seasoned bass player and can keep up my end on electric guitar rythym playing . Bottom line is I bought another one and I am very happy with it.
Music background: Many years of bass, some rythym work and some keyboards for a number of years

Fantastic Guitar

Fantastic acoustic guitar. I was looking at a Taylor 214 and a PRS SE Angelus and was suggested this by my sales engineer Patrick. Turns out he was spot on. This guitar has been nothing but awesome since I've had it. It has nice sparkling highs and a great punchy low end. It's great for strumming and has good articulation when picking. The added benefit is the cutaway where your arm sits. You don't think much about the sharp angle of a normal acoustic guitar but once you play this you will experience true comfort while playing an acoustic.

I looked at Taylors, Martins, Larivees and did research. I was very skeptical about buying this, but for the money I gave it a shot. It is gorgeous, the pictures do not do this guitar justice. It plays as good and sounds as good as the $2000.00 guitars I played at my local music store. The only negative thing I could find was that it did not come with a front strap button. The value of this guitar is almost unbelivable.

Beautiful guitar

Beautiful sounding guitar. I love the tone. The bevel strip of mahogany binding is very unique and attractive. I have only seen this feature on much more expensive custom guitars. You can't go wrong with this guitar
