This guitar is a home run

This is a great playing and sounding guitar. The solid rosewood back and sides is what made me purchase it. The guitar is all solid wood. The guitar itself plays easy and the action was real nice out of the box. It sounds great plugged in, I changed the strings and oiled the fret board when I got the guitar. I used Elixir 11182 Nanoweb 80/20 Bronze HD Light Acoustic Guitar Strings. The guitar really came alive with the new strings. I have owned it for a bout a year now. There have no issues except for a finish crack in the head stock. You can barley see it and it is defiantly in the finish and not the wood. Overall this guitar has a high end feel and sound and I would buy it again or another in the series.

Washburn WCG25SCE - Natural

This guitar is absolutely perfect. I went into a music store ready to buy either a Martin or Taylor but none of them looked or sounded this good. The comfort factor was huge plus since I play live a lot. I was stunned at the low price and still can't believe they let them go so low. Do not hesitate if you are looking at these. Mine required no set up, perfect right out of the box!

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
