A Songwriter's Dreadnought!

Washburn's WD160SWCE acoustic-electric guitar combines exceptional feel and stellar quality at a price any serious guitarist can afford. Made entirely from solid tonewoods, this dreadnought guitar delivers the rich resonance and lingering sustain that's well out of reach for economy models. There's nothing quite like the warm and focused voice of mahogany. From the first time you strum your WD160SWCE, you'll feel that soulful depth pulse through, mellowed out by the lyrical smoothness of a cedar top. Topped off with a Fishman Presys Blend pickup system and outfitted with choice appointments, you can't help but be impressed by the value Washburn packed into the WD160SWCE dreadnought.

Washburn WD160SWCE Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Cedar-topped mahogany provides a mellow, lyrical tone
  • Fishman Presys Blend electronics deliver exceptional sound and functionality
  • Timber Ridge series guitars make solid tonewood sound affordable
Cedar-topped mahogany provides a mellow, lyrical tone

Cedar-topped mahogany acoustic guitars, such as the Washburn WD160SWCE, have been a mainstay of singer/songwriters for decades. Mahogany is known throughout the guitar-playing world for its warm and dark sound with plenty of bass to fill out vocals. The WD160SWCE's cedar top complements that sound with its smooth mids and mellow yet lucid highs. This sound has the overall effect of giving your voice room to breath, without coming off too spartan.

Fishman Presys Blend electronics deliver exceptional sound and functionality

Far from a barebones electronics system, Washburn outfitted this WD160SWCE acoustic-electric guitar with a Fishman Presys Blend system, which combines one of their premium onboard preamps with an integrated Sonicore pickup. In addition to great tone, this system gives your WD160SWCE excellent tone-shaping options, including a 3-band EQ, a tunable notch filter that lets you remove problem frequencies, and a phase switch for feedback suppression. There's also a microphone mounted to the endpin, which you can mix with the pickup for a more rich and natural sound.

Timber Ridge series guitars make solid tonewood sound affordable

When Washburn developed their Timber Ridge series, they set out with the goal of bringing all-solid-tonewood acoustic guitars, such as the WD160SWCE, to budget-minded guitar players. Based on that, you might expect Timber Ridge guitars to be stripped-down and visually unappealing instruments, but you'd be surprised. Appointments and adornments abound on the WD160SWCE, including an elegant abalone rosette and mahogany binding, making this one incredibly good-looking guitar.

Washburn WD160SWCE Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • A wonderful-sounding and playing all-solid tonewood acoustic-electric dreadnought any serious guitarist can afford
  • Solid mahogany back and sides topped with solid cedar provide a mellow and lyrical quality that's perfect for accompaniment
