All-mahogany Acoustic-electric at an Affordable Price

The Washburn Woodline WLO12SE 6-string Orchestra acoustic-electric guitar is a great instrument for players who need a guitar that looks, sounds, and plays great at an affordable price. The mahogany top, back, and sides deliver a warm tone that perfectly complements the human voice. The Sitka spruce bracing has been reduced to allow the WLO12SE's top to vibrate more freely. And the guitar is decked out in high-end ornamentation like rosewood binding and a NuBone string nut and saddle. The Washburn WLO12SE is a quality acoustic guitar for a great price.

Washburn Woodline WLO12SE Orchestra 6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • All-mahogany construction
  • Improved spruce bracing
  • Custom details
All-mahogany construction

The all mahogany construction of the WLO12SE has been a popular option for acoustic guitars since the instruments were first introduced. The mahogany top allows you to achieve a full and round tone that, because of its lower overtones, allows your voice to sit nicely on top of the mix. And the mahogany back and sides impart a midrange-focused, warm tone that's ideal for strumming. This coupling of woods is a favorite of singer/songwriters and continues to be a favorite among Sweetwater guitarists.

Improved spruce bracing

The bracing inside of the WLO12SE has been greatly reduced in mass. This minimizes the rigidity of the mahogany top, and it allows the top to vibrate much more freely. These vibrations add a bigger, bolder, and more balanced tone to your Woodline WLO12SE acoustic-electric. And the bracing is made from scalloped solid Sitka spruce. The pairing of the mahogany top and spruce bracing works to ensure the darker tone of the guitar has plenty of clarity to cut through.

Custom details

Not only is the tone of your WLO12SE richer because of the scalloped Sitka spruce bracing, but the onboard Fishman Isys+ pickup system translates those tones to the live environment. Features like real rosewood binding and the use of NuBone for the string nut and bridge saddle are high-end touches not generally found on instruments in this price range. And a dual-action truss rod is installed for more precise and stable neck adjustments.

Wonderful Washburn Woodline

Don't know how Washburn can produce the WLO12SE at this price. I had an all mahogany Martin that sells for like over a grand more and I actually prefer the Washburn. I hate to even say this less they raise the price - lol Anyway, as with a lot of new guitars, the strings were not up to par and I replaced them with the new Ernie Ball Aluminum Bronze 11-52's which I recently discovered ~ awesome strings. Fit and finish are as perfect as can be. I mean if you look close enough on any guitar you will find something... after all they are made by humans ya know, but you would be hard pressed to find anything on the Woodline I have. Action was right on for me. Intonation up fretboard was excellent. Tone is moderately warmer and with these strings sustain is excellent with beautiful tone. Great for fingerstyle. I personally really like the wood inlay soundhole treatment and overall looks. I have to agree with another reviewer and say save your money and buy this Washburn Woodline Wonder.

WLO12SE - No Brainer!

I have owned a fair few guitars in my time of what the industry calls top of the line. Taylor 914ce, Taylor Baritone 8 String, I have played countless other standards of the Industry Gibson, Guilds, Martins, etc. This is my 2nd Washburn. The other is a WG16S (mahogany back/cedar top) I would also rate that guitar a 4.5. The sound of the WLO12SE acoustically is everything you want from Mahogany, and nothing you don't! The neck is great! And it plays super easy. My small complaints are this.. no 2nd strap nut! Washburn..just put the 2nd strap nut on the guitar where Taylor does and be done with it. .. and my second complaint is the rosette which looks pretty cheap. The WG16S in comparison (for the same price) also lacked the strap nut..but the looks of the guitar were stunning.Unless you are buying top of the line Martins or other top Mahogany guitars. Skip the middle and just buy this.. save a lot of money and get the sound of a $1500.00 for less than $400. I'd like to give a total of 5 stars to Sweetwaters! Who were fast, communicative, and the guitar arrived in perfect order.
