    Comments about Washburn Festival EA15A Spruce Top With Flame Maple Veneer Acoustic Cutaway Electric Guitar With 4-Band EQ:

    I got this recently and I'm very impressed. I wanted a low budget beater acoustic with a cutaway. to use other than my Taylor. this guitar looks so great I almost don't want it ever to get scratched. it has a built in tuner, pickup and has 1/4 in input an XLR input. If interested I would encourage you to check the fret ends to make sure they are not sharp most of the other Washburn's I have seen at guitar center are dried out so the fret ends are sharp.

      Helped a friend pick this out as a gift, I'm not a pro, but have been playing for the past 20 years or so. I was impressed by the easy play-ability, full tone and weight. This is a really great guitar for your money. Nice hardware and electronics as well. I'm not a huge fan of the color burst, but hey lets be honest, color does nothing but give it looks... I'm seriously considering picking one of these up for myself.

        I bought this guitar and only had for less than 2 months and the bridge started pulling away. Two cracks near the bridge. Kept inside in a hard case. Never stayed in tune very good. Getting Washburn to take care of this problem is like pulling teeth. Very slow to respond and takes them several days in between emails. This guitar is a piece of junk. Never will buy another Washburn.

            I picked this guitar up a few days ago. I was looking to get an inexpensive acoustic-electric after not having played in 20 years following an injury. I was expecting a decent guitar, but what I got is truly outstanding. The guitar is beautiful, with no waves in the body. Playability is excellent, even with the stock strings(which aren't great). I haven't had the opportunity to get a proper set-up, but I can't wait to see what it will be like when I do. If you are looking for an inexpensive acoustic-electric, look no further than this guitar.

            Well worth the money

            By Mark Mathews

            from Oxford, PA

            Comments about Washburn Festival EA15A Spruce Top With Flame Maple Veneer Acoustic Cutaway Electric Guitar With 4-Band EQ:

            Overall quality of the guitar seems very good. Very tight, plays well out of the case but some might want to set it up to suit their own taste. Electronics are excellent and has an XLR plug as well as 1/4" jack for plug in, which I think is a great feature. Sounds great ran directly through the PA, though the high ends seem a bit strong but nothing a little engineering can't fix.The finish is really nice, though not what you might expect on a $1500-2000 guitar! Often people purchase these price point models expecting something grandiose. I think the guitar clearly has the quality, sound, electronics, and playability of a $500-600 guitar. Washburn is an excellent product and I like the fact that they have to offer you more to keep up with the more popular name brands. So this same price point with Washburn will often net a much nicer instrument with more features than other, more popular brands.

            Amazing Guitar

            By Jmike

            from Ashdown, Arkansas

            Comments about Washburn Festival EA15A Spruce Top With Flame Maple Veneer Acoustic Cutaway Electric Guitar With 4-Band EQ:

            The guitar has a really great tone and balance to it. Has great looks as well also. But once I got the guitar, it had several scratches and permanent paint damage on it. You couldn't tell from a distance, but up close I noticed scratches in places that I've never touched. But over all if you're looking for an acoustic guitar that sounds really textured and deep in tone, this is the best guitar for it. But I would check for any flaws first.

            Washburn EA15A

            By Matthew Fideler

            from South Dakota

            Comments about Washburn Festival EA15A Spruce Top With Flame Maple Veneer Acoustic Cutaway Electric Guitar With 4-Band EQ:

            Overall this guitar is fantastic! Perfect beginner sized guitar that I will enjoy for years to come!
            First and formost I would like to state that this guitar is exactly like shown in the picture above. As you can see in the above picture the body comes to a curved edge by the cutaway not a sharp one making it a venetian body style not a florenine like stated in the discription! Other then that, the onboard tuner is really cool with its LCD screen and tuning nobs (not sliders)! The light D'Addario strings sit close to the fret board making this a very easy to play guitar! All wood work is incredible and looks beautiful!!
            Only thing I see that could possibly be wrong is the white binding on the neck has some hairline cracks right under the fret bars but every guitar I have played has these! Outside of that, the quality of this guitar is awesome! There are no runs, left over glue, scratches or anything! The flame top looks amazing and is absolutely flawless! Very deep shine and the internals look pristine! Very, very good quality as you should expect from a Washburn guitar!
            Tough to beat the value of this guitar with the quality and beauty of this instrument!

            Not as promised

            By srk

            from Texas

            Comments about Washburn Festival EA15A Spruce Top With Flame Maple Veneer Acoustic Cutaway Electric Guitar With 4-Band EQ:

            This is advertised as a florintine in write-up and pictures. The one the shipped me was not a floritine but a rounded cut away. Not sure if this was a production change or what. In spite of quality issues, the sound is beautiful. It has a smaller body than I expected but it still projects nicely. I like the neck feel and the small body make it comfortable to play. If the quality was as good as my last Washburn I would give it a 10. I really like the guitar, but quality is way less than expected based on other Washburn product I have seen.
            Nice having the tuner built in. I like sliders for controls better than small knobs.
            Disappointed. Bought for my son. I would return it but he played it and says he wants to keep it. The pictures and writ-up say it is a Florintine cut away. It is not. Nice flame maple top. Resonable fret work. Varnish has some runs and imperfections. Sand marks in neck under the varnish, does not effect play or feel. Also some glue left at some joints and binding less than perfect. Not as well built as my 11 year old Washburn D10CEB was.
            Hard to beat the price but quality is not what I expected from Washburn.
