Picture is of older model, with abalone (sticker) inlay. Received with white inlay(clearly a sticker), makes guitar look washed out and cheap.

It's OK if you're a beginner...

Comments about Washburn Festival EA20 Spruce Top Acoustic Cutaway Electric Mini Jumbo Flame Maple Guitar with 4-Band EQ:

I have played guitar for 41 years, have built my own electric, and done some of my own neck and body adjustments. It would be fair to say I know my way around a guitar. I bought the Washburn EA-20 because I was looking for a less expensive back up for my Martin and an acoustic with the tone one gets from a maple body. I chose Washburn because I own and love a Washburn J-3. I ordered this in 10/2015 and when it arrived, it looked nice, had a flawless finish, and the sound I was seeking. The pre-amp was useful and the tuner was very accurate. All good so far. Upon playing it, it had some fret issues around the 12th and 13th fret on the high E string causing the string to play off pitch and buzz. Since it was under a lifetime warranty, I called Washburn to seek help with this problem. Good luck with that.

Washburn is owned by a music conglomerate and after several attempts I finally spoke to someone who told me to take it to the local Guitar Center. Their guitar guy had no clue and would not discuss repairs under warranty. Six months later, the pre-amp died. I am sure it is a bad wire somewhere, but again, it was under warranty (1 year) and I could not contact someone at Washburn for this issue.

Though the guitar still plays well, with the exception of the aforementioned problems, I would suggest you try another brand. Epi has an A/E in this style and it plays and sounds OK.

absolutely wonderful guitar

By rightfromtheart

from oklahoma city, ok

Comments about Washburn Festival EA20 Spruce Top Acoustic Cutaway Electric Mini Jumbo Flame Maple Guitar with 4-Band EQ:

I am sixty years of age now and have owned more guitars than I can remember, but this guitar is perfect for me.

It is almost as expressive to every nuance of style from harmonics, to soft hand muted picking, to high volume strumming of that of a banjo head.

It meets every single requirement for me as a musician, including looks! The blonde version I purchased reminded me so much of a George Benson GB10 I had back in the eighties, absolutely gorgeous fire maple backs and sides.

I just dropped by a local music store not even looking to buy, but after playing it for only 10 minutes, I walked it to the counter and bought it. I never even plugged it into an amp! ... but the on board electronics are no let down either! Fast and accurate pitch adjustable built in tuner, EQ, Notch, Volume, great sounding amplified as well.

I don't know if every single one of these guitars sounds and plays like mine, or if mine is just one of those rare combinations when the universe conspires and all the pieces fall into place to create and result in a perfect instrument, but all I do know is that I am in LOVE with this guitar!!

unplayable piece of very poor quality

By Charpie

Comments about Washburn Festival EA20 Spruce Top Acoustic Cutaway Electric Mini Jumbo Flame Maple Guitar with 4-Band EQ:

This guitar was not playable and was used and returned previously. Obviously no one at 123 Music ever examined it or tried to play it. What a waste of time and money, it cost me over one quarter of the purchasr price to return it. The first 2 frets on the neck were unplayable and rattled due to lack of sufficient clearance. Washburn guitars are well rated but NOT this one !

Not great quality, but decent guitar

By Rolan

from New Mexico

Pros

  • Decent electronics
  • Good Tone
  • Great looks

Cons

  • Not Setup Well
  • Poor craftsmanship
  • String Buzz

Best Uses

  • Backup guitar
  • Travel Guitar

Comments about Washburn Festival EA20 Spruce Top Acoustic Cutaway Electric Mini Jumbo Flame Maple Guitar with 4-Band EQ:

I ordered the EA20 from MF a few weeks ago. I received one that was damaged first, and it had very poor craftsmanship, excess glue on the seems, scuffs in the finish and a large spot where the finish had bubbled and completely flaked off, so I sent it back. I received another that was built better (better, not perfect) and started playing it immediately. There was some string buzz (not from neck bow which can be fixed with truss rod adjustment) but after some work, I got rid of it. It is a very nice looking guitar with some accents that make it pop (my head stock is not black, it is the same natural finish as the body) and the price isn't bad, but with the inconsistency of workmanship, you might get a good one, or you might get a lemon. Overall, I think you can get a better guitar for the price.

    Comments about Washburn Festival EA20 Spruce Top Acoustic Cutaway Electric Mini Jumbo Flame Maple Guitar with 4-Band EQ:

    This is an awsome guitar that looks and sounds great. The perfect guitar for the intermediate or entry level guitarist. Even an experienced guitar player like myself (47 years)wont find too much to complain about. What I like is the full sound from the smaller body size. You cannot go wrong with this guitar.
