Very great guitar, and a nice rich sound. It has everything you need it for, recording,practicing, etc. One downside is that it has no back strap button, but honestly you don't need a strap if your just playing for fun. And for the price it is by far the best guitar... I tried a 1000 dollar Taylor but there was just something about this guitar.

First off let me start by saying this is a beautiful guitar. I recently decided I wanted to learn to play the guitar. Having 2 early 70's vintage Yairi Alvarez guitars at home that were my fathers I don't play them at all. I bought this guitar to learn. I don't have th "ear" for music or tones, but after plinking around with this model, I have noticed that the "G" string sounds flat. By this I mean the string hits the right frequency to be in tune, but it has no sustain and doesn't "ring out" like the others and this worsens as you make your way down the neck to the higher notes. I was told by a guitar tech that it is unrepairable and that is the way this particular guitar is going to play. I have changed strings, brands of strings, composite of strings as well as size to no avail. My advice is to pick the guitar up and really listen to the way the strings sustain individually up and down the fretboard before buying.

Comments about Washburn WA90CE Dreadnought Acoustic Electric Guitar:

This inexpensive guitar looks and sounds great. It has many features usually found on more pricy instruments, like a bound neck, built-in tuner, etc. The sound is bright and clear as a bell, I just wish someone at Washburn knew that people like to play standing up. It needs another strap button!

    Comments about Washburn WA90CE Dreadnought Acoustic Electric Guitar:

    I ordered the guitar on line from Guitar Center.com and had it delivered at my local GC store instead of my home. This being my very first guitar, I wanted to have it opened at the store and checked out by one of the professionals there. After it was opened we plugged it in to an amp. I was floored by the rich sound it produced when I struck my first chord. The D'Addorio strings ring out nicely on it. My brother in law who is an experienced player was very impressed with how it sounded and felt when he played it. I don't have a lot of money to spend on a guitar. But for all it features, along with great looks and reliable Washburn quality, I'm happy with this investment.

    Cons

    • Only one strap attachment
    • Pre-amp wires not tucked away

    Best Uses

      Comments about Washburn WA90CE Dreadnought Acoustic Electric Guitar:

      I was shopping for a good, low-priced guitar that had a pre-amp. The Washburn WA90CE: 1) has a full sound; 2) played easily; 3) had every chord sound in-tune; 4) did not require re-tuning when using a capo; 5) had a good, quality feel; 6) sounded really well when amplified; 7) had a nice finish

      The cons were: 1) there is only one strap attachment; 2)the two wires for the pre-amp are not tucked away and can be seen through the sound hole.

      Overall, I was, and am, really impressed with the WA90CE. So, I bought one!

      I know my son will be as pleased as I am with it. Try it!
