excellent guitar

By Benjamin Hinkeldey

from Hollywood, CA

Back in the days, when I started playing, this wouldn't have been possible. Buy an acoustic guitar for less than a few hundred dollars and you'll just regret having spent so much money on fuel wood. That, by the way, is less than 20 years ago. Today you can buy a guitar like the Washburn WD 5SB. You'll get a solid top guitar with great looks, appreciable sounds, good handling and intonation, practical tuners, and also neck dimension that are probably suitable for 90% of all players. What more can you ask for? Right, there's one thing: all that should still be affordable. Well, buddy, just look at the price tag...


nice guitar

By joe-Lwyws

from moses lake WA

has awsome action for an acoustic and has that sweet solid spruce top tone best guitar in its price range



By WB1

from Ohio

This guitar is the best acoustic guitar i have EVER played! I've been playing for eighteen years now. The neck is the perfect size, it feels like an electric! So, so comfortable. Washburn has my business for life. The action is super low, too. It's a dream. Please buy it!

I am just starting to learn to play the guitar. I bought this guitar because of its price,and suprisingly, it has great sound for one so cheap. I recomend this guitar to anyone who is just starting to play.
