Washburn's EA55G Koa Festival acoustic-electric guitar brings together exotic looks and versatility. Featuring a koa top and catalpa back and sides, the mini-jumbo cutaway body produces a focused yet resonant tone perfect for live performance or recording. The EA55G is equipped with premium electronics from Barcus Berry, including an onboard tuner and EQ controls, to provide plugged-in tone shaping options.

Exotic Koa Top Adds Visual Intrigue and Rich Tone

The EA55G's koa top gives it a distinctive appearance and contributes to the guitar's lush tone. When paired with catalpa back and sides, the koa top helps produce rich overtones and a clear, articulate sound. The smaller mini-jumbo body provides comfortable playability for musicians of all skill levels.

Premium Barcus Berry Electronics Offer Versatile Tone Control

Barcus Berry designed the EA55G's pickup and preamp system to give players maximum control over their plugged-in sound. An onboard tuner ensures accurate tuning, while bass, middle, treble and presence controls allow for precise EQ adjustments. The preamp's feedback resistance allows for higher stage volumes without issues.

Familiar Neck and Hardware Provide Solid Playability

The EA55G's mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard provide a familiar feel for most acoustic guitarists. Twenty frets offer versatility, while chrome Grover-style tuners provide accurate and stable tuning. White binding on the neck and body adds a touch of elegance.

Gloss Finish and Abalone Rosette Complete the Look

A buffed gloss finish protects the EA55G's exotic woods while enhancing their natural beauty. An abalone rosette surrounds the soundhole, adding a decorative touch.
