The acoustic-electric with an effects processor.
The Washburn D140MCIQ Acoustic-Electric Guitar may just blow your mind. At the heart of the D140MCIQ acoustic-electric is the DigiQ-10 electronics system with a piezo pickup. Not only is it a preamp and chromatic tuner, it's also a full signal processor. The 16-bit effects processor with digital 3-band EQ and reverb includes 4 sets of separate effects: delay, chorus, flange and tremolo. Another feature on Washburn DigiQ-10 equipped guitars is the user memory. There are 9 different settings for user performance.
The Washburn D140MCIQ has a dreadnought body design, and features a mahogany top, neck, and body for balanced warm tone right out of the box. The rosewood bridge and fretboard bring out a powerful sustain, while dovetail neck joint, tortoise binding, chrome hardware, and die-cast tuners keep this Washburn guitar in tune and looking sharp.
The Washburn D140MCIQ Acoustic Electric Guitar's electronic effects system is a great asset to an already great guitar.

This is an amazing guitar! The instrument itself is well-built (in Indonesia), all mahogany with a rosewood board and tortise shell binding on the top, back, neck (not in the description, but it's there), and the strip up the back. Even, glossy finish on the body, very playable semi-glossy finish on the neck. GREAT tuners. The acoustic sound is good to very good, but that is not why one would buy this guitar. The action was a little high, but a few adjustments to the truss rod and a few hours for the adjustments to settle-in and the neck was dead straight, with the action nearly perfect (keep in mind that I am an electric player, and this guitar is fine without going to the luthier). The electronics are amazing! Go the the Washburn site, and play the video for this guitar. Independant reverb, with chorus, tremelo, flanger, or delay. 9 programable storage locations for your presets. A built-in tuner that is better than most hand-held ones. No upper-bout strap button (it's OK to add one into the neck heel), and a real strap button in the lower bout, so you can add strap locks. A real 1/4" jack, not the strap button type. Illuminated LCD readout for the effects and tuner (large enough to see w/o difficulty). Battery box and 1/4" jack located below the lower bout strap button. Four variations of each effect; reverb is continously variable. Mute switch. Phase switch to help eliminate feedback (it's amuzing that the product demonstrator on the video doesn't know what the phase switch is used for). VERY quite, excellent sounding effects. This guitar would be very good for recording, but it would be great on stage. This is an excellent balance between price-point, quality, and performance. You don't feel like you're playing an inexpensive guitar with effects that try to hide the guitar's price. The whole package works!
Unfortunately, I just added a Godin 5th ave kingpin to my arsenal and to justify another purchase had to put this Washburn on the chopping block. Fortunately my stepson wants it (He also has my F11) I'd rather keep this guitar in the family. One downside to this guitar, though is that it takes 6 AA batteries. They last a good long time, but 1 9V would have been a better design.
This is a cool washburn. The digital effects are great for those subtle variations a a solo gig. My bass player says it's cheesy, but who cares. It's a roadworthy player, used it for some grueling 3 hr. + gigs. stays in tune and can take a beating.
Well built, nice neck and tuners. Though I hate buying anything made in china. This guitar is a sweet deal, of course you can't find it now, similar to the washburn's F11 folk guitar, also made in china but another great player.
Well worth the price
This is a great sounding guitar that is too easy to fret.. IT sounds great with or without the an amp. You get to have two effects at once, Reverb plus one of the following (delay, chorus, flanger, tremolo) or just one, or nothing but the EQ. You can dial in a perfect setting and then store it in 1 of 9 locations. Theres a mute button, large LCD screen to see all parameters, or for tuning. Very user friendly. Uses 6 AA batteries that lasts up to 30 hours. I dialed in the same sound for many different studio recorded songs. The price is perfect. SO send a few more buck$ and get a hard shell case to protect this beauty.... I love this one more than my ovation acoustic/electric. Just plug into a PA sys and you are ready to entertain....I recommend it to anyone that is doing acoustic shows.. I can plug up a set of headphones to this puppy and play late at night without waking up the dead.... Love it....
