    I received this guitar yesterday...I'm impressed with the intonation and playability out of the box. I'll end up taking a bit off the botom of the bridge to lower the action a touch, but it's not bad as-is. Tonally, it's a bright yet mellow acoustic dreadnaught with a plywood top. Decent projection...not a ton of bass, but still well balanced. The finish work is not bad, the binding is a bit gaudy, and I'd prefer chrome tuners to the gold. The only major finish issue with the guitar I received is the tuner/preamp section doesn't seat well on the upper bout--it's about 1/16" elevated in its center.The pickup sounds good for a low-end guitar, and has both 1/4" and XLR outputs. However, the XLR is unbalanced and wired wrong (pins 2&3 are shorted together). That said it's an easy fix if you're handy with a soldering iron--either put a transformer to balance it and rewire the xlr, or cut the pcb trace between pins 2&3, which will give you an unbalanced signal with pin 3 hot. If you only intend to use the 1/4", it's not a problem.The tuner is a standard guitar EADGBE only tuner (though the hang tag claims chromatic) and it works pretty well.Also included were a gig bag, a strap, a few picks, the truss rod allen key, a 9V battery, and surprisingly, a learn-to-play guitar CDrom from eMedia. Pretty cool.

    Can't beat it for the price

    By JCaffrey

    from Pennsylvania

    Comments about Washburn DK20CET Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I purchased the dk20cet over two years ago, and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I have not had any quality control issues that some of the other reviewers have had. It looks great, the tuners are good, and the on board tuner works well and is easy to use. This was my first acoustic guitar, and my experience with it has been great. My only complain is the lack of projection. I'll probably go without the cut-out for my next acoustic.

    Spend the extra dough

    By PSurls

    from Kansas City, MO

    Comments about Washburn DK20CET Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar because of its awesome inlays. Really a good looking guitar. After bring it home the Tuner worked, but would never give me an accurate reading especially on the low "E" string. When plugged in it is very unbalanced. you can slide the saddle pickup around and either get all highs or all lows but no happy medium. About a month after having it the bridge started seperating from the guitar and now after having it for about 6 months is barely hanging on and i'm already on the market for a new acoustic. I recommend not buying this guitar

    Good for the price, but sloppy fretwork

    By heiscreel

    from Creel, Mexico

    Comments about Washburn DK20CET Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar for someone else and was inpressed by the features given its low price. The electronics are pretty decent, but the onboard tuner is not the greatest (an external tuner would be easier to use). I had a hard time keeping it in tune out of the box, but a string change seemed to resolve the issue. The action was good out of the box. The only complaint I have is that the fretwork was really sloppy. The fret ends were sticking out past the fingerboard and very sharp. There was also a poorly seated 10th fret that caused a lot of buzzing. Fortunately I have done some guitar repair work before and I was able to dress and reaseat the offending frets. Still an extra nice looking and sounding entry-level guitar. Washburn should really do a better job of quality control, though, at their China factory as entry-level guitarists are usually not able to do their own fret repairs.

    Excellent buy

    By 3 Ring

    from Bowie, TX

    Comments about Washburn DK20CET Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Washburn thought this one out pretty well. Lots of pluses and very few minuses. It needed very little set up out of the box. The sound is typical of a dreadnought cutaway. Acoustically it's a bit thin and doesn't project too well, but plugged in... wow! Lots of usable adjustment on the preamp. The tuner is fairly accurate if you're patient between strings. The low z output is a brilliant addition, something one wouldn't normally expect on a guitar at this price point. On the minus side, fit and finish is a bit spotty. Nothing that would affect structural integrity, but there were some sloppy glue joints and finish blemishes on mine. Definitely a five footer as far as that goes. The pickguard, to me, just looks cheap and completely out of place on this guitar. The color isn't even close to any other trim on the guitar. Also, the "included gig bag" is a complete joke. More like a dust cover than anything else. It offers nearly no protection. Mine went straight to the dumpster. Definitely buy a case when you purchase this guitar. All in all though, the DK20CET compares very well to guitars way above it's price as far as sound and playability.

    Made in China

    By Don-aeJYG

    from Lincoln, NE

    Comments about Washburn DK20CET Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I was surprised by the outstanding appearance right out of the box. Beautiful, and then I tuned it with the onboard tuner, which is the main reason I wanted this guitar(traveler). The first thing wrong was the frets had not been filed correctly, causing scratches to my thumb and forefinger but not deep enough to bring blood, thank goodness! The neck looked warped but needed serious adjusting as all strings had serious vibration. I was really surprised that that it wasn't even close to being set up from the factory. I've played for over 40 years so fixing and setting up is something that's fairly easy for me. After filing the frets, replacing strings, treating the fret board with lemon oil and adjusting the neck--it now sounds quite well. As for a beginner quitar it's OK as long as you can get it set up correctly. Most highly commend the DK20CET. I must have gotten one made on a Friday!haha

    WOW!

    By VeryPleased

    from Topeka, KS

    Comments about Washburn DK20CET Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Wow. I recieved this guitar today as a present, and I couldn't be happier. The first thing I noticed was the inlay, which was incredible. The tuner is really accurate. I played for awhile with the factory strings, but upgraded to elixers. It sounds incredible now. Plugged in, it sounds great. The action is great, with no fret buzz. The finish is a little cloudy in places, but its not all that noticable and does not affect the sound.

    nice acoustic-electric

    By Anonymous

    Comments about Washburn DK20CET Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Wow, for the price this is a really great guitar, no probmlems but one, I was having some trouble with the 9th fret but other than that this is a really nice guitar and nice finish on the edges. I reccomend this to anyone, and the tuners really comes in handy also, and it sounds great its pretty wide which gives it a deepers sounds and very nice, so if you are wondering if you should get this, I would say yes!

    Best of both worlds

    By WeepingGuitar

    from Rockingham, NC

    Comments about Washburn DK20CET Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I just received my Washburn DK20CET guitar yesterday and have not put it down. First I tuned it with the built in tuner and checked it against my fender tuner. Right on. then I played it. Great accoustic sound. Better than a lot of high priced guitars I have played. I then plugged it into my amp. Great highs and good lows, any sound you wanted. Guitar is great to look at also. Quality of workmanship is as good as I have seen on any guitar. The finish, binding and inlay is flawless. Am I satisfied with my purchase from MF? Very. I am ordering a hardshell case for my DK20CET because I am not a big fan of gigbags. Personal preferance.
