The folk-body version of Washburn's popular D10S acoustic.
Built to the same standards of Washburn's best-selling D10S (515152 - see customer products box on this page), the F10S has all the same great features and tone with a more comfortable, folk-style body. The solid spruce top provides remarkable response and projection that will only get better with age. Also features a mahogany back, sides, and neck; rosewood fretboard and bridge; and a truss rod for neck adjustments. Aesthetic enhancements include multi-lam top binding, neck binding, diamond inlaid marquetry rosette, dot fretboard inlays, chrome die-cast tuners, and a buffed gloss finish.

I was surpised how well the guitar was constructed. Joints were clean, crisp and flush, neck straight, no globs of glue inside or out. Finish even and no blemishes. Frets dressed properly, and on mine no buzzing anywhere. All notes sounded in tune on every fret, and I played every one before I bought it. Intonation was dead on. Action is set low the way I like it so it doesn't take a ton of finger pressure to barre. Neck/fretboard is straight, slender and quick. Tone, well, it sounds like the other two Washburns I have.. Warm and clean for the lows, bright but not tinny for the highs. Very, very hard to beat this guitar for the price.
These are fine little folk-size guitars for the money. My F10S came equipped with genuine Grover tuners (great!) and, after a little set-up work, plays like a dream. I play mostly fingerstyle, which was why I bought this OOO-sized gem, and it's just right for me. The neck width at the nut is just a hair under 1 3/4", perfect for Atkins/Travis stuff. The finish is outstanding for this price range, and the solid spruce top is icing on the cake! This thing sounds very good (not great) but it's not a OOO-28 Martin or 514 Taylor. For the dough spent, though, it can't be beat, i.m.h.o. I put an active undersaddle pickup, brass bridge pins, and a pickguard (helps the looks a lot) on mine-now I wouldn't part with it for triple the price! Buy one, see for yourself.
If you don't want to spend a whole lot on a nice guitar I recomend this, for the price it's a nice buy, I have played my friend's many times, nice action, beginners will love it, as with everyone, not to big on the low's but it's a thin body, comfortable to hold, nice thin board', although the strings do tend to rattle a bit if you play some agressive strum past the 7th fret, it looked as if the neck was not so straight, but thats an easy fix, overall get it, you'll be very pleased when you play it and then think about how much you paid for it
I was looking for an affordable round body style guitar that was similar to the Delta Blues guitars from the turn of the century, like the Gibson L00. This instrument has satisfied me in every way. It is solidly built, but feels light. It has an almost flat fret board that is great for finger picking. It has that round body sound that is balanced on all six strings. It has at least eight beats of sustain, and real overtones. It does have a 25.5 " scale, which is fine. It also has a smaller body than a dreadnaught and is far more handy for ease of picking up and playing. I put on a set of Elixer lights, and it really sings now.The shipping box has cheesey graphics, but I forgive them. The finish on mine was supposed to be satin, but it is gloss. These are the only negatives I have about this gem. I think this guitar is an exceptional value, if you want to play and not impress people with brand.
As a result of new strings I am compelled to change my rating and review of this guitar. As I said earlier the low E string on this guitar sounded dead. While changing the strings I found bits of wood debris in the bridge pin hole for that string, preventing the ball end of string from making solid contact with bridge. After removing debris sounds much better! Easy fix, suggest you check the bridge pin holes. This is a very nice traval guitar with a lota projection for a small body guitar (similar in size to a Martin 00 body). Great value!
