The B-Band system will give you the closest tone to a miked acoustic guitar you can get on stage. The jumbo maple body with solid spruce top sounds awesome unplugged as well.

Best Guitar For The Money


from Center Point, AL

See all my reviews

I have owned this Washburn for 5 years. It has stood the test of time. I bought it as a knock-around guitar that I take to church camp and other events where I didn't want to risk my Gibson. This is a very good guitar. The pick-up is great. The guitar is beautiful. The construction is excellent. One improvement that I made was to replace the saddle. This is needed to bring out the acoustic potential of this guitar. You put a bone saddle in this guitar and you can hardly tell the difference between it and a $3000 Gibson. Best guitar for the money!

I own many guitars but the one I ALWAYS pick up for acoustic is my Washburn! It just has the BEST BALANCED SOUND of any I own! It is able to play many styles of music with TONAL MAGIC! It accompanies my voice PERFECTLY and projects REAL ACOUSTIC SOUNDS PERFECTLY! The bass is FULL and the treble is SWEET without scream! The mid-range is PERFECT which TRULY GIVES THIS GUITAR A PERFECTLY BALANCED SOUND SPECTRUM! Very well made yet light as a feather! I have found a MATCH FOR ME AND MY FRIENDS! They NEVER want to give it back once they play it! When I tell them they don't make them anymore they want me to sell it to them! NOT! NEVER! OVER MY DEAD BODY!

By pjw4

from Melbourne Australia

I bought a guitar very similar to this one with the added difference of inlaid mother of pearl in a vine design up the length of the fretboard. Also, the top on mine is adirondack spruce, and is known as the J28SCEDL MVP, supposedly a limited edition of 200, commissioned by Oklahoma Vintage Guitars. It plays beautifully, looks superb and through a small amp the fishman pick up is amazing. I originally ordered a Martin D-1 and was infact sent this guitar by mistake, but in all honesty, after lowering the action by almost a millimetre all round and dressing the frets, the crisp trebles and fruity bass make this a guitar to die for. Given I paid only $699.00 for this guitar, it packs a lot of features for the expenditure, and will, as a limited edition, hold its value, or indeed increase over time. As a owner of several high-end guitars, including several Martins and Gibsons, this guitar compares very favourably to them. Good job!

Lot of Guitar for the Money!

By Doug C.

Ask me a question

I got my Washburn J28SCEDL last Friday. I love it! It has a wonderful tone, better action than my LP, it looks killer and sounds great plugged or un-plugged. When I pulled it out of the case to have a luthier lower the bridge and install a button on the neck-base for a strap, he said, "Wow! That is a lot of guitar for the money!"Do not spend a thousand more because of a brand name!! This will immediately become your favorite axe, and all of your buds will want to play it; if they can get you to put it down. Plus, it is made in the USA! Buy It! I'm a big guy and it is a Jumbo, so I had to get a longer strap.

Washburn J28SCEDL Cumberland

By Horus 13

from Mishawaka

I've been playing for about 15 yrs. I own 2 ovations and a PRS electric. I was looking for an acoustic electric with bigger projection and I sure found it. The craftsmanship is excellent and the tone matches. You could spend more money... but, you won't find a nicer guitar!

Excellent choice

By Nick-99nED

from Baxter Springs, KS

This guitar(Washburn J28SCEDL) was a christmas present, i couldnt be happier with it. The tone, balance, and clarity are excellent. I would definately recomend this guitar for the price. A veteran guitar player, impressed with its richness, offered to buy it for more than twice what i payed for it.

Beautiful Guitar

By Alexander Baron

from Provo, UT

I love this everything about this guitar. It doesn't have a built in tuner, and I wouldn't say that it is the best value, but it is a beautiful guitar. I especially love the balanced sound that comes from the strings. No one string is competing for volume over another. This guitar sounds great, and looks great.

You gotta' love this guitar!

By Red Watterson & A Good Excuse

from Houston

I always get complements on this guitar--from other acoustic musicians--beautiful sound--solid construction--great finish on the wood.Bought this guitar 3 years ago as an "upgrade" to an acoustic/electric I own--plugged them both into the same amp w/ same settings--big difference! The pick-ups on the Washburn do just what you want them to do--great presence, super 3 band EQ. I did have the phone-jack relocated to the bottom of the guitar--didn't like the guitar cord sticking out the end. I play acoustic several times a month--great gig guitar--has never failed me--neck is true--this guitar stays in tune. Don't need a built-in tuner--just clamp on a Chromatic Headstock Tuner (TG-200H) and you're set.

Love it

By McShow

This Guitar is Awsome..... Awesome. Buy one



By willieturnip

from isle of wight, UK

I've been playing guitar for about 10 years and gig regularly. I own a gibson electric, a fender electric and another washburn acoustic. It isn't the best guitar i have ever played, but for the price it certainly is! The tone is superb and the action is low and smooth.


Washburn Cumberland Acoustic Electric

By sloroy

from Va Beach, Va

Got this for a Christmas present. Fit and finish are quite good, as are electrics. The action is smooth, but I'm gonna put lighter strings on it for my taste. The transparent black finish is otherworldly! Tone is just what one would expect from a much higher end jumbo guitar. Bottom line, well worth the money. I can't wait til I can put it to work.


simply amazing

By Worship With Guitar

from Louisville, KY

See all my reviews

I bought this guitar with high expectations and it definitely met them. noticing there weren't any reviews written about this guitar I figured I should let buyers know that this guitar is amazing. The looks and the sound this guitar brings out is amazing. I love playing this guitar. This is my 5th guitar and the best one I've played without a doubt. I would highly recommend getting it set up professionally before playing it to get the best sounds possible.
