A full-size Jazz box made of maple and spruce with elegant appointments.
Classic jazz guitar tone is traditionally achieved through hollowbody, semi-acoustic guitars. The J600 is a unique jazz guitar with a vintage and well-broken-in look. Classy use of ebony combined with distressed brass and antique vintage matte finish give this guitar a vibe all its own that harkens back to the days of smoke-filled jazz clubs. The J600 Jazz Electric Guitar is affordable and features a Venetian cutaway and bound f-holes. It has a beautiful flame maple body and spruce top. The scale is a comfortable 24-1/2" and the neck has a rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl block inlays. It has an adjustable ebony bridge, an ebony tailpiece and pickguard, and distressed brass Grover tuners. A single mini-humbucker delivers pure jazz tone with volume and tone controls of ebonite. Case included.

Comments about Washburn J600 Jazz Venetian Cutaway Electric Guitar:
This guitar is like my high school girlfriend...beautiful from 20 yards away and a little rough from up close. I love the vintage look of the complete package but the details (binding, finish, general craftsmanship) is lacking. With that said, this guitar is good where it counts...playability and tone.
The components of this guitar are very good. It has a Great tail piece, fantastic pickup, perfect tuning machines, nicely finished fretboard/frets and they all work well together. The tone is surprisingly good for a guitar in this price range. This scale length (24.5") is big but that's one of the reasons it sounds so good.
I have an average of three shows per week and I will not hesitate to bring this sweet monster out with me for my more jazz-oriented sets. It's sure to be a good source of post show conversation.
The case, incidentally, is very nice.
If you're looking for an entry level arch top guitar that stands out in looks and tone, this is it.
