Bought the natural model. LOVE IT! beautiful wood, great nut and saddle. Replace cheap pins and strings and as good as any $500 guitar you can buy. I have owned many Martin, Fender. I love this one. I put silk and steel on this one. Great tonal qualities with this wood and bracing.
I got the dark colored guitar a month ago. Made in indonesia and kind of light, but if you put on some new strings this guitar is sounding real good. I have been playing mostly my les paul for the past thirty years and wanted a new acoutic. For the price this fits the bill, plus it comes with a heavy duty case. Fun to play and good sound.
I purchased the Washburn WD 114S in March 08. It seemed like a great deal - solid manufacturer, solid top, great looks and a free case to boot. When I received the guitar, first impressions made me believe that I had the deal anticipated. Then, I noticed that the bridge pins were not recessed into the bridge. Too big? Odd. Upon playing, a vibration emanated from the bridge area. An inner brace was loose and/or dampness worked its way into the spruce top. Upon further inspection through the soundhole, I found that the back was slightly cracked. Perhaps this new line of guitars is off of new production line and needs some time to work the bugs out. Perhaps the plant had a hard time controling humidity. Unfortunately, I had to return the guitar.
Couldn't resist, because it include a hardshell case! Figured it would be a piece of junk. Well I got, and it is beautiful. There are no cosmetic flaws. no sharp frets, no truss rod adjustments necessary, and plays with a nice tone, and with nice action. Nice straight neck. Has little accents like the Washborn logo on the heel. And unless I'm mistaken, has MOP inlay around the sound hole. Made in Indonesia. This must be a loss leader. Love it.
Three years later this guitar is as perfect as the day I bought it. Light as a feather with a nice feeling neck so that anyone used to playing electric will feel right at home. Classy abalone inlays on neck and soundhole. Real hard shell case. People scoff at the trembezi sides and back but the wood is beautiful and the tone is rich. Simply love this guitar.
This is a very pretty guitar. However, it arrived with very high action and pretty nasty strings. I loosened the truss rod, replaced the strings and sanded the saddle so I got the action to a very nice 0.085" below the 6th string at the 12th fret. The saddle is almost buried but there is a lot of meat left on the bridge. The tone is bright, but there is not enough volume for me. On closer inspection I found some small void in the bridge glue at the back right side, enough to slide in a bit of the corner of a piece of paper. But I think it's not separating and the tuning is holding well. The arch of the back is nice but the top is hilly under the bridge, and that is why the quality rating is low. Lifetime guarantee lets me sleep easier if problems occur in the future. So I'll enjoy this guitar because it was such a good deal and I don't really have to woory about it.
Bought a WD114S about April of 08 wanted an inexpensive guitar to keep where our Bluegrass Band practices. This one does the job well with EXP16 strings it has good volume and cuts through the mix. We used this one for several of the recordings on our new cd.
