Comments about Washburn WD55S Solid Sitka Spruce Top Acoustic Dreadnought Koa Guitar:
First, I am a bass player. I like low tones. I do enjoy playing acoustic guitar from time to time and have a cedar top guitar because it is less "bright" in its tone. I wanted a different sounding acoustic, so I went to find a spruce top acoustic. This is a great great buy for an acoustic guitar. Of course if you are a pro, Martin and Taylor come to mind, but Washburn makes a great guitar at a great price. This guitar, straight out of the box, plays wonderfully (did change out the strings). Spruce top and Koa wood, you aren't going to find these woods in a GOOD acoustic for this price. The guitar plays great and sounds great. And while, sound is what it is all about, it never hurts to play a beautiful instrument! You won't believe the look of this guitar. Absolutely fantastic. Plays smooth, sounds like a much more expensive acoustic and plays just as well. If you were looking to spend 800 or more on an acoustic, the WD 55s is worth a look and if you were looking to spend less, pay a little more for the quality this guitar provides.
First, strings need to be replaced, the standard strings sound a little tinny but good strings warm it right up. It plays great and is set up very nicely from the factory, I thought my first stop would be at the local guitar shop, but no, its got great playability right of the box! Refreshing for an acoustic guitar. The guitar is beautiful, great woods that you would find at higher price guitars. The inlays make the guitar! If you want a guitar that looks and plays great this is a solid guitar. Its built like a professional. It wants to be played and it wants to be played out.
Awesome looking and it has a great feel. The construction looks good and feels and plays like a great guitar. Put some good strings on it, the standard strings sound a little tinny but good strings bring out the voice of the guitar. Plus you can't beat the accents on the guitar. Looks great. Maybe a clear pick guard if you are a hard strummer.
You're paying good money for the guitar. Its made in China. That part held me back a little, but its got a great feel and sounds great. Plus, the woods look great. It has the sound, it has the playability. You're getting value for your money, if you are looking at spending some money on a solid, playable acoustic.
