Overall Rating:
When shopping for this, I almost bought a Larrivee OM-3 for $1100 cdn - I loved it and almost bought it - however, it wasn't twice as good as the Washburn (I thought the Washburn came close enough). Thus far, I would buy this guitar again, but probably not at $995 (I would buy the Larrivee). Bottom Line - I lucked into a great deal and am having plenty of fun with the Washburn. No regrets. I'm giving ratings of 4 because only an out of body experience rates a 5.
Model Year: 2000
Price: $450.00 cdn (new)
Where Obtained: MusicCity (Newfoundland)
Features:
Made in China with 21 frets (very accessible via cutaway). Equis plus (undersaddle) has notch filter for feedback plus presence, mid, bass, treble and volume, along with a EQ on/off. Tuners are Grovers. Ordinary list was $995 cdn but I got a discount due to some damage incurred via shipping from supplier to shop (which was repaired by shop and in any event did not affect any functionality).
Playability:
Very good action, excellent feel to the neck - relatively thin, yet quite "beefy". Quite conducive to comfortable playing. As comfortable as anything I've testdriven.
Sound Quality:
I play through a POD (tube preamp setting with little/no effects)and it sings. Very well balanced sound - flawless intonation up and down. Unplugged, the sound is a little bright, however that's my preference. Plugged and you're only limited by what you're plugged into - the guitar is not the weak link. I have a Simon & Patrick but they are not comparable soundwise as the S&P has a cedar top and produces a very different tone.
Durability:
Guitar seems quite durable thus far (had it for a month).
