"Washburn needs better quality control"
Overall: 3 out of 5 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The Pros for this would be it's case, as I was really impressed because of the fine quality case with excellent padding on the inside and lock and key as well as plenty of room for extras. The Cons are no quality control. The binding on the curves/gluing was poorly done and the finish had a very displeasing set of marks that line up with the edge of the bridge. There was also a crack in the neck pocket as well as other little flaws in the craftsmanship. Straight from a distance it's a beautiful instrument but upon inspection I was very displeased. A request for return was sent due to damage (crack). Didn't bother to set it up for sound but I did listen to some videos online of others and it sounds pretty bright with clear tone according to what I've heard in those videos.
