A Whole New Level for a Starter Acoustic-Electric Guitar!
It's time to get your fingers the starter acoustic-electric they've been itching for. The Washburn WCG18CE Comfort Series acoustic-electric guitar proudly boasts a select spruce top with a dark-sounding, bottom-end-booming mahogany back and sides. A smooth satin-finished mahogany neck spans 21 frets, topped with a slick rosewood fingerboard. This axe's grand auditorium body shape yields a big sound that its Fishman Isys+ electronics captures with precision, forging a signal eager to flow through your amplifier. Plus, the contoured armrest and belly carve mean this Washburn lives up to its "Comfort Series" name. If this is your first acoustic-electric guitar, then your ears and fingers are in for an exciting treat.
Washburn's Comfort Series
The Washburn Comfort Series are all about the player's experience. While yielding a warm and well-balanced tone that sounds great plugged in or not, your Washburn WCG18CE will rest snugly against your front with its comfortable belly and top carves, rather than digging into your sides the way most acoustic guitars tend to. If you've been itching to get into the world of acoustic-electrics, then this axe is an excellent place to start.
The Double-Teaming Power of Spruce and Mahogany
When it comes to choosing the right tonewoods, spruce and mahogany often go hand-in-hand. Spruce yields a crisp sound and also features an attractive linear grain pattern that looks as great as it sounds. It also holds up well to scratches and dings. Mahogany brings a rich and deep sound that really pushes the lows and mids of your chords. Together, these tonewoods are an irresistible recipe for a well-balanced and powerful sound -- and that's exactly what you get when you shoulder this Washburn guitar.
Captivating Fishman Isys+ Electronics
The "E" in WCG18CE stands for "electric" -- this Washburn features a Fishman 301T preamp system to capture and reproduce your performance, generating an output anyone within earshot will love. The controls on this preamp feature bass and treble dials, your master volume control, a phase switch, and an onboard tuner to keep your tuning under control.
Sturdy Mahogany Neck with Satin Finish
The mahogany neck on this acoustic electric axe rests comfortably in your hand, and the smooth satin finish makes for effortless playability. You have 21 frets spanning over a silky rosewood fingerboard, and a single cutaway provides ample room for your hand and fingers to hit those higher frets.
