Washburn WCG55CE Koa Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar
Washburn Comfort Deluxe 55 Series Koa guitar with deluxe recurve-style Ergonomic Armrest Bevel; Grand Auditorium cutaway body with Koa top, back, sides, and Fishman electronics.
Washburn's Comfort Series combine looks and ergonomics to deliver the ultimate player-friendly guitars. With their armrests, these guitars hug the body rather than digging into it and provide a comfortable playing experience whether you're sitting or standing.
The WCG55CE Koa is a Grand Auditorium style acoustic/electric guitar with a venetian cutaway for superior upper fret access. A highlight of the Comfort Series is the deluxe recurve-style ergonomic armrest bevel at the lower bout which becomes part of the mahogany top binding. The guitar features a Koa top and Koa back and sides, mahogany/maple bound body and headstock.
The satin finished mahogany neck has an Ovankol fingerboard devoid of inlays and in tandem with the mahogany bound Ovankol bridge adds an aura of understated elegance. A maple/mahogany/maple strip splits the book matched Koa back as well. The headstock features a mother-of-pearl Washburn logo and 18:1 ratio tuners. The Washburn Parquet style rosette is made of alternating maple and mahogany.
The WCG55CE-O is a fantastic sounding acoustic guitar in its own right but the addition of premium Fishman electronics makes for an outstanding stage performance guitar. The Fishman 501T Presys+ is an integrated tuner/preamp system for versatile amplified tonal shaping.
