Washburn WCG25SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar
The WCG25SCE is part of Washburn's Comfort Series of acoustic-electric guitars, featuring a nice looking beveled top.
This guitar is definitely a looker, with its Grand Auditorium shape and Venetian cutaway shape being highlighted by a beautiful mahogany/maple binding.
The Washburn Comfort Series is meant to combine looks and ergonomics to provide convenient playing experience. The series have unique belly and top carves that are designed to hug the body to make playing comfortable and less awkward. In the case of the WCG25SCE, it has a beveled top at the lower bout that is also a part of the guitar's mahogany binding.
Aside from comfort, the WCG25SCE also provides plenty of aesthetic details. The top of this guitar is made of book matched solid Sitka spruce while the back and sides are made of rosewood. The book matched rosewood back is split by a great looking maple/mahogany/maple strip, which matches the guitar's mahogany/maple body and headstock binding. The guitar's centerpiece is a sound hole rosette that is made of alternating maple and mahogany.
The rosewood capped headstock comes with a pearl inlaid Washburn logo, as well as a stylized W and Washburn branded die cast tuners with ebonite buttons. The guitar has a 25.5" scale mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard that is devoid of inlays, matching the guitar's mahogany bound rosewood bridge. The 20 fret neck is satin finished and features a two-way trussrod. Rounding off its features are matching black NuBone saddle and nut.
The Washburrn WCG25SCE is equipped with Fishman Isys 501T electronics. It is a mic and undersaddle transducer system that provides flexible amplified tones. It also comes with a nifty integrated tuner.
The WCG25SCE Acoustic-Electric is currently available with a suggested retail price of $1069.90.

When you consider how much time and effort you put into getting your rig to sound just the way you want, it makes sense to ensure your guitar cables are also up to the job - after all they're an important part of the tone chain. Also remember that occasionally things will go wrong, so always carry at least one spare cable to gigs and rehearsals.
