General What is your overall opinion of this product? After having to return a 75 year old parlor guitar to a store because the back was coming undone, I had an itch ever since for one of these v-neck parlors. Was on the fence about this one, because I read good things about the solid wood version. But once I had it in hand, WOW, my fears were put to rest. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Pretty awesome quality. I was expecting a more distressed look. But all in all everything looks really nice. I did remove 1 star because the case's compartment was not attached to the guitar. I'll have to figure out how to permanently set it in. but guitar was awesome. Has a few minor glue marks, but really great quality Feel Was it easy to reach the strings? How comfortable was the playing position? Neck feels good. low action easy to chord. Very easy to use. Tone Is the tone well balanced? How does it project? great tone for its size. Was really ready to go out of the box! no tuning need when I removed it from shipping case. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? looks great. but was expecting a more aged look. but looks awesome anywayz Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? great value. Playability How was the action out of the box? set up great out of the box. action low, no buzzing, and no tuning needed
Not something I'd play everday

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? With this model, I had nothing but trouble. The first one I received the strings were laying so close the the frets on the neck, I couldn't play it. I took it to a Luthier for adjustment and he said the neck had a bad twist in it. Okay, so I send it back in exchange for another thinking it may have just been a fluke.When next one came I took it out of it's beautiful case, and looked at it. OMG I said. The strings were so high and hard I really had to push my fingers down to clear the notes, plus the mother of pearl up the fretboard were cracked. One of them actually fell out of the diamond shape slot. I just about cried. I called Washburn to find out what the heck was going on why they couldn't seem to get me a decent guitar sent out. Customer service was nice, and refunded my money. I'm starting to think this guitar is made as a show piece. Something you might want to hang on your wall as a conversational piece!!!! General Your general opinion of this product. Cheap, cheater, the cheapest! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Twingy, twangy, and I couldn't hear the difference between the mid range, and high range, it's just one big range of "DEEP" sound. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? It did look very Antique, which drew me to it in the first place.
