I hail from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Played in local Metalcore band I-Awake about 10 years ago, before that a bunch of skatepunk/pop-punk bands, currently play in a 70s, 80s Punk Rock Party band called REO s**twagon. I also do acoustic projects on the side that are more of the atmospheric acoustic type.

Interesting note; Used to operate a record label with distro to over 100 countries.

hello everyone  my name is Terry Becks and I am currently living in Cheboygan, Michigan, I published a daily newspaper 75 miles north of Chicago, for some time during the 1990's...I'm a songwriter on Staff at a mid-size Nashville publishing company 67 independant cuts so far.  hopefully heading for some major cuts soon.
Over the last 7 days I've purchased 3 Washburn guitars...EA-36, WCG25SCE AND WSJ60SCEK ELITE. I've owned Washburns since 1994 and there are at least 2 more from the Cumberland Series That I'll call mine by the beginning of summer.   Anyway, thanks for listening.   Terry

I grew up in Green Bay and Oshkosh.  We used to come up there and pick cherries.  If a person has never seen a Cherrie orchard, they should put it on there bucket list. I think I ate as many as I picked.  LOL,,  Peach and Apple orchards are nice, but there is nothing like a Cherrie orchard in bloom.    Tom.  :)

Hi Tom   I get to Green Bay every now and again for a Nashville Songwriters (NSAI) meeting it is about a 10 hour round trip along the north shore of Lake Michigan  beautiful in Spring-Summer and Fall  not so much in winter, and I remember the cherry orchards I picked a bunch myself.

Hello! My name is Nikolay, and i'm from Moscow, Russia. Washburn D20-12, which I bougth few weeks ago on ebay, will be my first Washburn instrument and it is really cool guitar!

I play stringed instruments mostly (guitars, bass, mountain dulcimer, mandolin, clawhammer banjo, irish bouzouki, bowed psaltery, ukulele), and I love different types of good music - country, blues, jazz, folk, surf, rockabilly and all that oldtime stuff.

Sorry for bad english - I have very little practice in this.

Newfoundland - Upper Gullies and Eastport, to be exact. Mid-Atlantic, really, closer to London England than London Ontario...

Just got a J12sn, my first Washburn - still experimenting with strings to get the sound I want, but the neck is far and away  the best amongst my four acoustics. Bought it primarily as a beater guitar for parties, camping trips, summer at the cabin. More than pleased with it so far.,..

Hi Folks

I was born in southern England but moved to the south of France a few years ago.

A few weeks ago, I was talking to my wife about the various guitars that I've owned during the 40 years that I've been playing. One that held a lot of affection was a Washburn acoustic with a birds-eye maple back and sides, the Washburn EA40. I'd bought the guitar new around 1990.

A few days later, while browsing the internet I found my old guitar for sale...!! I knew it was mine as I'd fitted a tortoiseshell pick guard and the current owner lived just a couple of miles from where I used to live. 

A deal was done and after 25 years, it's come home.

I now play in a four piece 50's and 60's rock & roll band, and for smaller venues my lead guitarist and I play the same songs as an 'unplugged' duo. The Washburn will be used for the duo work.

Thanks for listening....

Graham

First post checking in from Highlands Ranch, CO.  WD7SCE on its way as we speak.  I needed an acoustic-electric to play in church and after trying out comparable guitars in the price range, I really liked the deep sound and playability of the Washburn.  In addition to praise and worship music, I play a little of everything, strumming and finger-picking, from bluegrass and country to classic rock.  The Washburn seemed to handle that range better than other guitars.  Actually this isn't my first Washburn; I picked up a old Washburn 12-string for $10 at a garage sale a number of years ago, but it had a crack near the neck and couldn't handle the stress.  I probably should focus on playing one instrument really well instead of being mediocre at three, but I also play a fair amount of mandolin and bass.  The guitar was my first love though.  I'll report back once I put some time in on the WD7SCE.
