Can anyone tell me more about these mini jumbos, what are the neck scales and neck profiles?

Here's the info you were looking for:

http://www.washburn.com/products/acoustics/bodystyles.php

Look about 2/3 of the way down, just below the "Jumbo" models.

Body size, scale.....no nut width, but I can measure my WMJ11S if you need it.

.....and, yes, I realize this is an older thread.....for those of you who haven't tried to reply to a thread that has not been active for a while on the new forum software, you will see this (in red print over a pink background  :o ) above where you would type in your reply:

Hi folks,

I posted this question in another thread about the WMJ40SCE (mini jumbo), which I just purchased.  What, if any, is the difference between body/style of the mini jumbo, the baby jumbo and a grand auditorium?

Thanks,
Steve

I just answered part of my above question on the difference between baby and mini jumbos, by seeing photo of former in another posting.  Still curious on mini vs. grand auditorium.

Hi, Stevel

Here's a link to Washburn's body dimension charts....hope you find the baby jumbo there, I'm sure the Grand Auditorium is there right below the Dreadnought, and I'm pretty sure the MJ is there:

http://www.washburn.com/products/acoustics/bodystyles.php

BTW, I have one of the MJ's, just not the one you're interested in.  IMHO, it is one of my best Washburns, and I have a few of their all solid-wood models.  The WMJ11S is that good...I bought it for a "campfire guitar", now I hate to take it camping for fear that I'll damage it somehow.

That makes my "campfire" guitar a WD32SW....a nicely mod'ed all solid-wood model....not exactly the best choice for a campfire guit  :-\ .

Cheers from.....

Thanks for suggesting the above link, Dugly.  I also appreciate the feedback on your experiences with the Washburn mini jumbo line.  That is reassuring.  I ended up buying the WMJ40SCE, which was part of their 2010-2011 offerings.  WMS has them on clearance for $280 (see link below).  I am new to acoustic guitars AND it was weird to buy something without playing it.  However, I am very pleased with both the acoustic and the electric sounds.  It has some nice features for something at this price point.  I find myself playing/practicing more now, as living in a condo kinda cramps the electric guitar and bass playing (no man cave).
