It would all depend on what is being done on the set up. When you're changing parts on the guitar, for reliable ones, it can become expensive.
As the guitar only costs $300, I guess it all depends on what work you get done.
I'd prefer a guitar that works as you would expect, when you walk out of the store.

You can say that again, worthy of repeating I mean.

As you walk out the door with it, it will sound like a very good sounding $300.00 guitar.  With a $35 to $50 setup it will play better, any guitar will regardless of price. Add another $10 and replace the saddle with Tusq, it will sound and play like like something much better than you expected was possible for a $300 guitar.

Point being?  It's a $300 guitar with some real potential built into it, and it's worth bringing out the potential.  Will is sound or play like Martin or Gibson? Never. A Taylor?  Well the few Taylors I've had in my hands were way over rated.  Given the choice, I'd rather spend the $300 (both of my Washburns) for a guitar that can sound and play as well as a $750 guitar,,,,, than a $3000 guitar (the Taylors I've played) that sound and play like a $1000 guitar.

I had bought a black Fender CD60, played it for 2 weeks before I bought the Washburn D10SCE. sold the Fender and never been happier or more satisfied about a guitar purchase. I have yet to change out the nut and saddle for bone, but it will happen one day. ( when I can let it go for 1-2 weeks to get the job done )


I know, the Fender CD60 is not even close to being in the same class as the D10.



The box said to install windows 2000 or better, so I installed Linux.

How does the D10s fare against a Fender CD360?
