Help choosing a Washburn acoustic
« on: December 05, 2018, 06:37:11 PM »
 Greetings all!
I've been using the forum for info for quite a while now; Washburn specs and history being rather hard to find.
I currently own 2 WI64 electrics and used to have a Warren Haynes Signature 5240 , but sold it when times were leaner.

I am a former drummer, former FOH engineer... only play guitar as well as the little bit I have picked up from bandmates and friends.

That said, I am looking for a solid "daily driver" type instrument and have 3 options on my short list right now, all used:

D21S/N

D28S

D52SWK

I will say about the  WHaynes: it was a little dry sounding to me. Not a lot of body or presence really.

I know the 52 is the only all solid wood of my 3 choices.... and surprisingly only 70 bucks or so more than 21 ....

But what instrument would you suggest for someone just starting to build their acoustic callouses and learn more than 4 chords?


Washburn WI 64 Red with VCC
Washburn WI 64 Black with EMG
Washburn WI 36  "tele"
