hey there Dawgs 12 were abouts in Canada are you we do have jam sessions here but unfortunatley they get taken over by the local flavor and unless you get asked chances are you wont get up on stage to play with them.         louis

Hey there Mavafamusic not sure by what you mean by soft but I would recommend you try new strings as it sounds more of a string problem than a guitars problem if that doesn't work then check to see if your tuning peg is slipping well good luck down under and I hope this has helped.                     louis

Welcome aboard sixtyfourford. Great tradition, great guitars for the money, but mostly, all my Washburn acoustics sound great! Which electric do you have?



Thanks for welcoming me in Pike.  My electric is the WI14. The Walnut color. I got it mid-year for my birthday.  Along with a Crate GTX15 practice amp.    I love the way the WI14 feels and looks.  Light. Smooth neck. And the scallop for the strumming arm is cool even though the body isn't too thick. Dual humbuckers. It is an in-expensive piece that doesn't look and play cheap.  Another low priced guitar from Washburn that gets good reviews.
I did have to set the intonation on it though. And I just recently readjusted the action on it.  Other than that all I've done is put some Earnie Balls' on it.  As I mentioned in my first post it has taken some getting use to.  I've been playing the D10 with a heavy hand.  I tried to play the electric the same way but sounded awful.  My son-in-law would pick it up and make such sweet sounds come from it.  Not me.  At least not at first. Ok, still not[:I] I later found out I needed to ease up on both hands.  I'm getting there.  
I love the D10 so much though it is hard to put it down.  My wife said the dealer took it out of the box, tuned it and gave it to her.  The action on it is great. I had to adjust the neck relief a bit when I went to lighter strings but no other problems with it. I am using EJ26 D'Addarrios.  Well built guitar for $220. I love the sound that comes out of mine.
I'm thinking of getting an acuostic-electric next.  Washburn of course. Would you care to influence my decision?

This one would be nice!

Hey Pike I've never seen this one before, even went to my Washburn Dealer In Vancouver BC and they could not find it listed in any of there cataloques but I surely would love to add this one to my collection I really loved the floral inlay with what looks like herring bone on the back if you do come across one let me know what they cost or if you know were else I can look to purchase one.hope to heqar from you soon                  louis

Dont own a cumberland but have played one for several months and found the action to be higher than most of my guitars I also had the bridge shaved a bit to lower it but found that when I did play my other guitars (washburn,epiphone,aria,yamaha,tak)it was easy to play them.                   louis

Take it to a shop you trust and have it fixed properly it should be a quick fix and not overly expensive also make sure you talk to the person fixing it after all you wouldn't trust your baby to a car mechanic to fix a cold    good luck        louis

Although Washburn puts out some very nice affordable guitars, I would not consider Washburn an economy brand. I would not consider the custom shop guitars economy brand, nor would I consider some of the other solid wood acoustic guitars Washburn has put out over the years economy brand either.

D30slover,

Welcome to the Forum here. I play in a bluegrass band, and own a D44SW Washburn. I cant tell you how many good comments I get from other guitar players who play Martins. My Washburn compares very favorably to a Martin D28. Loud, great tone, etc.

Washburn of course is one of the economy brands...Washburn, Alvarez, Epiphone, Yamaha, etc...but one makes a big mistake if they think that the economy brands cant compare with Martins, etc. My $600 D44SW is very much comparable to a $1200 Martin D28. All of the economy brands make fine guitars, and in my opinion Washburn is right at the top.

Hey Pike I would totally agree with you that almost all Waswhburn guitars have something to contribute it really depends on the sound you like it doesn't matter if it cost $200 or $10,000 they all contribute and if it gets yiu playing its all that really matters at the end everybody has to remember that playing is all that counts

you should try epi acoustic PR-6E-TR I use this as a secoundary when recording has more of a brassy sound and has some great inlay but together with  my D2003S it just makes some great sounds

THEY CAN START AT ABOUT $200.00 AND IF YOU HAVE THE TIME CHECK STORES THAT HAVE30-40 OF THEM AND PLAY AS MANY AS YOU CAN AND YOU SHOULD FIND ONE THAT REALLY SUITS YOUR NEED AND TASTE ESPECIALLY IF YOU CAN RUN IT THROUHG AN OLD MARSHALL AMP. GOOD HUNTING
