D10S or D10QSB??
« on: October 09, 2006, 01:27:10 AM »
Hello

I am thinking of buying a Washburn Acoustic Dreadnought Guitar. I am getting confused between the D10S and the D10QSB. Besides the looks, what exactly are the differences between these models in terms of sound, quality, value-for-money and so on? I personally like the sunburst color, but my first preference will be the one which is better overall.

Please do advise.

The D10QSB has a quilted maple top. Not sure if it is solid maple, but I don't think so. The D10S does have a solid spruce top. If that's the case, definitly go for the D10S, the sound will improve over time, not so much with a laminated maple top. They both have mahogany sides and back. Washburn customer service could tell you. You could also contact Dave at http://www.rggmusic.com/default.cfm He would probably know also.

QSB is maple veneer on laminate top. The S and SB are solid spruce top. Seek and thou shalt find  - i.e. read my earlier thread on this: http://www.washburn.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6627

<searching>  - What's this (http://www.washburn.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=4525)??:

Hi...I recently got myself a Washburn D10QSB
 
So you already have *one* QSB and getting one more?  Or did you misplace the first one?!?  [:D]
