A 6-string bluegrass machine.
The Washburn D64SW dreadnought acoustic guitar combines the quality of Washburn guitars with careful craftsmanship to create a true bluegrass machine. The guitar is built on the dreadnought platform for a full, balanced sound in the most popular guitar body design in history. This model starts with a solid spruce top for full, warm tone right out of the box. The back and sides are solid rosewood, bound with a striking ivoroid binding. The tuning machines are Grover Sta-Tite tuners with original butter bean buttons, offering precision tuning. The Washburn guitar comes out of the box looking and feeling like an old friend. The natural stain and the pure finish give it a smoky mountain feel and vibe.
The Buzz Feiten Tuning System is a tempered tuning formula, which uses a compensated nut and saddle to correct the inherent intonation problems of the Western tuning formula. The system that Buzz devised has been a godsend to musicians. Fans of the system include Eddie Van Halen, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Liona Boyd and Andy Summers. The Buzz Feiten Tuning System is standard on all USA made Washburn basses and is featured on select imported models. Washburn is the only major guitar manufacturer to incorporate the system as a standard feature on production acoustic guitars.

Comments about Washburn D64SW Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:
What a fantastic guitar. The look, the sound, this guitar is all you'll ever need. The guitar is beautiful and comes in a fantastic case. This guitar is on par with much more expensive Martins and Taylors. This guitar has made me a true believer in the Washburn name. You won't regret this purchase.
