What A Great-Looking Guitar!!

By 

from Franklin, Tennessee

Comments about Washburn EA16 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The first thing you notice about this guitar is the pure beauty of it! WOW!! With the crown headstock design, it is much more appealing...to the eye...than it's big sisters, the Washburn EA17, EA20, and EA21 versions (Washburn Festival Series). And once you start playing it, you find out the rest of the story: It plays as good as it looks! I love the pure tones, using it solely as an acoustic guitar. Or when you plug it into an amp, it leaps to life with sounds that enhance any stage performance. To sum it up, this guitar is pure fun to play. Mine came right out of the box with a perfect setup. The action is good and low...easy to play...no buzzing. Just a beautiful sound that has always been the hallmark of Washburn. And all of this at an amazing price, too! You will be proud to show this guitar off among your closest friends...and it's gauranteed the raise some eyebrows among others in the crowd, who can't wait to see what you're unpacking at the party! I only have one very small complaint about this guitar: It always seems to come only with the gigbag from Washburn. That's a shame!! Anything as beautiful as this instrument should only come in the GC75 hardshell case from Washburn...even if it might cost a little more. Like most Washburn products, you'll never be disappointed with the EA16...gauranteed!!

I bought an EA8 and the EA16 is a step up

By 

from Wisner, NE

Comments about Washburn EA16 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

All the Washburn's I have tested play easy, less finger fatigue. I own a Rover and two days ago my EA8 arrived. It was ready to tune and play right out of the box. There was no fret buzz on any of the strings. The sound is full and resonant, and I was very pleased with the action between the 5th thru 12th frets. It's not quite a fingerpicker for classical or blue grass, although I have not fully explored its sound with an amp. I got so comfortable with the guitar that I used it to play at a funeral 2 days after receiving it.

Wow.

By 

from San Antonio

Comments about Washburn EA16 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I was looking for a good guitar. One that gave me great sound with or without an amp. I read the previous reviews for this guitar and it convinced me that this guitar really is awesome. I got it today, and it is everything it seems to be. Excellent. Without an amp it gives a full, ringing tone like a normal acoustic guitar. Some acoustic-electrics make a dull sound that hardly resonates. Not the case for this guitar at all. With an amplifier, it sounds even more amazing. I only have an electric practice amp, and even on that it sounds awesome. The preamp has amazing features. With this guitar, I have everything I originally set out to find. If you need a definite yes or no answer to whether it is really worth it to pay $360+ for this guitar, the answer is a proud YES.

Comments about Washburn EA16 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar a while ago and it is still as perfect as it was on day one. It is one of the best electro acoustics I have ever played. The blue color is amazing. I love this guitar.

Surely the best value out there

By 

from London, England

Comments about Washburn EA16 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I had never heard of this guitar. I went looking for an electro-acoustic and saw it in the shop. Utterly gorgeous to look at, got it down and played it. I'm primarily an electric guitar player, so the silky smooth narrow fretboard suited me just great. It sounds fantastic, the chorus is gorgeous. Faults? I found the pickup under the bridge sometimes gets dislodged when you change the strings and buzzes, but this is easily fixed with a dab of solder. If you are looking for the best value Electro-acoustic with drop dead gorgeous looks. This is it!

Gorgeous.

By 

from Toledo OH USA

Comments about Washburn EA16 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

When I was looking for a new acoustic, I saw this guitar hanging and couldn't take my eyes off it, and that's exactly what it does to anyone who sees it played too. It sounds incredible plugged in and has a sweet preamp. Unplugged it's amazing as well. Beautiful, full tone. Great action, easy to play. I've heard guitars three times the price sound this great. The only thing I regret about my purchase is not knowing it came in blue.

Comments about Washburn EA16 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

At first I would not even try a Washburn guitar. Now that I played and bought one of these guitars, my mind has changed.
