The King of Bang for the Buck

Sound For the money, you might not be able to find a better sounding acoustic dreadnought. Coming in under $500, you get a solid spruce top, mahogany sides and neck, and an upscale rosette. I've used the D10 for cowboy chords, classical fingerstyle, and jazz. The rather narrow string spacing is great for those with smaller hands or those who tend to fret bass notes with the thumb. The tone is bassy and full. The D10 is not a Martin, but approximates the Martin sound for pennies on the dollar.

Action, Fit, & Finish The guitar was well setup when purchased, although this might be a credit to the retailer rather than Washburn. The finish was flawless without runs or bubbling. Intonation is spot on. The only gripe one might register is with the bridge pins: they seem to be made of rather flimsy plastic which dimples and compresses easily.

Liked about it Tone is head and shoulders above the competition in this price range. The neck profile is about as slim as it gets on an acoustic. And the fit and finish are impeccable.

Didn't like This guitar did not respond well to a change in climate; 2 weeks in Arizona turned my smooth little acoustic into a warped mess. My luthier says this situation is quite common with acoustics which are made in relatively humid countries and then imported to the US. If you intend to move an imported acoustic to a dry area, invest in a humidifier!

Overall satisfaction:
