This is the first Washburn that I have ever owned, and I am already a very convinced convert to the brand. I currently own a Yamaha acoustic guitar, a Fender Stratocaster electric guitar, and an Ovation acoustic electric guitar - the Washburn Timber Craft Series D52SW is quickly becoming my favorite to play!

TONE: The sound is full and vibrant. The very appealing tone no doubt has to do with its solid mahogany back and sides. Mahogany is known for producing a "bright, balanced tone that is darker than maple but brighter than rosewood." You don't have to strum very hard to create a fair amount of volume. Finally, the Buzz Feiten Tuning System (which is standard on all Washburn guitars) helps to correct intonation problems that other guitar brands might experience.

LOOK: The solid spruce top meshes well with the mahogany and is a timeless color that will always look great. The rosewood butterfly bridge adds some personality and matches the rosewood fingerboard. The classic coloring works well for young and old guitarists and is appropriate for any setting.

FEEL: The shape of the guitar makes for a very comfortable playing experience. It simply feels great. The strings are very easy to push against the fingerboard (as opposed to my Ovation) which means that you can play for longer periods of time without getting finger fatigue! Remember that developing callouses on your fingertips is crucial if you are a beginner or simply don't play very often.

PRICE: This guitar is clearly more expensive than your average acoustic guitar, so if you are looking for an average musical experience than this guitar is not for you.

By Spiffyone on July 14, 2012
I have owned and played several guitars in this price range including Yamaha, Epiphone,and Taylor. This is one of the best in quality and sound.
Pluses:
Solid wood throughout: Finding a solid wood guitar and this price is rare.

Good construction: Not all factories in China are the same. This is built in one of the better ones. The finish is satin, and while not my favorite, it is flawless. The neck is more Taylor thin then meaty. I lowered the action by removing a shim in the bridge and it plays fine.

Buzz Feiten tuning system: One of the schemes to correct the inherent problems in a guitar's tuning is this modification to the nut. I find its effect subtle but I must give it a plus. Open chords are where the harmonics of a well tuned guitar ring out. In general it makes the guitar sound more expensive then it is. Tuning this guitar is a challenge and you should search for the method.

Sound: This guitar produces a balanced sound for me, with good detail of the individual strings. I would not say it has a big bottom end but it is there. The voiceing of open chords is a full and resonant one. Detail on the upper position is excellent with a ringing that you find in better guitars. I would not think of this as a blugrass cannon, but it works for everything else. I found no dead spot on the fretboard.

I like this guitar. The batwing bridge and the over-the-top inlay are dubious cosmetic choices I can do without, preferring a cleaner look to my guitars but the sound is great.
