Comment: This great guitar came to us directly from Washburn as a factory blem. My tech went over it from top to bottom and it plays great and looks great. It has a few minor cosmetic flaws on the heel, body binding, head stock, and fretboard edge which you can see in the last five photos.These flaws are purely cosmetic and do not affect playability whatsoever.

My wife and I own 2 steel string acoustics and 2 electrics as well. I love classical guitar and have been wanting to venture into the classical genre. I am very impressed and happy with this Washburn. It is far my beautiful in person than the photos suggest. It is very well constructed and plays beautifully. My only complaint is that it seems to go out of tune quickly. That may be simply more of a prooblem with the classical style tuners perhaps. I bought a Chateau shortly after and it is not the same quality as this Washburn. This was a true steal for the money. We now have 6 guitars and will be adding more I am sure. But this one I would highly recommend for the money. I just wanted to give a quick update. I have since bought a Cordoba C5 and granted the Cordoba may sound slightly better. However this Washburn has lower action and a flatter neck which makes it easier to play. Now that the strings are broken in it stays in tune well as well. I just get a slight buzz on the 5th fret of the high e sometimes. But I really love this guitar.

Here's all you need to know: if you are looking for a cheap classical guitar, this is the one for you, you are getting much more than what you are paying for.
For the rest of my review I won't take the price into consideration, so keep in mind you're not paying 600$
Pros: Item arrived quickly and in absolute perfect condition, no scratch or visual imperfection whatsoever. the side and back wood is gorgeous in my opinion. The sound quality is very rich( I wasn't expecting it at such a low price), the action is very good (I will get it tune a little lower but it really was great straight out of the box). Built-in tuner is easy to use and very accurate. Pick-up gives a rich and clear tone when plugged-in thru a good amp. Once you get use to your new guitar I would recommend upgrading the strings as you will get an even richer and clearer sound for a tiny investment.
Cons: I don't really like the color of the top, a little too orange for me( I prefer plain-natural wood look). The pick-up is quite unforgiving and seems to focus a bit too much on finger-noise (that's my only real disappointment) so it's really not a guitar you could use for a live concert (but if that's your plan you'll need to show much more money). The guitar cannot be played standing up as it lacks attachment point for a strap. The sound isn't as powerfull as a full hardwood guitar (keep in mind, you're paying a ridiculous price).
All in all, I am 100% satisfied with this classical guitar. it ain't perfect but for the price it cost you cannot be anything but glad you bought it, enjoy!

So as most have stated this is a very nice guitar for the price. My biggest issue is that the nylon strings don't heard so well by the pickup. Kind of sucks because i like playing with it plugged in. However I'm still happy with it and like it a lot. It's very beautiful and sounds nice., It is orangy, if you're sensitive to that this may not be your guitfiddle.

Everybody said it was great out of the box i disagree. i was totally disappointed with the action. The strings sit way far from the neck. I'd consider adjusting the action absolutely mandatory first thing when you get it! be careful not to throw away the box before grabbing the allan wrench that is taped to the inside of it. Go buy new strings. My friend suggested extra hard d'addario strings to me. remove all the strings but the high and low E's and plug in the allan wrench to adjust the truss rod. TURN IT CLOCKWISE very slowly until the strings come down far enough. Keep plucking the Large E as you tighten. once it starts to rattle with a normal pluck turn the key back till it doesn't and put your new strings on. If you don't know how youtube it. This is delicate business so if you don't feel comfortable stop and take it to a shop but it worked amazingly well for me and the action is perfect now and i like the guitar a lot.

I've been playing guitar for 49 years (electric guitars and steel-stringed acoustics). I've never owned a classical guitar because I didn't want to spend a lot of money on something I might not play very often, and have been unimpressed by those I've played in this price range. However, I took a chance since Washburns are generally decent-enough guitars.

I made the right choice. It's well worth the budget price for an above average budget guitar, and I've ended up playing it quite often.

CONS:
1. Its top color. It's probably the official guitar of the Syracuse University Orange football team - but it's acceptable.
2. "Dipped finish" appearance. It's super-glossy and a little thick, although not as thick as some other inexpensive guitars.
3. Fret edges are protruding and sharp, they need to be filed.

PROS:
1. Back and side wood is attractive.
2. Tuner is accurate and comes with 9-volt battery included.
3. Heavy 9-foot cord included for connection to amp.
4. Stays in tune once strings stabilize after initial multiple tunings.
5. For me, action was a little high at first, but was adjusted to "just right" and is easily played.
6. If not played side-by-side with guitars costing hundreds more, it sounds pretty good. Decent volume.
7. Plugged-in sound is nice "flat", but EQ adjustments don't hurt.
8. Nubone (not CHEAP plastic) nut and saddle.
9. Wasburn is a better and better-looking guitar (with better brand recognition) than the no-name classical guitar I saw at Costco for about the same price as this one's sale price ($150): Costco guitar looked cheap and wasn't cutaway or electric like the Washburn, although it played OK and didn't have sharp, protruding fret edges.

In conclusion, there'll be no buyer's remorse with this Washburn.
