The WP11SNS is based on designs Washburn used over 100 years ago. It features mahogany back and sides for a slightly more focused, articulate tone and has pearl dot fingerboard inlays. It has a 24.75" scale and feature a natural stain finish, solid cedar top supported by quarter sawn scalloped Sitka spruce bracing, abalone rosette and standard Washburn rosewood bridge. The mahogany neck features a rosewood fingerboard with 44mm nut and gold open gear tuners. These specs produce a nicely balanced tone perfect for fingerpicking and singer/song writers. The clarity of the parlor sized body is especially suited to recording and mic'd performance.

After learning about parlor guitars, my interest in playing was renewed, so first I purchased a Gretsch "Jim Dandy" and bought this Washburn WP11SNS shortly thereafter.
Nothing against the Jim Dandy - I stand by my original review of that instrument - it's fairly priced, fun to play, and has a boxy, blusey sound that has attitude.
This Washburn, however, is in a totally different class - after tuning it up, strumming a few chords and doing a bit of the fingerpicking I am currently studying, I could immediately see that this guitar is going to be far more versatile than the Jim Dandy.
Like the Jim Dandy, this parlor-sized body is very comfortable to play (I'm a medium sized guy with medium sized hands/not the longest fingers). The volume this guitar can put out for it's size is pretty impressive, but you can finger the strings softly and they resonate for a good while i.e. this guitar is very expressive.
Overall construction is top notch and I especially like the open headstock and back facing tuners - really easy to adjust a string without the need to bend your wrist at a weird angle. Love the satin finish - the neck is SO comfortable to play.
I buy a lot of things on Amazon, but this is easily one of the best purchases I've made in 2015. If you want to play acoustic steel string guitar, this Washburn would be totally worth the modest investment, and you would not outgrow it for a long, long time, IMHO. :)
Of course the sound is the most important part and it really delivers that front-porch bluesy sound I like. Great for finger-picking. A really great deal for a new player because it's so easy to fret notes. Intonation was perfect.
This is my first Washburn and I couldn't be happier. Plays better than Fender or Martin guitars I've played that cost far more.
On opening the package I was impressed with the workmanship and it's beautiful satin finish...I think I won't ever go back to gloss type finishes because this guitar seems to breath as you play it.. You can feel the body and neck vibrate.
In my other guitars with gloss type finishes I never felt this...
There are some unique overtones that are very pleasing to my ears as I play it and I find myself playing over the body letting the sound hole breath natural uninterrupted
Do yourself a favor and at least find one to try before you buy...You won't be disappointed
Also for you who are like me want Body dimensions and can't find them...
Total length 38.3
Top bow 9.78
Bottom Bow 13.5
Body length 18.5
And weight hardly anything...
