Washburn Acoustic Guitars: WD 25S Dreadnought

by Guitar Guru

”A Solid Top at a Rock Bottom Price”

The Washburn WD 25S is about as solid as acoustic guitars come. At just ~$329, the WD 25S may seem to be a cheap acoustic guitar – price wise – but quality wise she’s as steady as a rock. Washburn is known to deliver quality guitars at half the price of similar-quality guitars from other manufacturers; this model is no exception!

Built on a dreadnought body, the WD 25S has the breadth of shoulders and a depth of body that has made the dreadnought style the most popular acoustic guitar model. Made with a solid Alaskan Sitka spruce top and sides and back made of rosewood, the WD 25S had a deep, resonant tone that is at once rich and warm and that holds its tuning surprisingly well, especially for an acoustic guitar in this price range.

The WD 25S is built to be heard, and the volume of this instrument will carry across crowded rooms and help you to hold your own in most any situation, and while it is designed for pick style playing, without the right weight of strings it can tend to get a bit ‘boxy’ sounding. To fix this you may need to experiment with the right weight of strings for your particular style of playing, but overall you will find this guitar to be a solid choice for an acoustic guitar at a rock bottom price.

Recently I've seen guitars with wide necks, suited to finger-picking, but with PICK-GUARDS!! This guitar seems made to FLAT PICK, but there's no guard! Helloooo...?? Is there anybody IN there??? When did the luthiers and players lose contact??
