Unfortunately this is no longer available new in stores, so if you’re looking for an alternative then check out our guide to The Best Acoustic Electric Guitars.


The Washburn Festival EA12 has a “mini jumbo” body, and while the two words used to describe it seem contradictory – they do make sense because it does follow the round body shape of jumbo acoustics, but in a more compact profile.

With this configuration, you get some of the benefits of a jumbo acoustic, while alleviating some of the discomfort associated with their bulky size.

Basswood is the core tonewood used for the body and top, while the neck is crafted from mahogany.

And as expected from Washburn, they did not hold back with aesthetics and features, giving this guitar a rosewood bridge and fingerboard, abalone rosette, white binding and chrome die-cast Grover style tuning machines.

It comes with built-in preamp and pickup system along with a nifty tuner.

This compact jumbo shape acoustic-electric guitar gives you the best of both worlds, so to speak, and most of the reviews are in agreement.
