The WA90CE appeared on our recommended list for Acoustic-Electric Guitars Under $200 from March 2020 until March 2021 when it was out-ranked by higher rated models.

Overview

The Washburn WA90CE is part of their apprentice series of guitars, aimed at beginners.

What separates this acoustic-electric guitar from other similarly priced guitars is its extra aesthetics, which include body and fretboard binding, along with a nice looking rosette.

This particular model sports a dreadnought with cutaway profile, following conventional tonewood configuration, mahogany for the back and sides and spruce for the top. The bridge and fretboard is crafted from rosewood, while the neck is also crafted from mahogany.

For plugging in, it comes with a built-in Isys+ preamp with tuner, volume control, basic EQ for adjusting treble and bass.

If you want to get an affordable guitar that doesn't look and sound cheap, check out Washburn WA90CE.

Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best Cheap Acoustic Electric Guitars Under $200.
