When it comes to entry-level acoustic guitars, Washburn is known for great value, as exemplified by the Harvest Series D7S.

For the price, you are getting a true solid spruce top dreadnought, with mahogany back and sides.

Neck specifications stay true to classic dreadnought designs, with its 25.5" scale length and 1.6875" nut width.

While others can offer something with similar specs, only Washburn can do that without holding back on aesthetics, as seen in the D7S' custom wood inlaid rosette, which visually sets it apart from other budget dreads.

Pros

It is commended mostly for its value for money, almost everyone who bought this guitar report that it is a steal. Build quality and aesthetics are also often praised, while others are just as impressed with its familiar dreadnought tone and playability.

Cons

As is the case with most entry level acoustics, there are some who are not too happy with the guitar's setup out of the box, stating that only after getting it setup properly did they get the most out of the D7S.

Overall

If you're looking for a distinct looking solid top that will not burn a hole in your wallet, then check this guitar out.
