Washburn was initially known for Electric Guitars. But they have since expanded successfully into the entry to mid-tier acoustic guitar market, and the Woodline WL012SE exemplifies why - with its balance of premium features, build and value for money.

It features a solid mahogany top, supported by laminate mahogany back and sides, which gives a warmer tonality and a very earthy vibe. It also comes with Graphtech NuBone nut and saddle, a premium feature that you normally have to pay extra to add into your guitar.

Giving this guitar its amplified voice is a Fishman Presys II 301T electronic pickup/preamp system that comes with a built-in tuner. On top of all that, the Washburn WL012SE does not skimp on ornamentation, which includes the Washburn Parquet rosette and rosewood bindings.

With its great features and continued positive reception in the market, the Washburn WLO12SE is highly recommended for those who want a nice looking all mahogany acoustic electric guitar.
