Buffalo Grove, IL, January 21, 2016 — Washburn Guitars is proud to announce the addition of two new models to its acclaimed Comfort Series. The Comfort Series combine looks and ergonomics to deliver the ultimate player-friendly guitars. With their unique top carves, these guitars sit comfortably under your forearm thanks to the beveled edge.
The WCG20SCE is a Grand Auditorium style acoustic/electric guitar that features a book matched solid Sitka spruce top whose tone will improve with age, supported by Quarter Sawn Scalloped Sitka Spruce bracing, rosewood back and sides, a cutaway for superior upper fret access and premium Fishman 301T electronics for natural amplified acoustic tone. Of course the unique feature of this model is the beveled mahogany binding on the lower bout that provides the comfort the series gets its name from by removing the harsh angle that would normally cut into your forearm. Other features are the mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard and matching rosewood capped headstock and bridge. Diecast tuners get and keep you in tune.
The WCG25CE is a Grand Auditorium style acoustic/electric guitar with a venetian cutaway for superior upper fret access. A highlight of the Comfort Series is the beveled top at the lower bout and, in the case of the WCG25CE, the bevel becomes part of the beautiful mahogany binding. The guitar features a Select Spruce top, rosewood back and sides, mahogany/maple bound body and headstock. The mahogany neck has a rosewood fingerboard devoid of inlays and in tandem with the mahogany bound rosewood bridge adds an aura of understated elegance. A maple/mahogany/maple strip splits the book matched rosewood back as well. The rosewood capped headstock features a pearl inlaid Washburn logo and stylized W as well as Washburn branded gold die cast tuners. The gorgeous rosette is made of alternating maple and mahogany. The included Fishman 301T is an integrated tuner/under saddle pickup combo for versatile amplified tonal shaping.
