The Washburn WJ45SCE12 features a solid Alaskan Sitka Spruce top supported by Quarter Sawn Scalloped Sitka Spruce bracing and beautiful flame maple back, sides and headstock cap. The satin finished mahogany neck provides playing comfort and 12 gold Grover 18:1 ratio tuners get and keep you in perfect tune. Added deluxe features are Abalone trim with flame maple binding. Maple has a brighter tone than mahogany or rosewood so it tends to sound clearer and more articulate, especially on this larger jumbo body where it might lose focus with a mellower sounding back and side wood. This is a big & lush sounding guitar.
We've added a Fishman Presys+/501T tuner/preamp for quick tune-up and superb amplified sound. The Presys+ features bass, middle and treble tone controls as well as an adjustable notch filter for feedback control, brilliance for added airiness and a phase switch for compatibility with a mic'd signal.
