Washburn designed the Festival series to address the needs of the performing musician and it has succeeded for over 25 years. The Festival series was the standard acoustic/electric guitar seen on MTV’s “Unplugged” series and has since become one of the best selling and most copied guitars on the market. A comfortable body teamed up with quality Barcus-Berry electronics, hardware, and fine woods allows the pristine, crystalline highs to blend perfectly with a full, well rounded low end.
KEY WASHBURN FEATURES
Comfortable MJ Cutaway Body
The EA15's Mini-Jumbo body is easier to play for those that find the larger Dreadnought & Grand Auditorium shapes uncomfortable. The EA15 MJ is suited for smaller players, young learners, or musicians looking for the more focused and intimate voice of a small bodied guitar provides. Built with a cutaway, access to the upper frets is a breeze.
Plug-in ready and pre-equipped with a pickup loaded with features such as an onboard tuner, EQ controls and feedback resistance, all from Barcus-Berry, developer the first ever piezo crystal transducer for musical instruments in 1963.
Ice Tea Burst Gloss Finish
The Ice Tea Burst is a warm, honey colored treatment gracing this Festival EA15. This color really brings out the natural beauty of its Figured Maple top.
