With an exotic koa top and a mini-jumbo cutaway body, the Festival EA55G acoustic-electric guitar offers rich tone, stunning looks, and exceptionally comfortable playability. It’s equipped with Barcus-Berry electronics to give you the sound and control you need for a superior plugged-in experience. Ready for the stage and studio, with an exotic look you’ll be proud to display at home, the Festival EA55G will stand out in your guitar collection.
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.
Comfortable Mini Jumbo Cutaway Body
The Festival EA55G's mini jumbo body is easier to play for those that find the larger dreadnought and grand auditorium shapes uncomfortable. The EA55G is suited for smaller players, young learners, or musicians looking for the more focused and intimate voice that a small bodied guitar provides. Built with a cutaway so that access to the upper frets is a breeze.
Exotic Koa Top
The distinctive Koa top gives the Festival EA55G an exotic look that stands out. Matched with catalpa back and sides, and a mahogany neck, the EA55G’s rich tone belies its comfortably smaller size.
The Festival EA55G is equipped with a preamp and pickup system from Barcus-Berry, the developer of the first ever piezo crystal transducer for musical instruments in 1963. With features such as an onboard tuner, EQ controls and feedback resistance, the EA55G offers exceptional plugged-in performance.
