With the HD80, Washburn adds the “Elite” tier to their Heritage line of instruments. With a unique scalloped X-bracing, solid spruce top with the classic Washburn “heritage” rosette and abalone binding, this dreadnought size guitar has a big voice that is articulate and focused with plenty of projection. The back and sides are made of eye catching striped ebony in a high gloss finish that highlights the exotic draw of this striking wood. The 25 ½” scale, Laurel fingerboard and bridge that is similar in both look and hardness to E.I. Rosewood, will offer the player a familiarity of touch under the fingers. Okoume is the wood of choice for the neck and its natural matte finish is comfortable and fast in the hand. Appealing to the eyes, ears and hands; the HD80 is a true workhorse companion instrument that’s suitable for all players looking for a full-sized acoustic guitar with a big voice
