Washburn’s Comfort Series combine looks and ergonomics to deliver the ultimate player-friendly guitars. With their unique belly and top carves, these guitars hug the body rather than digging into it and provide a comfortable playing experience whether you’re sitting or standing.

The Washburn Comfort Series G700SWE is the first all solid wood model in the Comfort Series, pairing a Torrefied Sitka Spruce soundboard with solid African Ovangkol back and sides on a Grand Auditorium body. The result is an instrument that benefits from the immediacy and volume of the vintage aged Torrefied top balanced by the warmth and richness of African Ovangkol, a tonewood with characteristics somewhat between that of Indian Rosewood and Black Walnut. The ergonomic armrest bevel as well as the body binding is mahogany and contributes to the instrument’s instant comfort as well as classy looks.

With its neutral “C” shaped neck, 1-3/4″ bone nut, and Graphtech Ratio-Tuned tuning machines, the all-solid Comfort G700SWE is recognizable and a joy to play. Plugged in, the solid wood Comfort G700SWE shines with its Fishman Prefix Blend system that allows the use of both the under saddle pickup and onboard microphone to create warm acoustic vibes. Includes an onboard tuner. A hard shell case is also included.

AN AMERICAN ORIGINAL

1883, Chicago. George Washburn begins a legacy of greatness with the first Washburn stringed instruments, bringing quality instruments priced for home musicians. In 1889, Washburn becomes the largest mandolin maker in America.

AGE OF INNOVATION

In the early 20th century Washburn continues to lead with quality guitars, banjos, and madolins. In 1912, Washburn releases the Lakeside Jumbo, the first dreadnought guitar. In 1930, Washburn merges with Tonk Brothers and releases the Solo Deluxe, the precursor of the auditorium style guitar and one of the best-selling guitars created.

AMPLIFIED AND ACOUSTIC

With the onset of the 1970's, Washburn releases the Wing series, our first electric models. The Wing series continues the Washburn standard by delivering a show quality instrument at a home artist price. In the 80’s and 90’s the Washburn Festival series revitalizes the art of acoustic performance, contributing to the rise of "unplugged" performances.
