G26SCE

Color: Natural

SKU: HG26SCE-O-U

The HG26SCE-O is a Grand Auditorium acoustic guitar with cutaway for superior upper fret access. It features a solid Western Red Cedar top with Cathedral Peak Scalloped-X bracing for sublime tone that improves with age, Pau Ferro back and sides, a mahogany neck with an Ovangkol fingerboard and bridge, die-cast tuners with stylish ebonite buttons for quick, easy and accurate tuning, a Washburn tortoise pick guard and an abalone rosette.

The HG26SCE is built with a blend of a Cedar soundboard and Pau Ferro. Because it’s a bit smaller than a dreadnought, it’s more articulate and ideal for fingerstyle players. It is, however, both full and clear. Thanks to its built in Fisman Presys II 301T Tuner/Preamp, you’ll never need to carry around an extra tuner. The preamp features volume, bass and treble control for natural amplified acoustic tone, plus a phase switch to deal with feedback issues.

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.

CLASSIC VALUES WITH TODAY'S ADVANCES

For over 135 years, Washburn has been committed to providing the highest quality instruments. Whether it's a guitar, banjo, or mandolin – if it’s a Washburn, it won’t let you down.
