A big, booming tone that can cut-through other instruments is what many guitarist are seeking, that included Michael Sweet. Best known as the guitar player in Stryper, Michael needed an acoustic that would work when playing live, recording or writing. The Michael Sweet J40SCE signature Washburn guitar features a jumbo body shape and extra depth, which is loud and clear, with well pronounced bass tone that most acoustics lack. This performance-first foundation has been enhanced visually with a solid bearclaw spruce top, highly figured quilted maple back & sides along with an ornate combination of inlays, rosette, and body binding. If you need to get a little louder it also has integrated Barcus Berry electronics. Plugged in or unplugged this acoustic is ready to roll.
