Hey A&C

Has anyone tried out the Washburn 125th anniversary acoustics? Specifically, the WSJ 125.

The top one.

I've been looking for an acoustic with a budget of £250, and a shop near me has them for about that price, rather than the £400 they usually retail at.

It seemed pretty nice when I played it, but my experience with acoustics is somewhat limited. So, if anyone can think of one that would beat it, do suggest it!

I've never played or even seen one in person but 250 pounds sounds overpriced for the WJS125.

Can anyone comment on trembesi as a tonewood? I've never even heard of it before.
£250 overpriced? I've not been able to find it anywhere else for less than £400!

£250 seems like a very good deal to me. The best price I was able to find online was £277, most places seem be asking in excess of £400.
The Washburn website quotes $1149 including a case - this converts to roughly £675.
Washburn make some great acoustic guitars - this one looks a beaut.
Perhaps I jumped the gun regarding the value of the guitar.

Can anyone confirm if the WJS125 has a solid top? It doesn't say so but it just seems way too expensive not to have one.
