Washburn comfort deluxe 55 Series koi guitar has deluxe recurve-style ergonomic Armrest bevel, Grand Auditorium cutaway body with Koa top, back, and sides, and Fishman electronics. Washburn’s Comfort Series blends aesthetics and ergonomics to offer the most player-friendly guitars on the market. Instead of digging into the body, these guitars embrace it, providing for a more enjoyable playing experience. It makes no difference whether you’re seated or standing.

The wcg55ce-o is an acoustic/electric guitar in the Grand Auditorium design with a Venetian cutaway for easy access to the higher frets. The Deluxe recurve-style ergonomic Armrest bevel at the lower bout, which forms part of the mahogany top binding, is a feature of the Comfort Series. The guitar has a koi top, back, and sides, as well as a Mahogany/Maple bound body and headstock. The satin-finished mahogany neck features an Ovangkol fingerboard with no inlays, which, when combined with the mahogany bound Ovangkol bridge, gives the guitar a subtle beauty. The book-matched koi back is also separated by a maple/Mahogany/maple strip.

A mother-of-pearl Washburn logo and 18:1 ratio tuners adorn the headstock. The Washburn parquet style rosette is constructed of maple and mahogany in alternating patterns. The wcg55ce-o is a wonderful sounding acoustic guitar in and of itself, but the addition of quality Fishman electronics elevates it to a new level of stage performance. The Fishman; 501T Press+ is a flexible amplified tonal shaping device with an integrated tuner/preamp system.

The comfort and appearance of the WCG55CE have been emphasized, but not at the price of sound quality – the WCG55CE has a great tone. Because of the all-koa construction and superb craftsmanship, the tone is well-balanced and pleasant.

    This guitar is fantastic. It’s well made and a lot of fun to play. The only annoyance was that the first guitar I received was damaged, and I had to return it. The return/refund process, on the other hand, went without a hitch, and the replacement immaculate guitar came two days ago. This instrument comes highly recommended by me!

    Be cautious when purchasing: this guitar is NOT made of solid Koa, despite what some may claim. If you’re going to spend $900 on a guitar, I strongly advise you to go with a brand that has a greater resale value (Epiphone, Fender, Ibanez, Guild, Martin, Taylor, etc.). Washburn, for example, refers to its laminated time woods as Koa rather than layered Koa, as higher-end companies in the same price range would refer to their laminate guitars. This is done to make you believe you’re getting something you’re not. If you genuinely want solid wood, be sure the specs say solid Koa, solid spruce, solid mahogany, and so on.

    For this price, and even lower, there are a lot more solid-top options. That said, it’s a beautiful sounding guitar, but it won’t get much richer with time because it’s a laminate rather than solid Koa. If you truly like this guitar, go for it; it sounds great when plugged in and plays nicely. There’s just a lot of baggage that comes with it that you don’t want to deal with if you ever attempt to sell it.

    This guitar is one of my favorites. Take what I say with a grain of salt because I am a beginner musician. I’ve been playing for about three years and wanted to upgrade to an intermediate level guitar (I call it that due to the price). This is my second guitar. The beauty of this instrument drew my attention. It’s well-made and a pleasure to use. It has a wonderful sound and a smooth motion. I looked at a number of guitars before making my decision, and I’m pleased I did. However, there is one thing that worries me: reading about Washburn’s history leads you to assume that this instrument is produced in the United States. No, it’s a Chinese product.
