2010 Washburn D46SCE/12 12-String Acoustic/Electric Dreadnought Guitar

I'm impressed with this guitar -- it looks great, has a very quick and comfortable feel after adjustments, and has a great, chimey, big sound. Style-wise it reminds me of a mixmash of '90s Takamine cues and '80s Japanese-made Washburn cues. The greeny-blue purfling and multicolor backstrip combined with the fancy quilted ash back and sides give it a "luthier-built" look at a glance. It's interesting.

Jose did most of the work on this, though I helped him with the string-ramping and saddle tweaks. It's playing spot-on and is ready to go.

Repairs included: a fret level/dress, string ramping at the bridge, minor compensation adjustments to the saddle, setup.

Condition notes: it's very clean with only light usewear throughout -- small scratches, nicks, or dings may be there but I didn't notice anything while I was shooting photos. The saddle is on the low side but it does have adjustment room, still, and we've added string ramps to the bridge so the rear-loading strings still have good back-angle on the saddle. I can't stress how important that is on 12-strings and how so few manufacturers bother to do it...

It comes with: a nice hard case. It has an onboard pickup.
