Washburn Comfort Series Grand Auditorium Models Now Available

(PRESS RELEASE): Washburn Guitars announce immediate availability of the Washburn Comfort Series WCG18CE electro-acoustic guitar. The WCG18CE has a Grand Auditorium body shape and is perfect for any guitarist searching for a more comfortable, form-fitting, and stage-friendly instrument.

The Washburn Comfort Series acoustics are built to hug the body rather than dig into it. A contoured belly cut and top carve mean Washburn’s new series provide an enjoyable and comfortable playing experience whether you play standing up or sitting down.

Washburn’s new acoustics are also available in a Dreadnought body style, with or without electronics. Electro versions feature a single cutaway for easier upper fret access. All guitars are crafted out of a carved select spruce top and mahogany sides and back, as well as a mahogany neck. Equipped with die cast tuners and Fishman Isys+ 301T electronics, the Comfort Series guitars also features a rosewood fretboard and bridge with abalone rosette.
