"The cheapest guitar in our round up at just £349, the Washburn WL020S came out on top in a double-head review with its dreadnought sibling thanks to its more controllable tone”.

Acoustic GOY WLO20S 560

Part of the new Woodline series, the elegant Washburn WLO20S has the perfect balance of musicality and affordability.  A perfect songwriting or finger-style tool this Orchestra shaped acoustic is unbelievably resonant with incredible sustain. It is featured in Acoustic magazine’s annual roundup of the year’s best gear.

"At this price. Washburn is clearly targeting beginners or first-upgraders, and they've done a great job providing an instrument here that will suit both. Though it lacks electrics, it'll perform admirably miked up at a small gig or open mic nights”.

"The WL020S is significantly more approachable on a physical level [compared to its dreadnought sibling]. It's above average style wise, and in the top bracket of quality for the money." 

The full feature can be found in the January 2017 issue of Acoustic magazine on sale now.  The Washburn WLO20S is also available now at £349 RRP inc VAT.
