1978 John Hartford at Amazingrace – vintage Washburn Ad

Check out a Washburn. The challenge is in the first few moments when I’m working to capture the audience. The job’s a little easier when my instrument is working as hard as I am. Washburn makes it happen…at about half the price you’re probably thinking. It’s great working with a Washburn. Pictured: John Hartford at Amazingrace

1982 John Lodge of the Moody Blues on tour with Washburn guitar

Every guitar player needs feedback. But only from the audience!

A true natural acoustic sound, without feedback.

The new Festival acoustic electric guitar is intended to perform to the highest possible standards acoustically, and electrically without feedback, genuinely giving the best of both worlds. Hand finished in the prestigious Washburn factories, their-oval soundholes and florentine cutaways give a distinctive appearance, with the added ability to reach the higher register.

The Washburn Festival Series.
