It's a awesome instrument for the price. Body made out of solid wood, with spruce top and maple back and sides according to washburn themselves. Really nice sound, both acoustic or plugged on. The only bad things I have to say about it, its no resistent to falls at all, mine felt from a 2 inch high and broke a pice off, also the fact that it comes with a passive pickup system, so you need power to feed it. Even though, small thing comparing to the really nice instrument for a very inexpensive price. Really happy with my own.
