Washburn designed the Festival series to address the needs of the performing musician and it has succeeded for over 25 years. The Festival series was the standard acoustic/electric guitar seen on MTV's "Unplugged" series and has since become one of the best selling and most copied guitars on the market. A large body teamed up with quality electronics, hardware, and fine woods allows the pristine, crystaline highs to blend perfectly with a full, well rounded low end.
The Washburn EA15ITB is exceptionally fun to play. The neck has a comfortable feel, and making it easier to get through complicated chord changes and intricate fingerwork. With a gorgeous woodsy undertone and sparkling overtones, the EA15ITB is suited for strumming or fingerstyle. The flamed maple top looks incredible, and is certain to draw attention any time you pick it up. This guitar gives a surprising amount of bang for the buck. At under $250, the EA15ITB looks and sounds like guitars that cost 2x or even 3x as much. Perfect for beginners, intermediate players, or anyone looking to add a little variety to their collection.
