The WJ130EK is a jumbo style acoustic/electric guitar and features a Sitka spruce top with quarter sawn scalloped bracing and beautiful rosewood back and sides. An abalone rosette and cream multi-lam binding with rope purfling add a touch of class. The rosewood capped headstock features a pearl Washburn logo and the rosewood fingerboard features pearl snowflake inlays. A rosewood bridge comes with a bone compensated saddle which works in tandem with the bone nut to add power, sustain and clarity. Distressed Wilkinson brass butter bean tuners hearken back to a more elegant era. As with all instruments in the Vintage Series, the WJ130EK has a vintaged finish to mimic the look a 100 year old instrument might have.
The WJ130EK produces a big sound with plenty of bass. Mids are warm but lightly scooped with clear, bright highs. A passive piezo pickup is mounted under the bridge for live performance. A squared off vintage style hardshell case is included
The WJ130EK with case carries a Suggested Retail Price of $890.90.
