|z9t||I think it is an good one. I can't agree more with yeschunk, its a good deal at $237, but the list price is too high. I like it though since I have not been playing guitar for a long time and try to pick it up again.|

I ended up getting this guitar and it's ok. I was drawn to it because it was all solid wood and the the draw of an all solid wood guitar is that it's supposed to sound better as it ages. Out of the box, it's a nice looking guitar, but you can see where the quality isn't as nice as some other guitars out there. I have a yamaha CG151S and I was hoping that this washburn was gonna be an upgrade because the yamaha is only a solid top, but I think I like my yamaha better. I bought the yamaha a few years ago for 300 and I gotta say out of the box, the yamaha sounds better and looks better (seems put together better). The solid top on my yamaha is definitely thicker than the solid top on the washburn.
The Washburn though it's solid wood all around, the back is not a smooth curve like my yamaha, you can feel a line down the center where the two pieces of of wood used to form the back have joined together. The action on the guitar is nice and the nice thing about it is that it has a truss rod, but as with any new guitar, you still need to set it up to make it sound nice. Comparing my two guitars side by side out of the box, the yamaha sounded better and had better resonance and the note carried longer even though the strings were older. I wanted to give the Washburn a chance, so I did what little I know about guitar setup, and replaced the strings with some Augustine strings (same as on the Yamaha) and replaced the plastic nut and saddle with a customized TUSQ one and set up the action. It definitely sounds better, but probably close to or only just equally as nice as my yamaha. It's definitely a good deal at $237 but is not worth the $650 that they list it for and DEFINITELY not the $1069 MSRP.

I bought the case (#MBTCGCL) from Wayfair.com and received it today via FedEx. I am very happy with it and had no issues. It fits the guitar perfectly snug without being tight.

The upside is that if this is a well engineered and built replica, my guitar is going to smash the shit out of guitars 2-3x its price range. He also accepts returns.
I own a small collection of audiophile headphones and have a discerning ear. I'll know if its shit.

Anyone who goes on a rant that long can't possibly be a scammer.. right?

|BazzX||As this is my first guitar, any suggestions / recommendations for a guitar stand?|

|FlamingDong||I might pull the trigger on this, but just concerned about how the guitar will look in real life. Also.. what about the back side? There's not that much info out there for this model.|

Lefty, Righty, does it matter??
It is worth mentioning that "left-hand" and "right-hand" when talking about a guitar are matters of preference rather than necessity. There are many right-handed professional musicians who prefer a left-handed guitar and vise versa. Guitars are not like guns. When shooting a rifle one needs to use their dominant eye for aiming purposes or else they will not be able to line up the sights. The same is not true for guitars. The reason right-handed and left-handed guitars are configured as they are today has to do with the history of guitar playing, specifically the era before picks.

* Lower bout width: 14.75"(SC) 15.75"(MBT)I hope you really enjoy your guitar and whatever case you end up with.

Thanks for the detailed response! That case looks nice (especially with the coupon code), but I already ordered a different one last night:
MBT Classical ABS Guitar Case on www.wayfair.com for $71.99 (links are not working for some reason??)
Would you recommend I cancel the order and purchase the one you mentioned instead? I am new to guitars and musical instruments in general so any advice is appreciated!
