Don’t ask me why… I just wanted to know. What is the best selling acoustic guitar in the world? Spend a little time with Google and the answer is clear.
The Washburn D10S outsells every other acoustic guitar. And it is under $500.00! Actually under $400.00! OK… would you believe under $300.00? It’s True!
Most guitar players have heard of Washburn Guitars. They are Chicago-based guitar builders since 1883… just a few blocks from Maxwell Street, the hotbed origin of Delta Blues… Their web site says it best: “Washburn guitars were embraced as the very embodiment and reflective spirit of the hard-working musicians who played them as well as the employees who designed and crafted them.”
So what makes the #1 Acoustic Guitar the #1 Acoustic Guitar? The highest quality? The lowest price? The most artist endorsements? The greatest production? The most compelling advertising? Actually, it’s a combination of a lot of things. Check this out:
The Washburn D10S has professional features like a solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides and a mahogany neck, a rosewood fingerboard and bridge and chrome die-cast Grover style tuners. You know, the kind of specs you find on guitars with names that start with “G”, “M” and “T”. They are also the kind of features that give an acoustic guitar fantastic tonal quality.
I remember my first guitar (it was NOT a Washburn D10S). It was hard to play. The action was high. It would not stay in tune. It sounded terrible. I almost quit playing…. Let’s face it, quality guitars are easier to play, and with the Washburn D10S, “quality” does not have to translate into “expensive”. For what I spent on my first guitar… just a few dollars more and I could have had one of these. I could have had the best-selling acoustic guitar in the world!
