Customer Reviews

Big Sound From a Little Guitar5 I normally play an Ovation acoustic and was accustomed to that projected sound afforded by the rounded back. As you can Imagine I was somewhat skeptical when I looked at the ROVER. This guitar has EXCELLENT sound that I absolutely did not expect. I compared this guitar to the martin backpacker(btw, I love Martin Guitars) and not only is the sound better but the action is unbelievable. All for under $200.00. This is a great buy especially at this price. I can't put this guitar down! Nice Price - An Overall Nice Deal4 I've played Washburn's since I started and currently own 4 of them so was pretty comfortable ordering this without playing it first. It's a very playable guitar that took virtually no set up (minor truss rod adjustment) with nice action. The tone gets a little getting used to - a bit like a ukelele from the player position but when someone across from me was playing it I was surprised over the projection and better than anticipated richness (given it's size). Better than the Martin backpacker in that it's a more conventional shape and easier to play - and, I think, sounds fuller. Great travel case - it would take a lot to do some damage - and nice accessory package. Came very close to giving it 5 stars - particularly for the price. Don't think you could do better. Extraordinary Value5 I have to believe that this guitar is a loss leader for Washburn. The fit and finish are excellent but most importantly the neck setup is the best I have ever seen on a new guitar out-of-the-box at any price. After playing it for one day I had no choice but to take my Martin in for a neck setup to match it, or at least come close -- cost me $600. A travel guitar needs to have an excellent case and this one does. It's made to fit in the overhead but I would have no qualms about shipping this in the belly of the beast. The neck and head stock get very good support in this case. Within hours of receiving this guitar I installed a strap button on the heel, this is essential for holding the guitar and Washburn would do well to make this a standard feature.
