Washburn D10S Acoustic Guitar Review

The Washburn D10S Acoustic Guitar is among the most best selling guitars on the globe. Not everything that is popular is great however so does this one live up to its popularity and get the status of been among the best acoustic guitars around.

It has a mahogany neck which has a fully bound rosewood fretboard and a nice natural finish (a black version is usually available). The tuners are grover styled and tend to be pretty good, if not amazing.

The sound is a beautiful deep, full tone which is designed for those that don't hopeful messing about with amps and electric and prefer to sit down and strum. It can also be fairly loud if the strings are strummed a tad bit harder. A lesser action would have made the guitar even better to play.

I reviewed the D10S shortly after testing the EG530SSC and however the Washburn has a terrific sound it doesn't quite match that in the Takamine guitar although within fairness the Takamine is more expensive.

The build of the Washburn is incredibly sturdy and is definitely designed to last, although it is probably fair to say that if you do become a more serious player you have got to upgrade.

For the price of the Washburn D10S you aren't going to come across many better guitars. The Alvarez RD8 is most likely the best alternative if this can be a most you can afford. If you have Somewhat more cash then others is a better option but the in terms of value for money this is still among the best acoustic guitars available.
Seagull are probably not the first brand of guitar that folks recognize but they generate great acoustic guitars, which is all that really matters, and I've read several claims that the, the Seagull S6 , is one of the best acoustic guitars for almost any beginner at under $500. Is that true though.

The highlights of the Seagull S6 acoustic guitar include a solid best with wild cherry again and sides, a rosewood fingerboard and bridge, tusq nut together with compensated saddle. It comes in a semi-gloss lacquer end.

As a guitar that is rated among the best acoustic guitars for beginners you would expect a great sound along with the Seagull S6 doesn't dissatisfy. The guitar produces a mellow, warm sound that for any price is astonishingly superior, even bettering that of many guitars that are twice the cost and made by more substantial names. It doesn't quite match the superior Taylor or Martin guitars but also for the price it will come closer than you would imagine.

Looks is where the Seagul S6 is slightly let down as it is not even close to the prettiest of acoustic guitars you would run into (at least in my view). That said it was created to last and if ones a beginner that wants to avoid having to upgrade within a years time then the S6 is a good choice as you will last you as long as you want it to.

To sum up if you're more keen on looks than quality involving sound and build than the Seagull S6 isn't to suit your needs but otherwise I recommend it. The Washburn D10S may be a little cheaper and more popular but for that minute extra I think the Seagull S6 is the better acoustic guitar to get a beginner.
