The Washburn Cumberland series of acoustic guitars feature solid Alaskan sitka spruce tops, flame maple back and sides and gold hardware. Maple has a brighter sound than mahogany or rosewood so these guitars tend to sound clearer and more articulate. This works out especially well for the larger bodied jumbo versions that might loose focus with a mellower sounding back and side wood.
• Jumbo cutaway body style

• Rosewood fingerboard and bridge with bone nut and saddle.

• Keep in mind that what you’re hearing is influenced by my playing style, the camcorder’s microphone, your computer speakers as well as the machinations of Youtube. One way to compensate for these factors is to compare the sound of the guitar in this video to other acoustic/ electric guitar reviews that I’ve done under the same circumstances.
