A Sam Ash Exclusive! The Washburn EA9B Acoustic Electric Guitar is a jumbo style acoustic-electric that’s perfect for any performance setting.

Available Exclusively at Sam Ash, the Washburn EA9B Acoustic Electric Guitar is a jumbo style acoustic-electric with a Florentine cutaway for extended upper fret access. The body features a laminated spruce top dressed in an elegant black finish with white binding on the front and back. A white rosette beautifully compliments the black finish.

    When I first picked it up I was amazed at how well it stayed in tune and the action was low right out of the box. The pickup sounds fantastic through the fishman solo stick. I recommend this!

      The Washburn EA9B is a great guitar for any beginner or seasoned guitarist looking for something they can take someplace without worrying. Unique shape for an acoustic but still retains acoustic properties. Also comes with electronics so you can play out with this guitar very easily. Just plug in and go! Stop by your local Sam Ash Music to check one out!

        This is a great entry level acoustic electric guitar. At $199, it is a fantastic value. The jumbo body style provides a full tone and strong volume when played acoustic. The electronics are solid, and sound very good. Having the Florentine cutaway is a great feature as it allows easy access to the upper frets.

        At this price point, it would be hard to find an acoustic electric that provides a similar level of quality.

        For $200 you cant beat this guitar! Its got above decent quality and very well built. I bought it in an emergency situation where it was 2 hours to my gig and the airport lost my main baby, so in the meantime I picked this guy up with whatever little money I had and boy did it get the job done. I ended up keeping it and using it for alot of my rehearsal and jam sessions so that I wouldnt wear out my main guitars so quick and it has definitly given me the bang for the buck. I recommend this to all touring and jamming guitarists who need a substitute for practice gigs so as not to put your higher end guitars under the stress caused by travel.

          This is a really great, inexpensive guitar. The Florentine cutaway looks great and allows me to access even more of my guitar. The electronics have a great, clear sound that reproduce the guitars tone perfectly. This is a great guitar for someone who is looking for a great sound with electronics, without having to dig to deep into the wallet. Overall a great value, looks and sound!

              Yamaha guitars always play and feel very nice, for a thinner body acoustic this guitar has a rich, full sound to it and the action was perfect. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a great first acoustic-electric!

                  I teach guitar at Sam Ash in Canoga Park, and this is one of my go to's when parents ask where to start. It's got a thin body and neck, making it more accessible to smaller students than a full sized dreadnaught, but it's not a smaller scale guitar they're just going to discard when they get bigger. It's also black, which kids seem to prefer over natural woods. I've come around in my old age, but when I was 10 years old, I used to think you were lame if your guitar "had wood on it."

                    When you plug this guitar in, the Fishman pickup really makes it shine for live and recording applications. The unique cutaway shape makes it a good option for acoustic lead guitar, too. Solid guitar for the money!
