Koa guitars have a special look and sound that exudes natural beauty. This Comfort Series guitar from Washburn features an all-koa cutaway body with beveled armrest, nicely crafted neck, and excellent Fishman electronics. The G55CE is great for the player who wants an awesome all-koa acoustic at an attainable price.

All-Koa Cutaway Body with Beveled Armrest
The G55CE is a great looking guitar, with sound to match. With such a rare tonewood, a guitar made from koa is pretty exotic. This Washburn has an all-koa Grand Auditorium body, including back, sides and soundboard, giving it a warm, crisp tone. It sports a Venetian cutaway so you can get your hand all the up to the 20th fret without any issues. Additionally, the beveled armrest on the top of the lower bout of the guitar makes it very comfortable to play, whether sitting or standing.

Nicely Crafted Neck
The neck of this guitar is cut from mahogany and completed with a satin finish. The fingerboard is a darker Ovangkol, sporting 20 frets. Washburn decided to forego inlays on the fingerboard to give the G55CE an increased air of elegance. Additionally, a bone nut separates the fretboard and headstock, which is crowned with 18:1 gear ratio tuners.

Excellent Fishman Electronics
The electronics on this all-koa guitar are from the ever-popular Fishman. The G55CE comes with a Fishman Presys+ 501T electronics system in it, with a tuner to boot. The LED display shows the current note and direction to adjust, making it really easy to quickly get back in tune. The Fishman Presys+501T also has a three-band EQ, as well as Notch, Brilliance, and Phase features.
