Great Quality and Playability

  • Summary: Fantastic package; You get everything, including a cd rom, but unlike some "all in one" packs, THIS guitar is surprisingly HIGH quality. Looking close at the solid spruce top reveals awesome wood; the back and sides are also beautiful, but the binding is sublime. It's obvioulsly not a concert or performance type guitar, but made for travel and the tone reflects that, but still it sounds great and the quality is unbelievable for a portable guitar.
  • Pros: Extremely Well Made, Fun To Play, Good Feel, Stays In Tune

  • Summary: I sold my Martin since I just wanted a small guitar for the couch and piddling around. This guitar fits the bill nicely. Did not sacrifice sound hardly at all. Has the feel of a larger guitar also. Well packaged from Amazon as usual. The guitar, Case and accessories of the highest quality.

totally pleased

  • Summary: I read all the reviews and I was concerned about the smell that previous owners talked about but I decided to take a chance and I am very glad I did, mine did not smell at all, it is possible they found the problem and corrected it, the instrument is great and does what it was built for. A travel guitar which is not a concert guitar and it is not like a regular size instrument, I totally recomend it for this purpose.

If your looking for a travel guitar =YOU FOUND IT HERE

  • Summary: Wow amazing sound for a small package, excellent workmanship. Looking for Martin i happened on this gem. Far superior in sound and comfort. Has a resonance that is UNBELIEVABLE. Action is very nice. You must try this before you spend the extra money thinking the dollar buys the sound. Kudos to Washburn sound engineering.

Washburn travel acoustic a great investment

appleman, amazon.com
2 January 2012
  • Summary: First off, kudos to Amazon for an amazing turn-around time in getting the guitar to me - from Illinois to Toronto in 24hrs. It arrive literally 15 mins before I left for the airport, so the little guitar made its inaugural to France. The guitar is *perfect* as a travel guitar. You definitely need to use to strap to play it comfortably, as the full size neck is heavier than the body and makes it a bit imbalanced if you try to play like a regular acoustic.

I thought I could take the smell

J. Allen "j allen", amazon.com

  • Summary: I thought I could take the smell. I couldn't. Otherwise it would be a decent deal and not bad sounding. The case is nice too, but everything smells like the Chinese rubber smell at Harbor Freight Tools. (sulfur?) I tried airing it out for a week with no success. If you have no sense of smell, get one.

Airplane Friendly Little Beast

Family of Four, amazon.com

  • Summary: I received Tiny Tim about four days before a trip to India. I lugged it through nine airports and a few rapid temperature changes. All-in-all a good deal, particularly if you can handle a little bit of puttering around to get things just right. I consider the money well spent. That said, it was still a treat to get home and pick up the FG730S. Pros: Stays reasonably tuned, even after 22 hours in the air. Decent sound. Mine came with D'Addario strings.

Ordered twice 1x Good 2X Not so good

Gman, amazon.com
12 December 2011
  • Summary: I ordered this guitar and it came wrapped up nicely, but without the strap. I called and they immediately sent a replacement which came in an old box that had been damaged and taped up and still did not have the strap. I know they had a problem in the past with the straps smelling funny. Maybe someone removed them and never put new one's back in. Also, the 2nd guitars woodwork was not nearly as nice as the 1st, and the case was coming apart in the "hinge" area.

Wow!

M. Turner "Mark T", amazon.com
2 December 2011
  • Summary: I'm very happy with this little guitar. It exceeded all of my expectations. It sounded much better than expected. A very pretty finish. Nice action. I figured it would come with horrible strings but it actually had D'Addario EXP strings. The case is great. Heck it came with a "how to play" CD, a strap, three picks, an extra bridge and a wrench to adjust the truss rod. I would've been happy with just the guitar at this price, so all of the extras are wonderful.
