Berkeley, CA (August 23, 2012) – Washburn Guitars introduces the EA40SCE acoustic/electric guitar. Designed for stage performance, the EA40SCE is based on the original, feedback resistant, thinline Festival Series body style. 

The EA40SCE is a thin jumbo style acoustic/electric guitar with a Florentine cutaway for extended upper fret access. The guitar features a book matched solid Alaskan Sitka spruce top with quarter sawn scalloped bracing and stunning flame maple back and sides. A smooth satin finished maple neck offers the utmost playing comfort and is topped with a rosewood fingerboard which matches the rosewood bridge.  The bound flame maple ca pped headstock features a pearl inlaid Washburn logo and stylized W as well as elegant gold Washburn die cast tuners. The unique rosette features mahogany with hinge motifs of maple.

The EA40SCE is well suited to live performance due to its feedback reducing thin body and features Fishman Presys+ electronics for superb natural sounding amplified tone. The Presys+ includes a built in tuner and notch and phase controls further reduce the possibilities of feedback. 

The EA40SCE carries a Suggested Retail Price of $890.90.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.

A blind horse wouldn’t be impressed, but this beautiful, double-horned instrument with one-of-a-kind engravings helped make luthier Tony Zemaitis famous.

Though they never reached the commercial success of some of their peers, the Faces have no doubt earned a place as one of the seminal rock ’n’ roll bands of the late ’60s and early ’70s. Combining influences as varied as instrumental funk à la the Meters, traditional folk music, and a heavy dose of rhythm and blues, the Faces brand of rock ’n’ roll can be heard in some way or another in the music of countless bands that followed.
