We are professional reviewers. We must not allow ourselves to be blinded by superficial factors, such as the glorious tobacco finish that evokes prear juke-joints, or psychological ones, like the stamp of renowned Chicago gear god Washburn on the headstock. Also, we must stop drooling.
Let our ears be the judge: the WD7S is big, bold and boomy, like the sound a 'classic' dreadnought makes in your head. When you're strumming with a pick, the sound is crystal and authoritative without being abrasive, and when you apply fingers, the output softens up in
convincing fashion, bringing in a really mellow warmth that revitalises riffs and implies this model is pretty expensive - which, of course, it isn't...MusicRadar's verdict:
"When it comes to big performance on a tight budget, this workhorse from the Windy City comes up trumps."
