Washburn has launched the Comfort Series WCG18CE electro-acoustic guitar range in the UK. 

Available through Sound Technology, the WCG18CE has a Grand Auditorium body shape and is designed to be a more comfortable, form-fitting, and stage-friendly instrument. The Washburn Comfort Series acoustics are built to hug the body rather than dig into it with a contoured belly cut and top carve.

They are also available in a Dreadnought body style, with or without electronics. Electro versions feature a single cutaway for easier upper fret access. All guitars are crafted out of a carved select spruce top and mahogany sides and back, as well as a mahogany neck. Equipped with die cast tuners and Fishman Isys+ 301T electronics, the guitars also feature a rosewood fretboard and bridge with abalone rosette.
