The Design Team at Washburn wanted to build an instrument with appointments of elegant design and taste, combined with premium sound and exceptional comfort of playability. Each Bella Tono model features Washburn’s Studio body shape. This shape was carefully designed specifically to retain the best attributes of a full-sized body, while delivering the best attributes of a smaller body. Petite in dimension, these bodies deliver a rich and full voice with?clarity and projection while retaining the tight focus of a smaller body. This refined body is matched up with a comfortable, modern neck profile and a long list of visually striking upgrades resulting in a collection of guitars that you will love.
