Absolutely beautiful electro acoustic guitar here priced at £349 delivered. This one is from Washburn's comfort series, where the design on the body has been altered to better accommodate your right arm as you strum. It's by no means something that anyone really needs, but aesthetically it looks really nice and it likely would feel nice to play. Typically you'd see this kind of thing on higher end instruments, such as the Taylor 914CE.
Alverez also has a Masterworks Elite model (MDA70WCEARSHB) with one on too, so they do appear with the bevelled edges on the lower end, they're just not that common.
£349 for the spec is decent. The solid top, bone nut and Fishman electronics are all nice features here. The saddle is probably made from bone too, although it's not mentioned, even on the Washburn site. So keep that in mind when buying. It could be plastic, although usually we see a bone nut paired with a bone saddle... Because that makes sense, really.

Washburn’s Comfort Series combine looks and ergonomics to deliver the ultimate player-friendly guitars. With their armrest bevel, these guitars hug the body rather than digging into it and provide a comfortable playing experience whether you’re sitting or standing.
The G20SCE is a Grand Auditorium style acoustic/electric guitar that features a book matched solid Sitka spruce top whose tone will improve with age, supported by Quarter Sawn Scalloped Sitka Spruce bracing, Pau Ferro back and sides, a cutaway for superior upper fret access and premium Fishman Presys II 301T electronics for natural amplified acoustic tone. The unique feature of this model is the mahogany ergonomic armrest bevel binding on the lower bout that provides the comfort the series gets its name from by removing the harsh angle that would normally cut into your forearm. Other features are the mahogany neck with Ovangkol fingerboard and bridge.
The G20SCE is a fantastic sounding acoustic guitar on its own but the addition of premium Fishman electronics makes for an outstanding stage performance guitar. The Fishman® Presys II 301T is an integrated tuner/preamp system for versatile amplified tonal shaping.
