New condition

There aren’t many guitarists on this big blue marble of ours that come close to the versatility of Nuno Bettencourt. Always changing, forever inventing technical string skipping two hand tapping one minute, classical inspired chops the next, blues, jazz you name it he throws it all together and comes up with a unique style that’s unmistakably 100% Nuno. To keep up with his forever changing styles Nuno and Washburn created the N-series, the Nuno Bettencourt sig. model first released in 1990. Like the first N-series the new models (N-5,N-6) are a one of a kind guitars. One of the most outstanding features is the ultra smooth, fast, unfinished neck and the Stephen’s Extended Cutaway gives you more access than any guitar on the market (seriously King Kong’s hand could get access!), the body is light, the pick-ups are quality sounding, a very comfortable guitar and the Buzz Feiten Tuning System giving incredible intonation the whole of the fret board (Detailed info. from Buzz Feiten .com). Like all the U.S.A N-series they are hand built in the Washburn Custom Shop, The N-5 Importstrings have is also signed authenticated with pics of Nuno signing it! a rare opportunity for any Extreme or Nuno fans. So whether you want to smoke up the fret board or leisurely blues away this guitar will do both for you.

Additional Fact: Washburn are one of the oldest guitar companies in the U.S.A and have been hand crafting their guitars since 1883 and really do take pride in that, keeping to the tradition that quality woods and quality craftsmanship with hands on experience give you a quality instrument.
