For sale, a very early USA Washburn N4 Nuno Bettencourt signature model. It is in the (also rare for N4s) black finish. This is from Dec 1991 (serial 91120036), so it is considered a transitional model for N4 fans. Features a Schaller Floyd, Duncan 59 neck and Lawrence L500 bridge pickups, alder body and the Stephen’s Extended Cutaway (of course). Even though this guitar is almost 20 years old, the neck and frets are in GREAT shape- this guitar was certainly not played hard in that time. While I’m not the original owner, the fret’s condition suggest it went untouched for awhile in there!
Being 18 years old, it is not in perfect collector’s condition, but not abused either. A few chips/dings (that have been touched up), a scratch by the selector switch, and a missing trem backplate... That’s about it for the “bad.” Again, not a collector's piece, but one heck of a player.
So it is a great choice for someone looking to get into a N4 for cheap- $825 shipped and Paypal’d in a Roadrunner hardshell case. I don’t think you’ll find a better N4 deal right now, especially for one of this vintage in this finish. The perfect guitar to play all those Rihanna tunes!
I am newer on here (only done 2 transactions on the forum- all positive), but have 8+ years of positive transactions on eBay and jemsite, much of that being higher end guitar stuff.
