2001 N2 Series ?? Can anyone help with my guitars history
« on: August 30, 2013, 09:49:14 PM »
I have a near mint condition Washburn N2, Serial Number 0120501
Other than my belief that it is a 2001 Model ??? I know nothing about the origins of where it was made.
It has N2 Printed on the Headstock just above the open truss rod access (no cover) and Nuno printed on the upper cutaway. The tuners have Washburn on them and not Grover.
It has a two knob ( one tone and one coil tapped volume ) set up and a 3 position PUP selector between them.
It has a Washburn 600s Floyd and two Washburn PUPs
I was fairly certain that I actually used the guitar when I played at a 2000 Millennium Gig in which case it must be a 91 model. I swapped an Ibanez Roadster Series Guitar with the Guitarist in my brothers band, they played funky type stuff and we played rock/metal. It has served me well and still gets gigged once in a while. Always remains perfectly in tune and has a lovely low action.
Would be grateful if anyone could help me out here.

Not to hijack your thread but I have what seems to be an early N2 that I'm trying to learn about.  What caught my attention in your post was the serial number.

My serial number is 0120526


Mine has two pots; a volume, and a tone which is push/pull for coil tapping.  There is also a three position pickup selector (blade style).  Does yours have any of the same features?

those 90's N2 has MoJo but a too wide neck for my taste... wider than other N2s
2xN2 '91-N2 '93-N3 custom-N4 Davies-N61-P290-D56-WM24-WT24V-Davies Tele and more Washburns...
