Title: N1/N2/N3/N4/N5/N6/N8... Your idea's for a N7...
Post by: nl_ffx on September 11, 2007, 09:06:53 AM
Hi Nuno fans [8D],

I was wondering how you guys would imagine a possible new Nuno guitar... lets call it the N7 [:)]

Ok, for the obvious, a N7 should have 7 strings, maple neck, floyd trem, the (not existing) Lawrence XL500-7 pickup and ofcourse a N7 sticker [:D]

Like to hear your idea's,

Washburn stay tuned to this one [;)]

I like the 7 sting idea. It really works. Let's also get Stephen out of retirement to build it and let's give it a 24 fret neck. It should also be made of Alder. Lastly I want one of those 2 in 1 knobs so I can control the volume of each pick individually. And...while we're at it lets give it a Spalted Maple top.

Nice Chaos [8D],

Yes lets bring Davis back to make our dream N7...
What about 'N' fretinlays and all black or gold hardware?
I think a monkey-paw grip is out of the question [:D] but a
multicolor swirl should be an option [:p]
I cannot wait to play the prototype !! (did you hear that at Washburn? [:D])

Greetings,
Dennis

Yeah, cool!!

I would like it to have

- the strat-style pickup selector of N5/N6
- Be able to split the neck pickup with the volume knob.
- Vintage white or Black with gold hardware.
- Swampash body (!!)
- N7 inlay on the ebony fretboard, but not on the 12th fret but on the 7th :o) No other inlays.
- I'd settle for 22 frets though, that's perfect.

What are you waiting for? Start building! [:)]

I'd say :
- 7 strings
- Old Padouk wood (not the one used on modern Paddies)
- Bill & Becky L500-XL 7
- Ebony fingerboard with Inlays like on the N4E-MNM
- 2 push-pull Volumes pots with coil split
- OFR
- a coupon for a few personnal lessons with Nuno [:D]
- Public Price : $500.0 [:o)]

Seems like Washburn now makes the N7 custom order... first one has gone to Nuno.

I wouldn't mind seeing an N7 deviating from the general N4 configuration in a few areas since adding another string really isn't too mind blowing, but I am speaking from my own personal preference and not from the general market.  I'm glad to see something different, and it is gaining interest at FMM.  My dream 7 string SEC version would be much different than the typical N7, so I'll keep my yap shut. [:)] Glad to see a 7 string version - no doubt!

Any chance of photos nick?  Did it have a floyd?

Ooooh, a 7-string Nuno!

I hope Nuno would play some shredding on this said prototype!

I'm still partial to 22-frets on this one. If it's gonna be a 24-fretter, I'd rather see a L'il '59 instead of a 'bucker for the neck.

Can't wait to see pics! Keep us updated!

The N7 is out there ! :)
Nuno played his N7 during American Idol with Rihanna

(For the vid, please check next post with a link.)

Cool thing is, it had the N7 sticker, did Nuno saw my original post  back in 2007 (see first pos(if so, a free N7 is appreciated)) ?
