N Series (Nuno Bettencourt) / N4 Volume knob question..
« on: December 19, 2010, 08:03:45 PM »
I was wondering if one of you N4 owners could chime in.  I had a guy replace the original pickups back in that were taken out.  But now I'm getting a loud buzz through my foot petal when the volume is all the way down and I take my hands off the strings. It's annoying! I still have to experiment to see if it's the guitar or what.

My question is, when I turn the volume all the way down it dosen't do hardly anything until I get right to the end, and then it nearly instantly shuts off. Really no noticable tapering off of sound, but it seems to ever so slightly roll off the gain.

Is it supposed to be like that??

Any imput would be appreciated..

Thanks!

N Series (Nuno Bettencourt) / N4 neck pickup question...
« on: February 16, 2010, 04:15:07 AM »
Hi!  Does anybody know the specs on the Seymour Duncan 59' neck pickup for the n4?  I'm trying to put it back to original, and don't have the original pickup..  I want it to be exactly stock again.

Is it F spaced?

Does it have 2 wires or 4?

Thanks, Kevin

Couple of years ago I saw a washburn brocure that had the NX6's.  They also had the NX6TM made out of wood from the bottom of lake superior.  Any idea where I can get one of these?  I've been searching, but only find them listed in Japan, and I think they are sold out.  They are way cool and I'd like to get one with a floyd rose, although that would probably be hard to find.  thanks, Kevin

Even with the laminate top it still looks like a good deal.  The laminates help fight feedback so I've heard.  Someone should scoop up on this since I can't afford it at the moment.

General Discussion on Washburn Electric Guitars / Washburn MG74 pickups?
« on: January 29, 2006, 12:47:40 PM »
What type of pickups does the Washburn MG74 Mercury series guitar have? I'm looking at the archives, and I can't really tell.  It looks like they may be Duncans, but maybe not.  Anybody know?  And how is the 800s trem compared to a Shallar Floyd and 600s trem?  I assume it's pretty good, but have never tried one before. Thanks in advance!

Show Us Your Washburn / Pair O' Wings

An Eagle and a Falcon. I don't own the Falcon anymore, but still have the Eagle. These are some of the first and best sounding Washburn electrics.

For any of you out there who are in the market for a new Washburn NV guitar, WATCH OUT!  Washburn has changed the specs on these.  They are not made in the USA custom shop as claimed by most dealers, they are Korean made.  And they are not solid top, they are laminite. They used to be made in the USA custom shop, but dealers are taking advantage of this and falsely advertising them as such. Either that or Washburn has failed to inform them. I wish Washburn would simply re-name the model so that people could tell the difference.  They still seem to be excellent guitars, but just don't get one thinking that it's going to be Solid USA custom shop, cause it most likely won't be.

General Discussion on Washburn Electric Guitars / MG70 Mercury series
« on: December 11, 2005, 01:23:59 AM »
Are these guitars any good?  Blue flame maple top with black headstock and MG70 on truss rod cover.  Gold hardware as well with case Xlnt cond. $250. Is this a good deal?  What kind of trem does it have? Is it a real floyd?  Thanks!

I was in the music store the other day and the luthier at the store commented about how washburn bridges, particularly the butterfly bridges come up.  I didn't think much about it until I was talking to yet another guy at a pawn shop and he too said that he has experienced some washburn bridges that come up.  I got home and noticed that I could actally slide a dollar bill under a bit of the bottom half of my bridge.  Has anybody else had any experience with this problem?  I'm just curious how much of a hassle it would be to get it fixed and at what cost.  I don't want him overcharging me by making me think that it's a major project when really it might not be. I have yet to get an estimite, but I figured I would try here first.  So if anybody has any knowlege about this problem, please let me know.  Thanks!

Is anyone out there familiar with the WN60 classical guitar?  My main question is, is it a solid top?[?]

General Discussion on Washburn Electric Guitars / Nuno's blue guitar
« on: October 26, 2005, 01:54:17 PM »
I remember back in the mid to late 90's Nuno played a baby blue Washburn that looked like a Les Paul with the top rounded part looking sorta pointy.  Anybody know what model this guitar is?  It seemed like they were there one day and then gone the next, and I haven't seen one since.
