Guitar Care, Repair, Modification & Lutherie / Buzz Feiten Intonation
« on: January 25, 2015, 09:13:00 AM »
I have recently purchased a 2nd Hand Washburn guitar which has the Buzz Feiten tuning system.

I have given the guitar a full setup including lighter gauge strings which I have tuned down a half step, added a spring to the reverse of the trem, adjusted the claw to get the floyd floating parallel to the body, adjusted the action slightly and am now ready to adjust the intonation however I am having a lot of trouble with this as apparently you need a tuner which has the BFTS intonation presets as they are completely different to the tuning presets.

I have been searching around for hours now and have found only one tuner which is available in the UK and costs £140 (Peterson Stomp Classic) however I am extremely reluctant to pay out that much for a tuner considering this will be it's only use

I have looked at various apps for android and apple devices but there are only a couple which have the BFTS presets for tuning and not intonation.

I normally just use a Korg Pitchhawk clip on tuner or an android app called waves for tuning and have tuned the guitar according to the instructions on the BF page about tuning each string to an E note. The app has a variety of temperaments predefined or the option to define your own if that can be used to input the offsets?

Any other help or suggestions would be fantastic!!

Many Thanks


N Series (Nuno Bettencourt) / N24-F

Hi all!

New to the forum but I have been following for many years and have had a good long read through before posting this!

I live in the UK where it is very difficult to find anything except N2's and N4's. I already have an N2 and an N4 is way out of my price range just now.

However I have recently been offered an N24... all I knew of this model was that it wasn't available in the UK and the only ones I could find had this really nasty looking "relic" finish.

The one I have been offered however is a dark grey with a flamed maple which looks really good!

Does anyone know where I can find some specs for this one? I know the aged N24's have an agathice body, maple neck and rosewood board, SEC and Bill Lawrence USA l500 and washburn neck p/u. This one looks like it meets all of those I just cannot find out about this flamed top version!

When were they out? Is the flamed top a rare one? How long was it available?

many thanks in advance for any help!
