I have the same exact guitar.  When I saw it pop up for sale locally, I jumped on it. Super sweet guitar! Mine has the mahogany body like yours. You could go pro with just this guitar lol.

N Series (Nuno Bettencourt) / Re: NX6 ???
« on: February 04, 2017, 04:21:18 PM »
Those NX6 guitars were only made for a couple years and they seem to vary from guitar to guitar. Most were hard tails but a few had floyds. Most had no fret markers but a few had them.. same with the pickup rings. Most didn't have them.  I THINK the standard pickups were custom custom bridge and 59' neck. I seem to remember one with a full shred bridge as well as the wood variants (paduak, alder, maple ect). Plus Jon Donais was using them and had them outfitted with emg at the time if I remember correctly, so it would not surprise me if a few had emgs.

Show Us Your Washburn / Re: "NEW" NOS USA MG 112 under construction
« on: August 14, 2016, 06:47:20 PM »
Hi Acension, I recently came across one of these in really nice condition and snatched it. Was told it was a  mg124 but I guess mg112?  Had no idea what it was, only that it was a made in usa washburn mg.  Never have seen one like it other than yours.   It has a 94 serial number if that is of any interest. I'm curious to see how your project comes out. This one is a dark Burgundy color.

N Series (Nuno Bettencourt) / Re: Looking for an NX6

All you can do is remain alert. One sold off Reverb.com five weeks ago for $600 + $100.

The more-common NX3 (Rose tail) goes for about half that.

If you should spot an NX6TM, please tell us what the price is -- they're VERY difficult to gain any info on! This ad has been around awhile, & 350,000 yen seems a bit crazy...

I managed to cquire one of these a couple years back. With the Schaller tremolo.  In the guy's ad he shows a COA that says 1 of 3.  His is a 2004. Mine is a 2003 and my COA days 1 of 30. I took that to mean 1 of 30 total- both hardtails and tremolo versions together. I have counted more than 3.  Though. Mine, his, one on youtube, and a couple more in pics on the net. So there is more than 3 out there with floyds. I'm going to guess like 10 or so.  Some have dot inlays, others don't. US market vs Japanese market? Maybe there were 3 made without dot inlays? Who knows.  But most likely I don't think there are more than 10 out there total with floyds on them.

General Discussion on Washburn Electric Guitars / Re: Lost forest Idol
« on: March 09, 2016, 06:34:27 PM »
Essentially the same thing. Lost forest models are the 500+ year old timeless timber maple recovered from the bottom of lake superior. These days I believe there is more govt red tape involved with recovering them, and permits are required, taxes, fees, yadda, ect ect.. There are some other timeless timber logs being recovered now from other parts of the world. But a lot of it ts for CEO's desks and the like.

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

Show Us Your Washburn / Washburn Falcon
« on: September 03, 2007, 01:00:57 PM »
If you go to youtube and type in 'John Fogerty' you will see several clips of him using the falcon rosewood back in the 80's. The first one I think is a tribute to Roy Orbison and the other is Up Around The Bend He must be using the spit coils to get that twangy sound.

It looks like one of the re-issues from the 90's and not a 82 like he said.  Still nice I guess.

Hey Darky444, I've seen the highest end eagles go for $1000 or so in good shape, but most go for anywhere between $500-$800.  The falcons in good shape fetch about $400-$700.  I imagine yours being a raven might fetch anywhere between $300-$600. It also depends on what someone is willing to spend(you never know) If you list it, include Falcon, Hawk, Eagle in the title so if you type in any of those in the search engine, it will bring up yours too, since they are closely related and may spark an interest in those searching for Falcons, hawks, or eagles. It is a very nice guitar, so you want as many people to see it as possible.  Good luck with your sale, and it's too bad your selling, because with good some seymour duncans pickups, these sound as good as the best guitars out there.

I started wiping my strings with a little lemon oil after each use a while back and now my strings last easily twice as long.  Can't believe I never did that before. I also use fast fret as well. It seems to work as good as lemon oil. What a good product!
