N Series (Nuno Bettencourt) / Re: Bridge pickup recommendations for my N24

The BL pickup has a ceramic magnet.  These are known for being bright, and to some ears, harsh.
You could try a Seymour Duncan 59 Hybrid, which uses a ceramic magnet in half of the humbucker.  Some good YouTube videos on that pickup.
The Seymour Duncan website has sounds clips and EQ graphs of all the pickups.  It will help you hone in a little closer to what you are looking for.

The musical instruments are a very important one for giving an appropriate feel for the music . Oscar Schmidt is a musical instrument. It is part of one of the best guitar brands. It is having a wonderful structure and it is quite easy to play.   
If you have received a task to write a paper on the gender-related matter but cannot choose a topic, the following list might be of much use for you. The inequality essay topics are here to choose from, and it's not actually the bad idea. Gender inequality is a popular topic which professors often raise in the discussion lectures. It's a good ideas for the discussions in the discussion club or perhaps, speaking clubs too.

Time management is a very important issue in my life. I need to be working on a project of mine, but there's this website where I'm spending most of my time. Don't get me wrong, I'm playing, having fun and making a little bit of money, but I'd rather spend my time working. So there's that.

N Series (Nuno Bettencourt) / Looking for a maple top N4

I am looking for a maple top N4. Feel free to contact me if you have one for sale with price and pictures.
A friend's relatively new Washburn acoustic suffered a nasty neck break and his brother has since tried to repair it with some sort of glue or filler, not entirely sure what it was.

As a result the headstock and neck will no longer sit flush due to the excess glue/substance. I've tried to remove it with some acetone and isopropyl alcohol, but it hasn't done much to shift it

Is it a complete write-off or is there some way to salvage this otherwise pristine guitar? Any advice would be most welcome, thanks.

Over the years, the "Washburn" name has been applied to instruments produced by literally a couple dozen different factories. Though Japan instituted rules meant to standardize serial numbers, elsewhere the format can vary widely. There are examples of Washburn numbers where any date interpretation would be impossible.

You're correct that serial numbers are generally on paper labels beneath the soundhole. Sometimes they fall off with time, or someone found it displeasing & took it off. IME, some non-Washburn Japanese guitars from the '70s & '80s never had a paper label (apparently the headstock logo was enough), so I suppose it's possible. Generally, I'm wary of numbers written (or rubberstamped) on the wood, as usually these are tracking numbers that don't indicate date or build order or any such thing.

Off to Blue Book. The D-25S is a Southern jumbo, not a dreadnought, offered 1985-2000. If it's got a spruce top, it's 1994 or earlier (replaced by cedar from that year onward). Given your number, it's possible that indicates 1986; if valid, the next two digits should be month, and the final digits is that instrument's actual serial-order number... so that'd be guitar #1,012 for the month of April 1986. Without a paper label, I'm not totally confient, but that's the guess.

Thanks, Tony! It does have a spruce top, and I'd say 1986 is a pretty good guess. It was in near-mint condition when I bought it in the summer/fall of 1987. Thank you, again, for chiming in.

9301192 is stamped on the end block inside the body, right above D-28S/N  - It is a D28 that I bought new in '95 and made in Taiwan.

Figure it was built Jan 1993, guitar #192.......?
