N Series (Nuno Bettencourt) / Nx6 vs N4
« on: February 21, 2014, 01:14:43 AM »
Hello all

I've been looking for an N4 for a while but several things kept me from buying the couple ones I found. A Padauk Nx6 has appeared "locally" but at a significant driving distance so I'm inclined to go for it. I've always loved the N4 but since I'm not a tremolo player the Nx6 seems more of what I would enjoy playing.
I would like to know if any one can share some of their appreciations about the neck of the Nx6 and its playability, feel, action, compared to the N4. I'm not crazy about thin necks however I do favor a slimmer neck over thicker ones.
How does the Padauk sound compared to alder or swamp ash?

Also, any idea on what a reasonable price would be for these? I know they usually have sold for less than $1000 although I saw one gone for 1200 on ebay last year.


X Series / X50PROE

Anyone have information about this guitar?  What is different with the more commonly known X50PROFE?

X Series / X50-PROFE real maple top?
« on: April 16, 2013, 09:13:57 AM »

A couple of days ago I was just wondering about the tops of these guitars, as I read on some specs, the newer models that have a maple "top" is in fact a "veneer top" so I decided to email Washburn asking for that and also asking for the active pickups that came with the X50AJD, which are not EMG as all the X50PROFE have.

I received an email saying that ALL X50 were made with a maple veneer, I was surprised as the specs of these guitars on Washburn catalogues clearly say "maple top", and certainly a guitar with maple veneer was in a lower price range that these guitars were at the moment they came out.

Anyway, I took out the EMG's of my X50PROFE to check the top but the cavities are painted black so I can't really see where the 2 woods are supposed to meet.
On the contrary, on the X50AJD you can see the maple top union on the side of the guitar just under the binding and also in the control cavity, in the hole where the jack is you can clearly see 2 woods.

Also, they told me the standard X50's came with WB630 pickups but as far as I know these are not active and the AJD does have active humbuckers but they are not EMG.
By the way, the X50PROFE is from 2006 and the AJD is from 2004, and I've never seen in a catalogue and it seems to be pretty rare.

Does anyone know if in fact the X50PROFE's have a real maple top or just a maple veneer?
Did I get the wrong information about the tops and the humbuckers from Washburn thinking that I was asking for the newer models?

Thanks for your comments replies!

N Series (Nuno Bettencourt) / N4 with 2 knobs?
« on: April 01, 2013, 10:01:29 AM »
Hi all,

I just fund an N4 for sale locally and I'm just wondering about it.
I'm requesting some more photos and the serial number to properly identify it but I have some doubts already.

Claimed to be bough in 1991.
It has a Khaller tremolo but the locking nut doesn't look like the ones I've seen on early davies, you know with that "extra" piece between the nut and the peghead, this one looks like a regular floyd rose tremolo nut which is only the nut (I hope this makes sense).
It also has a Seymour duncan instead of the BL (but the mounting ring looks like the BL).
It has 2 knobs  (?)

When I have more photos of the guitar it will become more apparent if it's a davies which it shuold as it is from 1991 correct?
I also should see that barrel jack, the back plate with no routing just mounted on the surface, and of course the rolled stephen's cutaway neck/fretboard joint.

My main concerns are the 2 knobs and the different locking nut.
Can anyone shed some light on this?


X Series / X50AJD good deal?

Hi friends,

General Discussion on Washburn Electric Guitars / SBF-80 serial number?
« on: February 13, 2013, 01:50:48 AM »
Hi all,

I got offered a Washburn SBF-80 in quite good shape but with a dent on the back. Plays well and sounds good. The only strange thing about the guitar is that there is no serial number on it. Does anybody know why is this and/or how can I get the serial number of that guitar? Perhaps I'm looking at the wrong spot for the SN.


N Series (Nuno Bettencourt) / Washburn N6
« on: January 22, 2013, 12:11:34 PM »
Hi all,

In my attempt to acquire an N4 I just recently found a Davies but didn't succeed in getting it and I know found an N6 for $400+shipping.
Maple neck/rosewood fretboard. I'm assuming alder body. X500L bridge (Bill Lawrence USA)

Since I don't know much about these N6, any input, comments or recommendations are greatly appreciated.

I'm yet to know the serial number of the guitar as this will tell me more about it.

Prompt replies are very welcome as I need to make a decision in the next 2 days.

Thank you very much to everyone!

X Series / X50PROFE Korea vs Indonesia?
« on: January 17, 2013, 01:58:27 AM »

I've been researching on internet and reading several comments about these guitars on this forum and I still have a question about the quality of the different versions. Is there a real difference between the Indonesia made and the Korea made X50PROFE?

I found 2 of these from different years and each from different country of manufacture and I would like opinions on which would be the best option.
Both are the same model but they only differ in color. One is natural finish and the other one is see through black.

I hope somebody can shed some light on the difference in quality of these guitars.

Thank you!!
