N Series (Nuno Bettencourt) / Help with truss wrench size
« on: April 25, 2012, 07:22:30 PM »
Dear all,

Need help with the size of the truss rod allen key needed for my N4 paddy.

I've lost the allen key for my N4. I always thought all N series use the same key until  I tried to use the allen key from my N7 paddy and it seems to be smaller than the one in my N4. Does anyone know what size N4 allen key should be?

I don't want to remove the neck pickup from the N4 to use a regular key at this point.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.


N Series (Nuno Bettencourt) / Japanese N4
« on: March 08, 2011, 11:02:30 AM »
Hi all,

New to the forum. I just got myself a swamp ash N4 and have been trying to find out more about it. Can someone help and tell me if this is a Jap or US N4?

Visual inspection shows:-
1. No made in USA stamp.
2. Has a 9406XXX serial on both headstock and electronics cavity.
3. Can't access truss rod w/o neck or PU removal.
4. Lock nuts on neck are top mounted.
5. Floyd is a Washburn made in Germany by Schaller (which seems like the old cheaper FR II with the hardened steel inserts)

Links to photos here-

I have not removed the neck to inspect the joint. The neck fit on this guitar is near perfect with no gaps and absolutely smooth. So I'm trying not to remove the neck at all.

Is this Jap? The guitar plays and sounds as good as any US N4 I've tried. I've only just found out after getting the guitar that there was such a thing as a Japanese version.

Help appreciated. Thanks.
