N Series (Nuno Bettencourt) / Davies serial numbers: new info?
« on: January 24, 2014, 10:14:27 PM »
Common knowledge is that Stephen Davies N4's were made in 1991.  However, not all 1991 N4 serial numbers have the same code order.  It seems that early 91 N4's have numbers with the year at the end of the number code (i.e.  xxxx91) and later 1991 models have the year at the beginning (i.e.  91xxxx).  Recently, someone extremely knowledgeable and respected in the N4 world recently implied that 1991 models with the year at the beginning of the number chain were not built by Davies in the Seattle shop but were built in the Washburn Chicago factory. 

The reason I bring this up is because I see many 91 N4's, with the year at the beginning of the SS#, yielding top dollar because they are advertised as Davies models, when in fact they may not be.  Any thoughts or further info?

Has anyone done this?  Does an N2 have the same exact dimensions as an N4?

N Series (Nuno Bettencourt) / Where can I get parts for my Davies N4?
« on: June 10, 2013, 11:36:24 PM »
I recently picked up my second Davies N4 and need the following:

white/cream pu selector knob with the appropriate threads
volume knob
tight fitting case 
Kahler Steeler trem arm

It used to be easy to get accurate parts when the "old" Funky Munky store was around.  Jon really new his stuff.  Where should I go now? Direct from Washburn?  I contacted them a few months ago and the case was around $250  :o
