Product Description

An extremely fast neck with easy access to the higher frets anchors this rock machine. A Duncan '59 and a Lawrence L-500 in the bridge make this reverse headstock marvel wail. The Floyd Rose with locknut keeps this machine within Feiten intonation specs. The Stephen's Cutaway allows for unsurpassed access. A Washburn standard, it is a super road axe. Just ask Nuno and the thousands of musicians who play them.

"Guitar of the gods. Built to please in every way and succeeds."
Sound: Huge tonal range, very versatile. The relic/vintage is the beast to get if you can afford it but all N4s are amazing machines. Feature: To be fair this guitar can do a whole load. It isn't stacked with features but what it does it does very well. Tone wise there is no tone control but the choice of pickup gives a wide range anyway. You can easily add to this selection by backing off the volume control. The hardware is all top notch, reliable and effective, with grover tuners, floyd rose (some have schaller) trem, bill lawrence l500 in bridge and duncan '59 in neck. Ease of Use: Less features means less to learn and less to go wrong. Playability is what this guitar is all about. The neck is pure joy and the guitar is light and very well balanced. I have the vintage which comes as standard with locking strap buttons too. The pickup switch and volume are well placed and the body is well contoured. Quality: No fancy finishes here. Just a lovely bit of well cut wood, routed and drilled precisely and finished with wax. All hardware is is of the best quality and well fitted. The vintage has an original floyd rose trem which is made of harder metal than the schaller but both are great bits of gear. The tuners are smooth and precise and the jack and volume are top end, not some cheap parts bolted on. Value: I paid $1499.99 including shipping to the Uk for my relic, which sells here in England for $2500.00 Manufacturer Support: I emailed an enquiry to washburn and recieved a reply the following day. I would say that was pretty good. I have heard horror stories from others about washburn service but in my own experience they are fantastic. The Wow Factor: Pure genius. If you are a fan of Nuno Bettencourt it is obvious when first playing this guitar that he had a lot of input. The neck, body, size and weight are all spot on. Everything suits a fast, easy fluid playing style and the neck join makes high fret access an absolut wonder. Overall: I think I have said it all. I love this guitar. The standard N4 is awesome, the paduak N4 is awesome and has a great dark sound and the vintage is a supreme guitar of the highest quality and playability.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
