2nd hand, swapped for a pretty nice yamaha se812 and £100.
Im a big fan of Nuno Bettencourt whos signature model this is. The body is quite dinky, and is natural wood finish. The pickups are seymore duncan and do their job with ease. i prefer the bridge pickup for more tone. The guitar has just a volume knob so there is not a great range in tone, however the pickups are great with the volume pot turned down. really cleat. Floyd rose is the order of the day. Also its got a great fender style reverse headstock.
It appears not to be varnished or sealed and this has caused sweat to penetrate the top of the wood just south of the top e between the pick-ups. not a major problem though.
Excelent sound and a great looking guitar. people go...wow
In which country she does doing? (USA, Japan, Mexico, France ...)
Made in chine_ contrairelment to further notice, do not believe that this guitar is makes or assembles in the States because there is marked on the micro usa amricain Bill Lawrence! n2 are all Asian manufacturing! it is the n4 are made in usa.
How many frets, what kind of microphone and their configuration?
22 frets mediums, 1 neck pickup Washburn 621, 1 micro acute Bill Lawrence L500
- What type of bridge (Floyd, Wilkinson ...)?
Floyd Rose vibrato types, but mediocre quality
What rglages (volume, Tone slecteur micro ...)?
1 Toggle switch 3 positions, one single volume push pull
- What type of race?
Channel maple with a head Pomel relates anonymous mechanical oil bath, rosewood fingerboard
half round profile, trslgrement flattened in its center (stratovolcano, what), unvarnished, but nothing do with handle super wizzard my Ibanez rg (very thin, flat, perhaps the most end of the market. So, unlike other opinion, I think it is rather big stick, at least one and a half times thicker than my moua mine.
I put 6 because the average finishing, rglage very poorly done (action too high, poor spring tension) and the quality of the Floyd Face
- Is the handle enjoyable?
Very comfortable, pleasant and very correct finish profile frets, no varnish, really not bad
- The access to acute (desti- nations most recently freight) is it easy?
ok, nothing more, but not very square heel plate
Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
good point: the body is slightly smaller than usual, the weight of lightness: Jupiter really perfect ergonomics
- Gets it easy to sound good ...?
on this point, yes, these are great mics, especially Bill Lawrence
I put 8
Appropriate are your style of music?
everything (heavy Mtal)
With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
Marshall JCM 2000 boss mt2, Digitech whammy, chorus, Dlay
What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "bold", ....)?
Good, clean sounds are not at all terrible, even splitts microphones, they are too powerful, more than my Ibanez Js and Rg
What sonorits you prfrez, you dtestez?
Saturations are really good, clean sounds not exploitable (too acute and slammin)
for a lover of big distortion, I put 8
How long have you use it?
What is the particular feature you like best and least?
+: The price: yes, sold to buy new price of 250 eur, not too much what to deny (it was worth 450 new), microphones (especially acute), are the highlight of this guitar, but this price, do not be too fussed on the finish, and rglages, but I've had worse. In my humble opinion, keep the base of the vibrato, change the jumpers for Schaller or Original Floyd and you have an excellent scratch not too expensive. I possde a 335 ft, an Ibanez Joe Satriani 100, R 550 and a 20th anniversary, no comparison can woods and finishes level, but this price, this instrument is not bad at all level defends sound.
With experience, I would do this choice at the price o I bought (over 250 €, new), but I think that at normal price (450EUR), I would not have bought or when a Ibanez S series
I know sries prcdentes factories in Japan or core is of great quality and netement suprieures then certainly worth the 450EUR demands. O the price I got it, I put 8, otherwise I would have put 6 because of Floyd and finishing and medium wood quality.

nebs's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
I owned the first version of N2 92 or 91, it was black with 3 position selector types strato not tggle switch.
Really heavy guitar!
floyd, head reverse.
manufacture of good quality.
Fairly round handle and really too wide for my hands. heutes frets, it gives a hard guitar to play, especially at the time I began as a soloist.
a weight to break the back!
use is limited to hard fM
The use was most reduced: the hard FM.
Not a drop of soul in this guitar. The right and accurate flawless, quality disconcerting neutrality.
I sold this guitar in 1300 francs (200 euros) with its hardcase.
Using reduced to hard FM. Nothing to do with the kramer jackson and I had later that had a real character ...
A guitar for the fan of Bon Jovi, for the rest it any strat copy will do better.
a pale copy of the N4.
Nevertheless, good finish.
