It looks like a N4 but without Duncan and Bill Lawrence pickups and finish with a less careful. There's no sign either, it is a model home NX3 Washburn (there's no marked Nuno Bettencourt Model Series Nexter but the headstock)
Available in black, natural, green weird

UTILIZATION

A sleeve of the handle if the most enjoyable I have played, access to acute is better than a guitar Flying type, the horn is very low and below the handle is attached with 5 screws with a handle body junction Stephens Extended Cutaway type as the models N4 and N6 Nuno Bettencourt, particularity: this guitar has no heel to fix body / sleeve, you can make a bar chord at the 17th box without any problems.
Ergonomics is phenomenal form stratabound but more slender, the scratch is very light, perfect for running around on stage without getting tired or being mal.Au its level, it's okay that I changed the pickups Duncan 59 in a serious and a Bill Lawrence XL500 in acute (such as what to N4)

SOUNDS

Suitable for any style of music but with a tendency still modern and aggressive.
With an ADA microtube 100, a Mesa Studio preamp and an Engl baffle, the sound is really excellent, we get all kinds of sounds but still a little sharp and acidic side. This guitar is perhaps not the best for blues or jazz but rock / hardcore / metal is excellent

OVERALL OPINION

Used for 3 years, fixing the handle is monstrously enjoyable. By changing the original pickups, I got something very close to a Washburn N4 in sound, the finish is not as neat but it is far from a 1500 euros N4, Paid $ 759 new on music123 . com, I would do the purchase with eyes closed, too bad she is no longer manufactured and it does not exist in version Padouk
