Budget-friendly model inspired by Nuno's more premium models.

Guitar virtuoso Nuno Bettencourt's Signature Washburn N1 guitar takes its design cues for many of its features from Nuno' premium N4 and N2 line of guitars. The N1 features an alder body, maple neck with rosewood fingerboard which is fitted with jumbo frets for easy playability and smooth note bends. The N1 also features high-quality Washburn die-cast tuners for excellent tuning stability, a Graph Tech NuBone nut for outstanding tone transfer, and a fulcrum tremolo bridge with individual saddles which allows for easy string height and intonation adjustments. The dual Washburn humbucking pickups provide high output with superior tone and are wired using with the same single volume control and 3-way toggle switch configuration as found on all Nuno Bettencourt N Series guitars.

Whether you're a budding shredder or just looking for a great sounding, value-priced guitar that looks super cool and plays great, the Washburn N1 is the ideal place to start. The Washburn N1 includes a Limited Lifetime Warranty and is available in matte black or natural matte finishes.

    Comments about Washburn Nuno Bettencourt Signature Electric Guitar:

    I've had this guitar for about a year. The best part about this guitar is the neck. It has a nice fat c shape to it and the board is pretty flat. The body is a little small compared to a strat but it fits me well. Mine is the natural finish and it looks awesome. I love the simplicity of the one volume knob. All the electronics work. If you're looking for a nice comfortable neck, try this guitar.

      Comments about Washburn Nuno Bettencourt Signature Electric Guitar:

      This was my very first guitar when I was learning to play, and it still means a lot to me. It was a huge jump from the immitation SG that I was using at the time. The setup was great, and it had a great sound. It's a wonderful beginner guitar, and I would recommend it to anyone who was just starting out.

      Comments about Washburn Nuno Bettencourt Signature Electric Guitar:

      When I received the guitar in the mail it had a bowed neck. I adjusted the truss rod n fixed it. But after fixing that I noticed the frets were not level n had sharp ends. The 3way selector is so cheap n flimsy. I will say it has pretty good pick ups and the light weight is awesome cuz it doesn't hurt neck n back. The natural wood looks cool. Would I buy this again? No I wouldn't because of poor quality. I never had this problem with an ibanez witch that is what what my next guitar is going to be.
