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.
