Oh, so will Washburn now make three guitars in the US?
Not gonna lie...I do kinda want one.
It does look cool, though highly unlikely it's worth whatever they're asking. If SEC was available on Warmoth, I'd love it. It IS a cool joint. But other than that, the guitars are unremarkable partscasters.
To be clear, Washburn doesn't make anything. It's all farmed out.
Ahh, i thought there were 2 models that were made in the US, by them...but even if they are made in the US, you're saying they are ghost-built?
Yep. I think in Ohio now.
Want ohhh so much want!
Sorry... I like telecasters, but this I I don't.
The Charvels look better in my opinion.
I had one of the not Nuno guitars that had the SEC. It was one of those ones that wasn't a bad guitar, but it wasn't a good guitar either.
But my first guitar was an Idol, so I I still have a soft spot for them.
I guess if you ever wanted a sicc shred tele (shredele) this is it
Yeah, I'd take the new Charvel shred Teles over this, any time.
I really like it, tho if I had the money it would go on an N4 rather than this
Looks very home made and a little el cheapo. Plus: if upper fret access is important to you - why play a Tele in the first place?
IIRC the non-figured top version is supposed to be $2200.
I assume the homemade one up top is the “non figured top” version?
The placards behind the guitars have the MAPs listed at $2299 and $27$$ (price partially obscured).
The Nunos have always been very basic, but they're awesome players. The fretwork is typically very very nice and the underside body makes them feel easier to get your arms around. Balance is great too. I don't see the Tele breaking the mold.
Yeah build quality looks solid from the pics... not sure if I dig the shape or not, but the changes from a "normal" tele make sense from a playability / access standpoint.
