they look like very good woodshop projects that got bolted together and never finished
Wood looks like wood come on guys
god forbid a guitar doesn't have turquoise and orange burl on top
So it looks like a Nuno guitar,
Not sure what people were expecting. The Nuno line always was a no frills guitar with a cool as shit neck joint.
Boy, do I feel like a dummy. I had never held one in my hands, and when looking at the back only gave a passing glance at the neck plate itself...but up until this very moment, I always thought that triangle of different wood on the body, on the bass side of neck, was just decorative. A signature design element. or maybe some sort of "maple tone block" for some cork-sniffers. It never occurred to me that the neck was actually cut from a double-wide billet (ok, so it's probably 2 necks from a double-wide billet, layed out in opposition, and cut out with a band saw, like a yin-yang) and that this was a wing off the side of the neck.
I wonder if it is being farmed out to DEAN USA.... This style of Nuno reminds me a lot of the NashVegas USA models.
While I don't know exactly who's making the Nunos for Washburn now, I know it's not Dean.
Far too much money for a Washburn.
Or if it's natural it needs to look like it was rolled in mud or a sewer pit then wiped down
Honestly haven't played one of the current USA Washburn's to comment. Going by the photos build quality looks good so can't say $2200 is too much for a USA built guitar given Indonesian stuff if going for $1500+ now
Give one a spin.
I'll be the first to say they're not really lookers, and the spec sheets are about as vanilla as you can get, but these are superb player guitars.
USA made Washburn guitars are a solid deal at 2k. The extra 200 bucks is for Nuno.
I've owned two N4's. I like the guitars, I really do. But they're no different than a well assembled Warmoth (which is what the N4 originally replaced or Nuno).
The only Warmoths I've seen with as good of fretwork I've fretted, but fair enough.
Okay. Like I said, a well assembled Warmoth, which means the tech dresses the frets. I've had zero issues with them, and it's just a better value. I think the fact that N4's have steadily gone up in price with nothing additional to show for it is insane. I paid $1400 new for my last one in 2008.
Very excited to introduce you to my new addition to the family.
Please say hello to:
“ Nele “
I’ve been wanting my version of the legendary Tele for years.
With the Nele..I get 6 distinctly different tones with a unique 6 way, left to right, up and down selector switch.
Already used it on Extreme’s sixth album and loving this little baby.
Enjoy the first pics from birth.
They are twins, but they’re fraternal.

I... like it. Thankfully it doesn't have a trem, and the new Charvel does... Saves a bunch of cash.
Aren't the new Charvel teles HH? I wouldn't compare it to an SS with modern playability.
Anywho, any tele released this year pales in comparison to the Aristides T/0.
I really like the new Washburn NELE guitars. When I first saw them it was a bit unexpected and I didn’t know what to think. In the past month or so since NAMM they have really grown in me. I think they are really good looking guitars.
