Nuno Bettencourt Signature Model.

EA20SNB


Washburn Guitars and world renown guitarist, Nuno Bettencourt, introduce the EA20SNB Signature stage ready acoustic/electric guitar.

Best known for his ground breaking work in Extreme and currently touring with Rihanna, Nuno Bettencourt is truly a guitar hero, inspiring millions of guitarists around the world. While primarily know for his electric work on his Washburn N4 Signature guitar, Nuno and Extreme came to prominence with the acoustic hit, "More Than Words", which featured the guitarist playing a Washburn Festival Series acoustic/electric guitar. Nuno has continued to feature Washburn Festival Series guitars in his acoustically driven songs to this day.

It is with that spirit and desire to create the perfect stage and studio ready instrument that Washburn and Nuno teamed up to create the EA20SNB. The guitar is a thin jumbo style acoustic/electric with a Florentine cutaway for extended upper fret access. It features a book matched solid Alaskan Sitka spruce top with quarter sawn scalloped bracing and gorgeous book matched Santos Rosewood back and sides. A smooth satin finished mahogany neck offers the utmost playing comfort and is topped with a Ovankol fingerboard which matches the Ovankol bridge. The fretboard also features custom mourning widow inlays at the 12th fret. A bone nut and saddle provide ultimate tone transfer and increased sustain. The unique rosette features the mourning widow motif which ties in with the fretboard inlay.

One of the best features of the EA20SNB is its feedback reducing thin body and the inclusion of the Fishman Isys+ Tuner/Preamp/Pickup combo for superb natural sounding amplified tone. Fishman is known as the industry standard for acoustic amplified tone and Nuno would settle for no less.
