Overview

Washburn Guitars and world-renowned guitarist, Nuno Bettencourt have paired up to introduce the EA20SNB Washington Festival Series Nuno Bettencourt signature stage-ready acoustic-electric guitar.

Best known for his groundbreaking work in Extreme and currently touring with Rihanna, Nuno Bettencourt is truly a guitar hero, inspiring millions of guitarists around the world. While primarily known 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. The EA20SNB acoustic-electric features a book-matched solid Alaskan Sitka spruce top with quartersawn scalloped bracing and gorgeous book-matched rosewood back and sides. A smooth, satin-finished mahogany neck offers the utmost playing comfort and is topped with a rosewood fingerboard which matches the rosewood bridge. The fretboard also features custom mourning widow inlays at the 12th fret. A GraphTech Nubone nut and saddle provide ultimate tone transfer and increased sustain. Chrome die-cast tuners feature ultra-precise tuning and ensure tuning stability. The unique rosette also features the mourning widow motif to tie it 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+ preamp system for superb, natural-sounding amplified tone with tuner. Fishman is known as an industry standard for acoustic amplified tone and Nuno would settle for no less.
