Overview

The Washburn Nuno Bettencourt Nele Standard is the latest collaboration between Nuno Bettencourt and Washburn. This bold instrument is inspired by some great vintage instruments, but it’s far from traditional. It delivers more tonal options and a feel that is far faster and enticing than its forerunner. The Washburn Nele Standard features a natural-grain swamp ash body, equipped with a Seymour Duncan Vintage Stack in the neck position, a Bill Lawrence L-250 bridge pickup and an innovative 6-way “Freeway Ultra” switch. The new tone switch gives players access to the three common settings and then three additional hot-rod options. Each Nele is custom-built in the Washburn USA custom shop.
