For almost 3 decades, guitar virtuoso Nuno Bettencourt and Washburn have paired up to design and craft the thrilling guitar players main axes. His celebrated N4 and the special variations of this revered instrument have been on stages all over the world. From his time as lead guitarist for the Platinum selling band Extreme, as an acclaimed solo musician, as Musical Director for the multi Grammy Award winning songwriter Rihanna or as a member of Steve Vai’s touring super group of guitarists Generation Axe, Nuno’s N4 has been there.
