Hey guys, sorry for the delayed update. I've got bad news with a happy ending. The bad news is that there was a crack in the headstock so I'm returning it to Jon. The good news is that I've got first dibs on the first official Washburn N7 which Jon will have in about 6-8 weeks.

Sad for you mate, but it's coming out all good.

Yeah, I remember that - it was an alder N6 with silver pickguard.

I can't imagine how pi$$ed off you are after waiting for so long...

But... An official Washburn N7?!!! Now that's going to be truly awesome! And, is it a hint as to what Nuno has in store for the next Extreme album?...

I don't think the crack happened during shipping. looks more like it was due to the wood being too dry.

Yeah I was pretty bummed out about it but as soon as I told Jon about it, he told me about the Official batch of N7s comin his way so I turned that frown upside down very quickly.

If it's anything like the one Nuno has, it has an SD 59 and an SD Distortion.

wonder how similar the FM N7 and Washburn N7 will be?

more to the point, I wonder how insane the price of the Washburn N7 is gonna be!

I guess the price will depend on the woods used for it... If it's like the basic N4 it shouldn't be that expensive...

padauk is a tough wood........no doubt.

I love it, but it hates me.

the Stock n7 will have a duncan distortion in the bridge. Alder body, maple neck and ebony fretboard

dennis or Radji, if you want to post a photo of the washburn n7, please feel free (that way I'm not the one who posted it) Laughing
