Washburn N2-Nuno Bettencourt Electric Guitar

This N2-Nuno Bettencourt electric guitar features a Washburn humbucker neck pickup & a Lawrence® L-500 in the bridge, making this reverse headstock marvel scream! There’s also a push/pull coil-tap on the volume knob, giving even more versatility. These super road axes are the gateway to total creativity, just ask Nuno and his loyal legion of fans! In order to develop the N Series with Washburn, Bettencourt utilized his extensive knowledge of the guitar and designed each model with an extremely fast neck. Partner all of this with the Floyd Rose Special locking trem and you’ve got one heck of a rock axe.

“I played Washburn initially because I got to design the EXACT guitar that I wanted. 25 years and it’s still my perfect performance guitar – and the tone – THAT has become a part of my DNA. It’s STILL my go to guitar no question.” Washburn’s Nuno Bettencourt series electrics and acoustics represent over 25 years of collaboration with Nuno Bettencourt. Guitar virtuoso, singer-songwriter, and record producer, Nuno Bettencourt rose to international prominence as guitar player with the multi-platinum rock band EXTREME, one of the most successful rock acts of the early to mid 1990s selling over 8 million records worldwide. Nuno penned the acoustic ballad “More Than Words” that went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Outside of EXTREME, Nuno is also a member of the guitar supergroup GENERATION AXE. This supergroup features Nuno, Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Zakk Wylde and Tosin Abasi.


Nuno Bettencourt, born in Portugal and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, grew up in a very musical family. In his teenage years he began playing drums, bass and keyboards, but ultimately settled on guitar as his primary instrument. Since then, he has become one of the world’s greatest guitarists!

Nuno draws from an eclectic variety of styles and influences. He’s a tremendously technical and adept player, with an acute sense of rhythm. Most famous for his role in Boston-area group Extreme, who released five albums, Nuno has also released a solo album. He also formed the groups Mourning Widows and Population 1 (which eventually became DramaGods) and was featured in Satellite Party (formed by Perry Farrell). Although they had disbanded in 1995, in 2007, Extreme reunited and headlined Washburn’s 125th Anniversary Party at Winter NAMM 2008. For 2009-2013 Nuno joined Grammy Award winning R&B artist Rihanna as music director and lead guitarist on her world tour, playing to hundreds of thousands of fans across Europe and the U.S. EXTREME are currently touring again, with Nuno still wowing audiences across the world with his technical prowess and astonishing ability.
