Washburn Nele Deluxe

The new Nuno Bettencourt Nele Series, launching in standard and deluxe versions, is a single-cut solid-body guitar that features a natural-grain swamp ash body, Seymour Duncan® Vintage Stack® neck pickups, Bill Lawrence L-250 bridge pickups, and an innovative 6-way “Freeway Ultra” switch. The new tone switch allows players to select from the neck pickup, bridge pickup, bridge and neck, both pickups in series and in phase, both pickups in series and out of phase, or both pickups parallel and out of phase.

The two versions feature slightly different builds, with the Standard version using a maple neck, birdseye maple fretboard and acrylic inlay, while the Deluxe version includes a birdseye maple neck, ebony fretboard and pearloid inlay. The Deluxe version also adds a figured maple cap on the swamp ash body. Both models utilize an extended cutaway and 22 fret board for maximum playability.


• Designed and played by Nuno Bettencourt

• Seymour Duncan® Vintage Stack® and Bill Lawrence L-250 pickups
