Nuno Bettencourt 10th Anniversary N4 - Padouk Reissue

Anyone else completely miss the reissue of the yummy Padouk N4 I saw an add on a japanese shop site saying all 100 had been sold out. Admittedly I probably wouldn't have bought one, I just would have liked the option y'know

Oh well

That looked really light for a paduak, but it was probably the flash. I passed up a paduak, and bought the swamp ash version.

Nice guitar, but the worst trem I have ever dealt with. I think it was a lemon though, cuz a Schaller should be halfway decent.

I bought one - it rocks. The reason you missed it is that they only made a few for the US (about 30). This is not so much a reissue as a preliminary run. The initial ones are all being made in the custom shop, but they plan on starting a production line paduak after the Namm show.

How'd I come across one? I work at a Music store and I happened to be talking to my Rep when they were planning it all out.

If they only made a few for the US then they probably made even fewer for the UK
