Need to sit down for a while. Just bought the most expensive guitar I've ever bought blindly: A Washburn N3 N4, only 20 made for FunkyMunky's, based on nuno's 3rd prototype. <wiping sweat of the forehead>. It will take a long trip over the Atlantic. <fingers crossed>. I'll keep you posted.
UPDATE: The N3 ARRIVED FINALLY !
Seems well packed, although a little more cardboard wouldn't have hurt:
Aaarg... a universal fit (or read nothing to fit) case. Seems that washburn uses these for quite a while now. I don't get this, the guitar can move around when the case is closed, and that ended up giving problems...
Holy cr*p on a cracker... I really didn't like discovering this. Look at the difference in clearance there. And besides that, that gap between the Stephen's Cutaway and the body could be use to store picks:
Seems that the neck screws weren't tight at all, no surprise the neck got dislocated during an adventurous flight over the Atlantic, in the £%$^ù$* of a case. But luckily we have N-freak Ayrton on board here at Jemsite, who reassured me and gave me some pointers. Everything got fine. Thx Ayrton !
CHECK NEXT PAGE in this thread for following pictures, and a nice surprise !
