2000 Washburn® Nuno N1 Clean & Set-up

Hi everyone!

Usually these types of thing we do present in a 2 part format but this guitar wasn't in that bad a condition so this will be a smaller post.

We had a Washburn® Nuno N1 come in a for a little refurb and set up. This guitar had been in storage for the best part of 10 years so for the most part was just a case of blowing the cobwebs out and giving it a good set-up.

The usual build up of grime on the fretboard and fretwire here. Nothing too drastic and easily solved with some cleaning fluid, a toothbrush and polishing paper.

Given a good clean and dousing in lemon oil the fretboard and fretwire come up looking good again.

Poking around in the control cavity led to a few interesting finds. The guitar had a tone pot fitted many years prior by another Luthier. The installed tone is the larger of the two pots shown here.

We were surprised at the amount of empty space that would have otherwise been here as standard!

A couple of pics to show the finished article!

That's it for this one! Hope you enjoyed reading!
