Washburn Nele

Yes, a great name for a guitar! The Nele is the latest collaboration between Nuno Bettencourt and Washburn. Apparently inspired by some great vintage instruments, it will “deliver more tonal options and a feel that is far faster and enticing than its forerunner.”

The Nele Standard shown features a natural-grain swamp ash body, a Seymour Duncan® Vintage Stack® in the neck position, a Bill Lawrence L-250 bridge pickups, and an innovative 6-way “Freeway Ultra” switch. The new tone switch gives players access to the three common settings and then three additional hot-rod options.

Each Nele is custom-built in the Washburn USA custom shop.
