Nuno Bettencourt Washburn-Zemaitis One-Off Guitar

Custom N4/N5 NZ collector model guitar

NUNO!!!

(posted 04/08/2010)

Anyone catch Nuno Bettencourt last night on American Idol with Rihanna? I owe Nuno for showing up to save me as I was becoming Hip-Mo-Tized by Rihanna's outfit-- WTF was she wearing & and how did she get into it... or even move? And she moved alright. All tough questions. And ironically, I probably wouldn't be watching Idol if not for Mrs. Stratoblogster pretty much forcing me to. Pretty much. Anyway, Mrs. S was about to do me bodily harm at about the instant Nuno appeared with a rescue solo. And I blurt out, "NUNO!!!" followed by my off-balance other half's, "Who's that? Who does HE play for?" All I could say was, "That's Nuno, the guitar guy, Nuno! He plays guitar!"

Whew! Hip-mo-tized and rescued all in one fell swoop!

Anyhow, the Nuno Bettencourt Washburn super Strat scene is quite alive and well! In fact, below you see a one-off custom "NZ N5" model, originally owned by Nuno, and currently listed for sale BIN by FUNKY-MUNKY-MUSIC-guitars-and-parts (LISTING EXPIRED) , the world's largest Washburn Nuno Bettencourt dealer. They're also a big ENGL dealer.
