Washburn International has the launched the NV electric acoustic guitars. The NV line consists of two models, the NV100 and NV300, which are offered in tobacco sunburst, natural, and black.

"We set out to design a new acoustic electric that would be unlike anything available in the marketplace. I focused on practicality for the professional recording and performing artists. The general parameters were an amalgam of patented features, player comfort, road worthiness, audio execution, and a nouveau look that brings acoustic electrics into the 21st century." Said Larry English Vice-President of Manufacturing and Marketing. The NV's Unibody construction is made up of one piece of hollowed mahogany with a spruce top. The slim, fast electric style neck has a bolted neck joint with a patent pending, locking pitch adjustment and coverless truss rod adjustment access. These guitars also offer features that are not available on any other acoustic - neck access to the 22nd fret of the 25 1/2" scale, a bass balanced bridge, and a belly cut for player comfort.

The NV300 utilizes a customized electronics package developed in conjunction with Fishman Electronics, that features a magnetic neck pickup voiced for phosphor bronze strings. This is combined with the latest in under saddle piezo technology, a preamp with EQ, a notch filter, phasing and blending capabilities and Washburn's groundbreaking combination 1/4" pin and XLR jack, which controls the on-off power through either input. The NV100 utilizes a custom under saddle tape microphone with a BBand preamp, providing the ultimate in acoustic amplification. Both models have incredible intonation, a result of the Buzz Feiten Tuning System. More information is available at www.nvguitar.com.
