Washburn Nuno Bettencourt Signature Series N4 Padauk 1993

Grover Jackson was in control of Washburn's USA Custom Shop. The N4 design changed slightly. The control cavities became smaller and took on a new shape and the neck "roll" became a "shelf". 
The N4 also made its first appearance with a body other than Alder (at least as a production guitar). The N4 Padauk was released in 1993 (though Stephen Davies had made at least one N4 in Padauk for Nuno). 

Washburn Nuno Bettencourt Signature Series N4 1993

Designed by Nuno Bettencourt and Stephen Davies the N4 was released in late 1990 and ran through 1992 when the design changed slightly under Grover Jackson. Some of the N4s produced in 1992 are known as "transition models" as several guitars had work done by Stephen Davies who then sent the guitars or bodies onto the Washburn Custom Shop for the rest of the work.
Some of Grover Jackson's design changes included control cavities becoming smaller and having differet shapes and the neck "roll" became a squared "shelf".
