They are pretty good! They use good components and have the feel of vintage guitars. However, I am not into relic guitars so they wouldn't be my first choice, but to others they might be.

I'm not real big on relics but the Nash's I've tried were very good guitars; quality components, very nice necks and pickups.

I love the feel and tone out of my t-63, best tele I’ve ever played

i went to ft worth for tele expedition and that’s what I came home with

felt like home when I picked it up, worth the $$ for me ….
Ft worth for tele expedition? where?

Re: neck finish
If ever I get a Nash, I want a rosewood board and matching headstock, just to minimize the visible amount of uncalled for yellow they use in their lacquer.

I agree with this. Not trying to slam Nash, the ones I've played were nice to play and sounded good, and I don't understand why people crap on them because they're parts guitars. That's what Fender guitars have always been, that's the whole point of the Fender design philosophy. But the neck tint was like saffron yellow and man...it's a lot!

The only thing that really bugged me about them other than the tint was the way they treated the pickup covers. On the ones I played it was like somebody took a cheese grater to the edges of the covers. Ragged and awful. Don't understand what they're thinking on that one.

I have been hearing a lot lately about these guitars so, can anyone comment on them? How do they compare to a Telecaster? I haven't ever bought a boutique
guitar but maybe in the future, I will. Perhaps in a few years when I turn 50 :eek:
I’ve played a couple Nash teles at Gryphon Stringed Instruments when I lived in Palo Alto. They’re really nice playing and I’d snag one in a second.

I just got this one used on Reverb. I’m not a relic finish fan, but it plays nice and sounds good. I’ll keep you posted.

My most recent partscaster build was based on a T63 that I saw on the Nash website.

I've heard that Nash Guitars is located somewhere in Washington state. Anybody know where?

I have had several and Bill is top choice for me. The setup and feel of the guitar out of the box is so impressive. I make amps for a living and several guys have walked out with an amp and a guitar when they play his on my amps. I have had two T57 and an E. Never liked a strat but pretty much need one for some shows coming up and looking at Bill's stuff now.
Thanks,
Gordon
