    This has been a good week for me and gear. Got 2 PRS's and now this Nash. Don't ask. It just happened this way. hahahah im stoked though!!


    I'm sure the level of "relic" will be polarizing, but i like it. Although, I wish the beaver that did all that hard work came with the purchase.

    Wow - that’s some wear! An eye catcher for sure :)

    Play it as you see it! Congrats. By all accounts wonderful guitars and I hope you enjoy yours.

    The onliest thing that made me tilt my head sideways, like a dog hearing something not quite right is the wear pattern from frets +/- 15-21, sort of weighing in from the bass side. After searching through my admittedly worn out memory banks, I could not recall any way that something like that might have happened.

    In other words, I can't claim to have seen anyone do anything to a guitar like that that would cause that to happen. But then again, so what? - might just be me and most likely there are experts here to set me straight, if that's even possible.

    ...edit, ok, maybe bad-fitting case wear. yeah, that's the ticket...

    I thought the same but then realized its supposed to be from someone playing with the picking hand higher, above the neck pickup. Notice the direction of the relic is horizontal instead of vertical like the rest of the neck wear.

    That is what happens when you re-enter Earths atmosphere with a late parachute opening. Cool looking enough.

    I started off not liking relics but now I prefer them. Yours looks great - hope it plays and feels great too!

    Whenever I put the first dent in a new guitar that's how I pictured in my mind.


    Congrats! I'm sure it's a great player, talk anything about relic guitars but they just feel good!

    I bought a used heavy reliced t52 at a great price. I love the way it plays & sounds, more than any of my Fenders or my Kirn custom. It's become one of my favorite guitars, hope you enjoy yours.

    Nice choice indeed:) Your guitar looks like one I was recently eyeing on Humbucker Music, could it be? I have (more than) one and love them. Congratulations!

    Congrats! How does she play? I've liked any of the Nash's I've tried. Degree of relic'ing is a personal thing but I've found them to be real nice playing. One of the best deals out there. Enjoy!

    Wow! Over the top but I dig it. It looks like a Saturday morning cartoon version of Bill Kirchen's "Coalburner"...and I mean that as a compliment!
