I don't need or particularly want any more guitars. But if I did a T63 would be top of the list.
Congratulations! It's going to be great.
Hope you enjoy it. I also have a Kirn & ordered a Nash T-52 around the same time. Since the T-52 arrived the Kirn has remained in it's case.
Almost exactly two months to the day, the Nash is in. Being shipped to me from CME, should arrive with me tomorrow. (Team Built CS Strat also ordered today...innocent whistle...)
This arrived today. Very impressed. Case is gorgeous and I love how compact it is. The lacquer smell never gets old when you open the case. Build quality on the guitar is high. Perhaps the loudest electric guitar I have while unplugged...assuming that is the ash body. This is the only ash bodied guitar currently in the stable. Neck is nicely worn in. Fairly dark piece of rosewood. Aging is tasteful...looks like it had a couple unfortunate mishaps “during its life.” Ha. Haven’t gotten a chance to plug it in yet. Can’t wait to hear the middle position. Struck by the yellowish tint the pickguard has. Still looks handsome though! The Sonic Blue is very bright. This guitar sticks out amongst the others on the wall, no doubt!
Sounds wonderful. Nash really did a nice job balancing the outputs of the pickups. Hoping the neck grows on me otherwise I may have to swap it out for something less yellow and less worn. It seems like that’s been the biggest gripe with these guitars, and I understand it.
From the thread title that is exactly my first thought. Figured he had bought a vintage car.
Which Lollar did they end up putting in the bridge? Special? Vintage?

Ordered a roasted quartersawn maple neck with a rosewood fretboard from Warmoth tonight. As apparently I can’t leave well enough alone ha. But that neck wasn’t “well enough” either. Figure if I ever want to get rid of it I can just bolt the stock one back on there and keep the signature/serial number in tact. The beauty of four screws!
THAT would require me to pull the bridge pickup ha. Not really concerned though, as I was only interested in a good balance. And it’s a great balance. The only documentation for the guitar is this:
Was balanced pickups a problem with your Kirn? It sure was was with mine. the bridge pickup was like -10 db quieter than the neck & sounded puny. No way could I ever use it live.
Will be absolutely killer.
I thought Metropolitan:
Nope. I chose my own pickups for both the Kirns I had. Harry Haeussel in Germany. I explained to him what they were going in, the importance of the middle position to me and the sound that I was going for, and he hit it on the head for both sets he wound for me. I also have two of his ‘59 humbuckers in my R8 and it is, without question, the finest sounding modern Les Paul I’ve ever heard (I chalk most up to the pickups but some comes from the vintage wiring harness too I’m sure).
I just couldn’t deal with the neck. As much as I like how it feels, the color just makes me want to puke. So I have a roasted quartersawn maple one on the way and I’m going to just hit it with some Tru-Oil and maybe gunstock wax and be done with it. I’ll keep the Nash neck in case I ever want to sell it, but it will be tucked away somewhere I don’t have to see it.
Ordered an expensive partscaster.
Near as I can tell part of the appeal
for most folks is the aging. And specifically the broken in feel/wear on the neck.
Within a day ordered a replacement neck? Because of said relic’ing/wear?
Hope it works out I guess
Reading @Ronkirn’s posts and from the one time I swapped a neck, I think the neck/body pairing is part of the magic of a guitar.
Funny, but I drove a car just like this one when I had my temporary driver's license and still learning to drive.
Looks beautiful. Love sonic blue and rosewood. Congratulations!
Nice score, looks great and I've heard all good things about Nash guitars.
The prices seem reasonable to me even if they are partscasters considering the cost of nitro finish, fret work, lollars and aged hardware etc. It takes time to do all that and source the parts and having the Nash name gets you more on resale if needed.
