Very alive sounding. Tonally, this guitar reminds me of a semi-hollow thinline tele. Even the neck pickup has that classic tele spank to it! - Eddie (email@example.com)
This is a Hybrid of two classic guitar designs. Only Bill Nash can pull this off and still have an amazing playing relic that looks like the "J" guitar and sounds like the "T" guitar. You won't see many of these around!
When we first picked up Bill Nash's guitars, we utterly amazed at the quality of his workmanship. Not only is his relic-ing top notch, but all of the instruments have a resonance that is hard to find these days from an instrument pulled off the wall at GC. We think this is due to a very thin coat of nitrocellulose lacquer, a properly seated neck pocket, and the appropriate density of the woods used. Combine this with Jason Lollar's pickups and you really have a match made in heaven. The pickups have that incredible bell-like tone with just the right amount of output. Finally a guitar that sounds and plays like the originals did in the late 50's. We've had people come in to compare their vintage Strats and Fender CS's to a Nash walk out with a Nash guitar because it was simply a better guitar. You can't argue with the price either. Most relics on the market are nearly double the price of a Nash. A Bill Nash guitar is a real player's instrument. His philosophy is that they should be used, abused, and then used some more.
