Nash Guitars is the largest independent builder of aged Fender  inspired instruments in the world. Bill Nash has worked tirelessly to encompass the vibe, tone, and detailed nuance of a real, loved, and regularly played vintage Strat, Tele, classic Precision and Jazz Bass. 

Nashguitars replicate the look and feel of vintage pieces with updates that appeal to the modern player. All of their guitars and basses are handcrafted in the USA by guitar and bass players. We use only 100% Nitrocellulose lacquer and all paints are hand mixed. No plastics, polyesters, catalyzed lacquer, other wood strangling material are used.  Nashguitars manufacture 6 unique models of electric guitar and 2 bass models.  Choose between 9 Transparent colors, 4 "Bursts", 12 Opaque colors, 12 Metallic colors,  and 4 Specialty colors. All of our finishes are 100% nitrocellulose lacquer, hand mixed in small batches. Due to the nature of hand mixed paints and wood grain, not all colors will be precisely the same in hue and value. While we do strive for consistency, we also enjoy the individuality afforded by our process. All models offer an abundance of Dealer upgrades that include; left handed versions, boat neck, Humbucker, Charlie Christian, or P90 pickups, Bigsby vibrato, paint over paint finishes, matching headstocks, and cream, black or pearl double binding. Not all options are available on all models. A World Music Nashville associate will cover these options with you in the store.

T Models

The essential American solid body guitar. The original designs were so well conceived and engineered that few updates have been made since their conception. We offer virtually every important build based on the original designs.

T52

T52art

The classic. Virtually unchanged since it's initial design over 60 years ago. Our T52 comes with a hand-selected ash body, traditionally finished in either Butterscotch Blonde (pictured here) or Mary Kay White. This build features a maple neck and a 1-ply Black pickguard. No collection is complete without a T52.

Available Dealer Upgrades:

- Left handed

- Boat neck

- Humbucker, Charlie Christian, or P90 pickup in neck position

- Bigsby vibrato (not available on lefty builds)

T57

T57art

Pictured here in Black on ash, the T57 is the next stop in the evolution of our T Models. While the fretboard remains maple, our T57 is available in a wide variety of finish options. This model comes with a1-ply White pickguard on an ash body, though alder may be used on solid colors. The additional finish options and White guard give this transitional model character.

The T57 is available in all of our standard colors.

Available Dealer Upgrades:

- Left handed

- Paint over paint finish

- Cream, black, or pearl double binding

- Boat neck

- Matching headstock

T63

T63art

Our T63 represents a big shift in focus from the T52 and T57. This model is available in all standard finishes we offer, including the classic automotive inspired colors we've all come to know and love. The T63 is available with a 3-ply pickguard in Black, White, Mint, or Tortoise Shell. This model comes in either ash or alder, with a rosewood fretboard. 

Available Dealer Upgrades:

T68

T68art

After sourcing a yard of the original material found in Germany, we set about a lengthy process of replicating the paisley overlay accurately. You won't find a more faithful representation on a modern build. The nitrocellulose lacquer (as opposed to polyurethane) gives our T68 a marked improvement in resonance.

Available Dealer Upgrades:

- Left handed

- Paint over paint finish

- Boat neck

T69TL

T69TLart

A radical departure from the solid body T Models, the T69TL's semi-hollow body offers both weight relief and unique tonal characteristics. While most opt for the more traditional look of natural finish on mahogany (as pictured here), we also offer ash and alder bodies in any of our standard finishes. A maple or rosewood fingerboard and a distinctly shaped  3-ply pickguard in Black, White, Pearl, or Tortoise Shell complete this alluring gem.

Available Dealer Upgrades:

- Left handed

- Paint over paint finish

- Cream, black, or pearl double binding

- Top bound flame maple top

- Boat neck

- Matching headstock

- Bigsby vibrato (not available on lefty builds)

T72TL

T72TL A Art

Our T72TL is an iteration of the T69TL that maintains the semi-hollow body, while introducing two wide-range humbuckers and an S Model hardtail bridge. These pickups offer more energy, bigger sound, and reduced hum as compared to the T69TL. This model is available in ash or alder in any of our standard finishes, with a maple or rosewood fingerboard and a 3-ply pickgaurd in Black, White, Pearl, or Tortoise Shell.

Available Dealer Upgrades:

- Left handed

- Paint over paint finish

- Cream, black, or pearl double binding

- Boat neck

- Matching headstock

TC72

TC72art

Our TC72 is the perfect choice for those looking to capture the best of both worlds. It maintains the clean lines and feel of the T Models, but introduces a wide range humbucker in the neck. Additional volume and tone knobs allow for independent control of each pickup. The TC72 maintains a traditional tone in the bridge position, while the wide range humbucker in the neck opens the door to tones typically associated with the Les Paul. Shown here in Black on alder with a maple fretboard and a 3-ply Black pickguard. This model is available in both ash and alder, in all of our standard finishes, with either a maple or rosewood fretboard. The 3-ply pickguard is available in Black, White, Pearl, or Tortoise Shell.

Available Dealer Upgrades:

- Left handed

- Paint over paint finish

- Boat neck

- Matching headstock

- Bigsby vibrato (not available on lefty builds)

T72DLX

T72DLX A Art

Straying even further from traditional designs, the T72DLX, with its two wide range humbuckers, S Model headstock, Les Paul inspired wiring, and available S Model tremolo bridge make this guitar a unique and versatile choice. The Lollar wide range humbuckers used in this model are a superior upgrade from the thin and weak wide range humbuckers of yesteryear. Improvements in output and dynamic range have finally made this cult classic a viable tool. Pictured here in mocha on alder, the T72DLX is available on either ash or alder, in any of our standard finishes, with a maple or rosewood fretboard, and a 3-ply pickguard in Black, White, Pearl, or Tortoise Shell.

Available Dealer Upgrades:

- Paint over paint finish

- S Model tremolo bridge

- Boat neck

- Matching headstock

T2HB

T2HBart

A subtle yet remarkable departure from our traditional T Model builds. The T2HB offers players the ability to delve into tonal territory not usually associated with this classic body style. The T2HB features two humbucking pickups, a 500K volume pot, and a cut vintage style bridge with compensated brass saddles. This guitar offers a unique tonal experience while maintaining a familiar presentation.

The T2HB is available in all our standard colors, with either a 3-ply pickguard in Black, Pearl, Tortoise Shell, or White, or a 1-ply pickgaurd in Black or White.

Available Dealer Upgrades:

- Paint over paint finish

- Cream, black, or pearl double binding

- Boat neck

- Matching headstock

The T3HB adds a third, middle position, humbucker. 

S Models

With its instantaneously recognizable body shape, extremely stable tremolo, and three single coil pickups, our S Model guitars are not only classic but versatile as well. While paying homage to the near perfect original design, we incorporated a few changes to update both playability and sound. We have added a higher output bridge pickup and a much needed tone control. Together, these modifications provide enhanced flexibility and overall balance.

S57

S57art

As far as we are concerned, the S57 is the definitive iteration of this ubiquitous body style. A hand selected ash body, one piece maple neck, and 1-ply White pickguard give a timeless appearance. While Two Tone Sunburst is traditional, the S57 is available in any standard finishes we offer.

Available Dealer Upgrades:

- Left handed

- Hardtail (non-tremolo) bridge

S68HXart

 

In an homage to the great Jimi Hendrix who famously took a right handed guitar and played it left handed, we have taken our S67 with a left handed body and neck, and configured it for the right handed player.

While black or white with a maple neck are the most traditional choices, the S68HX can be ordered with a rosewood neck in any of the standard finishes we offer.

Available Dealer Upgrades:

The S68HX is only available with a CBS headstock and a tremolo bridge.

S81

S81art

Gold Foil

Gold Foil Art

Inspired by the legendary pickups in the Teisco Del Ray guitars of the 60s, Lollar created some of the most sought after tones in these new but authentic recreations. Our Gold Foil was designed and built around these unique pickups. Using the T Model footprint, we engineered the body and neck so that these pickups bolt directly to the wood at the optimum string-to-pickup height. The Gold Foil is available in both 2 and 3 pickup configurations. Ash or alder bodies are available in all standard colors we offer, with either a maple or rosewood neck. The pickguard can be 1-ply Black or White; or 3-ply White, Black, Mint, Tortoise Shell, or Pearl.

Available Dealer Upgrades:

- Boat Neck

T12

T12art

The T12 is the 12-String version of our T63 model.

Our goal was to build a 12-string guitar specifically for the electric player. With a wider neck, a flatter radius than most electric 12-strings, and a custom cut nut with narrower string pairings, the six-string player will feel right at home.

This model is available in all of our standard finishes. A 3-ply White, Black, Mint, Tortoise Shell, or Pearl pickguard, and either a rosewood or maple fretboard complete this superior 12-string offering.

Available Dealer Upgrades:

- Paint over paint finish

- Cream, black, or pearl double binding

- Matching headstock

- Humbucker in neck position

T12TL

T12TLart

Available Dealer Upgrades:

- Paint over paint finish

The Wayfarer

The Wayfarer Art

The Wayfarer is the newest addition to the Nashguitars family. It was inspired by the symmetrical lines and distinct colors of the automotive industry in the late 50s and early 60s, as well as the versatility afforded by a three humbucker configuration. Though it was designed to be unique in appearance, the Wayfarer maintains the aesthetic feel and playability Nashguitars is known for.

This build features a semi-hollow alder body, providing significant weight relief, as well as the ability to offer two different pickguard treatments. The "closed" pick guard gives a clean solid-body look, while the "open" pickguard provides a thinline appearance.

Most semi-hollow guitars are constructed with a laminated top that not only impacts the tone but diffuses sustain and pulls energy away from the center mass of the instrument. Our unique pickguard treatments provide the advantages of the semi-hollow body while maintaining the tone and sustain of a solid body.

The Wayfarer is not only straightforward but is extremely versatile as well. We have paired the three humbuckers with a push/pull coil tap tone knob and a five way selector switch. This guitar features DiMarzio Bluesbuckers in the neck and middle positions, and an Air Norton in the bridge. Unlike most humbuckers, the Bluesbucker is the only pickup we have come across that has a genuine single coil sound when tapped. In single coil mode this guitar has the sound you would expect from our S Models, including the 2 and 4 position "quack". In humbucking mode you get everything you'd want from true humbucking guitar. Additionally, there's no sacrifice in sustain because these pickups have extremely low string pull while still offering high output.

The Wayfarer is available with either a tremolo or non-tremolo bridge.

PB Models

Though the impact of the electric guitar is obvious, the significance of the electric bass is just as influential in the creation of modern popular music. Eschewing the traditional stand up bass in favor of the electric enabled groups to perform in larger venues, to bigger audiences, and was the last step in truly electrifying music. Our PB Models honor the tradition and feel of these trailblazers.

PB52

PB52Art

Our PB52 is based on the simple and perfect design of the original with a 20 fret maple neck, ash body, single coil pickup and minimalist layout. It features updates in the bridge and tuners for improved durability and ease of adjustment. Though traditionally Butterscotch Blonde with a 1-ply Black pickguard, all our standard colors are available.

For the late 60s/early 70s look, we offer a rosewood fingerboard and  3-ply pickguard in White or Tortoise Shell. 

Available Dealer Upgrades:

- Paint over paint finish

- JB pickup in the bridge position with stack knob setup

PB57

Our PB57 comes in both ash and alder. While Two Tone, Three Tone, and Black are the classic finish choices, this model is available in all of our standard colors. A Gold Anodized pickguard makes for the most traditional look, although 3-ply Black, White, Mint, Tortoise Shell, and Pearl are options as well.

JB Models

The final evolutionary stop in our line of electric basses. With their second pickup, thinner neck, and slightly more radical body shape, the JB Models have quickly become a favorite for many players. The JB Models have added midrange and treble frequencies which give them more punch and clarity than their PB counterparts.

JB63

JB63art

Although alder bodies and rosewood necks are considered the traditional standard, we also offer ash bodies and maple necks. 3-ply pickguards in White, Mint, Tortoise, Black and Pearl add to the wide variety of looks for the JB63.

JB5

JB5 Art

The JB5 is a great way to expand your tonal range, while not sacrificing the visual appeal of a vintage style instrument. The JB5 is available with all the same specifications as the JB63.

The JB5 is available in all our standard colors.

Available Dealer Upgrades:

- Paint over paint finish

- Matching Headstock

Nashguitars Standard Colors

All Nashguitars finishes are 100% nitrocellulose lacquer, hand mixed in small batches. Due to the nature of hand mixed paints and wood grain, not all colors will be precisely the same in hue and value. As digital screens vary, not all colors will look the same in person as below. While we do strive for consistency, we also enjoy the individuality afforded by our process.

All nashguitars come with a custom snakeskin hardshell case as well as a free setup by one of WMN's premiere guitar technicians.
