What is a Nashguitar? It's the closest thing to vintage that you can get without taking a second mortgage. It's a hand-crafted guitar with a vintage vibe. It's an old-school electric with new-school parts. It's a guitar set up by a pro to be played by anyone.
Alder and Ash bodies in 1, 2 or in some cases, 3 piece construction, depending on year, make and color. 3 pieces are rare, but in some cases three light and resonant pieces of wood will make a much better guitar or bass than one piece of unhappy wood. Heavy, ugly and clunky wood is rejected. Mahogany is used on 69 thinlines if ordered as such.
Necks are of one piece maple or maple with rosewood fingerboard construction. Fingerboards are a 10 radius and frets are a Dunlop 6105 or similar size. Guitar nut width is 1 5/8. Bass nuts are 1 11/16 on P and 1 ½ on J. Neck shapes are Medium C or Boat (large profile with a understated V). Vintage single action truss rods with heel adjust. Flame and Birdseye are available for additional charge. Nuts are Tusq.
All finish is Nitrocellulose Lacquer. No plastics, polys or other materials are used. This applies to the grain filling, undercoating and other prep coats.
Colors include: Two Tone, Three Tone, Amber Clear, Black, Burgundy Mist, Butterscotch Blond, Candy Apple Red, Charcoal Frost Metallic, Cream, Daphne Blue, Dakota Red, Desert Sand, Fiesta Red, Ice Blue Metallic, Inca Silver, Lake Placid Blue, Mary Kay White, Natural Clear, Olympic White, Sonic Blue, Seafoam Green, Sherwood Green Metallic, Shoreline Gold, Shell Pink, Ocean Turquoise Metallic, Teal Green Metallic and Vintage White.
Standard aging levels are light, medium and heavy. Extra-heavy aging is available for additional charge.
Hardware is generally Gotoh vintage style. T bridges use compensated saddles for better intonation.
Pickups available are Lollar, Fralin, DiMarzio and Duncan. CTS pots, CRL switches, Switchcraft jacks and Sprague Orange-drop caps are standard.
Cases are included and are generally the rectangular ABS type in black with a small Nashguitars badge.
