Nashguitars are the largest independent builder of aged guitars and basses.
Though our guitars replicate the look and vibe of old instruments, they have several updates in specs which appeal to the modern
player. Only 100% Nitrocellulose lacquer is used, and all paints are hand mixed. No plastics, polyesters,
catalyzed lacquer, or any wood strangling material.
Bill Nash designed his guitars to create an instrument that isn’t extremely expensive, yet still captures that great look, feel, and playability of well played and loved vintage Fender guitars.
Not only does his models look and feel like a vintage guitars, they also feature a number of popular modern appointments, such as Lollar handwound pickups and Gotoh Vintage tuning keys.
If anyone knows about building vintage guitars, it’s Bill Nash! He has worked with a HUGE number of them for many years and has a great deal of knowledge about how a vintage guitar looks and feels. The aged control knobs, pickguards, dinged and scratched finish, and aged hardware make the S-63 look old, but the modern techniques used to make the guitar ensure that it plays like a brand new instrument. Each Nash guitar is built by hand, so each one is completely unique.
All our guitars and basses are handcrafted in the USA by guitar and bass players.
We will not make something that we ourselves would not play. -Nashguitars-
