    I don't know much about K-line guitars at all, I have done a search on the boards and couldn't really find anything. Does anybody have one? How would it compare to a nash? I am looking to get a lightly reliced Tele-style guitar. How much do they go for? If anyone could let me know and maybe say what they think of their own K-line guitar it would be awesome!
    thanks

    You need to do some more searching as there is a fair amount of info here and I'm pretty certain the owner of K-line posts here.

    EDIT: In fact K-Line is his user name.

    EDIT #2: Perhaps this thread will help you: http://www.thegearpage.net/board/showthread.php?t=320580&highlight=k-line

    Or try using the advanced search with the word "k-line" (Must include the quotes) in the keywords box. Do a search for thread titles and/or posts depending on whether or not you need to see just threads about K-line or any post that contains the word "k-line".

    Priced and configured similar to Nash guitar, excellent all around. I have a strat and a tele, both excellent instruments, convincingly relic'd and well set up.

    I have two strats and I much prefer them to Nash. The relic job, fit and finish is much more realistic. The last one I bought was about a year ago, but they are around $1500 or so I believe. I gig only my KLines anymore, I love 'em.

    I have a K-Line tele that is phenomenal. The setup is perfect and the neck feels awesome.

    Chris is a really nice guy to boot and made my tele to my exact specs. The finish is great and the guitar sounds great as well. It makes me put away any guitar that I feel has a slight imperfection (I have a few like this).

    I have a K-Line Strat and it is a keeper. Chris is a very cool guy and I can assure you that he will build you exactly what you want.

    Chris does amazing work for sure!!! Check out the dealers emporium at the bottom home page. He usually has some stuff up. I think there may actually even be a tele and jazzmaster up right now.

    I own a K-Line S-Style and T-Style. Both are awesome guitars. They are not mass produced, like Nash, but are better than any Nash guitar that I've played.

    Chris is a great guy too.

    I'll echo that Chris is a great guy and has a special touch to what he does. His guitars just FEEL right.

    I have 3 K-lines. 2 strats and a tele.

    I've never had 3 of any brand of guitar....ever.

    Got a tele, made to my specs with binding on top and the body relief on back. Very happy with it and have been playing it exclusively since it arrived! Fit an finish is excellent and sound is outstanding! Have never played a Nash so I cannot help there but you can not go wrong with a K-Line!

    Sorry, no non-relic nor SS frets anymore! The last two killed my tools and I vow to never do again! Sorry.

    I have one of K-Line's early builds, and it's one of the best Teles I've ever played. Really good builder, and I think the quality vs. expense is a little better han Nash (I've played 3 different Nash teles). The other thing I've noticed, and may be because there are fewer K-Lines available, but I rarely see K-Lines for sale. Check the dealer emporium, he posts some of his guitars ther (you can a,lso request a custom build, to your specs)

    My K-Line:
