    Just curious where you Nash players purchased your guitars?

    Saw a couple of sites that have one or two and some on order. The wait time on the 'on order' stock appears to be 6 weeks or more.

    Any tips on purchasing a Nash in terms of where and possible discounts from list price would be very helpful.

    Thank you in advance,

    dave

    They are hard to come by and getting harder all the time. I just happened to stumble into Rumble Seat music in Ithaca, NY right after they became a dealer. Never heard of a "Nash" before and didn't think much of the relicing, but I could not put that guitar down. My favorite strat ever. I thank God I got to play it or I never would've known.

    Also try Phil's Guitars.

    Dave,

    I just purchased a Fiesta Red Nash tele from Phil's Guitars.All i have to say is awesome.To get a Nash takes a lot of patience because they
    usually sell as fast as the dealers get them.As far as discounts go,good
    luck,you'll need it.

    +1 on www.supersoundmusic.com

    the 4 nashes that he got in late last week are all really, really resonant and lively.

    Plus brian is one of the best guys to deal with!

    They're in St. Louis and they are the largest Nash dealer in the country.

    Ask for Dave Hinson...he's the owner. Good guy. Very fair. Does trade-ins too.

    Hey Mike,

    They have quite a few in stock. S's and T's. Really warm and woody sounding. They have one T there that freaking barks like a Dawg! I think it has Voodoo's in it.

    Michael:

    I kind of have my eye on a T style that is available at one of the store links provided in this thread. The particular guitar has a rosewood fretboard. What is your take on the difference between rosewood and maple on a tele. Same as on a strat? I'm pretty partial to my strats that have rosewood boards.

    thanks for you info. Already emailed guitar showcase for stock. Website doesn't have much info.

    Totally dug your pink strat. I'd play that thing on stage in a heartbeat!

    Emailed them yesterday. They have one or two on order that I'd certainly buy, but the wait is like 6-8 weeks ... MAYBE!

    May have found one on-hand and in stock that might work. I'll keep you posted.

    thanks for the info. Did you get to play the sonic blue copy with the rosewood neck? I'm not familiar enough with teles to understand the difference between a rosewood or maple fretboard. Can you clue me in please? Thank you.

    My take is that Rosewood on Tele's are warmer and more buttery sounding, yet with that rear pickup position, Lookout! Thick and rich with mucho overtones. That is my take on an ideal Tele.

    Funnily enough, I tend to prefer Maple on my Strats.

    Yeah that one is a beauty isn't it?

    If you want a feel for a Tele with a rosewood neck and how it sounds you could try checking out some clips of the Live at Sierra Center Stage CD with Robben Ford and his brothers playing. He used his rosewood neck tele the whole time through a red knob twin. Personally I thought it sounded great.

    Oh and to keep this on subject, I got my Nash Strat the old fashioned way - directly from Bill when he still did that. ;)
