    If anyone has compared a Nash JM-63 Jazzmaster against a Danocaster Jazzmaster, I'd be interested in build quality, parts used, playability, etc. Thx.

    I don't think there's much comparison. A Dano will win 9/10 times.

    I own Nash and Danocaster guitars. I think Nash guitars get a bit of a beating. They're some of the best sounding guitars I've tried, and their relicing has gotten a lot better. That being said, a Danocaster doesn't feel of look like a relic, it looks and feels like a 50 year old instrument. Tonally I will have to say a Nash is up there, but in terms of feel no way. Danocaster all the way.

    Ive had both.. Danocaster's are by far the nicest playing and feeling necks of the both. Also a Dano is more of a less produced guitar.. Dan makes his guitars with attention to detail all the way to the last screw.. :aok

    i've owned bunches of Nash's, but never played one of his JM's.
    I've owned exactly one Dano, and it was a JM.

    For the most part JM's just aren't for me.

    Taking all of that into account: I'd happily own either. Nash's tend to win for me at this point because i've used them for years now and they are more readily available also. If you're shopping used, you can get a Nash a heck of a lot cheaper, and sometimes cheaper new, depending on the model.

    I'd happily try more Dano's. I can't make a full report yet, but i would love to try his Teles/Esquire sometime and make a true comparison. But for now I'm a Nash guy.

    cheers

    Danocaster, and it's not even close.
