    Just got a pic of my Nash that's shipping this week.

    Firemist Silver Metallic. Top and bottom binding. Lollar underwound Imperial in the neck and Lollar Special in the bridge.

    WooHoo

    Killer looking axe, Almost looks sonic blue in the pic.
    Always liked FSM as a color. :AOK
    Congratulations, post a tone report when you've had it for a spell.

    Thanks man. More pics and review to come. Hope to have it in time for a big weekend of gigging this weekend.

    It is hard to get a good grasp of the color from the pic. The flake in the metallic relfects all kinds of greys, blues and greens. It's tough to get a glimpse of the binding too. Top and bottom.

    Great looking guitar. Almost looks like an old faded Inca Silver finish.

    That's a very tasteful ageing on that axe - nice!

    I'm a fellow Nash owner (mine is a custom order s-style).

    Enjoy!

    Cool guitar! I'm not usually onw for pearloid pickguards, but it looks great on that guitar. Between the color, binding, and pickguard it's a killer look. Congrats!

    Thanks bro! I'm not usually a fan of that pickguard either, but I saw a pic a while back of a similar idea on a custom body guitar and I thought it looked pretty cool. The aging on the pearloid pickguard matches the binding color really well.

    I'll post more pics once it's in hand.

    That's pretty hot looking. Has a nice "lived in" look to it, as well. Love the binding with that colour.

    What's the radius?

    Thanks Mighty.

    9.5 on the radius.


    More pics and a detailed review to come after I spend some quality time with her.
