    Hello TGPers. I just bought a 2007 Bill Nash Tele from Mesa Boogie in Hollywood and wanted to share some pics. This thing plays like a dream, and sounds sweet too...

    It has:::

    A nice round "U" neck
    Lollar T-Bridge
    Lollar Imperial Neck
    Medium Relic
    Color: Charcoal Frost (Nash emailed me calling it "very rare")

    The relic job on it (imo) is beautiful. I played it today at a gig and am overall very happy with it.

    Here are all the pictures I took of it... sorry some are blurry/dark.

    How's the balance between the Lollar Imperial and the Lollar Vintage T ?

    I am SO glad that no store around here stocks those things. I'd buy 10.

    They work great together - I have a butterscotch Nash with the same PU's. The bridge is a little hot and the neck is a little under wound so they match output perfectly - and sound terrific.

    Agree with English Jim on the pickups. The middle position is my favorite sounding position (it often is on teles and pauls alike). The deep resonance and bass response from the Imperial makes the lower strings sing while the Vintage T p/u does it's thing with the high tele twang for the top strings.

    Sheer beauty. I will record some clips and post them if there is any interest in hearing the difference in the p/u's clean and dirty.

    OK - what's the rare thing with it? Is it just the colour? Not being sarcastic - just wondering - since the title says very rare.

    Crosse, it is rare because of the color yes. A charcoal frost Nash is hard to come by, in fact (as stated) I cannot find another made in that finish (new or used).

    In addition, the thick U neck is rare as it is not a C neck (std on these T-63 style guitars) or a V neck (also available on Nash teles).

    I titled the thread as such because Bill Nash (the "assembler" as it were) responded to an email regarding this particular guitar calling it "very rare."

    So, there you go. ; )
