I was going to ask if the finish looked more like honey blonde vs. the butterscotch finish on the 52 RIOriginally posted by angler87
I think a Nash would be able to hang with a Nocaster pretty easily. It seems like his T-52 style guitars are becoming closer in finish to the Fender Nocasters as opposed to the Fender 52 Reissues (more honey blode than yellowish butterscotch). I have a Nash Custom Telecaster and its an excellent guitar. Prior to ordering it I held a Nocaster to get a feel of the neck shape. The fatback style neck I have on the Nash is almost identical.
Overall, Nash makes a great tele. Mine is just under 7 pounds, resonant, has a great finish, awesome relicing and sounds great
Aside from the "which guitar is better" question, you might want to consider that the going price of Cunetto-era relics has increased by about 25% over the past 3 years. I know nothing's definite with relatively new guitars, but the Cunetto relics seem a good bet to appreciate even more over time relative to, say, a Nash, or anything you might buy with the money from the price difference. They fulfill the two main requirements: 1. a limited supply (Vince C doesn't do them any more), and 2. they have an aura of being "better" than comparable instruments. (the aura, or perception, is all-important here)Originally posted by mjpisat
I love this guitar, but i have a lot of cash wrapped up in it. It plays like a dream and sounds great. Do you think a nash nocaster could hang with it? I'd be saving a lot of money
Agreed. If you love the guitar and you don't absolutely need the money, I'd hold onto it at least until I had played something I like better. I've heard and read too many tales of men who've sold their favorite guitar looking for something better and regretting it ever since.Originally posted by kingsleyd
And you did say that you love this guitar. That should count for something too.
