So, in case you're a bit confused about all the Tele styles that Nash Guitars offer, we totally get it. Lots of letters and numbers. What do they all mean? Well, we've compiled this list to assit you in narrowing down the Nash guitar you're looking for. What you'll find is that it's not quite as confusing as it may seem. Some of the models are not all that different at all from the others. We'll do out best to make it as easy as possible to understand.
The Nash Tele body models are as follows:
E-52 - With a single bridge pickup, this model is patterned after a 1952 Fender Esquire. The neck will always be maple, and the pickguard will always be 1 ply black. Other than that, the Nash E-52 can be highly customized with just about any classic color, and upgraded with double binding, a bigsby, or matching headstock. It typically comes with an Ash body, but Alder can be specified.
T-52 - This model is designed after a 1952 Telecaster. Like the E-52, the Nash T-52 neck will always be maple, and the pickguard will always be 1 ply black. Other than that, it can be highly customized with just about any classic color, and upgraded with a bigsby, matching headstock, or even a humbucker in the neck position. It typically comes with an Ash body, but Alder can be specified.
T-57 - This model is Nash's take on the 1957 Telecaster. The neck will always be maple, and the body typically comes with an Alder body, but Ash can be specified. You can choose from all the classic colors, and several pickguards. Upgrades include double binding, humbucker in the neck position, matching headstock, Boat Neck profile, and a Bigsby.
T-63 - So, in our opinion, this is where is can get a little confusing. :) With the exception of having an 8 screw pickguard as opposed to the 5 screw pickguard, The T-63 is exactly the same guitar as the T-57, except with more options. You can get a Maple or Rosewood fretboard, and all the colors and options are available.
TC-63 - This model is essentially the T-63, but with a double bound body. We love the look of a double bound tele, so this model is one of our favorites.
T-2HB - This model is Nash's Tele body with all the available upgrade and colors, but it instead has a double humbucker configuration.
TK-54 - The Nash TK-54 is modeled after Keith Richards' famous butterscotch blonde "Micawber" stage tele and comes with a Boat Neck profile. In reality, this is really just a T-52 with a Humbucker Neck upgrade and a Boat Neck. Since this is the case, Bill Nash is no longer offering it as a TK-54. It's just going to be a T-52 with a Humbucker Neck upgrade. That'll be easier!
T-68 Paisley - The Nash T-68 Paisley is actually a very impressive guitar. It's Nash's take on a 1968 Pink Paisley telecaster and the story of how he did it is very cool. Read more here: http://www.humbuckermusic.com/products/nash-t68-guitar-paisley
T-69 Thinline - This model is patterned after a 1969 Telecaster Thinline. All the classic colors and pickguards are available, as well as double binding, Bigsby, etc. As a side note, this guitar can be custom ordered with a mahogany body.
TC-72 - This model is designed after a 1972 Telecaster Custom with the Wide Range neck Humbucker and Tele Bridge Pickup. All the typical colors and pickguards are available.
T-72DLX - This model is patterned after a 1972 Telecaster Deluxe, which is like the Custom, but with dual Wide Range pickups. Like the Custom, all the colors and upgrades are available.
T-72 Thinline - This model is based on the 1972 Telecaster Thinline with the dual Wide Range Humbuckers. Very, very cool guitar! All the color and pickguard options are available.
Foil - This model is a vintage tele with Nash's own twist.
Inspired by Lollar's Gold Foil Single Coil Pickups, Nash has created a
very unique Tele design that is in a class of its own. We really dig
the Nash Gold Foil guitars!
