The Nash S-63 is a vintage strat model from Nash Guitars. Bill Nash designed the S-63 to create a custom shop quality guitar that isn't extremely expensive, yet still captures that great look, feel, and playability of a well played and loved 1963 Fender Stratocaster.
Not only does the S-63 look and feel like a vintage Stratocaster, it also features a number of popular modern appointments, such as Lollar handwound pickups and Gotoh Vintage tuning keys.
If anyone knows about building vintage guitars, it's Bill Nash! He has worked with a HUGE number of them for many years and has a great deal of knowledge about how a vintage guitar looks and feels. The aged control knobs, pickguards, dinged and scratched finish, and aged hardware make the guitar look old, but the modern techniques used to make the guitar ensure that it plays like a brand new instrument. Each Nash S-63 is built by hand, so each one is completely unique. It features a rosewood fingerboard, an ash or alder body, and Jason Lollar hand-wound pickups. The bridge is a Gotoh Vintage Tremolo, and the entire guitar is given a level of wear and tear via an aging process.

About the Lollar Pickups in this guitar:
The Lollar Imperial Humbucker Bridge captures the airy top end, tight lows, balanced midrange, and complex overtones of the best original PAF pickups. In reviews it is consistently given high marks for its balanced frequency response. Unbalanced coils keep the bottom end tight for the amount of fullness the pickups have, overtones build after each note is played. Alnico 2 magnets in the neck & alnico 5 magnets in the bridge are de-gaussed to specific levels, unique to the neck and bridge positions.
