Nash S-57 Guitar, Black Heavy Relic
Serial Number: HBM-247
Weight: 7 lbs 12 oz
The Nash S-57 is one of Nash Guitars top vintage models. Bill Nash designed the S-57 to create a guitar that isn't extremely expensive, yet still captures that great look, feel, and playability of a well played and loved 1957 Fender Stratocaster.
Not only does the S-57 look and feel like a vintage Strat, 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 S-57 look old, but the modern techniques used to make the guitar ensure that it plays like a brand new instrument. Each Nash S-57 is built by hand, so each one is completely unique. It features a maple fingerboard, an ash body, and Jason Lollar hand-wound pickups. The bridge is made from vintage parts, and the entire guitar is given a light level of wear and tear via a relicing process.
