The Nash T-52 is a vintage tele model from Nash Guitars. Bill Nash designed the T-52 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 1952 Fender Telecaster
Not only does the T-52 look and feel like a vintage Tele, 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 T-52 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 level of wear and tear via an aging process.

About the Lollar Pickups in this guitar:
Charlie Christian (neck) Like its legendary namesake, this handmade neck pickup delivers a rich, deep tone with round top end and long sustain. The output is comparable to a P-90 or Imperial humbucker. While ideal for jazz players it also works well with moderate tube amp distortion. It's made with low resistance coil wound with 38-gauge wire — just like the original Charlie Christian pickups — along with a nickel plated blade pole piece and Alnico bar magnets.
The Lollar Special T (bridge) is a higher output version of the Vintage T Series Bridge with a rounder top end, a little more midrange, and more bottom end. Roll the tone control back a bit and get a somewhat convincing P-90/vintage humbucker tone. Flat pole design with graded Alnico 5 magnets. Vintage style cloth covered lead wire. Wax potted.
