Nash T-Master Guitar, Charcoal Frost, Bigsby, Neck Humbucker
Bill Nash designed the T-Master to create a guitar that isn't extremely expensive, yet still captures that great look, feel, and playability of a well played and loved guitar.
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, pick guards, body binding, 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-Master is built by hand, so each one is completely unique. It features a rosewood fingerboard, an Alder 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.

The Lollar Imperial 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.
About the Lollar Pickups in this guitar:
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.
