The Nash T-57 is a vintage tele model from Nash Guitars. Bill Nash designed the T-57 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 1957 guitar.
Not only does the T-57 look and feel like a vintage T style guitar, it also features a number of popular modern appointments, such as Lollar handwound pickups, self lubricating nut, 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-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 a high quality aged Gotoh 3 Brass Compensated Saddle made from top shelf materials, 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 Vintage T (neck) has a full bodied midrange, clear top end, sounds full clean and will break up an amp moderately. It's wound with larger diameter wire for less compression than typical tele neck pickups. Alnico 5 magnets. Vintage style cloth lead wire. Wax potted.
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.
