In the physical world we are Bend Guitar Den, in Bend Oregon. Oregon’s Exclusive Nash Dealer. We have 25 Nash Guitars in stock at all times. If you’re in the area visit us at our riverfront location in Bend and hang out in our Nash Players Lounge. Feel free to call us to discuss this guitar.
This guitar is intense. The first of a collectors edition issued by Nash. It is perfect in every way. Fit, finish, quality of the Rosewood and Ash. It is rich sounding, vibrant and resonant. This is #3 of only 10 that will be issued. Make no mistake, this is a collectors guitar in every way and cannot be ordered. Only 10 will ever exist, and as they expire, that number will just get smaller. Each of these is hand built and air brushed by Bill Nash himself.
Brand New 2018 Bill Nash Cowboy #3 tele. Beautiful dark Rosewood neck. Hand wound Lollars. Light resonant Ash body with Braided Leather binding, carved leather pickguard and cowboy airbrush motif by Bill. Made in the USA at Nash Manufacturing in Olympia Washington. Perfect Player, perfect guitar. Amazing tone. Beautiful frets, crazy resonant. Perfectly balanced. Very powerful, very smooth, great punch and separation with these Lollars. And nothing plays better than an aged Bill Nash guitar. This is how Leo meant his guitars to play, feel and sound. Perfect set-up. Great tone.
You have to experience it to believe how comfortable it is to play an expertly aged guitar. And Bill Nash is the expert. Only high end components. All USA made. I have never played a guitar that is set-up as nicely as a Nash when it arrives in the store, and this includes Gibsons, Rickenbackers, and American made Fenders. Beautiful cloth wiring, very disciplined, no sloppy soldering, precise, accurate and sturdy.
Great wood. Medium C neck, dead-straight.
Nice full sounding, very powerful, very articulated Lollars.
This guitar has great resonance and you forget what great resonance is on an electric when you haven’t heard it in awhile. You will never find a guitar this resonant off the wall at Guitar Center, or through the mail from Musician’s Friend. A combination of the wood that Nash hand-selects, the very thin coat of nitrocellulose lacquer, a properly seated neck pocket, and the appropriate density of the woods used. Combine this with the Lollars and you really have a match made in heaven. Finally a guitar that sounds and plays like the originals did in the early 60′s. This is a guitar that can last you a lifetime, and just get better over the years.
Includes Original Hard Shell Case.
We are a brick and mortar guitar store and Nash Dealer. The guitar is brand new (well you know) in the case, never displayed and includes the full Nash warranty.
If you don’t see what you want here, we can custom order your Nash Guitar build exactly how you want it. Just call the store.
