With its instantly recognisable body shape, extremely stable tremolo, and three single coil pickups, Nash’s S Model guitars are a modern update of a true classic. While paying homage to the near perfect original design, Nash incorporates a few changes to update both playability and sound. They add a higher output bridge pickup and a much needed tone control. Together, these modifications provide enhanced flexibility and overall balance.
As far as Bill Nash is concerned, the S57 is the definitive iteration of this ubiquitous body style. A hand selected ash body, one piece maple neck, and 1-ply white pickguard give it a timeless appeal.

This Nash S57 is in great playing condition. It has a heavy relic finish with all the marks, dings and dents that would naturally imply. Although it has actually been only lightly used, it does not look that way!
It has a great feeling one piece neck with big frets in excellent condition. The flatter radius board adds to the ease of playing, and the notes are clean and clear in all positions.
The quality of components, fit & finish & attention to detail is right up there with heavily relic versions of other brands’ custom shop guitars. It is a great sounding guitar that is a delight to play.
Comes with a non-original hard case in OK condition.
