Nash Tele TK-54
This is a 2007 Nash TK-54; some people call this guitar the "Keef" model because of the Lollar humbucking pickup in the neck position. This guitar produces some very soft clean tones and spike like treble tones depending on which pickup you choose. The body is a one piece which makes a nice solid platform to build upon. This is a well detailed guitar and it's fun to play! Of course this sounds especially well through a Fender amp or others like it. I tested it on a Carr Rambler and it sounded superb. The Lollar neck Imperial humbucker is pushing 7.0 ohms while the Lollar T-series bridge pickup is pushing about 8.0 ohms. I measured the pickups and that data is dead on accurate. If I could find any fault on this guitar it would have been the surface of the back of the neck; the neck surface felt like like it was sanded with 200 grit sandpaper and left roughed up. I went over the surface with 400 and then stepped it up to 1500 and it feel more to my liking - smooth. Ya'll need to try one of these and play it loud!
