This Nash T-52 resembles an early 1950s Telecaster and is modestly aged (level 1) and has the appropriate single ply black pickguard and "Butterscotch Blonde" to match. The Lollar pickups sound very appropriate. Purists will recall that early 1950s Telecasters had a three way switch but that it only activated either pickup independently followed by a "mud" or rhythm setting with a tone rolloff in the third position. Fortunately, this guitar has been wired with the more conventional/modern Telecaster wiring. Comes with a hardshell case.
