Anyone Tried Nash "relic" basses

Older is better here. If Kebo has to explain, you wouldn't understand.

Hey Mark, I was wondering where you've been, so you were somewhat missed [smilie=icon_mrgreen.gif]

The tug bar should have one screw. Jim Cobb has a Natural P they call the "Deacon", that is incredible.

The finger rest, tugbar, whatever you call it, should be the single screw, more arched, maple (natural or painted) variety. At least that is the first thing that I noticed once I stopped drooling over it. BTW, GR Guitars carries repro unfinished maple ones, as well as correctly shaped ebony ones. With the ebony ones you can choose either phillips head or slot screw.

i tried a 60's p/bass relic at rumbleseat music in ithaca ny.

pros: priced right,has the cool vintage vibe + *look (?)
leave the old basses home and take this to the bar gigs.

it was a little heavy,the neck was more like like a 70's p
the bass needed a setup. in defense of the builder it was shipped to the store during the damp winter weather and probably got knocked out of whack in shipping,(the store should have tweaked it before putting it out). the A string buzzed like crazy, enough that i just put it back on the wall.

tone is subjective so you have to check that out yourself.
to early to tell about resale value but in my experience instruments like this don't have much return if you try to sell it off.

* i thought it was way "over-reliced". 25 yrs ago you couldn't give away a guitar in that shape,it would have been considered a beat up $100 used bass they have a 57p and some nash guitars in store now
