The Nash JM-63 guitar is a model from Nash Guitars patterned after a 1963 Fender Jazzmaster. Bill Nash designed the JM-63 to create a custom shop quality guitar that isn't extremely expensive, yet still captures that great look, feel, and playability of a well played and loved 1963 guitar.
Not only does the Nash JM-63 look and feel like a vintage JM style guitar, it also features a number of popular modern appointments, such as Lollar handwound pickups, self lubricating nut, and Gotoh Vintage tuning keys. It has an alder body and a maple neck with rosewood fingerboard.
If anyone knows about building vintage guitars, it's Bill Nash! He has worked with a HUGE number of them for many years and has a great deal of knowledge about how a vintage guitar looks and feels. The aged control knobs, pickguards, dinged and scratched finish, and aged hardware make the guitar look old, but the modern techniques used to make the guitar ensure that it plays like a brand new instrument. Each Nash JM-63 is built by hand, so each one is completely unique. It features a rosewood fingerboard, an ash body, and Jason Lollar hand-wound pickups. The bridge is a high quality aged 14" Radius Roller Bridge, with a Buzz Stop Roller for improved Vibrato. The entire guitar is also given a level of wear and tear via an aging process.
