This S-81 "shred-style" guitar features Dimarzio humbuckers and single coil in the middle for 5 incredible tonal options plus a push/pull tone knob for single coil action on the neck and bridge pickups! Nitro finish really lets this guitar breath! And how about that Creamsicle Orange finish! custom color only available on this model.

You play a bunch of preist, maiden, van halen and all that at home. You know you do! you know you'd love the heck out of this USA made relic shredder! dive bomb that Gotoh floyd all you want. stays in tune and sound truly HEAVY, or play it clean for hot funk and a variety of other styles.

About Manufacturer

If you’ve ever been lucky enough to play a great vintage guitar, you know how it feels to play a Nash guitar. Bill Nash creates instruments that replicate the greatest aspects of vintage guitars in a reliable, affordable package. Taking cues from some of the best specimens of sought-after guitars from decades past, Nash goes to extreme lengths to give their brand-new axes the sound, feel, and look of something that has been played for years and withstood the test of time. Period-correct parts, finishes, sounds, and incredibly detailed aging processes create a piece that will feel comfortable and familiar right out of the box. 

Some of the most popular Fender guitar and bass models are represented in the Nash Guitar lines, as well as a few classics from Gibson. For Fender-style guitars and basses, the instruments are assembled from the ground up with hand-selected wood parts and period-correct appointments. For Gibson-style instruments, brand-new Gibson USA guitars are sent to Nash where they are stripped of everything from hardware, electronics, and finish so that they are starting almost entirely from scratch with just the bare wood. Variable levels of relicing are applied to each guitar--from light, medium, heavy, to very heavy--however each instrument that leaves the shop will have the same standard of playability and reliability regardless of the level of aging. This is to say that, while one guitar may have been heavily reliced in the Nash shop, it will not perform any better or worse than one with lighter relicing, the difference will be in the look and feel of the instrument. 

Whether you are looking for a solid workhorse guitar, a stand-in for that irreplaceable piece you would never take on the road, or just want a taste of the magic that made some of history’s most  coveted American instruments, Nash Guitars will satisfy anyone who craves that vintage guitar experience.
