Robert Clothier in a Toque

Capsule is selling Nash relics.

I first read about these in ToneQuest Report. Billed as "Vintage goes affordable" they're new guitars which've undergone a considerable aging process, and still play and sound, well not like new, but like the classic its modelled on.

Nash explains that great care is taken to keep them completely operable, despite appearance, unlike the Fender custom shop. Still, it sorta reminds me of the designer ripped jeans fad which was just Macy's clerks with a pair of scissors. Aw, who'm I kidding, pre-aged jeans kick ass. And I can't keep from salivating over these Tele's. Although I think I'd opt for a less brazenly worked over model than the one shown here.
