Thread: G. Nash Schecter fitted

  1. #1

    G. Nash Schecter fitted

    Hi folks,

    does any one here have an idea what "G. Nash" stands for?





    All hardware parts and neck of this early 80ies Strat are signed "Schecter".
    Tuning machines are Schaller.
    Body is propably ash and was originally clear painted.
    Can't find anything about it.
    I doubt it stands for "Graham Nash...".

    Have you contacted Schecter Guitar Research?
    800.660.6621
    info@schecterguitars.com

    I browsed thru their current catalog and "Vault" of old models, but didn't see anything... maybe someone else's custom using Schecter components?

    Yes, more than once, but never got any answer.

    Of course Schecter in it's beginnings was a pure parts / custom shop.
    So it is indeed possible that someone ("G. Nash"?) was allowed (or not) to build Strat copies with Schecter parts an put the contributer's name on the headstock, also if only after the prefix "fitted with...".

    Still Schecter must have been involved or at least informed in some way.

    I found this here.

    There could be some connection with Germany.
    Also the Schaller tunig machines could be an evidence...

    Whoopsie, just figured out that's Bill Nash, unless maybe it's a relative.

    Tom Anderson might know, since in the early days Tom was designing pickups for Dave. All those early Schecter tapped pickups were Tom's designs, afaik. I bump into Tom occasionally, and I'll ask next time I see him (if I remember).

    Uuh, that would be great :-)
    I'm carrying this question around since 1988...

    It might be just be a Grahan Nash model. In the early 80s they did custom Teles for Townshend, and subsequently came out with the PT model.

    Hi Albert,

    that's really cool we're getting closer :-))

    Rosenheim - I had already fancied it might have bavarian roots.
    In fact I bought mine in Munich in 1986 or 1987 (Eastside Music, Pariser Str.) or better said I swapped it 1:1 with my Rickenbacker 340.

    With your information I immediately started a little enquiry and I believe I've come another bit of the way already:

    Heinz Rebellius, journalist at the Gitarre & Bass magazine www.gitarrebass.de, immediately answered:

    "Dear Moritz,
    G. Nash was indeed a German company who in the early 80ies built guitars from prefabricated parts.
    Those had usually designs like Flying V., Stratocaster, Telecaster and Jazz Bass.
    For Fender like guitars they used partly Schecter parts but Far East material as well, depending on what was required and available.
    Gibson like models like the Flying V remind very much the contemporary Hoyer guitars so it was quite probable, Hoyer had let guitars build there as well.
    Unfortunately there aren't any documents about the company left, even the original name of the builder cannot be tracked.
    The G. Nash guitars had a very good reputation - have fun with yours!
    Best greetings from the Guitar & Bass editorial office..."


    Cheers,
    Moritz
