The Wayfarer is the newest addition to the Nashguitars family. It was inspired by the symmetrical lines and distinct colors of the automotive industry in the late 50s and early 60s, as well as the versatility afforded by a three humbucker configuration. Though it was designed to be unique in appearance, the Wayfarer maintains the aesthetic feel and playability Nashguitars is known for.
This build features a semi-hollow alder body, providing significant weight relief, as well as the ability to offer two different pickguard treatments. The "closed" pick guard gives a clean solid-body look, while the "open" pickguard provides a thinline appearance.
Most semi-hollow guitars are constructed with a laminated top that not only impacts the tone but diffuses sustain and pulls energy away from the center mass of the instrument. Our unique pickguard treatments provide the advantages of the semi-hollow body while maintaining the tone and sustain of a solid body.
The Wayfarer is not only straightforward but is extremely versatile as well. We have paired the three humbuckers with a push/pull coil tap tone knob and a five way selector switch.
