    Yep, this is the best part of the book....from Leo's accounting totals to tiny little details about alloys and pin holes. Some folks want to study them for accuracy or vintage verification but some just like to nerd out for fun!

    Hey guys, Nacho does still have a few available. I ordered mine and it's on its way! :)
    Awesome guy to deal with, I can't wait to get my hands on the book!

    I ordered my book this Tuesday the 18th. It scheduled to arrive today via UPS international. The cost directly from Nacho was 160 Euros (approx. $177.00).

    It is truly a great book! I am lucky to have mine and I go over it all the time for reference or just to look at the pictures. When I was a kid I used to cut pictures of guitars out and save them especially out of Sears or Wards catalogs! This book is the other end of the rainbow!

    I paid $50 for the definitive illustrated history of the Ruger .22 automatic pistol, but that is the limit of my insanity.

    The thing that may not be obvious to those who haven't spent time with the book... it's worth every penny of the $160, $175 or so. I mean in printing costs alone. Regardless of topic, this outshines most any other coffee-table style book, and at the same time the information packed within outdoes anything else published on the topic.

    I can see just not wanting to spend so much on any book, or perhaps your Telecaster obsession isn't that ... obsessive... yet. Just realize the value is there. At the stock price (not the $500 ebay stuff) you're not paying for 'mojo', or collectibility.

    It's just a damn fine book.

    I ordered a copy yesterday. Waiting to hear back to confirm my order. It took a few days to hear back when i initially emailed him to inquire about ordering it so i am not too concerned yet. Cant wait to check it out.
