Well this one's amazing. It's got a huge amount of wear and tear and is one of the best playing guitars I've ever had. It's got mojo up the wazoo, incredible tone, and a chubby blackguard neck that feels great in your hand.

And what's really cool about this particular guitar is that it's Nachocaster #0002! That's right, a blackguard replica produced by Nacho Banos the master of casters. In my opinion, it's the best blackguard replica I've ever played or seen.

Thank you Nacho, you have done a wonderful thing here for people who love blackguards but don't want to sacrifice their life's savings to buy an original.

Nice!

I do hope the "I don't get relics" brigade stay away from this thread. But you know it will be bombarded with purile comments pretty soon.

Great work Nacho. Love it.

It looks "experienced" enough that it's likely to play itself, if it gets bored and lonely in the case at night...

It's dripping with hoodoo vibe. Nut made from a black cat bone?

Well, that one doesn't look like some kid with a belt sander did it! That one is not so much a "relic" as a "replica" and no-one knows more about older blackguards than Nacho. It's a true work of art.

I just went through Nacho's book and couldn't find the original though :?: Is there any more info?

Oh Yeah!

Poor Player! That is beautiful. If I remember correctly , you have some beautiful "real" blackguards! So I feel like we're in the same camp after owning a real one , Nachos guitars are the only ones that will do!!!!!

Congrats, it's beautiful and Nacho is a seriously gifted guy!!!
(what's up with him being so darn nice though!!)!:lol:

Wow!
I am one of the few people that find most blackguards kind of boring, but I have to say that Nacho must have spent many hours on that guitar. If it plays as good as it looks, then you have a fantastic guitar. Congrats!

Not to hijack the thread or to open a can of worms, BUT I have to ask...

it appears that there's no decal on the headstock...is that accurate?
Or maybe you don't want to say. I would guess that the easiest way to get around the decal issue is to leave it off...simulating an old guitar that the decal has disintegrated.

I have no problem with the 52 body date or the TG initials or Gloria signature inside. He provides an accurate replica. Some of the guitar-ettiquette notsies may not agree.

Congrats again!

He cant put a Fender decal on them cause Fender doesnt make them.

I see they are $4500

Id rather have one of these than a $4500 CS Fender
