    If you contact the author directly (especially if you're in Europe) he might just have a few copies stashed. At least he used to have a few copies stashed.

    And Nacho Banos is a TDPRI forum member.

    The books were numbered for every Blackguard produced.
    So it won't ever be that way again.
    If thousands of people are e-mailing him everyday wanting a copy, then I'm sure he would reprint in some fashion or other.
    It's a fairly limited market and probably just about saturated for now.

    I bought two last year from Nacho directly (I'm in NY) also, he gigs here every year (nicest guy too). He signed them for me also. They used to sell here on the site posted by the OP for 99 bucks, I think I paid $135 ea. directly from Spain.
    I believe they're numbered from 0001 to 5555 or 5000 0r 5500 I don't remember.

    I would have loved to have been able to afford a copy. I see few things that I consider totally worth the money, but this book is one I would. Everyone speaks highly of it.

    Most high-quality vintage guitar book ever published, bar none. Second only to owning a blackguard ( and the ideal companion piece).

    It's an extraordinary book. Rigorous as you won't find many in the guitar world.
