    That's what my translator kicked out. If memory serves, that book is out of print, hard to find, and pretty expensive when one actually comes up.

    Regarding the BlackGuard Book -

    As far as I know there was only the one original printing run of the the book. I purchased a copy from Nacho back about a year (or so) ago. He still had some more copies of the book then, too.

    Nacho was also doing a special thing with some of his blackguard Tele builds. Each Blackguard book has a serial number similar to the numbers on the early Fender Telecasters. He was stamping a number on the bridge of some builds that matched up with the serial number of a BlackGuard book, and including the book with the guitar as matched set, which I thought was a very cool thing ;).

    If you are looking to buy a copy of the book, don't try going through that old link. Instead, just email Nacho directly. I ended up having a pretty involved email correspondence with him over a period of a couple of weeks and found that he is just a real straight-up guy who definitely loves his involvement with the early Teles and is eager to share it :).


    Best Regards,
    Geo.

    That's great, I'm glad it worked out for ya!

    I was expecting a regular old book, so when it arrived, it was a real surprise. Not only does it have great information and photos like I hoped, but it's exceptional in it's size and quality. Even the thickness of the paper and the quality of the binding was a surprise.

    I'm just an unrepentant book-lover :) !!!

    There is something about holding a book in my hands and turning the pages that just isn't there when I look at a computer screen.


    Best Regards,

    FYI - There is an alternate email listed in this TGP thread -

    https://www.thegearpage.net/board/i...uard-book-which-is-readily-available.1805396/

    If I recall, I think I PayPal'ed Nacho with the email address that I provided above. But I think that I originally emailed him at the email address referenced over on The Gear Page thread.
