    I’m out of the game getting pre cbs Tele. They’ve just gone crazy. So I’m eyeing a Nacho broadcaster. I’ve had several tell me his stuff is as close to vintage as one can get. He also apparently makes strats but haven’t read much about them. Anyhow, I’d welcome any input on the Nachos! Thanks !

    I hadn't heard of those before, went to his page, and now you're my enemy. I thought I finally had GAS beaten. Quit squandering my kids' inheritance!! :mad:

    I had a Nacho for several years. Best telecaster I ever had. Better than a vintage 1960 I had. Nacho is the living expert on these guitars and his work reflects that status. If I had the chance to buy another, I would not hesitate.

    If you join his mailing list you'll get his newsletter a couple of times a year with listing of his available guitars, exhaustively photographed. The most amazing guitar porn I know of.

    Best of the best, and priced accordingly.

    I've only ever heard great things about his guitars. In fact, Nacho is the reason I got into building my own guitars to begin with. I only wish I could've gotten on board and bought his book! Missed the boat on that one... I'm hoping he releases a PDF version some day.

    I didn't realize he had any available? Last I heard, he didn't have a waiting list.....you just had to get his notifications, and then respond with your money. If you were first to reply, you got it. Otherwise, wait for the next notification.
    Personally, that doesn't appeal to me. If I ever decided my own #1 wasn't good enough, I'd contact Ron Kirn or Bob Logan. But good luck.

    Went to Nacho's site and, unless I'm missing something, which is very, very possible, don't see any prices. Do you have to join "the club" to get prices??

    EDIT TO ADD: Never mind, looking a little deeper, seems like his prices are more than a regular production CS model but not quite as much as a Masterbuilt....correct me if I'm wrong.
