• Blackguard 0090 by Nacho Banoz

    Our price:

    For those unfamiliar with Nacho Banos, he’s considered one of the foremost experts on/students of Blackguard Teles in the world and his The Blackguard Book is considered the bible on the subject. Beyond all that, he’s one hell of a Blackguard builder and simply one of the nicest human beings you’ll ever talk to.
    So… here’s 0090 aka Abigail. The aging detail is simply MIND-BLOWINGLY gorgeous. She has vintage Broedcaster style pickups and a perfectly fitting, heavily aged “V” profile neck, just to push this baby that much further over the top. She sounds alive, resonant and deep unamped. Going through a tube amp…she can do it all from James Burton, Waylon Jennings, Kieth Richards, Bruce Springsteen, Merle Haggard, Brad Paisley and many many more.
