This is the only left handed Nacho Blackguard from 2021. The Nacho Guitar Blackguards are the best reissue Teles out there – Fender Custom Shop can’t touch this quality, nor the historical accuracy. These always sell quickly!
The wood used for the body is the same Golden (Southern) swamp ash as used in the original Blackguard Teles. As Nacho Banos states: “A local lumber warehouse supplier had a stock of LOUISIANA SWAMP ASH, hand selected for low density to make musical instruments. Its the best wood I have ever found….I believe this new batch is simply put, our best ever!”
