About Nacho:

Ignacio Banos has had a life long passion for country music and Americana in general! He first started collecting Fender guitars while studying in Boston in the late 80s. With the advent of the internet he quickly became well known on forums for his immense Telecaster knowledge. This led him to write The Blackguard Book. An all encompassing book about early 50s Teles. He started building guitars in 2010 based on his personal guitar collection. His small team of craftsmen puts out about 15 to 20 guitars quarterly. Everyone from Billy Gibbons to Julian Lage have been leaving their black guards at home and opting instead to hit the road with these fantastic Nacho Casters!
