Whenever I sit down to play her for five minutes, half an hour passes


Nacho- Your relic work is extraordinary. I am now the proud owner of a Nachocaster and my guitar collection is complete.


I have received the guitar and it is an exceptional build - it plays and feels better than my all original pre-CBS


I still can’t get my head around the quality of the finish and the tone…my God...


Nacho you have a little bit of Clarence Leo Fender, Tadeo Gomez, & the rest of the original crew flowing through your veins.
