You can't get more vintage than this: This Nacho is a replica of the first broadcaster prototype that saw the light of day in Leo Fender's workshop in 1949. Nacho founder Nacho Bano is considered a meticulous guitar historian, who doesn't leave out any detail of the originals. Therefore, most of the specs for the 1949 are based on meticulous research in the history books, even though Nacho has taken enough artistic freedom with some features to make the 1949 practical for today. The four-piece Hollowbody is made of old Oregon spruce and is glued exactly like the original in sandwich-manner. A neck with a grippy D-profile and 9.5" fretboard radius is screwed to it. In total the construction weighs only 2,7kg. The only pickup used is a P90 in mid-50s style, which gives the guitar an incredibly crisp rhythm sound. Even with more distortion, the Nacho copes excellently and turns out to be a true rock'n'roll beast, if you give it the spurs in terms of sound and playing technique. The ultimate character guitar!
