Daddy-O Grande, guitarist for Los Straitjackets, has tablature for sale on his website:
"High Quality sheet music with Guitar Tablature available now as a PDF download. I transcribed and wrote this tablature myself, so I can absolutely guarantee it's accuracy. This is EXACTLY the way I play these songs on my solo records, as well as with Los Straitjackets.
Each song comes as a separate piece of printable sheet music, with it's own cover graphic, a small anecdote about each song and many playing tips."
