    With a new year, comes new options/models/pedals and more. Please swing by our booth 3151 @ Winter NAMM 2018 if you'll be there and say hi!

    One of the most exciting parts of 2018 so far, is the release of The Astra.

    My take on a classic singlecut design but with modern construction and appointments. The actual shape of the body is slightly offset which lends added comfort when playing. Looking beyond the shape of the body you will see a custom carved top that we designed specifically for this model, as well as an extended heel joint cutaway which allows easy access to the higher register!

    Available as a Standard, Deluxe, and Semi-Custom model in multiple scale lengths, wood options, finishes, etc.

    Beyond that, we are now offering Multiscale options for all models, which you can read more about here: http://www.balaguerguitars.com/multiscale-options/

    Finally, we are releasing our Preamp/Overdrive pedal, The BG Drive, at NAMM next week. More info on that soon:

    Joe, I do not need another OD pedal. WHY did you just do this to me?

    That Astra is sick! Solid SC design, kudos on that. Are you still thinking about offering a thinner neck profile option this year?

    Astra looks good. I’m very picky about design, and you’ve done a good job IMHO with your models looking unique but not strange.

    Thanks! Yep, I'll have my new "Thin D" neck shape on two guitars at NAMM. One on a new Artist Sig and another of a new 7 string.

    We've been slammed since Winter NAMM, but we have quite a lot in the works. To summarize:

    1. The Astra Singlecut model is now available - visit our website for more info.

    2. We are launching an E-Builder for our website so you can see what your Semi-Custom guitar will look like in real-time before placing your order (graphic representation only).

    3. We've added a few more multiscale options, wood options (Purpleheart, Wenge, etc.), and Pickup options!

    4. We're running a Customer Appreciation Sale from May 4th until May 25th, which includes the following:
    - $100 OFF the base price for ALL Semi-Custom models
    - FREE Gig Bag upgrade for ALL Semi-Custom models
    - Any Semi-Custom order placed during the event will be entered to win a 20% Cashback reward on their order
    - 5% OFF ALL Merch

    Sorry for being MIA guys! My hope is to be more active here and other forums into the Spring/Summer.
