    Hey all,

    We will be updating this thread with some semi-custom and full custom builds this year, as well as new custom options as they arise.

    After acquiring an International Distributor at Winter NAMM 2017, we are now able to ship anywhere outside of the USA or Canada for a flate $150 if you do not order a hardshell case. Shipping might be slightly more if you order a case.

    Semi-Custom build times are around 3 - 3 1/2 months, and USA Custom build times are around 4-6 months as of 2/5/17.

    We can build 7-string versions of any of our models via the Semi-Custom or USA custom shop. 25.5" Scale length is standard, but we can also do 27" or 28.5".

    You can check out all the options by perusing our site:
    www.balaguerguitars.com

    Your link is broken. The Jazzmaster style model is pretty sweet though.

    Dig all your stuff Joe, but that baritone is the best thing I've seen out of you yet. That's a monster and cool as hell.

    I'm really digging the Growler! I see one in my future. The semi-custom list is awesome. Is no pickup rings an off menu option or potential future one?
