    We've been working on these with a developer for about 2 1/2 - 3 months now and they're finally LIVE:

    Post the builds you come up with!

    It's a cool idea. There's a few things that stand out to me though:
    - I couldn't find a way to go back to the guitar/bass choice.
    - The scale length doesn't change in the visualization.

    Awesome app.

    Really need to have some pickguards available on tele shapes though! And what's the deal with the guitars themselves? They're built in china or korea and then go through your shop for QC?

    I do kinda wish there were more options in that semi-custom kind of area. There's this, and Kiesel if you don't hate them, and..... I don't know of any others.

    it's like a carbon copy of halo's builder/configurator (which is a good thing, that's a pretty robust visualizer/configurator). It's nice to actually see what the headstocks look like, that was always my biggest complaint about your previous setup, that I had to hunt down which the headstock shapes and figure out which was which.
    I've been tempted by a thicket for quite some time. this is definitely not helping my GAS :lol:

    Can make some cool stuff with this though. I'd play the bajeezus out of something like this:

    Bit of a Dingwal ripoff at that point, but still.

    You just have to go back to the homepage, so just go back to www.balaguerguitars.com

    Yeah the scale length change isn't something we included in the visualization, only the fret count.

    The Semi-Custom series is built in South Korea and then QC'd/Setup/Shipped from our shop here in Pennsylvania.

    Yeah the software developer we found also built their configurator and a few others. Glad you dig it dude!

    @JoeGuitar717 this is a very dangerous tool you've created. Temptation is high...

    None of the guitar designs spoke to me, but the bass design...oh yes! My-Balaguer-Custom-Guitar(2).jpg
    I love this, inlays on fret 21 and 24 are missing though. Is that an error in the builder or would it really be built like this? A bit weird to not have inlays on those frets in my opinion
