Meet The Makers – Balaguer Guitars

I know how many of you are gear nerds, so with Meet The Makers I speak to the people behind the brands try to get to know them better.

This week, I speak to Joe Balaguer from Balaguer Guitars.

Meet The Makers - Balaguer Guitars

1. What are the core values of your brand?

High quality, affordability, and exceptional customer service!

2. What do you think sets you apart from everyone else?

We approach guitar design from a traditionalist’s perspective but we choose to fuse vintage inspiration with modern appointments. So mostly all of our models have a vintage vibe from the outside, but once you play one you’ll soon realize it is a very well-thought-out modern guitar.

Pairing all that above with the fact that we offer numerous product lines built in collaboration with factories overseas who share our outlook on high quality, were able to offer our unique designs at various price points.

3. Are there any design features you are especially proud of?

Yes! Each model is designed with ergonomic intent. Meaning you’ll see a sculpted heel, deep cutaway, extended arm contour, and a slew of other design choices focused around comfort and ergonomics.

4. Where do you see the industry going in the future?

I believe the industry is becoming more aware of how high quality & affordability can go hand in hand and how important that is to the consumer. More companies are pushing the envelope with what can be offered and for how much. It is a great time to be a musician!

5. Is there a guitarist you’d love to work on a new product with?

We really enjoy working with our customers on their semi custom builds and ensuring they get exactly what they’re envisioning. That’s why our online guitar configurator has been so helpful. Beyond our customers, we love working with touring artists that are out there trying to make a living doing what they love. So I suppose there isn’t one guitarist we are gunning for, but more so that we’re open to having a dialogue with whoever may have interest.
