Dig this but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t concerned about spending this kind of coin on an up and coming brand/builder because of resale value if I didn't totally gel with it (plus I might be the only one that likes that config :lol: ).

I don’t have the coin yet (still selling some other gear) so I have time to think about this, a Growler or an Explorer. A used Explorer is currently my safest bet but I’ve never been all that safe so... Man I dig this though.


I ordered a "semi-custom" (I put that in quotes because I consider it completely custom - Joe had no problem entertaining my wacky ideas) instrument from Joe that cost me over $1,500 without ever having played one of his guitars before, based entirely on his reputation and word of mouth from players here that I totally respect. Also, just speaking with Joe personally really sold me. What a great guy!

I'd be lying if I said the wait wasn't killing me though :rofl: this is my first custom guitar order, ever.

Joe, still waiting for you to PM me some preview pics ;)

Dude get on the editor and mock it up as close as you can! I wanna see what you picked!

So it took me a few to get down to doing this. Not sure if I went too far with the binding or purple led fretlights :whistle:

A) You can never go too far, and B) with a guitar like that, you cannot apologize for it ~ gotta go all out. :D

At first I thought, cool another dude ripping on Fenders and Gibsons....but taking a look.

Its all pretty original designs inspired by iconic guitars and its a nice change from the same old shit we have all had since the 50s.


Good stuff.

I am VERY close to ordering semi-custom Archetype.

I’ll probably put in a call with a few questions, but I’ll post them here too:

What is typical wait time?

I only want one volume knob....no tone. Is that possible?

Can you get Jumbo frets?

Since my dream guitar has been a tremonti PRS for a while now, I figured I'd do that style in Balaguer form. Not sure if I'd go FR or trad trem bridge on it. The trem arm on the mockup just looks way to long to me, maybe I'm just miscalculating where it should be in my head. Otherwise, my goal next year is to convince the wife I need this guitar.

Has anyone compared the Comfy C with the Thin D? I am thinking the Thin D is the way to go, where I love the thinness of my Jackson necks.

I’m glad everyone is digging this. Was a very long and tedious process but the end product really turned out nice. Was great working with Joe.

4-6 months but we're trying to get that down. Yep we can do that, just pick the normal configuration and just let us know in the order notes what you want. We only use medium-jumbo right now for our Semi-Custom stuff.

I spent a few hours (yes, hours :lol: ) playing on this thing today. I really want a Balaguer but won't be able to buy one if I lose my job for wasting working hours on their online builder. So that's a bit of a dilemma. :lol:
