Balaguer Guitars Appoint Strings & Things Ltd as Exclusive Distributor for the UK and Ireland

Strings & Things Ltd are pleased to announce that they have been appointed exclusive distributors of Balaguer Guitars for the UK & Ireland and will be setting up a small network of official dealers to carry the brand.

Jake Trowbridge, Director of Operations at Balaguer Guitars said, “We at Balaguer Guitars are very excited to announce that we have partnered with Strings and Things for distribution of our guitars and basses to dealers across the UK and Ireland! As players ourselves, nothing makes us more excited than the opportunity to share what we do with other players, and to be able to do so with a partner who values that community as much as we do is something that we’re incredibly proud of.”

Strings and Things Head of Brands, Alex Davis, commented, “I am over the moon that we will be working with Balaguer Guitars to be able to offer these truly remarkable instruments to the Irish and UK markets. The quality of the guitars is simply incredible and, as a long-time guitarist and fan of many Balaguer artists myself, I can’t wait for us to bring Balaguer Guitars to the exceptional players and dedicated guitar scenes of the UK and Ireland.”

“Where vintage inspiration meets modern design”.

Balaguer Guitars honour traditional designs and combine this with a twist of professional-grade specifications, premium features, and elevated design for players to connect and create something truly unique and special – instruments that translate your creativity in the truest way possible, no matter what approach you take to playing.

Joe Balaguer started taking custom guitar commissions shortly after graduating from the Musician Institute’s luthiery school, before moving to Pennsylvania to found Balaguer Guitars.  Shortly afterwards, he connected with a highly skilled South Korean workshop that is still used for Select Customs to this day – guitars that retain the highest standards of quality and connect with each player and their individual style.

The Select Series and Standard Series were next to be developed – crafted in Korea and Indonesia – and Joe returned to his roots by introducing the Heritage Series: one-of-one, US built, custom instruments. As interest continued to grow, Balaguer naturally expanded into the USA Series as their top-tier production spec.

Balaguer Guitars can be found today in the hands of incredible artists like Saosin, Atreyu, Every Time I Die, Sleeping With Sirens, The Acacia Strain, Spiritbox and many more.

The first UK & Ireland stock will be available later this autumn.
