Balaguer Guitars Unveils the Espada T-BAR

Balaguer Guitars Unveils the Espada T-BAR

A modern take on an offset baritone.

Pottstown, PA (August 19, 2019) -- Balaguer Guitars has just unleashed The Espada T-BAR, which they've dubbed “the offset baritone evolved”. This is the Signature Model for guitarist Tony Pizzuti of The Word Alive. His band plays in lower tunings so having a longer scale length is ideal, but he didn’t want it to feel too long or bass-like, so they went with a 26.5″ scale. This feels similar to a normal 25.5″ scale guitar but the extra inch really does help with string tension with lower tunings! Like most of their models, the Espada T-BAR fuses vintage aesthetics with modern ergonomic design. This Artist Series guitar comes with stainless steel frets, and their high-output Truenobucker humbuckers.

Features:

  • Mahogany Body
  • 26.5” Scale, 24 medium jumbo stainless steel frets
  • Hard Rock Maple Neck (Thin D Neck Shape)
  • Ebony Fingerboard with Cream Block Inlays
  • (16” radius) – with Human Logo on 12th fret
  • One volume, One tone(push/pull for coil split), 3 way switch
  • Balaguer Truenobucker Humbucker Set (16k in the bridge, 11.2k in the neck)
  • Balaguer Locking Tuners, Graphtech Nut (1 11/16” nut width)
  • Hipshot Hardtail Bridge (Gold)
  • Gold Pickguard & Hardware
  • Gig Bag Included

Gibson’s Theodore model

PRS Guitars and Ted McCarty family drop “Theodore” trademark objection, and Gibson agrees to drop opposition to PRS’s “594” and “Silver Sky Nebula” trademarks and trademark applications.

PRS Guitars yesterday announced that it has withdrawn its objection to Gibson’s registration of the “Theodore” trademark. In a press release, PRS stated it continues to hold dear and protect its long-standing agreement with Ted McCarty and the McCarty family regarding the exclusive rights to the “McCarty” trademark and to McCarty’s name and persona, first developed directly with Ted himself more than 25 years ago. After a series of private negotiations, Gibson has also agreed to drop its opposition to PRS’s “594” and “Silver Sky Nebula” trademarks and trademark applications.
