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.


  • Mahogany Body
  • 26.5” Scale, 24 medium jumbo stainless steel frets
