Balaguer The Archetype Standard Guitar, Quilt Maple Top, See-Through White


Manufacturer's Description

The Archetype is our take on a modern double cutaway guitar that retains elegance and highlights comfort. We approached the shape with ergonomics and playability in mind. Built for heavier styles of music, we paired our higher output Feral humbucker set with a mahogany body and maple neck construction. A flatter fingerboard radius, 22 frets, and beveled body design lends to fast yet comfortable playability. This model is meant to NOT get in your way when you need to shred, so we sculpted the back of the treble horn to allow all access to the upper register of the neck.
