    Today I saw a sale (15% off) on the Balaguer Thicket Standard. I had not heard of Balaguer before and was curious if anyone here had an experience with this guitar.

    At $594.15 new, it would be a Made in Mexico, thus the addition of the word "Standard". Personally, I think the MIM Fender products are of pretty good quality. I have two Fenders that are MIM, and I have been very happy with both. I say "Go for it!"

    Balaguer guitars are legit.
    More often used by the harder rock and metal crowd. But they are fine instruments at all of their price points.
