The Thicket BB is a collaborative model between Beau Burchell of the band Saosin and Balaguer Guitars. We built Beau a USA Custom Thicket a few years ago when Balaguer Guitars was first getting off the ground, so we already had an idea of what he was into guitar-wise. We wanted to work on something more specific to Beau's needs as a touring musician, but also as a record producer/engineer.
When he's not touring with Saosin, Beau records & produces bands at his studio, The Cottage. During the design phase, we both knew that having a tour-proof guitar was important, but making sure the guitar was versatile enough for studio use was equally paramount.
Build times are currently 3-4 months, but can vary depending on our build queue.
