Boogaloo Guitars was established in the UK by Frank Lemaux around 1986. Lemaux created the Flaux acoustic guitar. These featured a one-piece carbon fibre composite shell, designed to fit the natural shape of the human body and were designed to be as easy to play and handle as an electric guitar. Fitted with Ashworth transducers and 3-channel active electrics, prices started at £599 in 1986 including gig bags. Frank Lemaux also offered electric models with carbon fibre/exotic timber composites.

In 2022 there is a Boogaloo shop in Musgrave Harbour, Newfoundland making guitar effects pedals and custom lap-steel guitars as well as offering guitar and amplifier repair and maintenance.
