Since we started building Blueberry guitars in 2007 we have created many beautiful motifs and several of our customers have requested that we bring back some of our original designs.
Based on these requests we have been going through our photo archives all the way back to 2007 and choosing what we believe are our most exceptional designs and offering them to our customers on a “Special Order/ Custom Order ” basis.
This means that we will reproduce exactly the same guitar using the same materials and specifications or we can make modifications such as dimensions, materials, motifs and even change it from a right handed to a lefty guitar based on your request.
We can also add specific engravings such as your initials or a note to a loved one.
Special Order Blueberries will take three months for us to build and we will be sending you photos of the progress of your guitar as we build it.
The Blueberry Archtop guitar in the photos is the first Blueberry Guitar we ever built, way back in 2005 – as you can see, there are some cracks – this was before we perfected our humidity control – the replica we will build for you will be perfect of course.
Blueberry Guitars come with Gotoh Tuners and D’Addario medium gauge strings.
Your guitar will be delivered in a high quality hard shell case with a warranty.
SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT CHANGING MODEL TYPES TO SUIT YOU BETTER:
As these are “Special order / Custom Order” Guitars, we can also build the same motif as a different model – this means that if you like this motif but would like to order it in a different size we can build it as a Classical Guitar, Dreadnought Guitar, Jumbo Guitar, Parlor Guitar, 12 String guitar etc. at no cost to you – just specify what you’d like on your note to us when you pay.
