Blueberry Guitars is the inspiration of Montreal businessman and musician Danny Fonfeder who conceived the idea of marrying outstanding craftsmanship to extraordinary art.
American luthier and educator George Morris and Balinese woodcarver Wayan Tuges brought together two great craft traditions, combining the best of Western technology with the best woodcarvers in the world.
Each guitar is handmade and unique in detail and materials. Each is a work of art worthy of the finest musicians.
A special group of craftsmen add their exceptional skills to every guitar before it is tested and judged ready to be called a Blueberry Instrument. Blueberry Guitars embody a marriage of East and West celebrating the joining of mind and spirit, functionality and artful reverence. No two are alike.
All meet the exacting standards demanded by great musicianship and art connoisseurs and can satisfy even those who demand perfection.
