I found My Thrill On Blueberry Hill

Hi everyone and welcome back to the World’s Finest Guitars. If you’re a regular reader your aware that we have been on a semi hiatus for about six months. We’ve tried to update posts however we have been expanding our recording business and that adventure has kept us quite busy. but the good news is that the World’s Finest Guitars is also growing as well and we will be entering some new and exciting territory that will become apparent in the next entries. So this is not just a blind tease, World’s Finest Guitars will be premiering our new website in the very near future. We will no longer just be a blog about guitars but we will feature some opportunities for everyone to get more involved in the love of hand crafted instruments.
But enough with this news blurb lets get into a new post this time were going to look at a guitar line that we have been intrigued by for quite some time the guitar line is from Blueberry Guitars . There’s no doubt that Blueberry guitars has decided to be very proactive in hand crafted instruments.
If your familiar with the line, you know that the hand carving on the exterior of Blueberry Guitars is exceptional.

“Blueberry guitars is the inspiration of Montreal businessman and musician Danny Fonfeder who conceived the idea to marry outstanding craftsmanship to extraordinary art. American luthier and educator, George Morris, and Balinese woodcarver, Wayan Tuges, bring together two great craft traditions, combining the best of Western technology and expertise, 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. They celebrate the joining of mind and spirit, functionality and artful reverence. Each instrument will be a great musical inspiration and serve as a constant reminder of what artists can achieve. No two are alike. All meet the exacting standards demanded by great musicianship and art connoisseurs.

 

The unique fingerprint of the artist that appears on each guitar, half on and half off the label will become synonymous with our instruments. We trust that you will hear the difference with the very first note played and experience for yourself the new possibilities that await your talent.”

Although this wasn’t my 1st choice of Blueberry i chose the Fierro this guitar is by no means inferior in quality of build or sound reproduction.I was lucky to try this model out at Hobgoblen music iWadebridge Cornwall U.K. and the performance was outstanding to say the very least . This is the guitar you would gladly sell your wife and kids for.As far as the best guitar makers go I am proud to be the owner of one of their guitars .All I want now being greedy is a 12 string version of my Fierro to make up the set.Not just another guitar but an investment as well.Enjoy.

 

 

Thanks for your comment Alan, It’s always great to hear from our readers. I would love to own one myself…. Well there’s always Santa.

Have a great holiday WFGs

The Dreadnought is

just right for the flat-picking singer/songwriter, or bluegrass musician. Powerful, with a sonorous, crisp bass and clear, ringing trebles, it matches the intensity of the banjo and fiddle player, and its dynamic range perfectly complements vocal accompaniment. Most large, deep guitars tend to muddy the sound, at the expense of clear bass notes, and a clear definition overall. We think you will find that this is not the case with the Blueberry dreadnought. Notes are powerful but clear, with crispness throughout the tonal range, and balance across the board.Lets take a look at one of Blueberry’s larger models .The Dreadnought

Scale length: 25 1/2″ 648mm
# of frets: 20
Width lower bout: 15 3/4″ 40cm
Upper bout: 11 3/4″ 29.8cm
Body length: 20″ 50.8cm

  1. hi .Even though this isn’t my blueberry I was fortunate to try this model out at Hobgoblyn music in Wadebridge Cornwall U.K..I must admit it came a close second to my choice of the Fierro that I purchaced. the carvings are mindblowing the sound just excells the more you play it .It’s an instument of torture because once it’s in your grasp you don’t want to let go ,all you want is to carry on playing it,(What’s food or sleep)who needs it when your soul is on fire with ultamate extasy.Blluberry guitars are everyting a serious musician will ever need or want.Keep the comming please.Alan McDonald.
