From the the day we started Blueberry guitars, in 2005, the goal of our company was to offer best sounding and most beautiful guitars in the world. After more than two years of development, our much anticipated electric guitar project is finally coming into light! While for acoustic guitars the luthiers skill is of the utmost importance, for electric guitars of equal importance is the selection of the finest quality electronics.
After a long search, we have chosen Langcaster pickups from New Zealand to be used in our new Blueberry Electric guitars. The Langcaster pickup system was designed by Dutch luthier and electronics genius, Mr. Joh Lang, who was introduced to us by of of our first Blueberry customer, Ms. Leslie K. of Texas. We thank Leslie very much for the introduction. There are many reviews of the extremely high quality Langcaster pickup system all over the internet.

The guitar literally just sings, great bass response, ringing trebles and a nice even balance across the strings. Very bright and clear and light as a feather. I am favorably impressed with the tone and intonation (which is as perfect as I've seen) of any instrument. This guitar also has great sustain. This guitar can play it all? the blues, jazz, country? Very versatile and responsive. It really has a "right now" kind of response to it and the midrange is very percussive sounding.
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. Visit our online store to learn more
