Dec 26, 2012 INVESTING IN VINTAGE, HANDMADE & HIGH END GUITARS IN A BAD ECONOMY
OKAY... we may be poised to go over the Fiscal Cliff and its possible the economy may get worse before it gets better. Investing in the stock market is difficult these days due to high-frequency trading and wide-spread market manipulation in commodities and precious metals. But this is not a blog about the manipulation of markets by evil forces operating under the radar ... I am really interested in discussing the wisdom of putting your hard earned money or savings into guitars and other collectible instruments (mandos, vintage amps, etc.) right now.

Jan 3, 2011 THE SUB $1000 EXCEPTIONAL GUITAR!!!
Like many of you who have been searching for that perfect guitar...you know...the one that looks great, plays great and sounds great...I've found that these really high quality guitars are going to end up costing at least $2000, often considerably more. And, like many of you, I have tried out all of the low-priced production guitars, looking for something that plays well and sounds pretty good for dragging around town to jam sessions and for road trips. Until recently, the kind of low-cost guitars I've been finding in the $300-$800 range have been constructed with inferior materials, exhibit mediocre craftsmanship and quality control, and play and sound like toys. That all changed when I recently discovered Blueridge Guitars, specifically the BR-140 (Sitka/Mahogany) and BR-160 (Sitka/Rosewood) dreadnaughts, which are manufactured by hand in China by very skilled craftsman using high quality solid tonewoods and distributed in the US by Saga Music located in San Francisco.
