BLUE LION ACOUSTIC GUITAR

We are pleased to have in stock and available for sale a Blue Lion B2 guitar. It was completed in the fall of 2023 and we have been waiting for delivery of the custom fitted guitar cases before listing its availability. It has been several years since we did a run of guitars and of the three built in this run two have sold already.

For more information go to our In Stock page.


SECOND RUN FOR 2024

We are well into this run of dulcimers; the bodies are assembled and we will be preparing them for their first coats of lacquer during the next week.  Once we being the finishing process it usually takes one to two weeks to have them ready to ship; we are hoping the weather cooperates--when it gets very hot and dry we have a very limited time to shoot lacquer. 


WAITLISTING ORDERS SUSPENDED

For the time being, we are no longer accepting orders to be placed on our waitlist.  We are at least a year out to complete the orders already in place and we don't want to keep adding orders at this point.

We are not able to work as long in the shop as we used to and it is taking longer to complete a production run due to various factors well beyond our control. 

We are not retiring and we are not planning on closing Blue Lion anytime soon.  We just need some time to catch up.

For those of you already on our waitlist, rest assured we are still planning on building your instruments.

Our good friend Madeline MacNeil passed away in 2020 and we have set up a page on our website to give access to several of her mountain and hammered dulcimer books.  All of the money from Maddie's music sales goes to her favorite charities.
