About this body:

*** This body will need work and finish before being used ***

Body weights 6 Lbs 13 oz / 3115 g – Very nice weight for this body shape

Body is not fully flat on either side. I’ve had a hard time working with the maple for this body. This will not affect playability but you will notice when you put the body flat on your table. Once you put your neck plate you will be able to tell.

These sell for 285$US/370$CAN at various suppliers and you can expect at least 4 weeks before delivery. This is one is in stock and ready to go!

A little about us:

I’ve been playing guitar for about 18 years. I like the instrument more than I do the playing and have always been fascinated by it. I have owned over 25 guitars (with more every year) and have started this guitar company to share my work with you. I live in beautiful Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Why the Bluenose:

Launched in 1921 from Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, the Bluenose was a symbol of Canada and Nova Scotia in the 1920s and 1930s. The schooner was best known for its racing success, staying undefeated for nearly 20 years. Even today, Nova Scotians are known as “Bluenosers”. The ship marked history and as a sailor I feel it is a beautiful symbol. The Bluenose lives today as the Bluenose II, which can be visited in the summer in beautiful Lunenburg, the same place the original Bluenose started nearly 100 years ago.
