GUITARS

The Blue Lion Model B2 was designed to give players a very well balanced instrument with superior tone, clarity and playability using only light gauge strings. Smaller than a dreadnought, the B2 size is easier for most people to hold and play yet delivers all the power of the much larger-bodied guitars and with much better balance.

Twenty years of design evolution have brought the B2 guitar to the current stage of development. The B2 features a thin (in cross-section) adjustable neck with a compound radius fretboard for improved playability, a larger-than-standard soundhole, and a neck attachment system which allows for quick and easy neck removal while providing a very strong joint unaffected by heat and humidity.

This guitar is an excellent instrument for both solo and ensemble playing; it can easily hold its own in any musical situation, from a bluegrass jam to a solo fingerpicking recording session. The acoustics have been highly praised by recording engineers for clarity and presence, and sound engineers rave about the ease with which it can be miked for stage performance.

The B2 is available in a variety of wood combinations and with custom fretboard inlay if desired. Amplification is available with the excellent L.R. Baggs acoustic pickup and electronics.

Prices include a custom fitted hardshell case and start at $3500.00.
