ORDER STATUS UPDATE
We are making good progress on the current run of instruments and all is going well. We have prepared the various components that go into each instrument; the sides are bent, the fretboards are inlaid and fretted and we are almost ready to begin gluing the instruments together.
As 3/4/22, any new orders added to the waitlist most likely will be scheduled for the first or second run of 2023. We really are doing our best to get instruments built as quickly as possible but the waitlist continues to grow!
When it is nearing time to begin the next run we will be contacting our waitlisted customers in the order of the date they contacted us. If your email address may have changed in the last year please send us an email with the new contact information so we can still get in touch with you.
Rumors notwithstanding, we have neither the desire nor intention of retiring any time soon so rest assured Blue Lion is NOT closing its doors. We are still building dulcimers and plan to keep on as long as we can; we are just not able to build as many or build them as quickly as we used to. 44 years of building guitars and dulcimers have taken their toll on our joints!
We thank you for your understanding and patience; as soon as we know more we'll post updates on this page.

A good friend suggested I let you all know that I miss teaching and seeing all my friends from the various workshops. Out here in the rural mountains of California's Central Coast the available internet service is not fast enough to support my participation in the online workshops.
Keep playing music and stay tuned!!!
