Bluedog: The Best Acoustic Guitars

A lovingly curated collection of custom & bespoke acoustic guitars.

Bluedog Guitars is proud as punch to be the recipient of the

NAMM Top 100 Dealers Award - for the third year in a row!


Bluedog Guitars offers fine hand-built acoustic guitars from international & local BC builders who we consider amongst the best luthiers in the world. 

Besides our absolutely unique inventory of fine hand-built guitars, what really sets Bluedog apart is the ability to play these instruments side-by-side: most shops carry at best one or two of these brands.

There's absolutely nowhere else in the world you can play a Lowden beside a Ryan, then compare a Santa Cruz, a Bourgeois and a Huss & Dalton, a Michael Dunn then a Shelley Park, a Webber beside a Morgan.

Bluedog also has an incredible selection of fine used guitars available on consignment, usually in pristine like-new condition (what can we say, we have the best customers in the world!).

And we are really, really good at matchmaking folks with their dream guitar!
