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

NAMM Top 100 Dealers Award - for the Fourth 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 with a Shelley Park.

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!

The Bluedog Lust List

Here's what we're hot under the collar for...

George Lowden recently gave a workshop at Bluedog Guitars - with Kris Schulz and Pierre Bensusan doing demos! George reveals one of the very few guitars in the world that has ever given him goosebumps...and Bluedog has that guitar available!
