So what’s the difference with a B.A. Ferguson guitar and your other “big name” brands? It’s pure and simple, love is handmade. The craftsmanship, meticulous attention to detail and pure soul put into these instruments are second to none. B.A. “Boot” Ferguson says it best,

“I’m in the business of building heirlooms. Every guitar that comes out of my shop plays as if it is playing you, and part of that is because I put a lot of thought and heart into each one, always thinking ahead. These creations are very personal to me.”

This exact guitar was a 2015 Summer NAMM favorite in Nashville amongst those in the know. I bought this guitar from Boot at the end of the show and it was set-it up by him personally. There are few opportunities to purchase a brand new instrument with this much character and class. Do yourself a favor and pick up this B.A. Ferguson guitar, it will redefine your idea of what a high-end guitar should be. Anybody who appreciates fine hand crafted boutique instruments will understand, Love is truly handmade.

Master Luthier Boot Ferguson putting the final touches on this exact guitar.
