  • I'm sure they're fine if you can get them to call you back. Ended up taking an Uber to guitar center instead of walking to this place.
  • I was hanging out in the showroom area looking at the great guitars, cigar boxes and a bass when I met a fellow named Jeff. As it turned out, it was Jeff Cox, part owner of St. Blues Guitars. We talked for a while and I told him there was an ad downtown Memphis saying you could tour the workshop. He invited me to follow him and we rounded up the rest of the people in the showroom and took a private tour (stopping and asking questions while sampling necks, bodies, frets anything that was presently being hand built. The workshop is a warehouse that is cleverly setup to build and assemble guitars, basses and cigar boxes. Everything is made and assembled in the Memphis warehouse with the slabs of wood being shipped in from California. I was really impressed how the frets were individually installed, filed and leveled in the neck and how much personal care and mojo was being installed in each instrument. The necks and or the neck pockets are signed by the builder and dated before assembly. Before taking the tour I was contemplating buying a beautiful Korean made St. Blues bass for around $550 off the showroom floor. When I got back in the showroom, I had to have an American made guitar from Memphis. I purchased a beautiful tobacco-burst Blindsider with that had been completed the day before and was not even S/N-ed yet. I even met the guy that built my guitar, TK (Tom Keckler) and the guy (CJ) that designed the new MOJO (ala...Jimi Hendrix) pickups that were installed in my guitar. My guitar is truly a one-off guitar American made in Memphis and now has a S/N unique to me starting with my initials, then the date it was started (6 months prior to finishing) and ending with 001. OBTW...not only is it beautiful to look at, it is incredible fun to play and hear.
