Bluegrass Guitars

The banjo and fiddle were the primary dance band instruments for years, but the guitar did not appear as a thythm instrument until the 1920's. Bill Monroe, the Father of Bluegrass, of course played mandolin, but he always had a guitar in the band to provide the backup and rhythm. Lester Flatt made his trademark G-run famous and its one of the first licks any bluegrass guitar player learns. George Shuffler of the Stanley brothers was one of the first to turn the bluegrass guitar into a lead instrument. Today, the guitar functions well as both a lead and rhythm instrument in bluegrass bands.

Guitars Under $250

Beginning guitar players today are very fortunate to have such a large selection of playable guitars available for under $250.00, which can fit into just about anyones budget. Of course, these guitars do not have the tone of the legendary Martin Guitar, but all of the ones we offer here are very playable, stay in tune and have truss rods in the neck to prevent warping. We play and set up each guitar before sending it to you so you are assured it is ready to play when you receive it.
