BLUESOUTH
Instruments previously built in Muscle Shoals, AL.
Ronnie Knight began Bluesouth Guitars in 1991 with the idea of building stringed musical instruments which celebrate the musical heritage of the American South. Blues, jazz, country, rock, and spiritual music were all created in the southern American states. This small area from Texas to the Carolinas, and from Kentucky to Florida, has been the hotbed of the world's musical culture in the twentieth century. Several small towns within the southeast have had a huge impact on today's popular music: Muscle Shoals, AL; Macon, GA; and Clarksdale, MS.
The results of this project have been unique, light-bodied guitars with large, comfortable necks. Bluesouth contends that "fierce individualism" is the key ingredient in their guitar making operation. Starting in a small shop over a record store in early 1992, Bluesouth moved to a much larger industrial facility in the spring of 1995. In the late 1990s, the company offered seven models, including two electric basses. Bluesouth also built its own cases and pickups in-house. Company history courtesy Ronnie Knight, April 17, 1996.
