All of the great Bristol guitars are brought to us

by Saga Musical Instruments company in San Francisco, Ca. They are made by the same craftsmen, in the same factory as the famous Blueridge guitars. So the exceptional build quality and tone of these guitars came as no surprise to us, as these craftsmen are accustomed to meeting a very high standard. What is surprising is their low price point! The Bristol guitar is born with a great advantage over Other low priced guitars, and they truly bring the traditional sound of the mountains to virtually every player. Even at this price level, the finest spruce and mahogany tonewoods are carefully handcrafted by skilled artisans with years of experience. The vintage designed forward-x top bracing is lightweight but strong to ensure great carrying power and resonance. The slim mahogany neck features a fully adjustable truss rod to guarantee perfect alignment at all times. The result is a traditionally styled dreadnaught guitar with a big, full-bodied and rich tone that tells the ear you have a high dollar instrument. They are so smooth and the action is set such that they are really an absolute pleasure to play! Look inside a Bristol guitar. You won’t see shreds of wood that should have been sanded out, you won’t see excess glue that was applied poorly and left to dry this way. Getting down to how a good guitar is actually made,  you can see that Bristol guitars are made by qualified experts and tooling.
