Saint Blues Guitar Workshop produces 3 lines of guitars in its Memphis factory, The Workshop Series of high-end, custom guitars; the Juke Joint Series, a line of mid priced guitars; and the Roots Series of Cigar Box guitars. The factory is open for tours Monday through Saturday. Tours cost $4.00 and last about 30 minutes. The factory showroom offers great prices on demo model guitars. We encourage players to try out our guitars in our amp room. We also have a gift shop of cool music and Memphis related souvenirs.

If you are ever in Memphis for the music and you have any interest in guitars then you should make plans to stop by this place and see some of the history of craft guitar making. Very friendly staff will stop and take the time to explain the history of St. Blues and actually let you play one of their... More

after Gibson you may think it's not worthwhile visiting Saint Blues,then you're wrong, we've got the tour with the manager and it's not a big factory but you can see what's going on and ask questions, not only all the staff is friendly but they give a lot of information, the cigar boxes were very nice, I've bought a cigar...

Lots of great guitars but I fell in love with the Mississippi Bluesmaster with tapped P-90's and brought it home. It seemed like an appropriate souvenir for participation in the IBC. Also bought the 15 watt St Blues amp - great combo. I really love the tone, look and feel of the Bluesmaster. It goes to all the gigs now.
