Kailua Kona, HI January 6, 2011 – Buddy Blaze Fine Stringed Instruments today announced the debut of their first guitar models produced in their new Indonesian factory. The unveiling will take place during the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) trade show in Anaheim, California. The show runs January 13–16, at the Anaheim Convention Center. The new facility is a collaboration between Stranough Voicemate founder, Tommy Kaihatu, business partner Charlie Bible and owner, Buddy Blaze.

Located in Surabaya, Indonesia the facility features numerous CNC machines, computerized kilns, paint booths, UV booth and even a Plek Machine. The factory was designed to meet the needs of the most discriminating guitar companies who seek high quality, value priced production. In addition to the instruments, the factory is producing wooden hard-shell cases, thermo formed cases and gig bags for instruments.

“After several days of marathon design meetings in Hawaii, it became clear that our goals and philosophies were in sync. Seeing the tremendous opportunity in front of us, we decided to move forward together.” Blaze continues… “As owners, we have total production control of our import models, assuring both the highest quality guitars in the industry and better delivery times for our dealers and their customers.”

Buddy Blaze Fine Stringed Instruments will be displaying at their booth during the NAMM show. In addition to their flagship ALII Series, the booth exhibit will include other handcrafted instruments by Buddy Blaze and the new models in multiple and more competitive price points.

About Buddy Blaze Fine Stringed Instruments

Buddy Blaze started building and “hot-rodding” guitars in 1985. With an extensive background in woodworking and machining as well as music, he set out to build his own guitar. After showing his first creation to some local players, he encountered a bidding war for this guitar and has since built instruments for some of the most recognized musicians in the world.

Buddy currently makes guitars for Vivian Campbell of Def Leppard, Scott Patton of Sugarland and other well known artists. Buddy and his wife Joyce moved to Kona Hawaii in 2005 and started Buddy Blaze Fine Stringed Instruments.
