Blue Star Guitars 1991 to present ” Although I was building acoustic guitars and various and sometimes odd stringed instruments since 1978, the first Blue Star electric instrument, the Travelcaster, was designed in 1991 and went into production in 1992. All of the Blue Star Guitar CO. guitars, mandolins, banjos and ukes are stamped with a sequential serial number on the back of the peghead. In addition, the neck pocket and butt-end have the date (Mo/Yr) penciled on. Lapsteel guitars and dulcimers have the serial number and date written in either the pickup or control cavities on the body.” [Source: Bruce Herron, Paw Paw, Michigan, Blue Star Guitars, email 24/3/2008]
