Comments about Blueridge BR-180A Adirondack Top Craftsman Series Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

After the 2008 crash I sold my Martin DC Aura to make a mortgage payment and Martin doesn't make that model any more. :( Because of that, I looked for other alternatives in a higher end dreadnought guitar. I found the reviews on the Blue Ridge BR-180A and was impressed with the comments and the price. I now have one in my hands and all I can say is this is a lot of guitar for the money. This guitar is as well built as my Martin was and sounds just as good to me. The only two things that would make it better are if it came with a case and if it had a high end Fishman pickup and preamp. I know the cutaway version has that, but I really didn't want a cutaway this time. I will be adding a pickup of some kind soon. I am really excited about recording this guitar. It really sounds great and has a well balanced tone and great volume. There is plenty of bottom end for me and I am playing country and bluegrass with it. I'll be ordering a case for it soon to. This is a great buy in a D45 style dreadnought. Workmanship is excellent. I'm proud to own it and I'm pleased to have an extra thousand clams still in the bank over what I'd have if I had purchased another Martin. Nice job Saga Music and Blue Ridge.

    Comments about Blueridge BR-180A Adirondack Top Craftsman Series Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    I own several acoustic guitars, but the BR180A is starting to become my "go to" guitar. At first I wasn't too sure . I dug the aesthetics of the instrument and it is a cannon for sure. When played in first position the response is super with great tone and I love the bass response. I've had it about 3 months now and it is beginning to open up, and reveal it's "personality". When played further up the neck it becomes a little more difficult to play, and bar chords become challenging, but a different set-up May help this. Over all it's a well constructed, beautiful guitar that sounds great and is great for country, folk, or bluegrass styles. I am pleased to have the Blueridge BR180A in my collection.
