The BR-240 offers traditional sound and feel at prewar prices.
Crafted with a select solid spruce top, hand-carved X-bracing, choice solid mahogany back and sides, ebony fingerboard, ebony bridge, and a traditional dovetail neck joint for pure Golden Era tone. 18-style binding and inlay work along with a floral-design pearl inlay on the headstock and aged finish complete the vintage look. The slim mahogany neck and traditional dreadnought body make it a truly enjoyable guitar to play.
The Prewar Series offers authentic vintage style with strict adherence to prewar instrument specifications.
If you've been searching for a Golden Era guitar that isn't priced like it's made of gold, then Blueridge guitars are for you. Reminiscent of fine American guitars built prior to WWII, Blueridge guitars are made with the same techniques as their antique counterparts, including many by-hand processes.
Like the best instruments, Blueridge guitars aren't overbuilt; they're crafted to be light and resonant. Meticulous attention to detail and quality craftsmanship is evident in the traditional, forward-position, hand-carved parabolic X-bracing which allows the solid Spruce top to ring loud and true. Blueridge guitars feature a traditional dovetail neck joint, slim mahogany neck, adjustable truss rod, and butterbean-button, Kluson-style tuning machines with an updated mechanism for modern precision and feel.

If you're looking for that Martin sound and pre-war D-18 vibe you should check this guitar out. Fit and finish is flawless. Sound and playability outstanding. All solid wood construction and sweet D'Addarrio stings from the factory. If you are in the market for a Martin or D-18 style guitar you should at least check this one out. For the money you can't beat it and honestly it sounds and plays better than much more expensive Martins that I've played. Find one to play and compare for yourself, you won't be disappointed. I highly recommend this instrument.
