Prewar tone and craftsmanship in a modern, affordable acoustic.
If you've ever dreamed of finding an affordable prewar herringbone guitar, the Blueridge BR-260 Prewar Series Dreadnought Guitar is here for your wish fulfillment. This modern incarnation of the original prewar American dreadnought comes crafted with a select solid spruce top, hand-carved X-bracing, choice solid Brazilian rosewood back and sides, ebony fingerboard, ebony bridge, and a traditional dovetail neck joint for pure Golden Era tone. 28-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.

The BR 260 is a great guitar. The workmanship, tone and materials are first rate. As it comes from the box, the guitar ranks with any top acoustic guitar, but here's a real tip. I changed the bridge pins--which are (like Martin) plastic--for bone. Just camel bone, nothing exotic. I also changed the saddle for fossilized walrus ivory. Difference--huge. The tone now is really beautiful: deep, powerful, defined yet also silky. With that change and the Brazillian rosewood sides and back, this guitar now compares with or exceeds any guitar out there. My old Martins are great, but the BR 260 with these changes is right there.
