Preachin' the good news about vintage tone and artistic instrument adornment.
The Blueridge BR-343 Gospel Model Acoustic Guitar is carefully crafted and beautifully adorned with traditional symbols of the Christian faith. A magnificent abalone and pearl chalice and cross design graces the headstock, while the fingerboard bears the ancient triple locked-ring symbol for the Trinity. The BR-343 Gospel Model is crafted with a select solid spruce top, hand-carved X-bracing, choice solid mahogany back and sides, and a traditional dovetail neck joint for pure Golden Era tone. The slim mahogany neck and comfortable 000-sized body make it a truly enjoyable guitar to play.
Blueridge guitars offer authentic vintage style with strict adherence to the spirit of prewar instruments. 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.

My uncle has one these guitars and I've played it. It was probably the best and most comfortable guitar I've ever played. It is also one the prettiest. The neck is very fast and smooth. All in all it is a great buy.
I literally cannot believe just how incredible this guitar is. The pictures do not do it justice at all. It's simply the most gorgeous acoustic I've seen. And if the looks don't sell you outright on this one, wait until you play it. It has such a light touch that it nearly plays itself. It's a very light guitar, so I expected it to sound like a toy, but I was blown away by how rich the tone was, and how well it projected for a 000-size model. This guitar is absolutely amazing. If the rest of their line is comparable, I will only buy Blueridge from now on. Seriously.
Purchased for my personal use. I compared to several other brands in a music store and the sound was awesome. Kept coming back to the Blueridge and later purchased it. It replaced my D-15 Martin. Its small body and big sound makes it a great guitar for self enjoyment. Thanks Blueridge.
This is a great guitar it feels a little lite but when strummed it feels like it vibrates everywhere. The tone is rich. I wish it came prefitted with a fishman matrix. however with that added it should be great!!!
Haven't had mine but a few hours now and am blown away with the build quality and sound from this little jewel.I would like to put it side by side with a Martin 000 and hear the difference (if there any)...8)
I purchased this guitar for my son about a month ago. He has been taking lessions for about four years and is active with the church youth group. It is gorgeous!! It is much nicer than the pictures show. I am not sure that I like the tuners, but very nice guitar. All in all, I like it better than my Martin OOOM.
This guitar is all that it is cracked up to be. I've had mine for about a week now, and I find it to have the quality and sound of the more expensive guitars that I have played. It's small 000 body is easy to handle, and the detail in the craftsmanship is impeccable. I've tried to find a flaw and cannot.The sound is robust and full, egual to some Martins I've played. Buy this guitar and you won't be sorry, that's the Gospel Truth !
