OVERVIEW

Spruce and rosewood in a wonderfully accurate turn of the century recreation.

The Blueridge BR-371 Parlor Acoustic Guitar celebrates the past. This new Blueridge is the perfect replica of a classic, small-bodied parlor guitar built around the turn of the century. Every feature of design, workmanship and ornamentation is faithfully reproduced, but with a few modern improvements such as a slimmer, more playable neck and adjustable truss rod. Representing the top of the line for the Blueridge Parlor guitars, the BR-371 features stunning abalone pearl inlay around top and soundhole as well as select solid woods throughout.

FEATURES
  • Select solid spruce top
  • Solid East Indian rosewood back and sides
  • Handcarved parabolic-shaped and scalloped top bracing in the authentic PreWar forward-X position
  • Solid mahogany neck with traditional diamond volute
  • Abalone top and sound hole purfling
  • Grained ivoroid binding on body and neck
  • Ebony fingerboard and pyramid-style bridge with bone saddle
  • Bone nut
  • Natural high-gloss finish
  • High quality, nickel-plated
  • Gotoh tuners with grained ivoroid buttons
  • Scale length: 24.75"
  • Nut Width: 1-7/8"
  • Shop adjusted

    Comments about Blueridge BR-371 Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

    Hoping to improve my fingerpicking I was looking for a small-bodied, short scale guitar with a wide nut (1 7/8") and wide string spacing at the saddle. I had hoped to find a used Martin 00VS that I could afford when I came across the Blueridge. The specs were just what I was looking for. In fact, Saga Music has borrowed heavily from the VS Martin.

    The guitar's scale seems to be 24.9" instead of the 25.5" scale listed in the product info. The BR-37l that I received is very well built and perfectly voiced for fingerpicking. The fit and finish are very good and the guitar is a joy to play It has a jaw-dropping resonance, nice volume and balanced full-bodied sound. But, maybe too much resonance for aggressive flat pick strumming.

    I wish this instrument had been available decades ago, my fingerpicking would probably be much farther along by now. If you can step up to the American-made Martin buy it, but if you can't, the BR-371 will not disappoint you.

    As always, Musician's Friend did an excellent job with my purchase...GREAT PRICE, GREAT SERVICE, GREAT FINANCING, NO PROBLEMS!

          Comments about Blueridge BR-371 Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

          I've played acoustic professionally for 40 years ,owned and played everything .My preferred stage instrument is a 1978 Larrivee L27 ,,still is .I have a Blueridge BR 283 ,and this BR 371 . The 283 is 5 years old ,the 371 2 years old .I have MANY MANY hours on both of these exceptional instruments .I do not write reviews ,these warrent an exception .There is nothing anywhere that compares anywhere near the price range ,no question ,that's that.I know ,I've been at it forever.I won't go into details ,it's not necessay ,just get one and you'll be pleased .As long as they last I'd say get the top of the line and never look back .Don't get hung up on Branding .As Chet Atkins once said " if it sounds good & plays good ,it probaly is "

            This is an incredible guitar at this price point. Unbelievable build quality throughout. I had a K&K Pure Mini pickup professionally installed and this guitar KILLS when plugged in!!! Basically, it's an incredible buy.

            Comments about Blueridge BR-371 Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

            I just bought this guitar today after playing it in the store and falling in love with its sound, and, I admit, its looks. I am not a professional musician, but I perform folk songs, and find this a perfect instrument to accompany the voice. It's sound is simple, slightly rich, and, for me, perfect.
