      Comments about Blueridge BR-40T Contemporary Series Tenor Acoustic Guitar:

      If you wondering about the quality, its fine. i mostly use it with a martin or
      collings .realy fills in nice. with such a strong full bright instrument i could
      see no reason to spend more. i was afraid it would have a thin sound but thats not the case. only give it 4 stars because for me its a sometimes guitar.
      when i do play it it fills in great

      Comments about Blueridge BR-40T Contemporary Series Tenor Acoustic Guitar:

      Been hankering for a tenor for a while now. This one got consistently good reviews and when MF offered one as "used" in #2 condition, I ordered it. Darned if I can find a mark anywhere on it - It looks to be new. Out of the box, it tuned right up and has held tuning very well. Fit and finish are excellent - no flaws at all, even inside it seems to be clean and neat. It sounds great, looks great, plays great... I love it. Could not be more pleased.

        Comments about Blueridge BR-40T Contemporary Series Tenor Acoustic Guitar:

        I have been playing Baritone Ukulele for about a year or so. I was looking for a different sound, more guitar like. I tuned it the same as my Ukulele, DGBE and it sounds wonderful. The other great thing for me is I already knew how to play the chords.

        I plan to play this with other Ukulele players and don't see a problem blending in nicely. In fact I could play this instrument in any setting, my weekly tune jam group or in a bluegrass setting.

        It's a beautiful guitar, highly rated and I see why. The only thing with mine is the end pin pulled out while I was attaching my shoulder strap. It doesn't look like it was glued to begin with. Easy fix a dab of glue and should be all good.

          Comments about Blueridge BR-40T Contemporary Series Tenor Acoustic Guitar:

          First of all, there are not that many manufacturers building tenor guitars anymore, unless you want to get into a custom builder. That being said, I really don't think you can beat this tenor for the price, or probably even for anything close to this price. I have it in bouzouki tuning and it adds a nice compliment to regular acoustic guitar.

            It plays like a dream and I can't find a single finish flaw anywhere. Even the factory set up in right on the money. I don't see how anyone could build a better one.

              This is my first foray into playing a guitar-like instrument with steel strings. I play ukulele and bass usually. The first day I had this tenor guitar, a song came out of it! I never get song ideas so I am considering it a muse! Lovely sound and easy to handle. Great value for the price. I re-tuned it as a ukulele because I was too lazy too learn new chords and the sound is still clear and singy!
