      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!

              I was skeptical...

              By Dave Mosher

              from New Hapshire

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

              Overall
              I am so happy I bought this guitar. At first I was quite skeptical, especially due to the fact that Saga/Blueridge guitars are made in China. But I challenge anyone to find a tenor guitar that is built this well and sounds this good, right out of the box, that is made here in the US for this price. You won't find one. I love everything about this guitar. The size, the woods, the finish and the sound are all absolutely remarkable!! I'm a long-time Mandolin and Mandola player...both have been set aside.
              I tried out a bunch of different used and vintage tenor guitars at several different guitar shops and they all sounded like junk. I was discourage and thought that maybe all tenors sound that way and maybe I shouldn't get one. With Musician's Friend you get a 45 day money back guarantee so I figured it's worth a try. No need for that! I'll go to my grave with this guitar. It is truly that good.
