The BR-63 delivers vintage sound and feel with a modern look and low price.
The Blueridge BR-63 guitar from the Contemporary series is crafted to be light and resonant, yet durable enough to take the rigors of daily play. Meticulous attention to detail and quality craftsmanship is evident in the acoustic guitar's traditional, forward-position, hand-carved parabolic X-bracing which allows the solid Spruce top to ring loud and true. The Blueridge BR-63 guitar features a traditional dovetail neck joint, slim mahogany neck, adjustable truss rod, and butterbean-button, Kluson-style tuning machines with an updated for a modern precise feel. Includes limited lifetime warranty.

Comments about Blueridge BR-63 Contemporary Series 000 Acoustic Guitar:
I have been playing on an older Sigma for about four years, and recently purchased the BR-63. Having messed around with a bunch of different guitars, I decided that I liked the 000 style and went for the Blueridge, although I hadn't heard much about the brand. I'll be the first to review the BR-63...
I think this is a great guitar for a novice to intermediate player who isn't intent on spending a lot of money, and enjoys jamming and just having fun playing their guitar. The sound is rewarding and consistent (mostly). I would have liked a guitar with solid back and sides, but I am satisfied with the sound so far, and hopefully it just gets better with age.
Regarding the construction, as with some other Blueridge reviews, I have to say that the neck has more than one spot where the finish could be better. I also had to have the neck adjusted twice, but that was more because of the changes in humidity the guitar experienced after I moved it from a dry to humid climate. Thirdly, it feels a bit fragile, but I guess that comes with a combination wood/laminate design and a small body style. But that's the end of my criticism.
Overall, I am pleased with my purchase and continue to enjoy playing this pretty guitar. Again, the style is to my liking and it sounds pretty good when you take care of it. I would recommend it to a young player like myself. I think I will end up keeping mine for a while and holding onto it as a backup/jam guitar when I need a change of pace from whatever I'm playing in the future.
