The BR-63 delivers vintage sound and feel with a modern look and low price.
Crafted with a solid spruce top, hand-carved braces, choice rosewood back and sides, and a traditional dovetail neck joint for pure Golden Era tone. The pearl inlay work on the fingerboard and headstock and delicate marquetry center strip on the back are touches of fine art. The comfortable 000-sized body and slim mahogany neck make it easy to play.
Contemporary Series Blueridge guitars offer prewar performance with a clean, modern look and style.
If you've been searching for a Golden Era guitar that isn't priced like it's made of gold, then Blueridge guitars are for you. Reminiscent of fine American guitars built prior to WWI, 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.

I own 65 guitars, including Brazillian Rosewood Martins, 1940's Gibsons, etc... While waiting for a quick repair to be finished on one of my vintage Gretsch's, I picked this little Blueridge off the wall and sat down to check it out. I couldn't believe how easy it played and how great it sounded. It blew me away. So, I went and picked up several other Blueridge models off the wall to compare it to... the more expensive solid wood body models. None of them sounded nearly as good as the br 63. I bought the guitar and brought it home honestly thinking that when I compared it to my crazy good vintage acoustics it would sound thin and probably lame. I was wrong. It held it's own against them all! Now, of course a OOO bodied guitar isn't going to sound like a D 45 or a Southern Jumbo or J200, but... what continues to amaze me, is how even and comfortable and full of tone this little made in China guitar is! I think I've figured out it's secret... When looking inside the guitar, it appears that the back and sides are mahogany. Then of course, it has the very attractive Rosewood laminate over that. I think it's some weird X factor (not talking about the fine bracing job here!) of the mahogany and rosewood that gives it some tone mojo. I've recorded with it now both fingerpicked and strumming. I've heard it sit brightly in a track with full rock band behind it and I've heard it solo by itself played back through the best monitors you can buy. I really didn't think I would ever be this impressed by any imported laminated guitar. I've also written on it already, as I trully find it has soul in it. This little guitar is so good, it's hard to believe.
All I have to say about this guitar is WOW! You cannot find another guitar near this price range with the playability and comfort of this bad boy. I also own a 000 martin, and this guitar plays just as well for a fourth of the price. Blueridge really made a great affordable guitar here. I would recommend this product for any style of acoustic playing and any skill level level of playing. GREAT GUITAR!
If you want a great guitar for gigging and such that you dont mind getting belt buckle scrapes and such on, look no further. Just put in a Fishman acoustic matrix and you'll be set. Tiny size is ultra comfy and good for strumming and fingerpicking. Doesnt sound as full as the Br-60 (dreadnought) which is only solid top too. Doesnt sound as good as all solidwood either (you probably knew that) Great as a working guitar when you wanna leave the Martin or Taylor at home.
This guitar is the best acoustic guitar I've ever had the pleasure to play Santeria on! It's playability is unmatched in my book, its not overbuilt, and its comfortability.
