    Comments about Blueridge Contemporary Series BR-42 000 Acoustic Guitar:

    I probably would not purchase another Blueridge without playing it in person first. This is the second one I've owned of this body size. The BR-42 has an okay sound, but I wouldn't call it 'rich' or 'full bodied'.

    The neck humps up where it joins the body. Not all BR guitars are the same, but I'd never buy another one without making sure the neck wasn't dead straight at this point. Lowering the action from the mile-high factory setting only creates buzzing.

    For the money, I'd save a little more and get a lower end Larrivee or Taylor.
