The Blueridge BR-42 acoustic guitar offers big tone in a small package! The 12-fret neck and standard OOO body yield a deep and unique tone that you won't get with another model. The select, solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides produce a clear, crisp tone that records well. A slim, fast mahogany neck and a beautiful natural gloss finish highlight the superb value that makes the Blueridge BR-42 a great buy!

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.
