Comments about Blueridge Contemporary Series BR-70 Adirondack Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

this is my second reviewed, first i was surprised by the look and materials and wondered how the sound would open in time.....well the bass did develop well...BUT because poor materials were used in the bridge plate(too thin), the plate cracked across where all the pins went in. were the holes to small perhaps,..but when i looked at my other guitars it was obvious that all of them were constructed with larger, and thicker pieces. Why construct a guitar with "adirondack spruce and rosewood",i.e., choice materials, only to skimp on the tuners,(poor quality), bridge plate, and quality inspection...the white plastic fretboard binding was cracked in 2 places and should be a bit wider down the neck. The guitar top was obviously 2 pieces of differing colors. The strings where they go across the bridge simply sit on the bone no compensated saddle or indents. If your building a reputation, heck use grovers,...and watch the easily fixed smaller details. This guitar sounds sweet, and has the potential to be a great guitar

    Comments about Blueridge Contemporary Series BR-70 Adirondack Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    this guit is very well made, and high gloss,...i'm picky so time will tell what age will do. i own martins, taylors, taks, and more. this is a real sound cannon and has rich sparkling mids and highs. i think because of the gloss and slightly smaller box that the bass will take time to ripen. i kept thinking of returning it, i am picky, but i couldn't let it go,..because of what it can do, not what it can't.

    Review of Blueridge (BR-70) Guitar

    By Stan the Guitar Man

    from Statesville, NC

    Comments about Blueridge Contemporary Series BR-70 Adirondack Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    I purchased the BR-70 about 9 months ago and have been very satisfied with it. From the first time I picked it up I have been amazed with the quality of this instrument. I have other fine name brand guitars but I seldom play any of them because I always go back to the BR-70. I play and sing gospel music using acoustic instruments "plugged in" and this guitar is perfect for what we do. I had an LR Baggs pick-up installed and plug straight into the sound system with very little "tweaking" and get a very good acoustic sound. Again, this guitar is a joy to play!!

    Comments about Blueridge Contemporary Series BR-70 Adirondack Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    I have been looking at Blueridge guitars for about a year. My local music shop exclusively stocks a wide range of BR guitars and swears by them. As I was on my quest to find "the" acoustic guitar that I knew I would be happy with, I played many different guitars of all types. I even got my hands on a few Martin D-28's and a Gibson or 2. Many of which did sound amazing and they sang very nice but the price tag on most of them was just heart cringing. But every time I came back to that BR shop, I picked up one and it would blow me away how rich and bright the tone would be. And what really spun my head was after hearing how great the tone was, seeing the price was even more of a shock! There are lots of negative reviews about this Brand, mainly because they are made in China. Well, people said the same thing about Honda cars when they first hit the market, and look at them now. When you buy a Martin, you are buying a history book and over priced American workmanship. They could very well sell their Martins and Gibson?s in this price range and be ok. Until then, I can spend a fraction of their price and buy a guitar that sounds just as good or better. If you choose a Blueridge, you won?t be disappointed, period.This Model 70 is the one I finally chose last week, and I?m glad I did. The vintage burst is beautiful, along with the wood grain. The abalone shimmers all around the guitar stealing looks and earning complements. Great craftsmanship and TONE. This guitar is loud, full bass and crisp highs.
