OVERVIEW

With exquisite Santos rosewood back and sides, and a full D-41 style abalone trim...the BR-70 dreadnought is right at home on the stage or in your living room. Faithfully delivers solid pre-war tone with a sharp modern look. Expertly applied white binding adorns the body, neck, and headstock. The abalone and pearl inlay work on the headstock and the back center stripe of intricate wood marquetry are touches of fine art. Aged-tone finish completes the look. The slim mahogany neck and traditional dreadnaught body make it a truly enjoyable guitar to play.

A full-size guitar featuring craftsman construction and select tonewoods.

    I was going to cancel this order,but it was already sent out and I am glad it didn't cancel. I was going to buy the Br-180,but this one is unbelievable in looks quality and sound. Right out of the box it's setup perfect !!! I will change the strings to extra light and I will be good to go. Thanks for the great product !!

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

      I actually ordered a less expensive Blueridge model for a Christmas gift but when the guitar came it was another brand of far less quality. When I called customer service at Musician's Friend, the model I had ordered was now sold out. The representative was nice enough to let me choose the BR-70 for a replacement at no extra charge! This is a very nice guitar for the money. Brazilian Rosewood on a guitar at this price, you have to be kidding! To keep it brief, I have played some very expensive instruments in some thirty years and this guitar sounds as good as many costing thousands! Also, the folks at Musician's Friend treated me right. I will continue to do business with them!

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

        Beautifully crafted masterpiece. Sound-range- tone- bass. It is a Lipazon Stallion anything the musican is capable of playing, this guitar can produce. The harmonics,melodies,rich notes excellent neck feel and action. One of most responsive guitar, I have played. I own Martin Gibson, Taylor, Fender, Gretch,Epiphone,and Alvarez. My Blueridge 70 is one of my "PET Favirites. Buy this guitar (Two or three of them) before the price goes up to where it should be!!!! Do your music a favor, Add a Blueridge 70 to your collection. MY oath on it. 50 years of loving Guitars, if I could only have Two guitars this would be; "the other one". (To quote; "Nicolas Cage")

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

          Guitar is amazing. I would put mine above any Taylor of Martin, which is bias but it's because I love my guitar. Buy one of these and you'll fall in love with everything about it. Incredibly loud yet somehow the action is so gentle the guitar plays itself. It's a suspiciously light guitar, when it's in a hard case, you can almost find yourself second guessing if it's really in there.

          The one con I could think of is that there is a little more mother of pearl than I think is needed. Doesn't really fit the personality of the guitar. Obviously I'm splitting hairs and that is really a matter of opinion. This is the nicest instrument I've ever purchased. If you are making your first serious guitar buy, don't buy a Martin just for the name's sake. Get a BR-70 and join the revolution!
