OVERVIEW

Exquisite details, all solid woods, and Fishman electronics make this pre-war inspired guitar an instant classic.

Inspired by pre-war "Herringbone" dreadnoughts, this Custom BR-160's great sound and great looks are just part of what will make it one of the more desirable vintage-style acoustic guitars in production today. It starts with a solid Sitka spruce top and hand-carved parabolic top braces that respect the pre-war forward X-pattern. Indian rosewood back and sides add a strong bass to the spruce top's already full sound.

The slim mahogany neck is comfortable and features a dovetail neck joint and adjustable truss rod. Beautiful appointments include a Dalmation style pickguard and mother-of-pearl neck and headstock inlays. Last, but not least, this particular custom model also features the tried-and-true Fishman Sonicore soundhole mounted preamp with volume and tone control to make this guitar more versatile for you.

Blueridge is an offshoot of the South San Francisco-based Saga Musical Instrument Company. Blueridge specializes in "traditional" guitars that offer today's player vintage styling with modern performance at a level of quality and price that compares favorably to historic guitars. Each instrument is the result of detailed research and is carefully crafted at the Blueridge factory. Consistency is evident throughout, from the fretwork to the intricate inlays that adorn each Blueridge headstock. Case sold separately.

    Comments about Blueridge Custom BR-160 Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I have been a Christian musician 40 plus years, this one of the best guitars I have ever owned, fret work was great out of the box, little set up work great player, I own and have owned Martin ,Taylor, Gibson, & other brands, not going to say it compares with HD28 Martin, but it's not far from it for the price difference, overall this is best sounding, best playability, I have found in this price range!

        Comments about Blueridge Custom BR-160 Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I can't believe this guitar sounds so good! It is so much like my old Martin D28 that was much more expensive. I am glad I sold my Martin because this is as good or better I feel ! So much cheaper and workmanship is top quality....Woods are excellent,feel is great..
