OVERVIEW

All solid woods, exquisite details and a special finish 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, is the Sunburst finish that takes it over the top aesthetically.

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.

    It is too bad this model has been discontinued as it is near the Martin d-28 as it gets.

      Comments about Blueridge Custom BR-160 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      Bought this instead of the natural BR-160 for the sunburst color. I use it as a practice guitar in an environment that I do not want to use my more expensive Martins. This guitar is very close to the HD-28 VTS I bought at the same time.
