Blueridge

A versatile guitar with all-solid tonewoods and deluxe inlays.

Traditional bracing with solid mahogany back and sides give the BR-140 a pure vintage sound. This understated yet, elegant guitar has a sound and vibe that's perfect for any style of acoustic music. At a price that's hard to beat, it has fine black and white top purfling with original abalone and pearl inlay work on the headstock that are touches of fine art. Other features include all solid Honduran mahogany back and sides and solid Sitka spruce top.

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.

    Comments about Blueridge Historic Series BR-140 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    First on-line instrument purchase. Didn't think I'd ever buy a guitar without playing it. Played other Blueridge models ( and was impressed) but wanted the one that was closest to my favorite, yet out of reach D18. Ordered the BR 140 as I couldn't find it anywhere. It arrived well packaged. I tuned it and that's it. Perfect! Sounds and plays even better than I expected. Rich, full tone. Great for all styles. Nice feel. Easy to play.
