Blueridge

A traditionally built instrument with all-solid tonewoods and Fishman electronics.

The BR-163CE is an extremely versatile instrument and is made from only the best materials with real modern features. It features a solid Sitka spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides for a well-balanced tone. The smaller body shape is extra comfortable and the Fishman transducer system make this one an excellent choice for performing on stage.

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-163CE 000 Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I *** NEVER *** thought I would buy a guitar without playing it first. I bought this after reading Internet reviews. This is by far the best guitar purchase I've ever made! Superior workmanship. I used to own a Martin EC Signature 000-28. This is very close to it! I highly recommend Blueridge guitars!
