Overview

A masterpiece of solid tonewoods, intricate inlays and Fishman Presys Blend electronics.

By popular demand, Blueridge has now combined leading brand pickup technology from Fishman, a deep cutaway and the legendary tone powerhouse of the Historic series BR-180. Each guitar is crafted to be light and resonant, but now offers even greater flexibility with electronics for use in any live or recording situation. And just like every other Blueridge guitar in the line, meticulous attention to detail and quality craftsmanship goes hand-in-hand with these modern refinements.

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.
