The Historic Series offers authentic style, paying close attention to the details of the most sought after pre-war instruments. The BR-163, built in the comfortable 000-sized body makes not only a truly enjoyable guitar to play, but the ultimate finger picking guitar in its price range. Crafted with a select solid spruce top, hand-carved X-bracing, choice solid rosewood back and sides, with herringbone top trim and a traditional dovetail neck joint.
Like the best instruments, Blueridge guitars aren't overbuilt; they're crafted to be light and resonant. Meticulous attention to detail and quality craftsmanship is evident in the traditional, forward-position, hand-carved parabolic X-bracing which allows the solid Spruce top to ring loud and true. Blueridge guitars feature a traditional dovetail neck joint, slim mahogany neck, adjustable truss rod, and butterbean-button, Kluson-style tuning machines with an updated mechanism for modern precision and feel.
