Description Technical Specs

Any similar “boutique” guitar with all the features of our BR-183A could easily set you back ten grand! For a fraction of that price, you can have a Blueridge™ with a genuine Adirondack Spruce top, the finest solid rosewood back and sides, and lavish abalone pearl on every border—plus a tone that rivals any new guitar made! All this value comes standard on every guitar we make, and our most expensive models are arguably the best bargains for the money in the music industry today!

Everybody knows that rare, Adirondack Spruce was the favored top wood on the majority of the Classic, Pre-War guitars that are so collectible and valuable today. The luthiers at Blueridge have found a supply of this precious wood, and, when combined with the solid Indian Rosewood and lavish pearl inlay of our model BR-180A, the result is the finest tone and the most elegant look that money can buy! Compare the BR-180A to any Pre-war OR Modern guitar costing thousands more--you'll be amazed!

The Blueridge BR-183A is the ultimate fingerpicking guitar. With its "000" size and lavish abalone pearl on all borders, this guitar is sure to turn many a pickers head! Its striking beauty is matched only by its full, rich, and great responsive tone. Crafted with a select solid spruce top, hand-carved forward shifted X-bracing, choice solid rosewood back and sides, mahogany neck and traditional dovetail neck joint. This Blueridge is a fingerpickers dream and a real treat to play!

One look at any Blueridge guitar will tell you that the craftsmandship, style and quality of the Golden Era are still alive and plainly evident in every guitar with the Blueridge name. The intricate MOP inlays, the careful workmanship and tremendous tonal quality of each Blueridge ensure that these fine guitars will be highly collectible. They're most definitely the benchmark of value and affordability today. Like the finest guitars of the Golden Era, each Blueridge has the traditional dovetail neck/body joint and each model's neck features an adjustable truss rod. The Kluson-style enclosed tuning machines with "butterbean" buttons, in either gold or nickel, have the perfect vintage look yet offer modern precision and feel.

Awesome April 7, 2015
Reviewer: Philip Stearns from Santa Barbara, CA United States  
This is an awesome guitar! And this is an awesome guitar shop! I'm extremely pleased with the product and the service was excellent. This was a pre-order that was processed expeditiously. With the best pricing and service available, I highly recommend Instrument Alley.

Nice, but not finished well January 19, 2015
Reviewer: Bill from PA United States  
I had just recently purchased a BR-182 from IA and after waiting 4 months for that special order to be built I found that Blueridge had done a wonderful job with it.  Virtually flawless.  Based on that, I ordered a BR-183A but took delivery of a guitar with a few minor blems in the finish, the frets were cut but never finished and so caught my hand every time I moved around the fretboard and finally, one of the tuners (cheap tuners too) was installed so that it's bseplate actually extended past the headstock (i.e., crooked). So, I am disappointed that it wasn't finished as well as the BR-182. Last Blueridge for me based on this one.  Where's the QC?? It does have redeeming values however, decent wood and inlay work.  Only time will tell how it holds up as it matures!  Plays reasonably well and projection is good out of the box with the Adi top.

Customer Service June 3, 2014
Reviewer: Larry H. from Andover, KS United States  
I ordered a Blueridge BR-183-A acoustic guitar from Instrument Alley and I couldn't be happier with the customer service I received. Ben went that extra mile that is lacking in most businesses today. I wish more people would take their lead. Their communications was excellent and timely and their prices were very good as well. And by the way, the guitar looked and sounded awesome. They were great to work with. Thanks Ben!

Great Guitar and Service March 24, 2014

Received this guitar about 7 days after I purchased it at Purchase included a set-up by instrument alley. The looks, sound and feel of this guitar are all beautiful. This guitar was very playable right after I got it and tuned it up.
Love this guitar and I'm very happy with the service I received at Instrument Alley.
Thanks to Ben and all his colleagues at Instrument Alley, whose efforts made this a great purchase.
