If you've been searching for a Golden Era guitar that isn't priced like it's made of gold, then Blueridge guitars are for you. Reminiscent of fine American guitars built prior to WWI, Blueridge guitars are made with the same techniques as their antique counterparts, including many by-hand processes.
The Blueridge BR-343 Gospel Model Acoustic Guitar is carefully crafted and beautifully adorned with traditional symbols of the Christian faith. A magnificent abalone and pearl chalice and cross design graces the headstock, while the fingerboard bears the ancient triple locked-ring symbol for the Trinity. The BR-343 Gospel Model is crafted with a select solid spruce top, hand-carved X-bracing, choice mahogany back and sides, and a traditional dovetail neck joint for pure Golden Era tone. The slim mahogany neck and comfortable 000-sized body make it a truly enjoyable guitar to play.
A magnificent abalone and pearl chalice and cross graces the headstock, while the ancient locked ring symbol for the Trinity marks the fingerboard of the New Blueridge Gospel guitar- making it one of the most beautiful guitars ever made!

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.
