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.
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 WWII, Blueridge guitars are made with the same techniques as their antique counterparts, including many by-hand processes.

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.

4 of 5 Guitar Review April 23, 2009
Reviewer: Bruce MacLennan from Invermere, BC Canada  
I recently recieved my new Blueridge BR-140 six string dreadnought.  It is a beautiful instrument to look at - very pleased with the appearance.  The gloss finish is excellent, and while I prefer a more matte finish, I have since taken a "shine" to the glossy look.
It came with an arch-top case.

The set-up was noticeably high, and it appeared to have been fitted with medium gauge strings.  I lowered the action a bit at the saddle and installed a set of extra-light strings - what a difference in sound and playability for my type of music (folk).  It sounds terrific and I would put it up against any moderate-priced Martins I have tried.

I have read several reviews about this guitar and a lot of folks have mentioned problematic tuners, but I have hadno such bad experiences as of yet.  They operate freely and stay put.  The lighter strings may have someting to do with that, too.

Very nice guitar and I am over all very pleased with it.  I would certanly buy another.
