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.

Setting even higher standards of quality, value and innovation by adding to those same great features a solid Adirondack spruce top, and you get one great guitar...the BR-160A! It really packs that Pre-War Punch at a price anyone can afford!
