Description Technical Specs
 
The Blueridge BR-180A Historic Series Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar is crafted with a select solid Adirondack spruce top, hand-carved X-bracing, ebony bridge, ebony fingerboard, choice solid Tonewood back and sides, and a traditional dovetail neck joint for pure Golden Era tone. Full D-45 style pearl and abalone ornamentation adorns the body, neck, and headstock, with an intricate abalone and pearl inlay on the headstock and a delicate wood marquetry back center strip. Aged finish completes the vintage Blueridge look. The slim mahogany neck and traditional dreadnought body make the Blueridge BR-180 a truly enjoyable guitar to play.

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.

Blueridge BR-180A Adirondack Top Tonewood Guitar Features:
  • Select and rare, solid Adirondack spruce top with hand-carved parabolic top braces in authentic prewar forward X-pattern
  • Premium solid Premium Tonewood back and sides with abalone pearl on all body edges and sound hole rosette
  • High-gloss finish with lightly aged top finish
  • Delicate marquetry center strip on back
  • One-piece mahogany neck with adjustable truss rod and traditional diamond volute on back of headstock
  • Premium ebony fingerboard and bridge
  • Abalone "snow flake' position markers on fingerboard
  • Tonewood peghead overlay with unique, mother-of-pearl and abalone design on peghead
  • Accurate vintage-style 14:1 ratio gold-plated open-back tuners with butterbean-style buttons
  • Nut and saddle are made from bone
  • Nut width: 1 3/4"
  • Scale Length: 25.5"
  • Shop Adjusted
  • Lifetime Warranty


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.

BR-180A purchase from Instrument Alley December 31, 2018
Reviewer: Michael Franklin from Clawson , MI United States  
Guitar was received in good order/carefully packaged-5 stars.  Instrument Alley had the best price I could find-5 stars.  Instrument build quality is very, very good.  Short of excellent because of a little rough patch on the upper top inch of the binding.  I also own a 2000 model year Martin D16GT and a 1992 Ibanez PF10.  The BR180A is now my top guitar in tone and aesthetics.  Played the guitar at my family Christmas party and people loved it.  My nephew who is a big Fan of Taylor was very impressed with the Bluerigde.  The factory set action is a bit too high for my liking, so I will have a setup to lower it.

my Blueridge BR 180 A,the guitar I always wanted.. August 9, 2016
Reviewer: Steve Phelps from Western Michigan  
My Blueridge BR 180 A is,hands down,THE best guitar I have ever owned.At my regular music jams,the volume of this guitar just blows away ANY OTHER GUITAR that is played,unplugged,a regular tone cannon.The wonderful bass is tremendous,the sustain goes on seems like forever.Has a D tar Wavelength pickup installed,sounds heavenly played thru my RMS acoustic amp.The all- over abalone inlay,fit and finish is top notch.This is a copy of a D 45,and at less than 25% of a Martin D 45 price,very affordable.I went through Maury's Music in Pennsylvania,I recommend them,and Blueridge Guitars,highly.Steve Phelps.

Blueridge BR-180A June 23, 2015
Reviewer: MATT HOUSMAN from Trinidad, CO United States  
Very pleased with my BR180A. Top notch quality, value & tone. There is absolutely no way to replace this guitar with a comparable guitar at this price point. You would have to pay 4 times the amount for an American counterpart. I own a Martin D41 and the BR180A sounds just as good.

Sales service March 9, 2014
Reviewer: Patrick Moore from Oxford, FL United States  
From start to finish the person (Ben) who handled my order was very helpful and considerate, via Email & phone.  After I decided to purchase it, the guitar was shipped promptly at the agreed upon price.  It was shipped on a Monday and arrived on Saturday of the same week, in perfect condition.  I would not hesitate to recommend  Instrument Alley for their service and competitive prices.
