    Music Mart: The Blueridge Range leave the competition standing

    Vintage Guitar Magazine (USA): The Blueridge has a big, open, natural tone with clear bass, even mids, and shimmering top-end. No matter where I played on the neck, the tone remained full and crisp.

    Acoustic Guitar (USA):[The Blueridge BR-160] displayed a great dynamic range, retained its rich tone when played hard, and displayed good balance throughout its range.

    Guitar Player (USA):These affordable Chinese-made flat-tops are well made, and they play and sound quite amazing for the money.


    The Blueridge numbering system is very logical. Take BR-140 for example. The first digit denotes the series (1 for Historic, 2 for Pre-war, and the Contemporary models have this digit missed off). The second digit (or first digit if the model is Contemporary!) indicates the style (lower numbers for the simpler styles, 8 for the fanciest). The last digit is a 0 or a 3. 0 is for D style (dreadnought, a larger bodied guitar) and 3 is for the OOO (a small bodied guitar). So the BR-140 is a mid range Historic dreadnought.
