Blueridge BR 70 - superb guitars

By John Nils C.

from Undisclosed

Comments about Blueridge Contemporary Series BR-70 Adirondack Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I have owned the Sitka spruce topped version of this for about 3 years, I also own a Blueridge BG 160 ( see my review ). Blueridges are extremely good values, the build and sound quality far exceeds the cost. My BR 70 has beautifully grained Brazillian rosewood back and sides and a very nice tight grained top. The woods are all 1st class. The hexagonal neck inlays are really well done, the abalone purfling on the top and in the rossette are absolutely luminous, they are beautiful. This is one handsome guitar, a very nice Martin D41 copy. I personally find the headstock very attractive with nice MOP inlay, the neck is slim, reminds me of my Telecaster and plays fast. Sound is loud and articulate, bass is tight and piano like, the Sitka top is dynamic and highlights the fundamentals of the sound, with the stiffer Adirondack top the fundamentals and the overtones would be highlighted. Adirondack was Martins top wood on all their pre war models which are highly desirable today. I had ordered a Crafter TR060VLS and the abalone and inlays looked crude next to my Blueridges I sent it back and got the BG 160, these guitar are built as nice as any out there. I would buy another Blueridge in a heart beat. I highly recommend these.

Comments about Blueridge Contemporary Series BR-70 Adirondack Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I own 9 guitars including a d28 martin. Although I love my martin and everything about it I own 2 blueridge guitars including the br70as which is my favorite to play. It plays and sounds as good as any. You will be pleased with it. I want the br a160as next.
