Comments about Blueridge Historic Series BR-140 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I was hesitant at the thought of buying a guitar that was made overseas, but I had seen only positive reviews of Blueridge guitars, and noticed that one of my favorite female artists plays one, so I decided to take a chance and buy one for myself. I was very impressed when I received it with the way this guitar is made. I'm sure that it is produced in large quantities, but it rivals the quality of my other, more expensive guitars. Out of the box the action was slightly high at the twelfth fret so I took it to Guitar Center and spoke with their tech who requested that I give it a couple weeks to acclimate to the dry air here in Denver before requesting any adjustments be made. Two days later the action miraculously lowered on its own and now the guitar is easy to play all the way up the neck with near perfect intonation. I have a Tascam portable digital recorder on which I have recorded the same two songs on all of my acoustic guitars which include a Martin D35, Taylor 615, Larrivee D10, D5, and SD60, and my 40 year old Guild D35. I started doing this several years ago so I could compare one guitar with another. I have to say that this guitar at one fourth the cost of the big guns sounds as good or even maybe a little better in some cases than any of the others. I have the proof on a flash drive if needed. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

    Comments about Blueridge Historic Series BR-140 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    GC as always is on the ball! This is an enormous value for sure. I've owned, and still own many fine guitars, Gibson, Martin, and Taylor and others... and this Blueridge plays neck to neck with any of them. The volume is quite loud, thick, rich, deep yet bright, penetrating, and balanced with rich lows, and crystal clear high trebs. I find this guitar to play and feel, and sound very much like a $2500 Martin D-18...which I almost bought....till I tried this BR-140. ...it fully cured my D-18 GAS! ..I now have my Martin D-18, and for $2000 less. Save yourself two grand...get this Blueridge BR-140. All solid honduran mahogany, back and sides, beautiful, and solid sitka top..rosewood fret board and bridge..genuine bone nut and saddle. Frets were dressed well, no glue slop inside like Gibsons. The poly finish is beautiful and durable, it will NEVER cloud up and deteriorate like nitro finishes or become sticky on the neck when playing and sweating...never.....that is one of the things I absolutely LOVE about this guitar. And it has the rich CLARITY and VOLUME in get in a D-18 for thousands less. I love the unique Dalmation pick guard...and I especially love the genuine mother of pearl inlays on the head stock..they are intricate and flawless, and it makes the D-18 look drab and uninteresting campared to this guitar. I would imagine Martin has a lot of heartburn over this $500 Chinese made D-18....and they should..it's real good with new strings and a nice set up. Bottom line...Does the Martin D-18 play and sound better? ..maybe just a TINY bit...Is the Martin D-18 worth $2000 more...that's just rediculous. Get this guitar if you want a D-18. You won't regret it. It is a real steal, and a real deal, and probably the best kept secret in the guitar industry. The secret is out! Get it TODAY!!!
