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.
