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

    I've owned approximately 20 acoustics at least, many very high end hand made USA instruments. I love him end timbers such as Adirondack, Cocobolo, etc, so my taste is aimed pretty high. VERY fussy with the sound of my instruments. I LOVE my Blueridge BR-70.

    It's hard to believe this is a solid top guitar, with laminate back and sides. It has a fabulous bass, huge volume ( ie can be very loud ) , great dymanic range, ( can play soft to loud ) excellent neck which is fast, straight and reasonably low. Rich warm tone with great definition between strings. Nice sustain, although this is where a solid back and sides would help a bit. I play this 10 times more than my really nice Martin D35. It stays in the case, and the Blueridge is always out ready to be played. It is a most satisfying instrument to play on many levels. I believe the back of mine might be jacaranda ( some call it Brazilian rosewood, but it's not ) I could keep gushing about this guitar all night. Every time I play it always amazes me and inspires me.
    Owned a BR160a that I never could warm too. Neck was too narrow and it just never warmed up. The BR 70 spoke to me the moment I played it in the guitar store, even though it had pretty dead strings and the action was too low and buzzing. Even then I could tell had to come home with me. I could sell all my others and be quite happy with this one. Say no more.

    Excellent, beautiful looking and sounding guitar

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

    I bought this used from Guitar Center (Kentucky?) and it is an amazing sounding and looking guitar - measured the bridge and found nothing out of place (like the previous review). worked a little to get the saddle down lower and put on the d'addario coated 80/20 strings on and it sounds fabulous!! It also came with a Golden Gate, beautiful case that's worth about $120.00 The guitar tech @ Guitar Center added a LR Baggs AnthemTru Mic pickup (a $299.00 pickup) and it really sounds awesome! I play it thru a Fender Mustang 1 amp and I would put this setup against any factory installed pickup guitar - Looks beautiful, sounds beautiful and plays very nice. Try one, u will be happy u did!! For the money, can't beat it!! Hard to believe it's made in China!

    I wouldn`t recommend this guitar

    By Jack

    from east longmeadow, MA

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

    The bridge location was about 1/8" off. The guitar, tuned to pitch played flat. The strings were set low but the guitar still played rough. I judged the guitars tone to be well below that of a 2 or $3000 Martin. If it is supposed to compete with guitars in that price range it doesn`t . If the bridge had been located properly I would say it would be worth the asking price, but no more.
