Designed in collaboration
with the multi-talented bluegrass and country legend Randy Waller, the new BG-180RW is truly a stunning guitar, both visually and tonally.
This model has all the best; solid spruce top, solid Indian rosewood back and sides, and unique, refined details upgraded to produce a n exquisite, one of a kind guitar. You’ve never seen one quite like this!
The folks at Saga are always impress us at Beyond Guitars because they’re always looking for new and very interesting ways to produce another high quality guitar, adding a flair of originality.
So they combined the already great features of the popular and well established Blueridge soft-shoulder guitar series with a look that has absolutely never been done in a guitar of this design. That includes genuine abalone used to trim all borders and a unique ebony (rather than rosewood) fingerboard and lovely peghead inlay to complete the picture. Once again, another Saga first!
