This BR-163A 000-sized guitar is packed with tradition.
And the traditional Herringbone binding is just the beginning.
It has a tone to challenge any similar guitar at four times the price. The A in the name of this guitar tells us that this guitar was created with a genuine Adirondack spruce wood -solid top, and traditional forward x-bracing supporting it. The best woods guarantee the best tone and volume. Surprisingly a guitar this size has wonderful deep tones. The combination of the adirondack spruce with the back and sides made of the finest solid rosewood takes us back to a time when the finest American made guitars were made in the 1930s and 1940s. Additionally the slim, fully-adjustable mahogany neck makes playing fast and easy and the delicate Herringbone top purfling adds a touch of class.
Amateurs and professional musicians all over the world appreciate the quality in materials, workmanship and the real end game, the sound that Blueridge has attained with guitars just like this one. Make no mistake, this is true pro quality at a very reasonable price. A value that is next to impossible to beat!
