How beautiful can a guitar be?

The BR-70AS is a beautiful example of true guitar hand craftsmanship, and yet it’s got a remarkable price.

Solid Adirondak spruce.. it’s got the old, classic tone of the 1930s. It’s only recently brought back! Combine these rare classic tonewoods–Santos rosewood and solid, Adirondack spruce–and you have the makings of a classic sounding guitar, the Br-70AS. In addition to this, the top edge and rosette are hand-inlaid with gorgeous, genuine abalone pearl – and the top is then finished in an awesome prewar style sunburst that gives it a true lovely classic look! The hexagonal outline abalone fingerboard inlays and the gold-plated tuners complete the elegance of the BR-70AS–a vintage collectible that will certainly grab admiration for many years to come.

The skill of the Blueridge luthiers is never so well expressed as with these contemporary craftsman series guitars. They are definitely a cut above the field at this price point. There are three key areas of guitar craftsmanship that we judge a guitar on: 1. Sound quality- tone, depth and response, essential to express your music. 2. Ergonomics- neck profile, string action and body shape are essential to accuracy, playing comfort and speed. 3. Appearance- Never underestimate how much the rich style and appointments of a beautiful instrument can enhance a performance.
