Blueridge Guitars: BR143A
by Guitar Guru
” Vintage Guitar with an Authentic Vintage Sound”
The Blueridge BR143A Adirondack Top Craftsman Series 000 Acoustic Guitar is vintage guitar with attitude; a very playable attitude and a tone that you will fall in love with.
You’ve probably caught a glimpse of this kind of guitar in period movies. It’s the guitar the jazz player is using to play that hot smoky number or the guitar that is strummed on the front porch of the southern bungalow in the cool of the evening.
If ever you’ve wanted to own a guitar that has all of the prewar Golden Age touches that make for a truly awesome sounding reconstruction, you need look no further. From its solid Adirondack spruce top
to its choice solid mahogany sides and back
, this beauty could have walked out of blue’s club in Chicago. As beautifully crafted as it is to play, the BR143A will have you wishing that you could somehow slip back through time and experience the true energy of the Golden Age of Guitar.
Built on a 000 body, the BR143A has hand carved parabolic top braces which, when combined with the choice of woods, lends to the BR143A’s authentic woody tone; the kind of guitar which, when you hear it played makes you say “now THAT is what a guitar is supposed to sound like!” Its curvy body makes it easy to cuddle up to and projects surprisingly well for a guitar of this size though it may not do well in large crowds without amplification. It also tends to get drowned out if it is used with other, bigger guitars.
At ~$699 the Blueridge BR143A is not a cheap guitar, but it does play extremely well. In fact you’d have to trade up to a
Bedell Performance MB-18 Orchestra Acoustic Guitar
to get the same quality of tone, but you’d probably flinch at the $999 Bedell price tag. If you do opt for the BR143A, at least take the opportunity to protect your investment. A
Silver Creek Vintage Archtop 000 Auditorium Acoustic Guitar Case
