Blueridge Guitars: BR70
by Guitar Guru
”An Elegant Guitar for Dreadnought Lovers”
The Blueridge Contemporary Series BR70 Adirondack Dreadnaught Acoustic Guitar is a study in elegance. From its solid Adirondack spruce top
to its Choice Brazilian rosewood body and carved mahogany neck, the BR70 offers all the best features of a workhorse dreadnought combined with the artistic features that made prewar Golden Age guitars such treasures.
The BR70 uses tonewoods that give it rich, rounded warmth that is a joy to play, but it’s the dreadnought body that gives this classic number the volume and projection that have made dreadnoughts the most popular guitar model of all time. And at just ~$799, you will be saving yourself a considerable amount of money; in order to get a guitar of this quality of sound you would have to purchase a
Guild D40 Bluegrass Jubilee Guitar
which would run you a good $1200 more than you would pay for the Blueridge.
But it isn’t just the tone and sound of this instrument that will make you fall in love. It’s also the sheer aesthetics, including the 1930’s style sunburst finish and the intricate abalone pearl inlay around the rosette that give it an elegance you would not normally expect from a guitar within this price range.
Don’t let the size of the BR70 scare you off, because unless you have small hands or are a smaller built player, this guitar plays very smoothly, and sounds great even when you are practicing scales.
The Blueridge BR70 will give you everything you could possibly expect from a top quality dreadnought except a hardshell case. You will definitely need to protect your purchase; the
Golden Gate Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Case
, for example, can be had for just and additional ~$80. It is designed for dreadnoughts and will fit your BR70 perfectly. Shop safe at Musician's Friend
