Blueridge Guitars: BG160 Slope Shoulder
by Guitar Guru
”Top Quality Sound for a Rock Bottom Price”
The Blueridge BG-160 Contemporary Series Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar is one of those rare instruments that combines a lightweight building method with quality craftsmanship to produce a vibrantly big sound without the weight you might expect.
For just ~$821 you can own a solid wood slope shouldered dreadnought that sounds as if it should cost you much more. From its solid spruce top
to its solid rosewood back and sides
, the BG-160 offers up a resonant, full-bodied tone that will let you be heard in just about any circumstance and over just about any size of crowd.
With the breadth and depth of a dreadnought but with the slope shouldered touch, this instrument will quickly become one of your favorites. Combine how smoothly it plays with how great it looks combined with lovely pearl inlays, this guitar brings to mind some of the most beautiful instruments of days gone by.
Keep in mind, however, that this is not a small guitar. The big vibrant sound of the BG-160 comes with a big body that can be difficult for smaller or younger players, though the slope shoulders make it easier to handle than the standard dreadnought shape.
One of the great things about the Blueridge BG-160 is the fact that for an affordable price you can get a guitar that you would normally have to pay a good $5,500 more for. If you like the tone of the BG-160, you can find a comparable sound in the
Gibson 1942 J-45 Legend Acoustic Guitar
. But the Gibson is not a cheap acoustic guitar, so unless you feel like you absolutely have to have a Gibson, you will find that the Blueridge BG-160 will make for a good priced alternative, especially if you don’t have an extra five thousand laying around.Shop safe at Musician's Friend
