Blueridge Guitars: BR40

by Guitar Guru

”A Beginner’s Guitar at an Eye-Popping Price”

The Blueridge BR-40 Dreadnought acoustic guitar puts owning a solid-top guitar within the reach of even those beginning guitarists who are on a budget. At ~$369, the BR-40 will not break the bank and provides the beginning student with all of the benefits of playing a solid top guitar.

Guitar reviews consistently agree that a solid top acoustic guitar simply sounds better than one which is made out of laminated wood. The tone, volume, resonance and projection are all decidedly improved with solid top models and being able to enjoy these benefits will help the beginning guitarist in sticking with their commitment to learn guitar; this is a benefit that the Blueridge BR-40 definitely has to offer.

Another benefit to a solid top model is the fact that it holds its tune longer, meaning that you will not have to continually retune your instrument in order to play and that you can stop cringing when the notes start clashing.

Built on a dreadnought body, the BR-40 is no blushing violet. This is a large guitar with a large sound thanks to its deeply built body and broad shoulders; attributes that have made the dreadnought models of all guitar brands some of the most popular guitars ever sold.

The BR-40 may not be as fancy in appearance as some models. While it can be a bit difficult to handle for smaller players or those with smaller fingers due to its neck size, the BR-40 can make an excellent choice for those who are looking for a great beginner’s acoustic guitar. Or, it’s a great choice for those looking to upgrade from their less well-made model.

Mind you that you can get a solid top guitar that plays just as well as the Blueridge BR-40, the
Takamine G340sc Solid Top Cutaway Dreadnought
, for $70 less. But regardless of which model you choose, you can protect your investment with a Musician's Gear Deluxe Dreadnought Case for just an additional $49-$70, a great deal if you are looking to take your instrument seriously.
