OVERVIEW

A beautiful work of art that's a joy to play.

The BR-243 delivers pre-war style and tone for less in the popular 000 body shape. Using only the finest materials such as a select solid Adirondack top, hand-carved forward shifted X-bracing, choice solid mahogany back and sides, and a traditional dovetail neck joint all speaks of a hard-to-find pre-war box. Expertly applied tortoise binding adorns the body and soundhole. The intricate floral-design pearl and abalone inlay work on the headstock and the Dalmatian, tortoise-style pickguard is a touch of fine art. Case sold separately.

    Comments about Blueridge Pre-War Series BR-243A 000 Acoustic Guitar:

    Perhaps one of the finest acoustics I have owned in 4 decades of play. The Adirondack/Mahogany combination is perhaps one of the most balanced tones available. If this guitar was made in the USA it would be in the 4-5k range.
