It was just the sound I was looking for and the one I got was very close in sound to the demo videos. The instrument is a pleasure to hold and play as well as listen to. Additional Comments: I purchased this to be my knock around guitar. While this is not in the class with my 00 - 00 guitars, I believe it's not far from them and certainly not in the class with the other brand guitars in this price range. Love the neck nice full feel for Blueridge and 1 3/4in nut width makes it great for flatpicking bluegrass runs. I owned one and it had issues with neck set and saddle. In fact it will be my mine acoustic when I gig at Hilton Head Island this summer.
If you want that vintage sound, this is a great choice. Came set-up as good as my Goodall, Taylor's, Breedlove and Martin. If you know how to play, this guitar will make you sound very good! The BR140A is very well made neck and relief is perfect. This BR-140A sounds beautiful with adi top and neck has nice full feel not skinny feeling. Name: Tim George Date: March 11 2011 Review: BR-140A Rating you give the BR-140A: 4 - Highly recommend it Likes: Balanced tone of highs & lows with plenty of punch Dislikes: none Additional Comments: Very comparable with a Martin D18V without the D18V price.
These new models take advantage of "Thermal Top" technology, in which the spruce wood for the guitar tops are baked in a controlled high-heat, low-oxygen environment.
The result is the volume and tone of a well-seasoned vintage guitar in a brand new instrument.
I am happy to see they now ship with the bottom end pin out. It is laminate body and so will make an excellent campfire guitar. Additional Comments: I had been going to various music stores and playing all the name brands at this price point and the Blueridge BR-40 was the definite winner. In order to find out the date your guitar was made and the workshop of origin, it is necessary to first identify the ‘era’ in which it was made. Since we were true to our times and rather ‘laid back’ about everything other than the guitars themselves, we do not have extensive detailed serial number archives for the early years.The Acoustic Guitar Forum is the world's largest and most active acoustic guitar community bringing communication, real time discussion, and relevant information to acoustic guitar enthusiasts, artists, guitar builders, manufacturers, and retailers.
