the color is dirty blond top and gorgeous back and sides. the detail is awesome. I play gospel bluegrass and blues and they all sound great coming from this guitar, I play rythm and the blue grassers really like it
I purchased this guitar from 8th street music and i paid 550 dollars because it had a rattle that my luthier fixed real easy.I had one of these and it was stolen. i loved the guitar so i bought another one.
I love the detail and the abalone but the sound is wonderful. I put tusq pins and a plate mate in it and wow!!!!!
some of the tuners are hard to turn but a shot of oil should fix that.
As far as i can see the construction and quality of the unit is outstanding. I had my other one three years with no problems.
This guitar is the best i have owned and that includes a 1000 dollar martin. the beauty and sound together make this maybe the best guitar in its price range. I saw some on the net today that were 746 dollars. You may have to hear one to understand.
I bought it from Maury`s Music ,it was an online purchase from Maury`s website.It was $394.00
This guitar is one of the best sounding guitars I have ever played.I have owned alot of really nice acoustic guitars,a D28 Martin,Gibson J200,Taylor Dan Crarey model,0001 Martin and a bunch of other guitars Alvarez Yairi DY45 a couple Yamahas and Ibanez,a couple Ovations .Every time I pick up the BR70 I can`t put it down,the tone is amazing ,it sounds as good if not better than alot of high end guitar I have played.
the tuners aren`t that great.
the construction is very good,the BR70 I got is very neat and clean inside,no globs of glue or anything like that.
I have always been a you get what you pay for believer,but this guitar is much ,much more than I paid for.It sounds as good as any D28 Martin I have played ,not to say it sounds just like one but as good.The tone is very crisp and clean with plenty of bass ,a very well balanced guitar,with plenty of volume.
I recently bought a Blueridge BR-70 off the internet ($405 w/case). I bought it "Pig in a poke" based on having played a BR-160.
I didn't know what the BR-70 would sound like. I bought it based on the description, picture, and the fact that I had played the BR-160. It has the good looks of a D-41 Martin and the neck of a J-45 Gibson. It plays easy and has an excellent strong voice.
So far, there's not a thing I would change.
Furniture, fit, and finish on this one is as good as it gets. I'll put next to any other guitar on the market regardless of price.
This is a guitar that plays and sounds as good as it looks. Time is the final test of any good guitar. Playability is something that can be controlled to a certain extent, but, age dictates the tonal characteristics and drive. The good ones usually get better with age. If this one lives up to that theory, it will be the best guitar I've ever owned.
