Thread Name: Blueridge guitars - best sellers
Subject: Blueridge guitars - best sellers
I have been reading the threads on expensive guitars, and I though that I would add a dealer's insight.
I have a small acoustic music store in eats Tennessee. i don't do internet sales or mailorder.
Unlike many of the other guitar distributors, Saga consistently provides good Blueridge guitars. Some of their other lines are weaker.
Nationally, their two best-sellers are the dreadnaught size BR40 (laminate mahogany) and BR 160 (solid rosewood). In my store, BR 60 (laminate rosewood) and the BR OOO 163 sell the best.
My favorite blueridge models are the BR 140 (solid mahogany) and the 183 000 (solid rosewood).
In my place, all of the instruments can be played, and I'll get out the extra instrumenst in a particular model. The BR 160 and BR 180 are in a row with a 2000' HD28 martin, 68' J45 Gibson, and a high-end Tack.
