Thread Name: Blueridge guitars - best sellers
Subject: RE: Blueridge guitars - best sellers
Actually I have a Blueridge .... Up until a while ago I'd only consider a non-Pacific rim made guitar ... last fall I started to hear accolades about the Blueridges .... I wouldn't even consider trying one these Chinese axes ... eventually I was persuaded by to try and test drive one from a local music store .... it absolutely blew me away .... this model had great sound, tone, solid rosewood body, sitka spruce top, bone bridge and saddle, well crafted workmanship .... and for the price it couldn't be beat ... so I bought one. You'll hear all these comparisons that they are equal or better than a Martin which they are clones of ... though I'm not going to venture in that area I can assure you that they are certainly worth the money ... they are cheap guitars that deliver top notch sound and playability.
There are now a few excellent oriental manufactured guitars out there along with the Blueridges such as the Epiphone Masterbuilt, and Tanglewoods. These allow people who can't afford any of the higher end brands as Martins, Taylors, Laravees etc to have the opportunity to own and develop there craft on a good guitar.
