Subject: RE: Blueridge guitars - best sellers
Actually Blueridge as a Gibson line of clones .. the BG series. The BR line is the Martin clones.
As per warranty .... it's a year. I suspect it could be a bit frustrating dealing with Saga concerning any issues. Since these guitars are manufactured in some mysterious part of China, exactly where no one seems to know, dealing with warranty issues there could be a slight communication problem. Overall I find them to be very well crafted instruments, they certainly can hold their own when it comes to the more expensive established brands. That is why I mentioned above, they are inexpensive, and that's part of the chance you take. They are not a Martin, Taylor, Santa Cruz, who have substantial marketing groups, hence a solid warranty to back them. How long they'll last I dunno, but I'm sure mine will outlive me. I myself havent had any issues with my BR 160. I know personally one other person who owns a BG model. He's had no issues with his BG, and is completely satisfied with his. I should mention he is also an owner of a Gibson 1967 j200.
