Thread Name: Blueridge guitars - best sellers
Subject: RE: Blueridge guitars - best sellers
IMHO, The Blueridge guitars are suitable for students and travel only. If one is looking for "character" in an instrument, although they may all play fine, hold intonation, etc., there is something seriously lacking in these guitars. I bought one a few years ago, on the recommendation of a woman in our local guitar shop, who cautioned that it took about a year for the personality to really develop. I made my purchase anyway, and two years later, was still waiting for something warm or pleasant to emerge. Luckily, I was able to trade it with a friend who had a vintage acoustic Hagstrom which was too big and unwieldy for him. He was happy with a small guitar with no character, just to use for practice and lug around on airplanes, etc. I would NOT recommend this brand unless you have the whole thing SERIOUSLY set up by an experienced luthier, and, even then, it may not be a very good investment.
