Blueridge BR-160 Reviews

Review: Blueridge BR-160
Rating you give the BR-160: 4 - Highly recommend it

Likes: Sound and the quick action.

Dislikes: It was damaged through storage. I've played it so much it is almost time to be refurbished or a new one.

Additional Comments: I have owned J-45 Gibson, D-28 Martin and many more, this guitar seems like I can play any style with anyone.  If you want a great versatile string use D'Addario 80/20 Bronze medium string.  I would put this guitar beside anyone's guitar, no matter type they are playing.

Likes: Tone and sustain are pretty amazing. Deep bass. For the price, a really great guitar. Like the abalone.

Dislikes: Needed to have setup redone locally.

Additional Comments: Bought sight unseen from Onlineguitar, after playing a few Blueridge guitars and listening to YouTube videos. I did not know of Maury's at the time. They said they did setup, but the guitar came to me in factory packaging. I called, they said manufacturer did setup.  It needed setup to lower strings.  Plays great, tone is amazing.  Now I want to check out all the Blueridge guitars, but don't have a local dealer (Olympia, WA).

Like about the Blueridge BR160:  Once I had the action lowered and Ebony bridge pins installed, this guitar plays as well as any other guitar on the market.  I have owned my 160 for 2 years, and the sound and sustain have only improved.  As long as you keep high quality strings on, it will serve you well.  I like the gloss and bling.

Dislike about the Blueridge BR-160:  Very few, I am not a fan of the age toner or the dalmation pick guard. 

Additional Comments:  This guitar will stand up to Martin, Collings and the it the same, no!, but dollar for dollar this guitar is a fantastic value and I can not recommend it enough.

Like about the Blueridge BR-160:  I'm very impressed with this guitar's tone and playability.  Maury set this one up for me with custom lights and he tweaked the action at the nut.  This this is loud, rich, and it looks great too!

Dislike about the Blueridge BR-160:  The only thing I wish they'd change is the headstock.  Its not a big deal but I wish they'd offer it with no pearl.

Additional Comments:  I was hesitant to buy a BR sight-unseen. was my first choice, as their price was the same but they offered to ship this to me faster from their other warehouse in CA (I'm on the West Coast).  They promised me a setup if it shipped from their KY location, but no setup if shipped from CA.  I thought that sounded odd, and did some research and found out that does not have a CA warehouse!  They drop-ship from the manufacturer in CA and tell customers its their warehouse!    Your site was my 2nd choice but it should have been my first!  I really appreciate your reputable service, your pro setup, but most of all your honesty.  I'm sorry I didn't come to you first, but I can tell you that I will tell everyone I know all about your great site!  Thanks!
