Likes: I bought this guitar in February of 2010, never thought I would ever purchase a guitar that I could not put my hands on first.  After talking with Maury in detail about the BR-73, he convinced me that I should really consider giving this guitar a try.  Boy-- was he ever more right on with his evaluation of this instrument.  I have never been more pleased with any guitar I have purchased in my life, as I own Martins, Taylors,Gibsons, and Fenders.  This guitar, for the money, is as good as it gets for me.  I love the slim neck, playability, the great sound,and simply a beautiful - well made guitar.  Sure I have paid lots more in my 50 years of playing for guitars, but none of the acoustics have I enjoyed as much as this guitar. My fellow band members and picking buddies have been highly complimentary of this guitar's sound and quality for the price.  Maury has given me the best deal and I have found him to be honest & sincere with me from day one.  Take it from me, you really need to consider giving the BR-73 or any Blueridge a try before spending lots more on another brand, you will be impressed with this guitar.

Dislikes: NONE

Additional Comments: I use Martin Bronze Xtra Lites

Review:  Blueridge Br-73 guitar
Rating you give the Blueridge BR73:  4 - Highly recommend it

Like about the BR-73:  Very nice full sound for such a small and comfortable body.  This guitar has alot of sparkle in the notes and has plenty of wonderful overtones that give it a great beautiful tone.  Great for soft strumming, rythm, and especially fingerstyle because of its great response.  This is a great recording guitar because of the clear tone and good
balance.  Great thin neck/nut width for bluegrass or smaller hands.  

Dislike about the BR73:  The guitar has a wonderful fingerstyle sound, but the strings are so close that it can make the right hand picking slightly awkward.  I prefer a slightly wider string spacing/nut width for fingerstyle. 

Additional Comments:  I've owned this guitar for a few years and it's sound has just improved.  You can't find a match for the sound quality in the price-range.  I brought this guitar into the GuitarCenter after I purchased it and played it against $3000 auditorium sized guitars with very pleasing results.  This Blueridge totally took the cake in playability, brilliant sparkling highs, and balance and clearness of sound.  There is a depth or tonal maturity that some of the more expensive
guitars brought to the table though.  They had more of a more mature, woody depth in tone because of the better solid Rosewood sides and back.  The bass notes were fuller, but that can sometimes make recording harder/muddier (it depends on the recording methods).  This blueridge records fantasticly strait through a well positioned mic.  I would recommend that everyone try and compare any guitar they are thinking about purchasing side-by-side with the Blueridge equivalent before making their choice.  Their necks are also incredibly comfortable and thin.
