Blueridge Historic Craftsman Series Guitars

The Blueridge guitars of the Historic Craftsman Series possess a tone unequaled by any other brand and the reason is the use of a legendary tonewood - Adirondack spruce.  All details and structural appointments closely follow the finest prewar examples, while the slim, easy-playing necks are a decided improvement that will please the modern player.

Each Historic Craftsman guitar is adorned with a solid Mahogany neck with a super-strong, traditional dovetail neck-body joint selected for its stability as well as beauty.  A small, maple bridgeplate reinforces the underside of the top and the spruce top bracing is scalloped to provide the perfect balance of strength and light weight enought to ensure the best tone and volume.  Any guitarist can experience the quality and style of a costly vintage collectible for a very moderate price in these Blueridge Historic Craftsman guitars!
