The "Golden Era" of acoustic instrument building is alive and well with the folks at Blueridge. The BR40AS features a solid Adirondack Spruce Top, Mahogany Back and Sides, with Indian Rosewood fretboard and bridge. Very nice MOP inlays adorn the headstock with great attention to detail and like the finest guitars of the Golden Era, the BR40AS has the traditional dovetail neck/body joint. The Kluson-style tuning machines with "butterbean" buttons, in nickel, have the perfect vintage look yet offer modern precision and feel. Last, but certainly not least, the BR40AS features hand-carved parabolic braces in the authentic Pre-war forward X-pattern, giving you the tone and volume typically found in guitars that are twice the price, if not more.
No case included.
