I just picked up a Blueridge BR180 used. The extensive mother of pearl attracted me but when I picked it up and played it, I was blown away. Solid rosewood back and sides and spruce top--terrific action but the sound is better than any acoustic I have heard recently.
I had my luthier put in a LR Baggs Anthem. He said the extra resonance on this guitar will be at around 250 in the lower mids and he was right. I can dial it out but in the rig I want to use it, I think I will use a ten slide EQ and notch it.
Is anyone else playing a Blueridge--how can they do this for the price? The sound, wood, and workmanship are simply superb.
