Overview

Blueridge guiotars at Young America Music in Macon, GABlueridge Guitars have a history of surprising people who play them. Those who think the Chinese import guitars aren't worth much have never played a Blueridge! There are many comparisons with these guitars and USA produced instruments that cost twice as much.

 

 

YAMS is now a Blueridge dealer - and we have several in stock. They cost more than the student-line guitars, but are well worth the investment because they are easier to play, stay in tune longer, and are just more fun to play!

 

 

Here are some quotes from around the Web:

From AcousticGuitar.com:
"..... mature tone and great playability....."
"The name Blueridge has long been associated with affordable instruments. Most recently, the brand received critical acclaim for its Chinese-made vintage Martin copies........."

"Tonally, the Blueridge was very impressive as well. Even though Simmons found the neck to be a bit too shallow, we all agreed that the guitar played great. True to the guitars it emulates, the BR-160 excelled when flatpicked. It displayed a great dynamic range, retained its rich tone when played hard, and displayed good balance throughout its range."

From MusicGearReview.com:
" Great sound for the price. Having played a few Martin and Taylor guitars in shops I can say that the Blueridge BR-60 is priced low for the quality of sound you receive."

From Harmony Central:
"Sound : 9/10 --- Here's where this guitar shines."
