Blueridge Guitars have been gaining popularity over the last five years, and this BR-160 proves exactly why. Built with all solid woods and featuring an excellent set up with a bit of cosmetic flair, the BR-160 is among our favorite guitars under $ 1,500, especially for bluegrass flatpickers. The Sitka spruce top is complimented by solid Santos rosewood on the back and sides, lending the guitar incredibly clear overtones, rock-solid low end, and terrific volume perfect for overpowering your banjo player. The leopard-print pickguard has become Blueridge's signature cosmetic appointment, but the beautiful headstock inlay in both mother-of-pearl and abalone is attention-grabbing as well. Included in the price is a Blueridge deluxe NuHyde gig bag, striking a compromise between protection and portability.
