Celebrate the 1930s guitar vibe with the Blueridge BR-163 000 acoustic.

The Blueridge BR-163 Historic Series 000 acoustic guitar offers a vintage-inspired instrument with premium tonewoods and appointments for modern musicians. Constructed with a solid Sitka spruce top and solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, this guitar produces a balanced tone with shimmering highs, warm lows and impressive projection. The slim mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard provide a fast, comfortable playing experience reminiscent of guitars from the 1930s. Distinctive herringbone binding, a tortoiseshell pickguard and abalone snowflake inlays complete the retro look.

Resonant Tonewoods Shape Signature Sound

The BR-163's solid Sitka spruce top and scalloped X-bracing give you crisp articulation and chimey treble. The rosewood back and sides add depth, warmth and sustain. Together, these premium tonewoods produce a balanced acoustic voice with shimmering highs, rich lows and resonant bass. The guitar's medium-small body provides focused tone and comfortable playability. When playing, you'll appreciate this guitar's impressive dynamic range and projection.

Fast, Comfortable Neck Built to Last

The BR-163's slim mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard feel natural and familiar under your fingers. The neck's oval profile and medium action facilitate fast, accurate fingering across the fingerboard. The neck joint's dovetail construction creates an inherently stable platform for the rosewood fingerboard. These high-quality components give the BR-163 excellent playability and long-lasting durability. Overall, this neck design supports versatile and expressive playing.

Vintage-Style Appointments Honor the Past

With distinctive herringbone binding, a tortoiseshell pickguard and abalone snowflake inlays, the BR-163 pays homage to guitars from the prewar era. These traditional appointments are beautifully crafted and evoke nostalgia for vintage instruments of the past. At the same time, modern components like nickel-plated tuners provide contemporary functionality. The BR-163's blend of retro aesthetics and modern playability results in an acoustic guitar ideal for today's fingerstyle player.
