A portable acoustic-electric with resonant tone and easy playability.

The Blueridge BR-163CE acoustic-electric guitar gives you vintage beauty and tone. With a solid Sitka spruce top and solid Indian rosewood back and sides, this 000 body style guitar produces articulate highs, warm lows and impressive projection. The mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard feel smooth and fast under your fingers. Distinctive herringbone trim and a tortoiseshell pickguard evoke 1930s elegance. An LR Baggs E.A.S pickup system lets you plug in for live performance. For musicians seeking premium traditional materials and modern playability, the BR-163CE is an ideal choice.

Premium Tonewoods Shape Signature Sound

The BR-163CE's solid Sitka spruce top resonates freely to generate crisp treble and midrange. Solid Indian rosewood back and sides add depth, warmth and sustain. Together, these premium tonewoods produce the balanced, harmonically complex voice Blueridge is known for. Scalloped X-bracing enhances projection and articulation. The smaller 000 body provides focused tone and comfortable playability.

Fast, Comfortable Neck Inspires Smooth Playing

The mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard feel familiar and welcoming under your fingers. An easy-playing slim profile lets you glide smoothly up and down the neck. The fingerboard's rounded edges and medium gauge frets reduce string-bending strain. A 1.6875" nut width at the headstock suits most playing styles. Overall, the neck design ensures seamless transitions and encourages extended practice sessions.

Vintage-Style Appointments Capture 1930s Allure

One look at the BR-163CE's herringbone trim, tortoiseshell pickguard and snowflake position markers will transport you to the golden age of acoustic guitars. These vintage-style appointments evoke the alluring designs of 1930s instruments. A hand-rubbed gloss finish protects the tonewoods while highlighting their natural beauty. For discerning musicians who appreciate history and tradition, the visuals are as inspiring as the sound.

Plug in for Performance With the L.R. Baggs E.A.S Pickup System

The BR-163CE comes equipped with an L.R. Baggs E.A.S pickup system for playing live on stage. This flexible system senses the guitar's acoustic vibrations to capture its natural tone when plugged into an amplifier or PA system. Volume, treble and midrange controls provide tone shaping to suit different venues and playing styles. Whether at an open mic, recording session or full band performance, the E.A.S system gives you confidence to share the BR-163CE's voice with audiences.
