Recreate vintage acoustic tone and playability with the Blueridge BR-243.

The Blueridge BR-243 Prewar Series 000 acoustic guitar gives you premium prewar style and tone for less. Made with select solid Adirondack spruce and solid mahogany, this guitar produces warm, rich tone with superior note clarity and volume. The mahogany neck offers fast, easy action, while the ebony fingerboard and bridge provide striking looks and durability. With its elegant pearl and abalone inlays and expertly applied tortoise binding, the BR-243 is a work of fine art that sounds as good as it looks. For an heirloom-quality guitar at an affordable price, the Blueridge BR-243 can't be beat.

Premium Tonewoods Generate Prewar Warmth

The solid Adirondack spruce top features scalloped X-bracing that provides resonant, balanced tone with clear articulation. Solid mahogany back and sides give a warm, woody tone that opens up as the wood ages. Together, these premium tonewoods recall the richness and depth of vintage guitars from the 1930s and '40s at a fraction of the cost.

Fast, Easy Playability from a Slim Mahogany Neck

The mahogany neck has an easy-playing slim profile that lets your fingers fly across the ebony fingerboard. The neck's inherent stability means you'll enjoy low action and straight frets for the lifetime of the guitar. The 1.75" nut width strikes a perfect balance for fingerpicking or strumming full chords.

Striking Details Meet Superior Craftsmanship

With its high-gloss natural finish, tortoise body binding and pearl and abalone floral inlays, the BR-243 looks as good as any prewar acoustic. Blueridge's expert craftsmen apply these cosmetic touches with care to create an instrument you'll be proud to play in any setting. Nickel tuners keep the guitar perfectly intonated and ready to accompany your next performance or recording session.

Find Your Voice with a 000-Size Body

The 000 body size provides comfortable playability for any musician. Its smaller size reduces the "boominess" often associated with larger-bodied acoustics, letting the natural tonewood resonance shine through. Whether fingerpicking intricate passages or strumming full chords, the BR-243's 000 body lets your unique musical voice be heard.
