Vintage 1930s charm meets modern playability in this handcrafted prewar-style acoustic guitar.

The Blueridge BR-260 gives you a taste of golden-era guitar tone and aesthetics without the vintage price tag. Handcrafted with premium tonewoods like solid Adirondack spruce and Indian rosewood, this dreadnought acoustic produces a bold, balanced sound with shimmering highs and a focused low end. The scalloped X-bracing opens up the responsive spruce top, projecting your playing to the back of the room. You'll appreciate the fast, slim mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard, which provide a comfortable playing experience. Visually, the herringbone marquetry rosette, tortoiseshell pickguard and snowflake position markers recall the elegance of prewar guitars. For discerning players seeking an affordable, professional-grade acoustic with vintage-inspired looks and sound, the Blueridge BR-260 delivers.

Premium, resonant tonewoods create a dynamic acoustic voice

The BR-260's solid Adirondack spruce top and Indian rosewood back and sides were hand-selected for their tonal qualities. Adirondack spruce, prized for its strength and responsiveness, gives this dreadnought a balanced tone with shimmering highs and focused lows. The rosewood body enhances bass response and projection. Together, these premium tonewoods produce a dynamic range suited to any playing style.

Scalloped X-bracing opens up the responsive soundboard

The BR-260's spruce top is braced in the scalloped X pattern preferred by prewar guitar makers. Scalloped bracing carves away wood from the braces to allow the top to vibrate more freely, resulting in a more open, resonant sound with rich overtones. You'll hear the difference in the guitar's clear, ringing tone and sustain. The scalloped X-bracing gives this Blueridge acoustic a voice inspired by the golden era of guitar craftsmanship.

Fast, comfortable neck invites intricate playing

The mahogany neck has a slim profile that feels fast and familiar in your hands. The ebony fingerboard is smooth and durable, ideal for complex chords and melodies. Together with the 1 3/4" nut width, the neck design makes intricate playing feel effortless. Whether you prefer delicate travis picking or full, ringing strums, the BR-260's neck gives you the control and comfort to make the guitar an extension of your musical imagination.

Vintage-inspired aesthetics recall guitar's golden age

With its herringbone rosette, tortoiseshell pickguard and snowflake position markers, the BR-260 has the vintage-inspired looks to match its tone. These ornate yet understated appointments were hallmarks of prewar acoustic guitars from makers like Martin and Gibson. Paired with the guitar's polished gloss finish, they give the BR-260 a sense of craft and history that inspires you to play and create. For players seeking a professional acoustic with the style and soul of a vintage instrument, the BR-260 delivers.
