Masterfully handcrafted from rare tonewoods, this dreadnought acoustic guitar achieves phenomenal resonance, projection and playability.

The Blueridge BR-280 dreadnought acoustic guitar offers superior tone and premium craftsmanship for the discerning musician. Its solid Adirondack spruce top provides pristine note clarity and robust volume. The solid rosewood back and sides deliver a focused treble and strong bass. Its slim mahogany neck offers comfortable action, while the bone nut and saddle maximize tone transmission. Gold tuners keep you precisely in tune through every performance.

Pristine Tonewoods Create Legendary Tone

The secret to the BR-280's tone lies in its premium tonewoods, chosen for their musical resonance. The close-grained Adirondack spruce top, paired with scalloped X-bracing, produces the legendary volume and projection dreadnoughts are known for. Rosewood back and sides add warmth, richness and clarity. Together, these tonewoods create an instrument with exceptional tone that will only improve over time.

Premium Appointments for Visual Beauty

Not only does the BR-280 sound exquisite, it looks stunning. Abalone pearl borders the top, back and fingerboard, with delicate snowflake inlays adorning the rosewood fingerboard. An elegant three-ring rosette encircles the soundhole. A high-gloss finish enhances the natural beauty of the tonewoods. These premium appointments highlight the level of craft that went into this guitar.

Built to be Played

While the BR-280 is a visual work of art, it's meant to be played. Its slim mahogany neck and 1.75" nut width make it comfortable for any playing style. The bone nut and saddle and gold tuners ensure flawless intonation and tuning stability. Whether strumming chords or fingerpicking complex melodies, the BR-280 handles with ease. Its resonant, balanced tone invites you to play for hours.
