Rare combo of tonewoods and intricate detailing give this a vintage look with an exceptional tone.

Blueridge's BR-280A Pre-War Series Dreadnaught guitar combines the rare, select woods with fastidious craftsmanship to create a guitar that even the finest artist would be proud to play. The secret of the tone is in the close-grained Adirondack spruce top wood and the forward-x brace parabolic bracing that gave the originals their legendary tone and volume.

Fine solid rosewood is used for the back and sides, with a select, one-piece mahogany neck with carved volute. Beautiful abalone pearl is hand inlaid on every border for the utmost in visual beauty and elegance while pearl snowflake position markers help add on the ebony fingerboard and a Dalmatian, tortoise-style pickguard give it even more aesthetic flair. Case sold separately.
