Masterful design and rare tonewoods create the pinnacle of heirloom 000 acoustics.

The Blueridge BR-283 Prewar Series 000 acoustic guitar combines vintage appeal with modern playability for a superb instrument. Its solid Adirondack spruce top provides shimmering highs and focused bass for a balanced tone that suits any style. The solid Indian rosewood back and sides offer warmth and projection, while the mahogany neck provides a comfortable, fast-playing experience. With premium features inspired by 1930s originals, the BR-283 delivers a timeless sound in an compact, alluring package.

Vintage Materials Produce Classic Tone

Adirondack spruce and Indian rosewood were preferred for acoustic guitars in the 1930s thanks to their resonant, balanced tone. The BR-283 continues this tradition with a solid Adirondack top and solid rosewood back and sides hand-selected for musicality and beauty. These woods vibrate freely to produce notes with shimmering highs, focused mids and tight lows for a sound suited to any genre. Scalloped bracing, also inspired by 1930s designs, optimizes the top's responsiveness so your tone rings loud and true.

Vintage Soul, Modern Playability

While the BR-283 is crafted according to prewar designs, it offers contemporary playability thanks to its 1 3/4" nut width and low action. The neck profile provides a comfortable feel whether you prefer delicate fingerpicking or assertive strumming. The balanced, articulate voice of the BR-283 suits a variety of musical styles from folk and Americana to jazz and light rock. Experience the vintage vibe and premium tone of a guitar steeped in tradition.

Premium Appointments Complete the Vintage Aesthetic

With gold tuners, an abalone rosette and inlaid purfling, the BR-283 looks as stunning as it sounds. Its high-gloss finish highlights the depth and figuring of the tonewoods while protecting them from the elements. Other premium touches include a bone nut and saddle for resonant tone transfer and open-gear tuners for smooth, accurate tuning. A deluxe gig bag is included to safely transport your BR-283 to band practice, recording sessions or wherever inspiration strikes.
