Blueridge BR-140 6-String Acoustic Guitar
The Blueridge BR-140 appeared on our recommended list for Acoustic Guitars Under $1000 in the first 2 editions from March 2020 until August 2021.
It appeared first on our recommend list for Acoustic Guitars in the $500 to $1000 price category from January 2018 for 3 editions until September 2020 when it was out-ranked by the Alvarez MFA66 and Guild OM-120.
Blueridge’s BR-140 is a Martin-styled dreadnought, at a more affordable price point. The BR-140 is arguably the closest you’re going to get to that pre-War Martin tone while still keeping your budget under $1000.
Because of this, it’s a great deal if you’re looking for a Bluegrass guitar especially. However, the BR-140 is also at home with singer-songwriter work and vintage finger-style arrangements as well.
The best thing about this guitar is that it’s actually made from all-solid woods. The tone you get from this instrument is going to be significantly better than the tone you’ll get from a laminated instrument, making the extra investment worth it if you’re serious about getting good acoustic tone.
