- Loud, very responsive and with a bright sound!
- Great for Bluegrass/Country Blues: Flatpicking and/or Fingerpicking.
- Supports micro tuning and produces harmonics with a light touch of fingers.
- The sound is incredible!

Sound Rating: 10


- Factory setup... But it's ok, because I like to setup by myself.
- The action is a little high on nut, but is perfect for my playing style.
- Best with .11 strings!
- I guess they have a very good quality control because the neck came perfectly adjusted...

Setup Rating: 9


- Very nice looking guitar...
- I did not notice any finishing defect. I prefer black pickguard, but I'm liking the "dalmatian" style.
- The logo on headstock is so delicate and exquisite. The snowflake/diamond inlays are equally beautiful!

Appearance Rating: 10


- It's my first Blueridge guitar, so not sure. Well built, it is!

- I like the tuners. They adjust nicely, hold tune and looks beautiful!
- They would upgrade to bone bridge pins...

Overall Comments

I really love it! I had some resistance in owning a Blueridge (more because of certain myths related to some boutique brands), but this guitar has exceeded my expectations! Only picking up in the hands and playing to understand. I intend to buy another.
