The classic vintage style and modern improvements in playability and construction of the Blueridge guitars that make up the Historic Series have all the traditional features usually found on pricey vintage guitars, but at an amazingly affordable price! Taking cues from guitars produced in the years after WWII to present, the Historic Series combines more readily available tone woods from Canada for an already broken-in, vintage flavored tone. The slim, fast-playing necks and easy action makes these guitars truly professional-quality instruments—although they are priced within the reach of students and amateurs! Elegant pearl and abalone inlay on peghead, fingerboard and all borders characterizes our top models as well as the finest solid East Indian rosewood and solid Sitka Spruce. All tops are carefully braced with the same forward-X bracing found on costly Prewar Originals and the tone of our new guitars greatly resembles those old masterpieces. Our mid-line features traditional herringbone binding on top and back strip and delicate, tasteful pearl inlay on fingerboard and peghead. The mahogany series is noted for its power and clarity, making these guitars equally suited for lead and rhythm playing. Every Historic Series guitar features a slim mahogany neck with an adjustable truss rod to maintain perfect alignment.
