This is probably the Music Store's favorite line of guitars, along with many of our teachers. These are meticulously hand crafted in China by some of the best builders available. The line draws heavily from vintage Martin and Gibson styles but have a unique look and sound. Blueridge has solid top, all solid, Adirondack top and parlour models. You really have to play one to see what a great value Blueridge offers in an incredible sounding instrument.

Martin is the company most responsible for the acoustic guitar of today. A huge range of models, from student step up models to industry standards like the HD28 to handcrafted custom models, ensure Martin's status as king of guitar makers. They invented many of the features that are standard among manufacturers today, including X-bracing and the "dreadnaught" model. Martin does not rest on its laurels, however. They are constantly pushing the envelope in product development, and the instruments they send us are consistently the best we get. We carry more Martins in stock than any other brand, so ask us about them!
