I'm surprised there is not a thread discussing the new Blueridge 12 Fret guitars. Saga describes them as having a deeper, richer tone. Well, that surely "sounds" good. I played a 12 Fret BR 62 last week, can't find any others to play. It was quite loud, like most Blueridge guitars, and I would not describe it as richer and deeper tone, but maybe it is, compared to a BR 60. It wasn't a thrill, but also, I had just played the Eastman mentioned below.
Does anyone own one of the all solid wood BR 12 fretters, or know of a good review of them? I am in the market, and about ready to pull the trigger on an Eastman E20-OM, Adirondack with rosewood body. I played one last week, very sweet, balanced, beautiful, well built, great pricing, great base, mids and highs. I am bouncing around with the Eastman dreadnaught also, attracted to the huge projection and volume, but the OM was sweet, plenty of base, and I just think I would play it for longer periods of time due to the smaller, more comfortable size. I also have played Larrivee guitars lately, and the Eastman seemed sweeter, prettier, preferred for backing up my folk like singin.
