Blueridge guitars have become a household name because of a great materials-to-tone-to-price ratio. There are few, if any solid wood guitar options out there that can compete with Blueridge at the $400-$700 price point. This 143-2 "second generation" OM features a 1 3/4" nut width, a hard to find option on Blueridge instruments. It's in as-new condition and would make a great first guitar for a serious beginner or a nice upgrade for the intermediate player on a budget. This 143-2 model Blueridge is quite light and exhibits surprising responsiveness for an inexpensive instrument.
