"I am in love with the tone and timbre of the Breedlove Guitar and the foundation it provides for a vocal to lay on top. It is a workhorse on stage and blends beautifully with other fretted instruments with electronics you can depend on. The icing on the cake is how it sounds recorded, clear and strong but warm. It is a "go to" instrument whether recording our own material or doing sessions for others." - Lucinda
