Body Shape

Breedlove set out to enhance the traditional dreadnought sound, and the results are evident. If you’re inspired by the familiarity of a dread, but are looking for more nuance and richness than usual, the Breedlove Dreadnought delivers. The shape is slightly more rounded than traditional dreadnoughts and produces beautifully full, punchy, and articulate tones. It also provides excellent projection and articulation, so it excels in any ensemble. The hand-graduated top provides the balance and clarity that make this one of the most innovative and expressive-sounding dreadnoughts on the market.

Top Wood

Adirondack (red) spruce, picea rubens, originates in eastern North America. It has been the choice of bluegrass pickers for decades, and adds power to any guitar design. It is relatively heavy, with a high velocity of sound, and has the highest stiffness of all top woods across and along the grain. Adirondack spruce has higher resonance and more complex overtones than Sitka, and provides strong volume and pronounced individual note clarity with vintage sound. Responsive whether played softly or loudly, Adirondack is well suited for fingerstyle, flatpicking, or rhythm playing. The coloration can vary from creamy white to light yellow with pronounced red grain lines.

Breedlove Pinless Bridge

The Breedlove Pinless Bridge helps maintain the integrity of the top by eliminating the need for six drilled string holes. The fewer holes in your soundboard, the more evenly the sound wave can move across the interior, without any loss of energy. The Breedlove Pinless Bridge also provides a gentler string-break angle from the bridge to the top of the saddle, reducing saddle strain. This innovative bridge also makes string changes a breeze, especially on 12 strings. Plus, you’ll never again have to worry about lost, worn-out, or broken bridge pins.

Breedlove Neck

Breedlove guitars feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish also contributes to ideal playability. The labor-intensive finish process includes precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.

Love this guitar! Played a ton of guitars at my local shop. Finally, then came the Pursuit Dreadnought Ebony. "Wow that feels fantastic. Put that one on the short list." "Let me try that $3000 Martin on the wall there." "That's nice I guess, but it's not 3000 bucks nice." "I'm sold on the Breedlove." Plays better than anything I tried. Sounds great. And I can plug it right into my pc with a micro-usb cable. Fantastic. So in love!
