When I purchased this guitar I was in the market for my first nice guitar with a big, deep sound, that would resonate wherever I was. Naturally I looked at big name brand guitars' jumbo body sizes, and was unfortunately not impressed. Short of the $3,000 Gibson j200 nothing came close to the sound I was looking for. I was beginning to lose hope when the store attendant who was helping me stepped in and suggested this guitar, conceding that it was a little different than what I had in mind. He brought out this guitar and within four bars I was in love. The sound seemed to jump right out of the guitar and occupy the whole room with a warm bright tone, without excessive coaxing on the players part. This model also transitions beautifully from pure strumming to complex fingerstyling with ease and grace. The neck was incredibly comfortable and cooperative, and the model had and still has incredible vibrancy. After purchasing this guitar I have fallen completely in love with the care and expertise Breedlove puts into the construction of their instruments. Furthermore, whenever I present this model to or talk about it with a seasoned guitar connoisseur, I get the same response; "You picked a beautiful instrument!" I am beyond happy to consider myself a part of the Breedlove family.
