Breedlove 25th Anniversary

Dec 03, 2014 | News & Events

In the late 80’s, Breedlove Guitars was just the glimmer of an idea.  Larry Breedlove and Steve Henderson had a dream to build instruments unlike any others and started Breedlove in Tumalo in 1990.  They set out to craft lightweight, responsive, and impeccably crafted guitars featuring innovative designs, unique materials, and distinctive aesthetics.  Joined by Kim Breedlove in 1994, they began adding intricate inlays.  In early prototyping they created the Breedlove sound that still serves as our benchmark today.
