Breedlove 25th Anniversary

Breedlove 25th Anniversary

Dec 03, 2014 | News & Events

In the late 80’s, Breedlove Guitars was just a glimmer of an idea.  Larry Breedlove and Steve Henderson had a dream to build instruments unlike any others and started Breedlove in Bend, OR, 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 and soon introduced the Breedlove mandolin to the marketplace.  In early prototyping they created the Breedlove sound that still serves as our benchmark today. Breedlove is celebrating 25 years of quality instrument manufacturing, by paying homage to the foundations that Breedlove was built on.  Four limited edition models will be introduced in 2015 that continue the traditions Breedlove began with.  The Kim Breedlove Signature Concert 25th is built with a sunken redwood cedar top and figured walnut back and sides – the same as the first original Breedlove. It is equipped with the...

2015 Product Sneak Peek: Updated Studio Series

2015 Product Sneak Peek: Updated Studio Series

Nov 11, 2014 | News & Events

Designed for recorded acoustic guitar performances, the Studio series captures all the sparkling detail and nuance of your performance.  The figured maple back and sides offer a clear, precise tone that rises above the mix. The Studio series is available in a concert, dreadnought and 12 string option.  All have a new updated burst and the concert and 12 string are equipped with the Breedlove Bridge Truss.  The BBT is mounted to the bridge from the inside and is connected into the tail block of the guitar, pulling downward on the underside of the bridge to distribute some of the tension, relieving pressure on the top. The resulting tonal effect on BBT-equipped guitars is more resonance and livelier sound with enhanced overtones. The most exciting update for 2015 is the new pickup system.  The Studio series is now equipped with the Fishman INK3 USB system.  This onboard preamp features a Sonicore pickup, 3-band EQ, chromatic tuner and a low battery LED.  It also has a USB that allows for quick access and...
