Mixdown Magazine Reviews Oregon Concert Burst Guitar
Mixdown Magazine is an Australian based magazine that covers all forms of music. They recently reviewed the Breedlove Oregon Concert Burst guitar. Check out the review by Nick Brown. Read the full review here. It must be hard to stand out in a market full of similar-ish designs, woods and looks. Of course, if you stray too far left or right, you risk completely alienating the guitar buying public. This model came with the same interesting wood selections as the dreadnaught, and for the most part ticked the same aesthetic boxes, though with a shape that’s arguably more familiar to the Australian guitar buying public. So I was keen to check out another acoustic with a slight twist from the Breed- love camp in the form of the Oregon Concert Burst. WHISKEY BUSINESS Similar to its Dreadnaught shaped cousin, the Concert features Sitka Spruce, Hard Rock Maple, Ebony and Myrtlewood. This model has gone a slightly different route however, with stain nish back and sides. While the guitar is available in natural and burst...

Acoustic Guitar Reviews Breedlove Solo Acoustic Bass
Acoustic Guitar Magazine recently reviews our Solo Bass. By Brian Fox Chances are good that your bass-playing buddies can tell a joke or two about the dreaded “bass solo”—that moment during a gig that typically triggers a massive rush on the bar and turns the vibe to a bewildering blend of sympathetic and apoplectic. After all, most would agree that bass is best when played in consort with other instruments. But as physics dictates, low frequencies pose unique challenges in terms of amplification and monitoring, especially in group settings. With electric bass, those hurdles are typically overcome by bumping the gain on a sufficiently powerful amplifier. When it comes to acoustic basses—often played with the explicit goal of ditching that amp—not hearing yourself over the din of even a mellow jam session can be a major drag. With its Solo Series, Breedlove Guitars brings back much of the joy in jamming, allowing players to monitor themselves through a secondary, waist-side sound hole. Additional...
Pursuit Drednought Ebony Reviewed in American Songwriter Gear Guide
Written by American Songwriter November 19th, 2014 Breedlove’s Pursuit series includes some wonderful guitars, such as the Dreadnought Ebony Acoustic-Electric. With a gorgeous java ebony laminate back and sides, an Adirondack spruce top, and a rosewood fretboard on a neck made of not-often-used nato, the guitar sounds and plays great. A bone nut and bone saddle contribute to the guitar’s balanced tone and even, uniformly-deteriorating sustain. Black binding, black and cream purfling and an abalone rosette set off the wood combination, and the pinless bridge is a nice touch in terms of both aesthetics and logic. The Pursuit Dreadnought Ebony, designed in Oregon and crafted in China, is a high-quality, affordable alternative to more expensive guitars. With an onboard tuner, the guitar uses the Fishman ISYS system for its electronics, and has one of the coolest and most modern features out there today, a built-in USB port to interface with recording software, which is especially useful for quickly saving ideas. It’s hard to...
