In November of 2016 Acousitc Guitar Magazine reviewed the "Top Gear of 2016." Writer Greg Cahill had the following to say of the Breedlove Journey Concert handmade acoustic guitars.
From the December 2016 issue of Acoustic Guitar | BY GREG CAHILL
Playing the Breedlove Journey Concert, you’re reminded of the depth of sound that a set of Dalbergia nigra—or Brazilian rosewood—back and sides lends to a steel-string acoustic guitar (the guitar features a solid Sitka top). The bass notes have an unmistakable oomph, as if the guitar is outfitted with a subwoofer, and overall, the guitar has a lush, ringing sound that makes putting it down a challenging proposition. Brazilian rosewood guitars of any constructional style are getting harder and more expensive to come by. Thanks to the Journey Concert’s onboard electronics—LR Baggs Anthem TRU-MIC, combining a miniature microphone with a piezo pickup—the guitar sounds warm and detailed. The guitar is highly recommended for anyone wanting to get in the door with a guitar made from this precious tonewood—while it’s still available on a new instrument. PRICE: $5,332 list/$3,999 street.
