The Oregonian Company Profile: Breedlove Gutiars


This was a fun find: An Italian music journalist conducting an interview about the Oregon series of guitars from Bend, Ore.'s Breedlove Guitars. The guitars were on display last week at Musikmesse 2014, the international instrument show in Frankfurt.

Breedlove makes a variety of stringed instruments and has a stable full of "Breedlove artists," including Kathy Valentine, David Knopfler, Shane & Shane and many others.

In the video, Jonathan explains Breedlove's use of sitka spruce for the top and myrtlewood for the sides and back.
