It was on a six month surfing trip deep in Mexico that young artist and musician Kim Breedlove decided his life calling: to build stringed instruments.
With a strong art background and refined design sense, Kim Breedlove acquired the tools, the training and a keen interest in building guitars, mandolins, banjos and other fine instruments in 1974. At a very young age he entered the elite level of producing legendary quality instruments and has dedicated his life to this masterful artistic endeavor.
Kim is now the namesake of the company, however, it was founded by his younger brother, Larry Breedlove and friend, Steve Henderson in 1990. Today Kim serves as master luthier and designer of the Breedlove Guitar Co.
