D20/SMP Custom: Sitka/Maple Dreadnought Guitar

Breedlove-custom-d20-maple-guitar4Dreadnought Body Shape: The Breedlove Dreadnought is slightly more rounded than traditional dreadnoughts, producing beautifully full, punchy, and articulate tones. The Dreadnought appeals to players inspired by the familiarity of a dreadnought, who are looking for nuance and richness from their instrument. The Breedlove Dreadnought projects well, so it excels in an ensemble, and yet retains the refinement needed for vocal accompaniment.

Western Bigleaf Maple Back and Sides: Maple is great for standing out among other instruments. With a powerful fundamental and even harmonics, it is clear and present, but without pronounced peaks and valleys in the harmonic content. It’s a great top wood for strumming and is often used on big-bodied guitars. Learn more about maple.

Sitka Spruce Top: Sitka spruce grows in the Northwest United States and Canada, and has been the primary top wood for U.S.A.-made instruments for many decades. It is strong, light, and gives an extended harmonic content and nearly equals the power of Adirondack. Learn more about Sitka spruce.
