Custom Myrtlewood CM


Le Musicien, Breedlove’s distribution partner in France, commissioned this one-of-a-kind Private Reserve guitar. This extraordinary musical instrument was made with Sitka spruce, figured myrtlewood, Oregon walnut, African ebony, Honduran mahogany, Baltic birch and Spanish cedar. All parts were aged together before assembly of the guitar. The myrtlewood was carefully inspected and two back-to-back pieces were splayed out like an open book to reveal a mirror image of the wood grain, color and figure. Each piece of wood was matched to this set for quality, tone, beauty, contrast and scent. C’est bon!
