The Concertina Body Shape
Breedlove’s small body guitar, delivering a surprisingly clear, crisp, loud sound. It’s 12-frets to the body design make it a joy to play. Extensive Sound Optimization® engineering has resulted in a body shape that has a bigger sound and is more comfortable to play than a traditional parlour.
Sound Optimization & Hand Voicing
Why do Breedlove guitars sound so good? It’s simple, Breedlove guitars are made with care, with the goal of allowing you to play better, sound better and play more. But it’s also complex, with art, inspiration, craft and science merging together in a process called Sound Optimization. These models are hand voiced, with experienced luthiers meticulously tapping, listening and shaving away tiny curls of exquisite tonewood as they target specific, measurable frequencies that will make each unique, individual instrument sound its very best. The tone wood species are carefully milled, weighed and considered, with backs and tops specifically tuned to each other to create light, responsive guitars with superior tone and sustain.
Adirondack Spruce Top
In a word—power. Red spruce breaks in with play, becoming ever richer, but from the start it offers the most energy of any guitar top, with a famously explosive dynamic range and a clear, balanced voice.
Cocobolo Back & Sides
Truly stunning in its beauty, often blending shades of brown, orange and yellow within its haunting grain, cocobolo—from the same family as Brazilian rosewood—must be milled and sanded carefully. Using Sound Optimization, Breedlove treats each piece uniquely to create assertive guitars that are fast, loud and responsive.
The Breedlove Neck
Breedlove guitar necks feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. Unlike traditional dovetail neck joints that require major surgery for a neck re-set, it is easy to adjust the play action and neck angle with the Breedlove bolt-on neck and single-action truss rod. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish contributes to ideal playability – the finish process alone takes three days, including precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.
