The Breedlove American BJ25/SMe4 acoustic-electric bass features incredibly rich tone and superb playability. Designed to be played acoustically or plugged in and played out, this bass features a 32" scale length and the Breedlove bracing system with JLD bridge truss.
The jumbo bass body possesses a large body depth and broad shoulders, providing an ideal sound chamber for those bass notes to resonate and project with plenty of deep tone. The Sapele back and sides and Sitka spruce top complement this quality and offer rich, full clarity for each note.
The bolt-on mahogany neck aids in the Breedlove bass's sustain, along with the sturdy rosewood fingerboard and rosewood winged bridge. The 32" scale, soft V neck shape, and 16" radius add comfort for intricate movements up and down the acoustic bass's 20 frets.
At the heart of the Breedlove American BJ25/SMe4 is the L.R. Baggs Element Active VTC Pickups System, letting you amplify your bass guitar quickly and easily. The Element Active Volume and Tone control (VTC) pairs the Element under-saddle transducer with a pre-contoured all-discrete class-A endpin preamp, and includes a small, removable soundhole-mounted volume and tone control for added convenience and versatility. The entire system is designed to install easily and features plug-and-play performance.
This Breedlove Custom Shop bass uses the JLD Bridge Truss system. This device is a cantilevered truss that helps to counterbalance string tension at the bridge, creating a relaxed top and improved structural integrity. This allows the acoustic bass's top to be braced in a very progressive way, with a focus on realizing the full acoustic potential of the top. A relaxed top provides maximal wavelength response and a synergy is created by use of a graduated top thickness, balanced scalloped bracing, and a pinless bridge in combination with the bridge truss system. This gives the Breedlove American bass guitar the distinctive and highly dynamic "Breedlove Sound", with a piano-like bass and a remarkably well-balanced tone suitable for a broad variety of musical styles.
Dressed in a shiny gloss top and featuring Gotoh tuners and chrome hardware, the Breedlove American BJ25/SMe4 acoustic-electric bass looks as good as it sounds. You won't believe how dialed in and loud this bass can be until you play it for yourself. American-grown woods, cutting-edge design, and incredible electronics—that's Breedlove. Order now and hear what you've been missing. Includes deluxe hardshell Breedlove bass case.
