    The Breedlove Atlas Series AD25/SM Acoustic-Electric Guitar is a solid Sitka spruce top and solid mahogany-back dreadnought with a soft cutaway for extended upper fret access. Ready to jam, it represents the finest in quality acoustic-electric workmanship, with a reliable, easy-to-use, and great sounding Fishman Classic IV pickup. The AD25/SM features a tortoise bound body with BWBWB purfling, abalone rosette with black border, abalone dot fingerboard inlays, glossy finish, hand-rubbed neck, dovetail neck joint, dual-action truss rod, gold Grover tuners, and an ebony end pin.

    Breedlove crafts acoustic instruments that reflect the principles of uncompromising craftsmanship, environmental consciousness, and customer focus. The best aspects of traditional guitar making are fused with new ideas and relevant technology to create instruments with unsurpassed tone, feel, and visual appeal.

    Each spectacular guitar in the Atlas Series is designed and engineered to attain these same qualities at an accessible price. They feature scalloped bracing, a pinless bridge, a dual-action truss rod, and the JLD Bridge Truss System. The bridge, fingerboard, and peghead overlay on each model is made from Indian rosewood and tops are crafted from solid wood. They have an ebony end pin, dovetail neck joint, and a slightly narrower nut (1-11/16"). All models have the same low string action for fast, comfortable playing. They're all set up and hand-inspected at Breedlove headquarters and come strung with light-gauge D'Addario EXP strings.

    I recently purchased the AC25/SM from a local music shop after playing many, many guitars from Seagull, Simon & Patrick, Cort, Washburn, Alvarez, Blueridge, etc. There are some really great acoustic's out there for under a grand, but to my ears this one sounded simply wonderful. Nice defined bass (not boomy, but mellow), clear mid's (lively would be the best way to describe) and crisp high's. I think it really is a matter of personel preference, so I won't drone on about how terrific it sounds, but rather some of the other features.The workmanship is simply great. I have not found a blemish, scratch, mis-joint, or anything out of align. IMHO very nice looking guitar with the gold tuners, abolone rosette, tortoise binding and distinctive headstock and bridge. Cutaway is nicely designed, not over done. Gold strap pins pre-installed (why don't all acoustic manufacturers do this), and nice perl dot inlays.The action was perfect for my style of play right from the store, needed no adjustment. The neck is smooth, action low, itonation excellent, and zeo fret buzz even when strummed agressively. Very responsive guitar, produces great tone with a light touch. Nice sustain. Plugged in it sounds ok, pickup is adequate, eq. works well, no hum from the preamp. For my purposes the Fishman IV is fine, but have heard better. Easy to change the battery but no built in tuner.Overall I really, really like this guitar, from it's awesome sound to its incredible looks. However there are a lot of very nice guitar's available for under a grand, and simply trying out as many as possible until you find one that "does it" is my best advice.If you get a chance, at least try out one of the Breedlove Atlas guitars, well worth the effort.

    This guitar as others have said had great action and played very well and competed against low end Taylors and Martins. Great guitar it seemed.Then I changed strings and it seemed like the action had changed in 3-4 months. Action was very high. I had my bridge shaved down and good to go for awhile. Then I had fret buzz. Finally I paid a Luthier to set it up per factory specs. Again guitar was good for awhile.Within 5 months I had some fret buzz again. Anyway I use a hydrometer for my guitars and I have a Martin D35 I purchased after the Breedlove and has been in the same conditions with none of these problems. I dont care at all for the pins/bridge setup on this guitar. The other cosmetic thing is the paint on the fretboard is fading. Also the Guitar is very heavy even heavier than other Breedloves I have played. All in all if the guitar could stay in a factory setup I would like it as it is I rarely play it.

    If I close my eyes I think its a taylor, martin, gibson ;)

    By nunya biz

    from Somewhere in USA!

    its a nine would be a ten if she were made in good ole USA!
    Just like the title says. I only wish when I looked inside the guitar it didn't say "Made in Korea" That is kinda bothersome to me however, I was on a budget and the sound of this guitar ranks way up there with some of the heavy hitters. Big full rich sound, I could not believe my ears. I have been playing guitar for over 25 years and this one takes the cake. It is the only instrument I own that is not made in america but, WOW! I highly recommend this guitar. I played a martin before I played this the Martin was more and I thought this sounded better than the martin and it was in my budget. Big sound, small budget! Save a few coins get this guitar! The last guitar I owned was a Taylor 614CE and this compares sound quality! ;-) I give it a 9 on a ten scale because its made over seas.
    seems to be good ... solid top and back.
    good value, over seas guitar. INitially I thought it was american made

    reliable instrument!

    By ReklineSyr420

    from Syracuse, NY

    I love this guitar. My wife bought it for me for Christmas and after it was set up WOW! Tone, playability response. I would suggest having the neck set up by a professional and I use EXP's and you have yourself an instrument comparable to any taylor!

    One Sweet Guitar

    By Tshank

    from Kansas

    The single finest acoustic instrument I've ever played. I bought mine over a year ago and through traveling with my band and spending the winter working in Wyoming, this guitar has held up to everything I could through at it. From the cold dry winters to the rowdiest crowds. I personally find the heavy weight of the guitar very comforting. I've never had any trouble simply pulling it out of the gig bag, tuning up and going.

    Excellent Guitar

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    I have owned this guitar for a year now and i still love it like a child. The guitar has a low action and a smooth feel, I would recomend it to anyone. Another plus is it has sound that can compete with taylors and martins, for a thousand dollars cheaper. Granted the Fishman electronics dont have the sound quality of the taylor expression system, the TE is very fragile compared to the fishman, so its great for an on the go band.

    Awesome Value

    By Uncle Phuc

    from Boston, MA

    Having played in gigging bands for 17 years, I stopped when my first child came along. Three years later and I'm ready to start again and I needed a solid gigging acoustic guitar. In the sub-$1200 price range, I tried Martin, Takamine, Seagull, and a few others, and this one was far and away the best. Great sound, great feel, great features (pinless bridge, grover tuners...) and a simple look (I have no need for fancy inlays or binding). The electronics sound great and are easy to deal with, it's comfortable on a strap, and it's very well built and I feel confident gigging with it.

    Cannot beat the value for the price. Period.

    By Brian-vcotR

    from Milford, MA

    I received my AC25/SM on Friday. I found one refurbished which made it a no brainier for the $. I've been playing it non-stop for the past 48 hours. I had played one in stores a few times and fell in love with it, and now that I have it in my basement with my full set-up I think it is the perfect guitar for my needs. I needed an acoustic-electric for open mic gigs with my buddy. This guitar is exactly what I need. No more, no less. Breedlove knows what they are doing.

    Buy this now before they get expensive!

    Spent some time playing some Breedloves and this guitar was the best value in the whole store. The craftsmanship is remarkable and I really like the pinless bridge and unfinished neck. The action is great right out of the box, too! I wish it had solid side and maybe a Fishman with the onboard tuner, but hey you can't have it all.

    Can't go wrong

    They just keep getting better from Korea (I like the Guild's too, but this guitar is superior). Breedlove is doing the requisite quality control in OR and it shows.Just bought this guitar and it definitely lives up to the reviews on this site and others. I played just about every comparable option from $750.00 to $1,000.00 and this one is the best. Crisp projection, well balanced. A less bass than my '73 D-28, but other than that the sound is close in quality - and this is a NEW guitar, not 33 years old. Nice fretwork and nearly perfect cosmetically. I am having the action lowered. My tech said he could probably get the job done in a day or two. But then I got a call from him a couple of hours later saying it was ready. He said he had "other work" to get done, but he just had to play this guitar again :).
