        To summarize:
        Pros - Very well made. Great tone. Great sustain and clarity. The LR Baggs pickup makes it come alive.
        Cons - Nut is set too high, at least for me. Abalone around the box detracts from its attractiveness.
        Ugly pick guard. Case doesn't close without tweeking each time you close it.

        I don't mean to be negative. For sure, this is the best sounding acoustic I've owned, and it is a joy to play. I'd buy another one in a minute. For the price, I don't think you'll get a better sounding guitar. This model is made in Korea, and if I ever get the money, I will definitely buy an upper end American Breedlove guitar. Kim Breedlove is a great luthier!
        The LR Baggs is a real plus on this guitar. It really shapes the tone and will bring out the highs and lows with a few minor adjustments. I was somewhat disappointed in the looks of this guitar. I wish they would leave out the abalone around the perimeter of the box and just leave it on the soundhole. It is a little too flashy for me. Also, the pickguard is one of the ugliest I've ever seen. It seems to clash with the abalone. I had a small body Taylor with the same wood (rosewood sides and spruce top) and it was absolutely gorgeous! On the Taylor, only the sound hole had the abalone, which, to me is plenty. Otherwise you get that "Roy Rogers" overdone look. Some players like that, but I don't. On the other hand, the workmanship is superb.
        This is truly a well-made guitar, but I think the strings are set too high at the nut. This makes it really hard to adjust the action low, which is how I like my acoustics. I live in Montana, where the relative humidity is very low, so adjusting the neck and saddle has been a challenge. I do my own adjustments, and have had a pretty fair amount of success, and I don't claim to be a pro, but so far, the guitar's action has not been perfect, mainly because the nut is set too high. I am thinking about taking it to a good luthier to have it set up properly. This is the first guitar that I've owned that also needs to be adjusted on the inside of the guitar, which is an exclusive (I think) feature of Breedlove guitars. It really wasn't that difficult. The tone of the guitar is beautiful, although I expected a little more volume from this dreadnought. Undoubtedly, the gloss finish cuts down on the volume somewhat. I am very impressed with the clarity and sustain, especially on the first string, which has been a problem with other guitars I've own.
        The sound of this guitar is very clear, and it is a real pleasure to play. I was a little disappointed that the top of the case doesn't close right down on the bottom. You have to bring it slightly to the left to make it close properly. Also, Breedlove needs to start making their cases with a little recession where the volume knob is on the guitar. I always have to pull on the inside of the case so as not to put pressure on the knob when closing it.
        Well worth a grand. You'll pay a lot more for a Taylor or Martin that gets a sound like this.

        I must admit I do not share the enthusiasm of the other reviewers. Yes, this is a fine guitar, with very good tone and sustain. It has a crisp sound overall, but not a lot of harmonic presence or overtones. But at this price-point, I would not call it an exceptional guitar.
        This guitar is voiced for medium to heavy gauge strings, so the action is set very high. The frets themselves were very high; it felt like they'd rip the calluses off my fingertips when sliding up or down the neck. Even though I was impressed by the tone, I was very disappointed in the playabilty and almost sent it back. Instead, I invested in a professional set-up that included filing down the frets and shaving down the nut. There was enough of an improvement in the playability that I decided to keep it, although at this price, I don't feel I should have had to spend all that extra cash right out of the box to bring this instrument up to its potential. Even with the improved playability, it is still a VERY unforgiving instrument; it requires precise technique to really bring out its virtues and will sonicly punish any sloppiness or inattention.
        Visually, all that abalone is a bit ostentatious for my tastes.
        I was impressed by the ruggedness of the case, although the six hasps seem like overkill and can be tedious. I especially appreciated the shoulder strap, and although one of the hooks it attaches to came unriveted after three years, it was easy to repair.

        Comments about Breedlove Atlas Stage Series D25/SRe Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I was in the market for a new acoustic, and wanted to stay under fifteen hundred. For reference, I currently play an amazing Taylor 414ce. Played the Taylor 2 series (rubbish), 3 series (expensive), and the Martin Performing Artist series (not worth the quid). Being disheartened, I checked out Breedlove after a friend told me to look into them. Glad I did.
        After a lot of research, and a nice coupon from MF, I took a chance on the Atlas Stage D25/SRe. Arrived quickly, and I was impressed as soon as I took the case from the box. Case is really solid! When I opened the case, I was surprised how good looking the guitar was. Pictures don't do it justice. Took it out of the case and continued being impressed. Fit, finish, and overall feel are superb. The I tuned her up with the fantastic built in tuner. What happens next was literally music to my ears.
        What amazing, booming tone! Very balanced sound, with a wonderfully pronounced low end. This guitar sounds and plays like a guitar two times the price! Couldn't be happier.

          Comments about Breedlove Atlas Stage Series D25/SRe Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I bought this guitar with the intent of having a nice higher end one to last for many years. The first one came in, and I was pretty happy. After a few days I started noticing intonation problems. The intonation was so flat at the 12th fret that I requested an exchange. New guitar came in, and the intonation was spot on. After a few days/weeks of playing I started to notice that the action just didn't feel right. The high e string is right where it's supposed to be, but the low e is too low. Also the high e slides off of the edge of the frets if I am not careful. I don't have the luxury of a good guitar repairman nearby so I have yet to get a proper evaluation. I am just upset that I am having these issues with a higher end guitar. It's true, you should play before you buy.

          Comments about Breedlove Atlas Stage Series D25/SRe Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I bought this guitar because of the great tone and beautiful appearance. After playing it for a week it was obvious that there were some neck and fret issues. After a professional set up and fret work it now plays wonderfully. It also came with the wrong radius saddle but the guy that did the neck work was able to fix that as well. The fret, neck and saddle work cost a bit but it was well worth the expense and this guitar now rivals my 2 martins and 2 taylors in playability.

          Comments about Breedlove Atlas Stage Series D25/SRe Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I have had this guitar for 3 years now. I play in a gigging band and also in church almost every Sunday. My sister is in the same band and she plays a Taylor 114CE. I can tell you that my Breedlove totally blows her Taylor away. I have also played 314 and 414's and same thing.. the Breedlove all the way. The guy that owned the 314 played mine and although he wouldn't say, he definately recognized that the Breedlove made him wonder why he spent so much on his guitar! I'm telling you, hands down, this guitar is a much better value than even the Taylor 414 at almost double what I paid. The clarity of each individual string is amazing.. the highs are def high, and the lows are just right for me. I have worn through frets already and just got my guitar back from the local repair shop after a thorough setup and it has never played better. I think the setup out of the box was a little high, but not objectionable. I also stop at 3 local guitar shops on a regular basis and play other guitars just in the case that I find something better (haha!), but seriously, There are many guitars that sound different but I have yet to play something that I like better other than maybe some very high end guitars that are thousands more than mine. I don't know how you could go wrong by buying this guitar even if your budget is twice the price of this guitar new.

          Comments about Breedlove Atlas Stage Series D25/SRe Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I have owned the older version of this guitar (AD25-SRplus) for about 7 years now and it has performed extremely well with heavy use. The tone, fit and finish, and volume are perfect for the variety of music I play (rock, blues, jazz, reggae, etc). The new L.R. Baggs electronics are much improved over the old Fishman electronics, which made poor contact with the battery--so the tuner would fade in and out. My wife has the new L.R. Baggs on her new Breedlove guitar and loves it. I recently had a problem with the handle breaking on my case and contacted customer service in Bend, Oregon. Terri Hensley provided superior service and shipped me out a replacement that same day. She also called to touch base and make sure everything was taken care of to my satisfaction. Talk about great service! My family owns several Breedlove guitars (and Martin and Taylor), and the kind of service Terri delivered has convinced me to continue buying and playing Breedlove.

          Comments about Breedlove Atlas Stage Series D25/SRe Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I have been looking at the top Taylors and Martins for a long time. I have passed by Breedloves at Guitar Center without a second glance many times. Finally an associate there put this model in my hands and made me play it. Whoa, I couldn't believe what came out of it. I grabbed an 8 series Taylor and played them back to back and the Breedlove sounded better. Enough said, I walked right out the door with it. You will not be disappointed. If you haven't been able to buy that Taylor or Martin, you can get this Breedlove and it will appreciate in value or hold its value as musicians begin to grab them up. The sound just rings forever and the volume and tone are incredible. Plug it in and be further amazed. I'm looking into a 12 string Breedlove next. Then maybe a mandolin, ukelele, .....

            This is a fantastic guitar. I orderd a factory restock, which I'm always a little skeptical about, and this guitar was amazing right out of the box. The action is as good as any Taylor and the sound and sustain is incredible. It sounds every bit as good as a guitar going for 5 times more. If you have any doubts about this guitar, you can hang them up.

            This is one of my best purchases in a long time.

            Review of Atlas Stage Series D25/SR Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar

            Comments about Breedlove Atlas Stage Series D25/SRe Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            Positive - great value: although it lacks the popularity of Taylor and Martin, you get a much greater value than the big names at this price point. Beautiful sound, all wood, fantastic finish with gorgeous inlays, very impressive electronics. Excellent hardshell case compared to soft case with competitors. This instrument should stand the test of time, and as Breedlove reputation grows, should prove to be a good investment.

            Negative - only one so far: there was no manual or instructions of any kind for the electronics, although operation is straightforward and Breedlove quality department offered a useful guideline.
