Full dreadnought size body with solid woods, a graduated top, and L.R. Baggs electronics.

The Breedlove Cascade D/CRe Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar represents stunning value with all solid woods, a graduated top, rosewood binding, mosaic inlay, L.R. Baggs Element Active VTC, and a deluxe hardshell case.

Breedlove has chosen Western red cedar for the D/CRe soundboard. This form of cedar is respected for its fine harmonic and dynamic qualities. For the Cascade Series, Breedlove has given the cedar top a graduated thickness, designed for root-note precision, clarity and focus. Solid rosewood for the back & sides reinforces the natural bass of this full dreadnought body shape, producing an overall acoustic tone that is extremely well-balanced.

L.R. Baggs Pickup and Preamp
Plugged in, the L.R. Baggs Element Active System VTC undersaddle acoustic pickup delivers performance previously unattainable from an undersaddle pickup. The streamlined and efficient design removes every unnecessary internal component to improve the coupling between the transducer and the guitar. This substantially improves the sensitivity of the transducer so the acoustic guitar pickup delivers a robust, lively, and open sound with great dynamics and a delicate high end.

The L.R. Baggs Element Active System pairs the Element undersaddle transducer with a pre-contoured, all-discrete class A endpin preamp and includes small, removable soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls (VTC) for added convenience and versatility. The system provides excellent string-to-string balance.

            Comments about Breedlove Cascade D/CRe Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            This is a beautifully crafted guitar that handles strumming fine! I was worried when I saw that review and then received the guitar. Strummed a bit and heard some ringing figuring it was true, but once the strings broke in after a few minutes, it sounds AWESOME. Love it! I have a Martin and love it too, but would recommend either brand to anyone. Can't wait to gig with it tonight.

                  FOR THE PRICE THIS IS AN EXCELLENT GUITAR. I DISAGREE THAT THE CEDAR TOP DOESNT HANDLE STRUMMING. I THREW A PAIR IF MY FAVORITECOATED STRINGS ON IT AND I THOUGHT I WAS IN HEAVEN.

                  Comments about Breedlove Cascade D/CRe Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                  This is a very well built and nicely appointed guitar. Individual notes ring nicely, but strumming is where it is useless. I have read about the cedar tops doing this before, but perhaps it was something else. Thanks to MF for their wonderful return policy.

                        Incredible sound and feel. Very articulate, well balanaced. Loud but not "boomy". Easy to play. Excellent craftsmanship. Reminds me of a classic Martin.
