OVERVIEW

Large body. Large voice. And ready for the stage or studio.

The Studio Dreadnought is designed specifically for players who want to cast a deeper sonic imprint in their recordings. This guitar is ideal for creating a signature sound since Indian rosewood – often associated with the great dreadnoughts – takes its personality from the player. It'll really shine when both miked with your favorite external condenser mic, and when plugged in using the internal LR-TCV electronics. Other appointments include Mini 18-1 chrome tuners, Tonestone nut saddle, and pinless original bridge. Includes a deluxe foamshell case.

    Comments about Breedlove 2014 Studio Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I think when it comes to acoustic guitars Taylor, Martin, and custom/hand-made models sit atop the imaginary throne. I have a Taylor and was looking for something more moderately priced for acoustic gigs and general practicing as I didn't want to "risk" anything happening to my precious Taylor. I played several Breedlove models (all EXTREMELY nice) at a local store and while this guitar is certainly on-par with the "entry-level" Taylor and Martin guitars its price tag reflects it. So, when I saw it on the Stupid Deal of the Day it was a no-brainer to acquire the Studio model for the price of the Discovery or Pursuit models (both also EXTREMELY nice guitars).

    Hit the strings on this magnificent instrument and the sound fills the room. Each note is clear across the tonal spectrum and there are no frequency "drop-outs" or skews to the tone. Clean, pristine, and beautiful. The guitar was set up wonderfully out of the box with the strings slacked for shipping. I only needed tune and begin experiencing the joy of my first Breedlove guitar. The tuning keys are probably the most precise of any acoustic I've ever played; at first I thought there was something wrong then quickly realized that they are simply incredibly-fine tuners (18:1). The action is perfect (for me; smaller hands), neck is smooth and comfortable, and access to the higher frets is easily accomplished with the cut-away design (19th-fret access on an ACOUSTIC???). The pin-less bridge is a welcome feature and the LR-Baggs TCV pickup system is outstanding for live use AND recording. Battery access is as easy as one could imagine and the controls are intuitive enough as to only need to glance at the manual for tips and tricks. I didn't know how much difference in tone there would be between the Concert and Dreadnought body widths (Dreadnought is 1/4" thicker) but having played both I'm personally glad I got the Dreadnought. Your mileage may vary based on personal taste/need. That said, I can't in all honesty say I wasn't tempted to get the Concert model when IT was on the STODT earlier this week; if it comes up again my hand will most likely be quicker on my wallet. I don't think you can go wrong with either model. The included deluxe foamshell case is equally as nice as the one that came with my Taylor, if not sturdier.

    My only dilemma now is that I was looking for a "beater" but ended up with a top-notch instrument. However, even at MSRP this guitar is still a steal in my opinion and stands up nicely against the heralded brands. I was "considering" Breedlove for my needs but Musician's Friend sealed the deal with their outstanding pricing. Thanks to both MF and Breedlove for providing me all I wished for and more!! This guitar is worth every penny, on or off-sale.

    Comments about Breedlove 2014 Studio Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Only thing missing was a pickguard. Didn't come with one. Got one and now i'm happy. Had to sand down the saddle to improve the action. Came with D'Addario EXP strings which are great strings. Overall extremely happy. Got it Stupid Deal of the Day.

      Comments about Breedlove 2014 Studio Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Wife purchased this for me as a Xmas gift. It was a SDOTD, at a really incredible price. It's amazing! Easy to play, with crisp highs, with pronounce low tones. This is my 3rd acoustic, and by far the best feel, and sound. My wife didn't think there is a difference in guitars, until she heard the Breedlove. But she was floored. Really makes me a better sounding guitarist than I really am!

      Comments about Breedlove 2014 Studio Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      This is my second Breedlove and this is just a fantastic build. It has decent tuners with there logo on them but they do the job. The rosewood is book matched as well as the top. It came ready to go, setup was spot on. Frets could have been worked a little more, slight fret feel moving along the neck. Lastly soft case is nice but it's a soft case. It will open up in a couple years when the top seasons.

      Save yourself a lot of cash with this value leading monster! It's loud, full bodied and easy to play, yet it doesn't break the bank because it was made in Korea. Two magazines consider it to be top3 best guitar under 1K. The LR Baggs preamp is state of the art as well. You will also love changing strings without pegs or holes in the soundboard. Much sturdier that way.

        Comments about Breedlove 2014 Studio Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        The tone and playability are exceptional. I love the fact I can actually place my 1-2-3 fingers in the second fret for a traditional A chord. On my Taylor, I have to do the bent pinky thing to bar the B-G-and D strings - so really great for players with bigger fingers.
        I can tell you I have owned and/or currently own numerous Taylors, Martins, Ovations, and a myriad of other brands over the 40+ years I have been playing and this guitar is truly outstanding in every way. The straight out sound from the DI to house speakers is rich and warm and not in need of adjusting. I bought this on a SDOD for the same price that is listed today... penny for penny, it's the best guitar I have ever owned. And it makes makes me miss my Martin DC16GTE a lot less!

            Guitar plays and sounds great and looks awesome!
            Packaging was excellent, came in the gig bag, inside a box, inside another box, and yet inside another.

            Very full sound!
