Made for the solo performer with side sound hole and exceptional electronics.
Optimized for solo songwriting, but also perfectly suited to recording and performance, the '16 Solo Dreadnought delivers a warm voice and substantial projection. The solid Sitka spruce top is paired with an extra-deep sapele body to generate bright and clearly articulated single notes. Crafted to help players accurately hear their instrument when playing, the Breedlove Monitor side sound hole projects sound directly toward the ear, allowing guitarists to hear their performance with an entirely new dimension of clarity and detail. The Solo Concert includes a proprietary LR-TCV preamp with an L.R. Baggs Element pickup, a 3-band EQ, presence, phase, and a stealthy chromatic tuner.
Breedlove Solo Series
The Solo Series is designed to make your playing experience as personal as possible, with a unique Side Monitor Soundhole that virtually puts your ears in the audience while you play. Hearing every nuance of your instrument—whether you’re writing, rehearsing or performing—gives you a sonic perspective that will bring out the best in your playing. Equipped with a US-made L.R. Baggs quartz piezo, the Solo should become your go-to instrument in any performance setting, from impromptu jams to writing sessions, to stages large and small, with a preamp system that can grow with you as you evolve as a player and performer.
Breedlove Pinless Bridge
The Breedlove Pinless Bridge helps maintain the integrity of the top by eliminating the need for six drilled string holes. The fewer holes in your soundboard, the more evenly the sound wave can move across the interior, without any loss of energy. The Breedlove Pinless Bridge also provides a gentler string-break angle from the bridge to the top of the saddle, reducing saddle strain. This innovative bridge also makes string changes a breeze, especially on 12 strings. Plus, you’ll never again have to worry about lost, worn-out, or broken bridge pins.
Breedlove guitars feature a slimmer neck profile which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish also contributes to ideal playability. The labor-intensive finish process includes precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.

Comments about Breedlove 2016 Solo Dreadnought Acoustic Electric Guitar:
I own a Martin Dreadnaught and a Taylor 614ce and this guitar can easily keep up with both of them plugged in and unplugged. It has a rich quality you have hear to believe. These Breedloves are an exceptional value. Try one you will not be disappointed. I own 3 and I have 2 more ordered.
