Bold, clear tone, with homegrown parts, and L.R. Baggs electronics”this concert 12-string guitar will make them dance in the aisles.
From Breedlove guitars comes a 12-string acoustic guitar guitar that's 100% true-red-white-and-blue American. The American guitars are built in Bend, Oregon, using quality products made right in the USA”no parts or designs were shipped to other countries. These guitars represent the true American spirit, using quality parts and Breedlove's famous craftsmanship, producing instruments that will stand the test of time and look absolutely beautiful in the process.
Built on the concert body platform, the Breedlove American C25/SMe12 12-string acoustic-electric guitar is designed to minimize overtones during a performance. The body width and depth produces balanced tone, but does so without the boomy bass or reverberation of a traditional dreadnought. The impressive balance and projection are substantial musical features on this beauty. Because of these qualities, the 12-string guitar's concert body lends itself perfectly for rhythmic chording, while still sounding great for playing in any style.
The solid Sitka spruce top and sapele back and sides of the Breedlove American C25/SMe12 guitar offer a balanced midrange with lots of bold projection. The soft cutaway adds comfort for accessing the upper frets. The rosewood fingerboard, and the one-piece mahogany neck produce rich clarity from note to note. The C25/SMe12's 25-1/2" scale, 1-3/4" nut width, and 16" radius offer comfort for intricate finger movements, and the gloss finish adds a high-end shine. The bridge truss system stiffens the bridge and relaxes soundboard to maximize sustain and resonate freely. Pinless, winged bridge and scalloped bracing artfully balances string-to-top energy. These design elements in the Breedlove American guitar yield abundant overtones, complexity, body resonance, and note-for-note swell”ideal for creating natural effects, single note complexity, and orchestral chording.
At the heart of the Breedlove American C25/SMe12 is the L.R. Baggs Element Active VTC Pickups System, letting you amplify your acoustic electric guitar quickly and easily. The Element Active Volume and Tone control (VTC) pairs the Element under-saddle transducer with a pre-contoured all-discrete class-A endpin preamp, and includes a small, removable soundhole-mounted volume and tone control for added convenience and versatility. The entire system is designed to install easily and features plug-and-play performance.
All Breedlove Custom Shop steel-string guitars (except for the Revival Series), Pro Series and Atlas Series guitars use the JLD Bridge Truss system. This device is a cantilevered truss that helps to counterbalance string tension at the bridge, creating a relaxed top and improved structural integrity. This allows the tops to be braced in a very progressive way, with a focus on realizing the full acoustic potential of the top. A relaxed top provides maximal wavelength response and a synergy is created by use of a graduated top thickness, balanced scalloped bracing, and a pinless bridge in combination with the bridge truss system. This gives Breedlove guitars the distinctive and highly dynamic "Breedlove Sound", with a piano-like bass and a remarkably well-balanced tone suitable for a broad variety of musical styles.
Other appointments include black body binding, American abalone rosette, single-action soundhole-adjustable truss rod, scalloped bracing, one-piece mahogany neck, Breedlove pearl dot position markers, asymmetrical Breedlove headstock with rosewood overlay, and Gotoh 381 tuners.
The Breedlove American C25/SMe12 acoustic-electric guitar includes the Breedlove lifetime warranty and a deluxe hardshell case, so you can keep your 6-string guitar looking as gorgeous as the day you bought it. Make that day today and order now.
