The AC250/SM may be the most playable 12-string you've ever laid hands on.
The small, concert-size body delivers supreme playing comfort and a surprisingly big sound thanks to the expertly braced solid spruce top and deep body. Crafted to reproduce all the shimmering 12-string overtones, it comes with Fishman Classic IV electronics. It has black body binding, an abalone soundhole rosette with black border, abalone dot fingerboard inlays, satin finish, hand-rubbed neck, and chrome Grover tuners.
Breedlove crafts acoustic instruments that reflect the principles of uncompromising craftsmanship, environmental consciousness, and customer focus. The best aspects of traditional guitar making are fused with new ideas and relevant technology to create instruments with unsurpassed tone, feel, and visual appeal.
Each spectacular instrument in the Atlas Series is designed and engineered to attain these same qualities at an accessible price. They feature scalloped bracing, a pinless bridge, a dual-action truss rod, and the JLD Bridge Truss System. The bridge, fingerboard, and peghead overlay on each model is made from Indian rosewood and tops are crafted from solid wood. They have an ebony end pin, dovetail neck joint, and a slightly narrower nut (1-11/16"). All models have the same low string action for fast, comfortable playing. They're all set up and hand-inspected at Breedlove headquarters and come strung with light-gauge D'Addario EXP strings.

Wow just got this today! Bought a 2nd but can't find any flaws in it. I had to lower the action but what a beautiful guitar! The lows are spine chilling! The crisp sound of the fishman electronics are hair raising! This plays and sounds better than some mid level Taylos and Martins at half the price. A very light and little guitar with an amazing punch! You go Breedlove!
I've been working my way up the 12-string ladder for almost 40 years -- a half-dozen of them, each one better than the last. The Breedlove Atlas AC250/SM-12 is my next-to-the-last stop. I dreamed of and tried out "affordable" Martins and Taylors, then a couple of years ago, I visited Breedlove's factory in Tumalo, Ore., where I test-drove the tippy-top model. Exquisite sound, dazzling looks. The only thing the $10,000 guitar has over the Atlas model is the looks. So until I can afford the myrtlewood baby, I am tickled to death to play this "junior" Breedlove. Whether I'm finger-picking a worship song or strumming jazz chords or pounding out bluegrass, this 12 is up to it. I could play for hours -- and often do. Set-up from the retailer was smack-on; Grover tuners are a dream to work with; Fishman electronics deliver that sparkling acoustic sound through my Behringer mixer/Kustom speaker setup. Whether worshiping -- or wooing the Missus -- I've got an armful of class that I hope lasts me the rest of my life. With the sound and playability ofthis Breedlove Atlas, I can live without myrtlewood.
I just got it last week-end and have played it everyday since. I have a 6 String Breedlove, AC-25SR+, and was disappointed that it needed a fretdress before I could really play it like I wanted. With that experience behind me I was a little skeptical of getting another Breedlove. I checked the neck and played it for a while and found the action to be very very nice. The smaller AC body it very comfortable for my 5'2" frame and the sound is so smooth. All of the strings were perfect together, none trying to take the lime light from the other. I love this guitar. It is my second 12-string and has found a place on my all-time favorites list.
The action is like nothing I have ever experienced. While I am not a professional guitar player, I have been playing all my life - for pleasure. This guitar has changed everything. Plugged or unplugged.... Amazing.Now, I WANT to form a band, and feel that this instrument is capable of maybe, more than I am..! lol ---Highly recommended.
I recently purchased a Breedlove Atlas AC250. I played on several different guitars, including a Taylor 454ce, Takamine EG523SC12, and Martin J12-16GT, and was most impressed by the Breedlove. I went with the intentions of purchasing a Taylor, but left the store with the Breedlove. Hands down one of the best playing/sounding 12 string guitars: especially for the price!
I recently purchased a Breedlove Atlas AC250 12 string. I was amazed at its tone and playability.

You are going to be amazed at the tone and volume this little guy has. I have had Ovations, higher end Washburns, and Guilds that dont tone and playability this guitar has. My wife bought this one for me on my birthday and after three years of waiting, I say it is well worth the wait and the money. Plays like a Taylor or Martin and doesnt come close to the $$ you would pay for their equivalent models.
Hands down one of the best playing and sounding 12 string guitars in this or any price range. The Action is great!The Tone is Great!!The Elecronics and Superior!!Breedlove has made an excellect guitar great for all levels of playing experience. This is going to be your new favorite, trust me!!!
I'd been searching for a replacement to some stolen guitars and encountered the Breedlove by accident. I fell in love and purchased it on the spot. It has replaced my Taylor 814 as my favorite. Beautiful sound, extremely playable and a steal at the $ range.
Been playing for years on many brands of guitars, this one is very comfortable to play and has a very balanced tone. Compared this one with a couple of Takamines, and other brands as well and this was the most pleasent to play. I originaly went to purchase a jumbo body 12 string for the projected volume they have, but none played like this Breedlove. So I sacrificed a little volume for playability. But plug it in to a good system and there's plenty of volume with still a great sound. So for lack of a Jumbo body Breedlove available at the time of purchase, I gave the features a 9. Other than that it's a great 12 string well worth the price!
