Comfy concert-size body and fast, friendly neck.
If you're looking for a guitar you can trust at a reasonable price, the Breedlove Atlas Series AC200/SM Acoustic Guitar is it. A solid Sitka spruce top provides a superb soundboard for resonant and clear tones and a comfortable, slim neck shape and low action delivers uncompromised playability. The Atlas Series AC200/SM Guitar combines innovative Breedlove design elements with quality construction. Features mahogany back and sides, a black bound body and neck, abalone rosette with black border, pearl dot inlays, satin finish, 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 guitar 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 guitar 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.

- Quality build
I saw this used AC200SM in a GC and fell in love with it. I had just been playing Martins and Taylors 5 times the price (and more) and this thing absolutely hung with them. From playability, tone, and construction, the Breedlove competes. I have never owned a Breedlove prior to this, but I am hooked. If there low-end guitar is THIS GOOD, well, the brand is okay in my book.
- Was this a gift?:
I bought this AC200/SM used; they don't make this model anymore, and I think I know why---it was too good for it's price range in relation to how much time it took to build it! The look of it has style and uniqueness, and it's sound is well balanced, not 'boxy' as so many other guitars in this price range are. One thing I am amazed at is how substantial and solid the neck is---the weight of this guitar will surprise you, but in a good way, as the neck affects the tone.I'm sure the JLD Bridge Truss system also lends well to the balanced, 'piano style' distinct tone that the higher-end Breedloves are so well known for.The action on mine was pretty high when I bought it, but that can be remedied very easily with a saddle and nut adjustment. The spruce top has a bit of the 'bear claw' swirl in it, and unlike all the other AD200/SM tops, this one is a light brown color---all the other one's i've seen have lighter colored tops...I like the color of mine better.They have kept their value in the used market quite well...and deservedly so. If you find one, give it a try...you'll be hooked!
Best acoustic guitar under a $1,000. Period. I own jumbo gibsons and vintage martins and always a little hesitant to take them out,this one I take everywhere. This guitar sounds excellent recorded and plays great through a PA with a simple pick up. Worth every cent.
I always wanted a Breedlove, but cannot afford a custom model. I played the Atlas models at my local guitar store and was amazed at how good they sound at about 1/2 the price of a comparable Taylor. I bought the concert style as it it a bit smaller than the dreadnought. Amazing sound--deep and rich. Before you buy a Taylor, check these out!
I got this guitar for Christmas. I wanted a Breedlove and after playing one locally, it was settled. Guitar costs about 1/2 of a comparable Taylor but has a much mellower sound (Taylors sound "bright" to me). I replaced the strings and the plastic saddle with a bone saddle. This guitar is terrific, though. Fun to play and sounds really great.
I bought this guitar from a local shop after playing my mom's old acoustic for a couple years. After playing a couple higher-end guitars (at the shop), I played the Breedlove and was surprised by how resonant it was for its price. I loved the action and contours too. While I would probably rather play a Martin or a Taylor (or a Laravee ;-)), this guitar fit my budget beautifully. I recommend it.
