I bought an Ovation "Ultra" 100% American made brand new in 1985, and thought it was high time for a new guitar. I wanted an all wood piece that would give me the thunder-like lows that I love. Well, after a full year of searching, the search is over. I returned a Fender to a music store, played all of the Taylors (which I loved) sent back a Martin, and toyed with Gibson, but I couldn't get over the glowing reviews of this Breedlove Atlas AD25/SR PLUS. I didn't realize my local store even carried them until one day I went and there it was, in a featured display in the humidity controled acoustic room. After playing it for a couple minutes I knew the search had ended. I tuned down to "drop D" and play a little "World on a String" by Mr. Neil Young. I almost fell out of my chair, and the salesguy just looked at me with his mouth open. I think the fillings in my teeth loosened a little. Sweet and Low baby. Let me tell you, this sweetheart has the tone, fit, finish, quality of at least a $2500.00 guitar. Simply put, it is flawless. Even now as I sit at home looking at it, I can't believe I own this masterfully built creation by Breedlove, a brand I'd never even heard of. If you want the best, bar none, run don't walk to your store or online and get this bought anyway you can. (Mines on a credit card) Just do it. You'll have a friend for life and you can quit searching and start playing. I'm just a living room player, but after this experience, I'm probably gonna start gigging again. Oh yeah, I played it through the Fender Acoustisonic Jr. at the store and the Fishman does not disappoint. The only set-up required was a slight turn of the truss rod to raise the action a bit.

This Acoustic/Electric plays like a dream. It has tremendous sound both unplugged and plugged. Cosmetics are beautiful. I have played many guitars over a 40 year span, and this one beats them all for the price. You will not be disappointed in this fine instrument.

I am a professional guitarist and have played many acoustic guitars in countless sessions. Recently while at a music store on a search for a new guitar I was able to play and listen to a lot of quality instruments over an extended period of time. Price was not an object. Long story short, the Breedlove AD25/SR Plus was what I went home with. I know that this guitar has been discontinued, but if you can find one, buy it.
I've noticed a lot of redundancies in the reviews on most guitar sites. Mostly overinflated 5.0's on almost every product made by the name brands such as Taylor, Martin, and Gibson. I'm going to tell you the truth. These products are spectacular, but after buying this breedlove, and having played literally every guitar in my local guitar shop, you won't be able to tell a difference in this sub-$1000 product and a $4000 Martin, Gibson, or Taylor. One of my good friends just bought a $2000 Taylor. He was extremely excited...until he played this breedlove and realized all the money that he had lost. If you have money to burn, by all means, buy an expensive guitar. If you want everything the mainstream brands offer, for a fraction of a price, buy this guitar.
Excellent even tone, very well balanced. The guitar sounds great, looks great and plays great! It really is a true value for a guitar. You'd be hard pressed to find anything better in this price range. Very easy to play, not stiff like some guitars, stays in tune, fun guitar to play hard to put down. Set up was excellent right out of the box which suprised me. I just tuned it up and played. In fact it hasn't need any adjustments at all. Breedlove really does fine job with its Atlas line.
Let me start off by saying I own a Taylor, (3)Martin's, Alverez, Tacoma, (2)Ovation's, Gibson Chet, (3)Takamine's, Washburn, And the Breedlove AD25/SR Plus, And I must say, This Breedlove is probably the best of them. It has great tone and is great through a PA. The playability is so nice, it maybe closer to a Grand Auditorium. I think it's a tad bigger than a dread. It is probably worth more than what it is listed for. The guitar is absolutely beautiful and will work with whatever style you are playing. I use it in the studio and it records awesome. Don't be afraid to buy this guitar. I would have no problem buying this over a Martin or Taylor.
I was in the market for a solid spruce top and solid rosewood back. I also wanted a cutaway and a built in pickup. This was the best in its class and the most affordable. I looked at Martin?s and Taylor?s (714CE abd 814CE), but could not justify the price difference (and I thought breedlove played just as well). The new models have built in tuners which is nice. I also got a hardshell case which is very well made. This guitar is listed as a dreadnought, but I would classify it somewhere between a dreadnought and a grand auditorium. It is very easy to play, sounds great (good volume, balanced and full sound and has great sustain). The appearance is very impressive so are the materials used (ie. Gold grover tuners, Daddario EXP strings, wood quality, etc.) I would highly recommend this guitar.
This guitar is amazing! Do not be fooled by the price. The only reason this guitar does not cost $2,000 is becuase it does not have Bob Taylor's name slapped on it or the big name recognition that Martin or Gibson have gotten over the years. It also is not made in the U.S. but none-the-less if you played this guitar without knowing the price and then picked up a more expensive guitar you'd think they'd be in the same price league. I own a Taylor 414 c.e. and this guitar sounds better than that and all other Taylors except the 900 series and the new GS series. But there is no way anyone could justify paying a $1,000 extra for a sound that is not any better than the Breedlove. I highly, highly reccomend this guitar to anyone.
I played many, many quality guitars before deciding on this one. I just could not find one that sounded richer and fuller yet with those ringing sweet highs. All others sounded limp and muted in comparison - even those in higher price bracket. Awesome Guitar!!
I got mine almost 2 years ago and one of the best investments I have ever made! such an incredible instrument for the price... feels great and sounds just as good. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a great guitar!!
this guitar is one of the most incredible acoustics I have ever played in my life, especially for the price. This guitar sounds INCREDIBLE plugged in, and the fishman pickup has a built-in tuner which is great for last minute tune-ups. Very strong construction and BEAUTIFUL looks; this guitar displays fabulous workmanship, especially for a foreign-made guitar. I love how it plays and feels, and the overall feel of this guitar is just welcoming and comfortable. As soon as I get the money I am buying one for SURE!
Last year I ordered an expensive hand-made guitar, but having to wait almost two years for it to be made and delivered was driving me crazy. I really wanted to play something at the local coffee shops that looked and sounded better than my old Washburn dreadnought. Also, I was looking for something with built-in electronics, as I was using a magnetic soundhole pickup on the Washburn, with unsatisfactory results. I didn't want to spend and arm and a leg either. When I walked into my local music store and started playing on this AD25SR Plus, I was stunned. Playing it fingerstyle, I discovered its rich, operatic voice with sonorous bass notes and ringing, singing high notes. In the store, I plugged it in to a Crate Gunnison amp and played a Phil Keaggy piece... I happened to look up and the sales rep was grinning from ear to ear as I played! I looked at the price tag and realized that it was within my budget (it's a steal at this price!). I tried some other guitars that day, but came home with the Breedlove. The guitar has made a hit at the coffee shop where I play on open mic nights. But now I have a problem... If the hand-made guitar I've ordered doesn't sound a lot better than this Breedlove, I'll have to send it back for a refund, ha!
