      Comments about Breedlove Atlas Series Studio C250/SMe-12 12-String Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I normally don't buy guitars without playing them first. I ordered this one because of the price and I was looking for a 12 string. What a nice surprise...plays well right from the box and sustain...crazy....I've ordered a lot from musicians friend and always have been satisfied and this was no exception. I was looking at a similar priced taylor or a less fender but this beat both for the price. Case is well built and solid. This was a stupid deal of the day

      All you could ask for

      By Sidgr

      Comments about Breedlove Atlas Series Studio C250/SMe-12 12-String Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      My first guitar was beat up Ukrainian 12 string i found in someones trash. I played that thing til the sun rose, and it destroyed my fingers, I did not know any better, and well how would I i was 11. I eventually got a guitar for Christmas, but it was just a regular ol' 6 string. It just did not have that sound that i was so used to with my old guitar. So when I came into money I went to a guitar store looking for my guitar for life. I was glad to say that I found this beauty. I was nearly 100 times easier to play than either of my other guitars or any I had played previously, and this was a full 12 string. It was love at first play, it felt natural to play, and i have had it for three years, and to date is still the best guitar I have ever played.

            Comments about Breedlove Atlas Series Studio C250/SMe-12 12-String Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            I purchased the Breedlove Atlas 12 string used from MF. I was concerned about buying a used 12 string online due to the possibility of damage to the neck from a prior owner.When the guitar arrived I was amazed, it is like brand new, couldnt find a single scratch or anything to call it "used".As for the guitar, it is not a very loud guitar but it sounds so good I am not concerned that it is not as loud as my Tacoma Dreadnoughts. The lows are very pleasing, the highs are shimmering, and best of all the mids are not overpowering.Action and playability is INCREDIBLE!! This guitar frets amazingly easy for a 12 string.BUY IT!

            Almost perfect

            from Chicago

            Comments about Breedlove Atlas Series Studio C250/SMe-12 12-String Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            Love this guitar! Sounds as good and plays easier than more expensive instruments.Stays in tune even when bringing in and out to and from gigs.I bought the Breedlove hard case to protect it and that was one of my best moves. I never heard of Breedlove before I played this guitar but once I played and heard this instrument I did a lot of research on the company and decided to tell the world about them. The only reason I didn't give this guitar a perfect score is because NOTHING IS PERFECT.

            Great Guitar

            from Asheboro, NC

            Comments about Breedlove Atlas Series Studio C250/SMe-12 12-String Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            I got this guitar for my wife, I was a little unsure about buying a Breedlove because I didn't know anything about them. But it turned out to be the best buy I ever made. The action couldn't be any better (right ot of the box)you can play this guitar anywhere on the neck with ease,and the sound, well you just have to hear it.I could go and on. Great buy, I recommend it no matter what kind of music you play.

            Great 12-string

            By MartinMan88

            from Florida

            Comments about Breedlove Atlas Series Studio C250/SMe-12 12-String Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            Got this from a Guitar Center in Orlando. Great set-up out of the box. Too bad it doesn't come with a case - only a bag. But, they gave me a credit towards a nice TKL case. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 on Quality is because it is laminate back and sides. On almost a thousand dollar guitar, I expected (and the store clerk) said it was solid back and sides.Great action - very easy to play. On-board tuner make it a snap to sound good. Overall extremely please with this guitar! You won't be disappointed. I am a martin owner and it stood up equally well with Martin 12-strings. Martin doesn't offer too many 12-strings (esp in this price range). If you prefer Martins, you will be pleasantly surprised by Breedlove.

            12-string to have!!!

            By Guitar Man-ocIUN

            from Deep South

            Comments about Breedlove Atlas Series Studio C250/SMe-12 12-String Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            This guitar is the one to buy for somebody who wants to expand the sound experience and for active musicians to play long gigs. I was surprised by how playable this guitar is. The neck does not have that typical wide and thick feel as expected for 12 string. Plus action is quite low with no fret buzz. In regards of the sound - it is very clear, brisk and rich. Compared to Gibsons, Martins, and Taylors - I could not hear a signifficant difference. There is no reason to buy these more expensive guitars except a showing of. If you want to have great playing and comfortable 12- string, buy this Breedlove. I am going to put it on my Santa's list this year.

            Want One

            By Ken-pWJdN

            from Missouri

            Comments about Breedlove Atlas Series Studio C250/SMe-12 12-String Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            My best friend for over 30 years just bought one. I'm a Martin acoustic person, especially when it comes to a 12 string. For me, there are Martin D-28-12's and there's everybody else. Well, that was until I heard this Breedlove. I was stunned. The sound coming out of these Breedloves has to be heard to be believed. If you're looking and you're a purist like I am, play one of these Breedloves. The tone and depth is unbelievably amazing.
