OVERVIEW

Orchestra size body with solid woods, a graduated top, and LR Baggs electronics.

The Breedlove Cascade OM/CRe Cutaway Orchestra Acoustic-Electric Guitar stunning value with all solid woods, a graduated top, rosewood binding, mosaic inlay, LR Baggs Element Active VTC, and a deluxe hardshell case.

Breedlove has chosen Western Red Cedar for the OM/CRe soundboard. This form of cedar is respected for its fine harmonic and dynamic qualities. For the cascade series, Breedlove has given the cedar top a graduated thickness, designed for root-note precision, clarity and focus. Solid rosewood for the back & sides reinforces the natural bass of this body Orchestra shape, producing an overall acoustic tone that is extremely well balanced.

LR Baggs Pickup and Preamp
Plugged in, the LR Baggs Element Active System VTC undersaddle acoustic pickup delivers performance previously unattainable from an undersaddle pickup. The streamlined and efficient design removes every unnecessary internal component to improve the coupling between the transducer and the guitar. This substantially improves the sensitivity of the transducer so the acoustic guitar pickup delivers a robust, lively, and open sound with great dynamics and a delicate high end.

The LR Baggs Element Active System pairs the Element undersaddle transducer with a pre-contoured all-discrete class A endpin preamp and includes small, removable soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls (VTC) for added convenience and versatility. The system provides excellent string-to-string balance.

Disapointing

Comments about Breedlove Cascade OM/CRe Cutaway Orchestra Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The volume control and tone are located in the sound hole which is odd and prevents the use of a muffler for stage use
Also battery is way up inside sound hole making it impossible to change with strings on
Not a good gigging guitar

    Comments about Breedlove Cascade OM/CRe Cutaway Orchestra Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Got it for my wife's bday a couple months ago, after it first went on closeout. She wanted a Martin, I got her this and she found out before it arrived. She wasn't too sure about my decision until it got here, and now all thoughts of a Martin are banished. Best guitar out there at this price, hands down. Sounds great, looks great, has great character. there are nice touches and details that are not visible in the pictures, such as the fretboard inlays and the deep rich wood on the sides and back. The case alone show a commitment to beauty and quality.
    IMO, the mark of a good guitar is that it makes you want to pick it up and play it. This guitar has been picked up plenty.

      Comments about Breedlove Cascade OM/CRe Cutaway Orchestra Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      One of the best guitars I have played. Makes me want to play, makes me sound like a better player, and makes other guitar players jealous. What else could you ask for? Played nice Martins and Taylors quite a bit. My wife always wanted a Martin, but I got her this instead. She was disappointed until she opened the package and saw the awesome case. It only got better from there. Now she wouldn't trade it for anything.
      Tone-wise somewhat between a Martin and a Taylor (closer to Martin), not as "powerful" acoustically as some of the more expensive Martins but perhaps a tad bit more "smooth".
      The only "con" would be the slightly awkward volume controls which are inside the sound hole, however, it is designed intentionally that way to minimize the holes in the wood of the guitar and to improve the acoustics. So unless you have need to constantly adjust the volume and tone of your guitar during a performance then I wouldn't worry about it.
      Picked up mine (I mean my wife's) used condition 2 and she wouldn't have know it wasn't new if I didn't tell her (stupid me, right?)

        The Breedlove company continues to make a quality instrument at an incredibly affordable price point. Quality materials and construction in a very playable guitar. The guitar should open up over time which will increase and enhance its sound unplugged

        Comments about Breedlove Cascade OM/CRe Cutaway Orchestra Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I'm a big fan of Breedlove and their "Breedlove sound" (the ones with the JDL truss in them). This is not it and very different sounding and knew that, but I was casually looking into a possible Martin OM-1GT because I wanted that OM sound and wanted "a Martin", just to say "I have a Martin' and pay respect to their company and what they have done for us guitar players. That Martin was super, accept for the strange feeling of the Stratbond neck laminates panels feeling like bumpy layers. Other have mentioned this too.

        When Musician Friend had this major (insane) price drop due to the ending of the Cascade line it was a no-brainer and forced me to spend money I didn't want too.

        Was street priced at x (MF will not let me mention value) above that Martin, now at nearly x less than Martin OM-1GT ,and this Breedlove give you "better wood" all around plus electric – well enough said. I play with flesh and lean toward spruce only because of that. Cedar is bright enough my friends and moves with slight touch.

        Act fast or this review will be meaningless to you. These guitars will pop back up to near original street price after they are sold out. They are not worth the price Musicians Friend is selling them for; they are worth much much much much more!

        Your OM search stops here for now!
