A solid red cedar top and beautiful mahogany back and sides generate a warm tone with good projection and make the Breedlove acoustic-electric guitar an excellent value. The Breedlove Passport C250/CM has both integrated electronics and top-quality bracing in the top and back for increased resonance. The Passport Active VTC pickup lets you be heard in any venue and a built-in chromatic tuner with backlit screen makes it easy to stay in tune.

Comments about Breedlove Passport C250/CMe Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar on faith based on reputation from others who have Breedloves and from the reviews for their instruments. I have to admit, even with the high expectations, I was still impressed with the value when I opened it, made a couple very slight tuner adjustments (already set up) and began to play it. The set up was buzz free but immediately comfortable and consistent across the length of the neck.

The top of this guitar comes alive while playing it far more than most low to mid priced acoustics ever will.

The tone is well balanced across the strings- there's no muddiness, no overpowering of low or high strings.

All in all, very impressed!

Nice guitar

Comments about Breedlove Passport C250/CMe Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

My first Breedlove - very well made and has a strong projection considering the Tusq saddle. neck is comfortable and string spacing is perfect for these small hands. The Electronics are more than adequate - clear and not nasal sounding thru my champion amp. I changed strings right away and lowered the saddle to 6/64 ths at the 12th. next will be a bone saddle - im very pleased with guitar - I find it handles flatpicking and fingerstyle well and its easier to handle than my dreads which is a nice change at times.

        Comments about Breedlove Passport C250/CMe Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        Very nice quality instrument at a good price. Nice that they are made in Korea & inspected at the U.S. factory before shipping,so you get an instrument that you don't have to take to a tech the same day for a setup.

        Comes with a gig bag which is a nice plus; not as good as a hardshell case, obviously, but better than no case at all and no one else at this price point is doing that as far as I know, so it definitely added to my incentive to try it. I was a bit nervous about buying an acoustic guitar online without playing it first, but no problems. Sounds & plays great! Also comes with an extra bridge & some shims if you need to make adjustments to the action.

        Company responded quickly to an online inquiry I sent them, so all around, I would highly recommend Breedlove in general & this guitar in particular.

        Comments about Breedlove Passport C250/CMe Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I was astonished to get a guitar that was so well set up, with nice detail work (e.g., frets and fingerboard) for this low price. The sound is excellent both acoustically and through the on-board pickup. That makes the guitar really useful for both live gig and studio work. I can leave my expensive acoustic at home now!

            This guitar is a true bargain! Plays like a 3 times more expensive instument. Breedlove does an outstanding set up job. I sold my upscale Alvarez, just because the Breedlove played better and sounded as good.

                            Yep. these gorgeous guitars are made in Korea. Then sent back to Breedlove for a finale check and set-up.

                            NO ONE ELSE DOES THIS! A "Big Bang" for yer buck!
                            Craftmanship is "perfect", or they wouldn't let it pass! Been purchasing,Taylors, Martins and Gibsons (on line)over the years and returning only days later Mostly because they are all slopped together. But Breedlove has a differant program, and it's in your favor! Breedlove is the "bomb"! Highly reccomended....It was so nice to recieve a guitar that was perfectly "set-up"!

                            Comments about Breedlove Passport C250/CMe Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                            This Breedlove delivers! I have a Taylor 310, and I travel as a Cruise Ship musicians and prefer not to bring my more expensive guitars with me. Previously took a Yamaha APX and it just wasn't for me. This guitar has great warmth and feel for hundreds less than Taylors and Martins of the same build quality. When it comes to Acoustic Guitars with Laminate back and sides and a Solid top, I think it all comes down to personal preference. This thing is built just as well and actually feels a little more "Authentic" than some of the lower level Martins I tried.

                            To address the "Cons," this guitar doesn't have many! I put the laminate as a con only because I think we could all agree that it's ideal to have a fully solid guitar!

                            The only other thing is the onboard tuner. It's a little slow, but works fairly well. I just opted to by a tuning pedal from Boss. Works great!

                            I would suggest this guitar to anyone. All ages, intermediate beginners to seasoned players. I think this is the kind of instrument that can find its place in anyone's arsenal.
