Excellent big sound in an affordable package

By Seth adkins

from Los Angeles, CA

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

I was very pleased with this purchase. I thought this guitar played better then the Breedlove Atlas series guitars that I played on the same day. But your mileage may vary.
I bought this guitar at a local guitar store. I played most of the Breedloves that were in store and they all honestly sounded dull. So I kept trying out different guitars, but somehow I picked this one up. I was amazed at how big the sound was on the first strum. The sound was very balanced on the highs, mids, and lows. Perfect guitar for recording in my opinion.
Overall the craftsmanship is very good. There are no sloppy frets or anything out of place. I did experience one problem with one of the tuners gears slipping. I contacted Breedlove, and they decided to send me a set of 6 GROVER tuners for free to replace myself. Breedlove's customer service is phenominal.
I think at the pricepoint this is a good value. But keep in mind that there are many other great guitars in this pricepoint too. Mainly the tone and sound and sustain are what sold this guitar for me.

Breedlove at First Sight (and Sound)

By DaverB

from Morgantown, WV

See all my reviews

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

If you need a solid guitar that is very versatile, you need to at least check this out before you pull the trigger on an acoustic-electric. I am very pleased.
Finally got my new C250/CMe and put it through a good test drive. First off, this guitar is solidly built. The fretboard makes for easy fretting, fingerpicking, and runs. The sound is very full and as someone else said, earthy. I have played several Gibsons, Martins, and a couple of Taylors, all great guitars. I just can't imagine any other guitar at this price point that plays and sounds this good. I am 100% sure I made the best choice and look forward to a long LOVE affair with this BREED of a guitar!
Very solidly built. Weight is sound but just right. Onboard lit tuner is great. I haven't payed it amplified yet but I doubt I'll be disappointed.
As said before, best I've played at this and even above this price.

Breedlove A MUST!!!

By That Asian Kid.

from Southern California

See all my reviews

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

I've had this guitar for over 6 months and I LOVE IT!!1) On Board tuner will blow you away it is a digital chromatic tuner,you can literally tune in pitch black and see the things backlight.2) Low action for great hammer ons and pull offs.3) Tone hands down beats the majority of the entry level and middle level Taylors and Martins.4) Sounds Excellent plugged in and it's a great recording guitar.Only advice since your paying $500 is getting a heavy duty case cause the plush one will NOT cut it so protect your investment.Also buying a humidifier is also a MUST!!!Honestly I would pick this guitar over and over again if given the opportunity!!!

A MUST HAVE!

By John Michael

from NJ

See all my reviews

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

This had to be the plainest saddest looking guitar on the wall, smothered amongst high end breedloves, taylors, martins and directly next to a $2200. Gibson Humingbird. Well...! after you pick this guitar up and put it back on the wall you WILL pick it up again and again till you leave with it. IT IS AMAZING! Run through a Marshall acoustic amp it is outstanding. I still intend to purchase a "pro series" Breedlove but the smoothness and richness of this gem can't be argued with. Price does not always constitute tone.

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

I smile every time I play this guitar. I first played it at a guitar shop and did not want to put it down. I am a beginner/intermediate player and I couldn't be happier with the sound, the looks and the price of this guitar. It has a warm vibrant tone. The intonation is near perfect right out of the box. The action works for me and I don't think I will need any further set up on it. Thank you Breedlove!

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.

Wood looks great

Love the look and feel of this guitar.Tuner works great.
Seems very well made and sounds great. Need to change the strings that came with it but still sounds great.
Looked at a lot of guitars for this price and this one seemed to have the best features. Tuning pegs, electronics, very well made.

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

i bought this guitar today, so i cant tell you about how long itll last but, i CAN tell you - i was in the store looking at guitars for awhile, playing everything that caught my eye. i picked this up, completely stomped out the competition... including the more expensive breedlove models. this thing plays SMOOTH, it sounds so warm and creamy.. very earthy. balanced tones... everything you could want in an acoustic. plus a built in tuner? holy moly! awesome. 5 stars across the board from me. DO BUY!

Ask me a question

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

Sure, perhaps not the best AC/with pup on the planet but probably the best in the price range. I have not purchased a new AC guitar in decades and it was time, I wanted and needed a nice player with on board electronics and I didn't want to pay premium price for it as it will eventually be a working guitar. I played every guitar plus or minus a couple hundred and this one stood out. Quite frankly even the next 2 models of Breedlove didn't play any better than this one, they had different wood and appearance. It's kinda plain to look at but it plays great and sounds great, I recorded a quick demo track with both the on board pup and with a condenser and it was apparent I made the right choice. Excellent action and build quality., nice bright sound. If this one got run over I would buy another the same day. !! Enjoy !

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

      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:

      I was looking for an inexpensive guitar that I could use for job where the instrument can get knocked around a bit. This guitar is a great value. It is well made, and really an attractive guitar. Right out of the box I noticed that the action and set up work done in Oregon were great. What a great concept, build in Korea, and then set up and quality control in Oregon. The intonation was true up and down the neck. The onboard tuner is the best I've seen. Very pleased with this guitar.

          This is great guitar. I am an amature guitar player and was looking for something which is not very costly but gives me a movitavation to learn and play guitar. This is just the right thing for me.

          When I played the guitar first time with amp people were looking at me with a happy look. It sounds so great that it feels like you are a great guitarist.

          The cut and the look of the guitar is so nice too. It's a $1000 guitar at a much lower price

          By Nate Thomas

          from Boise, ID

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

          Played almost every mid level acoustic guitar in the place, this was the obvious choice. Came in to the store not expecting to buy, had my eye on a martin and left with this. Pretty comparable to the slightly more expensive martin in brightness, clarity and purity in tone and, actually, a little more resonant i felt. I haven't played it amplified yet so I can't comment there but a very nice back-lit built in tuner.

          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!

          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.
