    Designed for ultimate portability without tonal or budget sacrifice.

    Breedlove is known for its dynamic and expressive 12 strings, and now, with the Passport C250/SMe-12 acoustic-electric guitar, they offer one for an entry-level price. Inspired by the Breedlove Custom Shop concert shape and voice, it features amazing tone, sustain, and complexity in each note.

    A solid Sitka spruce top and beautiful mahogany back and sides generate a warm tone with good projection and string-by-string clarity. 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. A 9-volt battery is easily accessed near the endpin area.

    Includes gig bag.

        Comments about Breedlove Passport C250/SMe-12 Acoustic-Electric 12-String Guitar:

        Was on close out here at MF at about 65% off and couldn't resist. I had bought an Atlas series 6 string about 3 weeks before that was a STUPID DEAL and love that guitar. After some research, I figured that the build of these two guitars, even thought they are different line, are the same except for some visuals and the preamp and I was right. Unreal guitar for the money, I play it everyday and am amazed at the quality. I showed several friends my Breedloves and they all went and bought them especially because of the closeout deals.

        You can't buy this guitar anymore unless you find it used and with that I'd recommend it. This guitar was made in Korea and those guys can build, but the new lines are coming out of China and I haven't played one of those.

        Comments about Breedlove Passport C250/SMe-12 Acoustic-Electric 12-String Guitar:

        Very Nice Guitar! I've been playing a 12 string acoustic for over 45 years. I was amazed when I first saw it in the box! Then I pulled it out of the packaging all excited and it tuned right up so very easily! The way it feels and sounds compares to some of the more expensive top of the line models that I had been considering on MF. The feel, tone, sustain, and quality craftsmanship meet all my expectations and put aside any fears I had ordering online without personally holding it in a shop first! Beautiful job on the detail aspects. Oval nut and tail, string to fret conformity. Excellent octaves, a quite comfortable action! I was nervous at first and wasn't expecting this good of quality overall but the Gig-Bag and on-board tuner was just the icing on the cake for me. I'm plugging it in TODAY! I'm still just amazed by the acoustics! The wait was well worth it!

        Comments about Breedlove Passport C250/SMe-12 Acoustic-Electric 12-String Guitar:

        I bought this as a "Hot Deal". It was probably a hot deal because it has been discontinued. (So I was told by customer service). WHY is this model ending? It is an incredible instrument and a wonderful value. Even at regular price. This gorgeously crafted 12 string bopped around in a series of delivery vehicles and arrived at my home in PERFECT tune. All twelve. And the sound. Glorious. It was packed with care with an actually useful gig bag and provided in a timely and reliable manner by Musician's Friend, as usual. Get one of these NOW, while you can.

            Comments about Breedlove Passport C250/SMe-12 Acoustic-Electric 12-String Guitar:

            Nice...an avid 12 string player of 40 plus yrs.
            My concern with the Tail twisting over the long
            haul, seem's relieved. You all get a "YES"....
            Fell in love...1st sight, out of box, in hand.
            Feel, tone, sustain, quality, far....far, better than imagined. I will be lowering the action a bit
            at the tail about 010. I'm just really fussy!
            Beautiful job on the detail aspects. Oval nut and tail, string to fret conformity. Precise octives, very comfortable action, whole new ballfield in the cutaway area.
            Wasn't expecting the quality within and of the Gig-Bag in itself, seen and used many.
            The onboard tuner, is a little icing on the cake.
            At this time all is far beyond expectation. Have yet to plug it in, I'm still too overwhelmed by the accoustic's. It could be set with the best.
