Breedlove

Exquisite playability, balance and sustain in a Sitka spruce and Indian rosewood body.

Breedlove is regarded as one of the finest 12-string guitar makers in the world and the Premier 12 String is no exception. Built for live performance, the string-tension balancing of the Breedlove Bridge Truss combined with East Indian rosewood deliver resonant and expressive note-for-note clarity—including the chime of the octave strings.

Body
The Breedlove Auditorium is the sonic mid-point between the Concert and Jumbo body shapes. Its depth and lower bout combined with its upper body cutaway produce the articulation of the Concert, with tonal depth reminiscent of the larger-bodied Jumbo. An extremely versatile instrument, the Auditorium casts a nod into dreadnought territory while also accommodating alternate tunings, fingerstyle and bold strumming. These characteristics make the Auditorium an outstanding platform for Breedlove 12-string guitars as well.

Top Wood
Sitka spruce is grown in the Pacific Northwest, and has been the primary top wood for USA-made instruments for many decades. It is strong and light with extended harmonic content, and nearly equals the power of Adirondack.

Back and Side Wood
Indian rosewood has been the standard rosewood choice for decades. It is often associated with the great dreadnoughts, and is an amazingly neutral wood that takes its personality from the player. Well-balanced lows, mids, and highs make it a natural for many styles.

Graduated Top
Because no two tops are exactly the same, Breedlove's graduation process allows them to get the most response from the guitar's top while retaining structural integrity. Once they've selected the perfect top wood for a specific instrument, they evaluate each and every top for flexibility, and then graduate each piece of wood, so it is slightly thinner on the bass side. The amount of graduation is customized for each individual instrument, dependent on the relative stiffness of the top. This process essentially makes every Breedlove a one-of-a-kind. Knowing your Breedlove was built with this intentional care and discernment, you can rest assured that the instrument is performing at its highest potential, and focus on what you do best: creating, expressing, and getting the most out of your music.

Breedlove Bridge Truss
For centuries, one of the most difficult components of crafting guitars has been relieving the stress on the bridge without overbuilding the top and dampening sound. Originally invented over 20 years ago, the Breedlove Bridge Truss is still one of the most innovative truss systems on the market today. Refined and improved over the years, the Breedlove Bridge Truss relieves stress on the top, allowing use of a thinner, graduated top, providing for greater sustain and balance, more expression from the instrument, and greater structural integrity all while adding longevity to the instrument.

Neck
Breedlove's secret to great neck feel is hands-on sculpting. After basic machining, each Breedlove neck goes through a comprehensive, build and finish process, starting with the hand shaping of each and every neck. Next, the perfectly sculpted neck heads into the finish process where it receives a wash coat and sealer. Then, over a three-day period, multiple finish coats are applied, and the neck is level sanded. In the final stage, the finish is perfected by hand-buffing it and rubbing it down to achieve exactly the right thickness for perfect action and playability.

Limited Lifetime Warranty
Breedlove players around the world can attest: With consistent, proper care, your Breedlove will give you a lifetime of service and inspiration. New Breedlove instruments are warranted to be free of defects in materials and workmanship throughout the lifetime of the original owner. In addition to materials and workmanship, Breedlove offers a 2-year warranty on tuning machines and electronics packages.

Deluxe hardshell case included.
