A truly dynamic large-bodied guitar that delivers a palpable combination of tonal power and presence.
The Breedlove Jumbo advances the capabilities of the largest-bodied guitars and adds substantial, dynamic projection. The mahogany back and sides deliver the midrange warmth and presence coveted by singers, songwriters, balladeers and sound engineers.
The Jumbo is Breedlove's largest body shape by volume. Playing the Jumbo is a powerful experience: sound feels sonically propelled by the movement of so much air inside the body. It's the perfect shape for conveying big, beautiful chords across all six strings - in other words, a strummer's paradise. The Breedlove Jumbo is also an excellent platform for 12-string guitars.
Sitka spruce is grown in the Pacific Northwest, and has been the primary top wood for U.S.A.-built instruments for many decades. It is strong and light with extended harmonic content, and nearly equals the power of Adirondack.
Back and Side Wood
Mahogany is a medium-lightweight wood that provides a balanced, resonant tone with notable sustain. It offers a thick bottom end, a rich midrange, and a controlled warm top end.
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, it's evaluated 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-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 craftsmen often say, "No neck feels better than a Breedlove neck." They may be a bit biased, but industry insiders agree. Their big secret? 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, they perfect the finish by hand-buffing it and rubbing it down to achieve exactly the right thickness for perfect action and playability.
