Medium size with a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides.
Traditional in both design and aesthetic, the Breedlove Revival Series OM/AM Deluxe Acoustic Guitar captures the essence of legendary “pre-war” guitars. Breedlove Craftsmanship in an American made, hand built guitar that represents a benchmark for performance and value. Breedlove Revival acoustic guitars feature forward X bracing, and a graduated top thickness. Revival tops are thicker in the middle and thinner toward the perimeter, delivering a tone that is powerful and explosive, and also very balanced. The Adirondack Spruce top with Adirondack Spruce bracing responds well to powerful strumming while the Mahogany back and sides allow for a pronounced mid-range tone. The OM body style fits comfortably for all shapes and sizes of people, while the semi-gloss neck and the 1 3/4" nut width allow for an ease of playability up and down the fretboard.
Enjoy the beauty and sound of this sweet guitar from our friends in Oregon. Order today.

Comments about Breedlove Revival Series OM/AM Deluxe Acoustic Guitar:
This instrument arrived differently than described/pictured. The headstock is just as the Voice Revival Series models, and not as pictured: squared. It had no pickguard, which actually pleased me.
This guitar is featherweight, lighter than a bottle of wine. Construction was immaculate. The top is adirondack, a wood having the highest weight to strength ratio. The tuner/nut combination was a suprise, as I wrenched on the instrument for over an hour only adjusting it slightly a few times. It preformed well on ever string and area of the fretboard except above the 13 fret. I just can't get it to sing like my Taylor 810 in the very upper frets.
Tone. It is a pecular critter. In a nutshell it is the Telecaster of acoustic world. The midrange is quite exagerated. The low end takes a second chair. Each note in a triad, dyad, or chord is very distinct. It is very responsive in voicing single lines, almost unforgiving to nuace. This OM is not as loud as dreadnaughts in this price range, but the accentuated midrange allows it to cut through and stand in the front. It is professional instrument and like any good acoustic you can hear a myriad of overtones and sympathetic string vibration swelling about inside and above the the sound hole.
All in all, what is most striking about this plain looking little dwarf is: It is so unassuming. Sorta like a little Bruce Lee in a WWE ring. Oh! the case came with a 1/2 inch tear in it, but who cares. Thats what they're made for, abuse.
