OVERVIEW

The Breedlove Black Magic Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar is elegant, visually stunning and sonically rich. It's slightly more rounded than traditional dreadnoughts, producing beautifully full, punchy, and articulate tones. This dreadnought appeals to players inspired by the familiarity of a dreadnought, who are looking for nuance and richness from their instrument. The Breedlove Dreadnought projects well, so it excels in an ensemble, and yet retains the refinement needed for vocal accompaniment.

Top
Sitka spruce is grown in the northwest, and has been the primary top wood for U.S.A. instruments for many decades. It is strong, light, and gives extended harmonic content and nearly equals the power of Adirondack.

Back and Sides
Sapele is similar both visually and tonally to dense mahogany, but both darker and harder, giving it a strong visual presence and a bit more upper harmonic content and low-end clarity. It's a good choice for many sizes and shapes, and works well for strumming and fingerstyle.

Hand-Crafted Neck
A satin-finished nato mahogany neck with volute makes the neck comfortable and easy to play. The volute adds strength to the break angle of the headstock. It also acts as a thumbrest for chords played in open and first positions.

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 top, providing for greater sustain and balance, more expression from the instrument, and greater structural integrity all while adding longevity to the instrument.

Electronics
The L.R. Baggs Element pickup and the Breedlove LR-TCV preamp give you great plugged-in sound. The backlit, colored LED tuner also allows you to see if you're in tune on a dark stage. This setup lets you play with confidence, so you can focus on your performance.

Aesthetic Appointments
Elegant appointments include a lustrous gloss black finish, abalone top purfling, stage diamond inlays and ivoroid binding.

Set-up and Quality Assurance in Bend, Oregon USA
A comprehensive quality control process provides the player with an instrument that will play great right out of the box. Prior to shipment, every Breedlove instrument undergoes a rigorous multi-point inspection in Bend, Oregon by their expert U.S. Quality Control Team.

    Comments about Breedlove Stage Dreadnought Black Magic Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Love the guitar, I suspicion that the neck is fiberglass,something besides wood. But this is wonderful, u get resonance clear up to the head stock. Wonderful resonance completely thru the guitar, and u will probably never have to adjust the neck. The tone is spot on, and finishing is pro. Great workhorse for any level of proficiency. In home u will never need the amplifier, but u have the option.

        Comments about Breedlove Stage Dreadnought Black Magic Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        OK so I love this guitar. There is a smoothness in the playing and a richness in the sound. I have an Ovation that is as easy to play , but it doesn't have the full sound that this has. It's a full level above my Takamine, and I preferred it in an afternoon of trying out Martins and Taylors. OK so I love this guitar........

          Comments about Breedlove Stage Dreadnought Black Magic Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I bought this guitar based on the price and the quality of materials used. With that, I am very happy with this guitar. The sound is amazing and the matted neck feel is very smooth.

          Props to Musicians Friend for helping me out when the first one I ordered had finishing flaws. (Looked like someone forgot to buff the paint and then cleared over it). I called MF and they were very easy to work with and shipped me another one right away. The next one i received was great and did not have any finish issues.

          The gig bag is very nicely padded and easy to transport.

          Electronics are sweet, best tuning system I've ever used and looks great.

          Pinless bridge is very comfortable on your Rt hand for strumming.

          You will want to have some guitar cleaner and a nice cloth since the black shows every fingerprint.

          Overall I am happy with this guitar and would recommend it to anyone looking for a black guitar.

                  Second Breedlove Acoustic that I have owned! The first one was a Semi-Custom(now 20+ years old). This one is equally as great a guitar. Impeccable finish, playability, fully voiced sound projection plugged or unplugged! Was set up right out of the box and stays in tune regardless of fingerpicking or strumming during long sessions. I couldn't be more pleased with this beautiful instrument.

                    This guitar feels and plays much better than expected for the price. It's true that the volume seems to resonate farther from the player. Great for entertaining others. So glad to get the opportunity to get one.
