Breedlove is known for many things. For starters, it was founded by a pair of Taylor alumni - Larry Breedlove and Steve Henderson - who wanted to focus on building custom fingerstyle guitars. It's also a luthier that keeps Mother Nature in mind, sourcing all its woods sustainably. And of course, Breedlove is well-known for the wide variety of instruments they produce, ranging from 6 to 12-string guitars as well as 4-string acoustic bass guitars. Every one of their product lines has a special defining feature, and the Breedlove Solo series is no exception: these instruments are designed from the ground up for the solo artist looking for the most personal playing experience possible.
How does Breedlove deliver on that goal, you may ask? The biggest way is the addition of a special side monitor soundhole that directs sound right to your ears as you play. This way, you can hear the guitar as the audience would hear it, giving you a better perspective on your music when writing, rehearsing and performing songs. These instruments also feature L.R. Baggs quartz piezo pickups, delivering plugged-in performance that's capable enough to handle whatever you throw at it, whether you're a brand-new beginner or an experienced performer.
No matter what sort of guitarist or bassist you are, there's a Breedlove Solo instrument for you. For instance, if you're looking for an acoustic bass, you have your choice of fretted with the Breedlove Solo Bass Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar, or fretless with the Breedlove Solo Bass Fretless Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar. Check out the Breedlove Solo Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar and the Breedlove Solo Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar if you prefer 6 strings. Or how about 12? There's the Breedlove Solo Concert 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar for that. Southpaw? Try the Breedlove Solo Concert Left Handed Acoustic-Electric Guitar. With options like these, it's no surprise that so many of the guitars in the Breedlove Solo series come with top ratings and best-seller status... maybe it's time for you to find out firsthand what all the fanfare is about?
