Mesmerizing to behold and rich in tone.

Fully articulating the sound spectrum across lows, mids, and highs is a difficult task for any acoustic instrument. After years of acoustic research, Breedlove offers the Legacy Auditorium to do just that. Breedlove's original Auditorium shape is combined with myrtlewood back and sides and a Sitka spruce top to offer bold projection with even sustain and balance across the entire tonal spectrum.

The Breedlove Auditorium is the sonic mid-point between Breedlove's 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 U.S.A. instruments for many decades. It is strong and light with extended harmonic content, and nearly equals the power of Adirondack.

Back and Side Wood
Myrtlewood offers a strong fundamental with a powerful voice. A favorite for many styles of playing, it is clear and bright with superb projection and sustain, and offers a full and balanced sound.

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 the perfect top wood for a specific instrument is selected, Breedlove evaluates 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-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.

Breedlove craftsmen often say, "No neck feels better than a Breedlove neck." They may be a bit biased, but industry insiders agree. Here's Breedlove's 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, Breedlove perfects the finish 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, purchased through an authorized Breedlove dealer, are warranted to be free of defects in materials and workmanship throughout the lifetime of the original owner.

Comments about Breedlove Legacy Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Having spent some quality time with my new Breedlove Legacy Auditorium here is my one word summary ..... OUTSTANDING!!

The guitar has a beautifully clear voice in all registers. The intonation is very rich - not uber bright up high and not muddy in mids or lows. Individual notes are clear with excellent sustain. The instrument's voice is beautifully blended with Travis picking. When I hit clean hammer ons the intonation is spot on (I need more time back in the saddle to make this consistent).

Volume is suprisingly pronounced while finger picking and easily fills the room when strummed with, or without, a pick. While I'm not agressive in strumming, a firm hand does not result in fret buzzing. Also, the action and playability are excellent. After 30 minutes of playing on my first day back after a 15 year hiatus my fingers didn't hurt and I had no hand fatigue.

Asthetically, it is a lovely instrument. The solid sitka spruce top and solid myrtlewood back / sides are stunning together.
