This new body shape is exclusively Breedlove. It has the pronounced waist and thinner body for playing comfort. With their Sound Optimization technology applied to the power of the all myrtlewood body, Breedlove have designed a delightful small body instrument that's a joy to play and will make your music sound fantastic.
Oregon Sitka - Myrtlewood Series By far the most commonly used top wood, Sitka spruce has an exceptional strength to weight ratio. Growing in southeast Alaska’s temperate rainforest, it grows less than six inches a year, fighting its way through the dense old-growth forests.
Growing straight and up to 300 feet tall, the age of the trees used by Breedlove are 4-600 years old. They never harvest one of these magnificent trees, but work with Alaska Specialty Woods to salvage blown down, dead trees from the forest floor.
Coupling old-growth Sitka with the beautiful Myrtlewood results in instruments that have far surpassed traditional guitars in sound. Hand-Crafted in Bend, Oregon. Each Oregon is factory equipped with LR Baggs EAS VTC electronics and comes with a deluxe Breedlove hardshell case. You will sound better, play better and play more on a Breedlove.
