    Breedlove Solo Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar (with Case) Product Description

    Breedlove Solo Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar: For the singer-songwriter recording artist, designed to give a whole new perspective on sound, projecting sonic subtleties directly to the player's ears. Crafted to help players accurately hear their instrument when playing, the Breedlove Solo Dreadnought acoustic-electric is optimized for solo songwriting, but also capably handles recording and performance. The solid Sitka spruce top is paired with an extra-deep sapele body to generate bright and clearly articulated single notes. The Breedlove Monitor side sound hole projects sound directly toward the ear, allowing guitarists to hear their performance with an entirely new dimension of clarity and detail. The Solo Concert includes a proprietary LR-TCV preamp with an LR Baggs Element pickup, a 3-band EQ, presence, phase, and a stealthy chromatic tuner.

    Body Shape

    The Breedlove Dreadnought is slightly more rounded than traditional dreadnoughts, producing beautifully full, punchy, and articulate tones. The 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 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 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 thumb rest for chords played in open and first positions.

    Electronics

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

    Aesthetic Appointments

    Lustrous full-gloss finish, a beautiful single-ring abalone rosette, offset position markers and attractive black binding give a rich, upscale appearance.

    Set-Up and Quality Assurance in Bend, Oregon USA

    Our 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 our expert U.S. Quality Control Team. We start with a visual inspection: checking aesthetic and structural elements of the body, and all components, for flaws. Next, each guitar is tuned and undergoes a play test, where our craftspeople check nut height, relief, action, and string height. Based on the results of the play test, we then adjust for maximum playability. Next, each instrument is buffed and polished by hand with painstaking attention to detail. Once the instrument has passed inspection, a signed QC sticker is placed, and the instrument is carefully packed and shipped.

    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. In addition to materials and workmanship, Breedlove offers a two-year warranty on tuning machines and electronics packages. Cases and bags are subject to a one-year warranty covering defects in structure and hardware.
