Herringbone binding, L.R. Baggs electronics, and American spirit built into an amazing OM-sized guitar.
From Breedlove guitars comes a series that is 100% true-red-white-and-blue American. The American guitars are built in Bend, Oregon using quality products made right in the USA—no parts or designs were shipped to other countries. These guitars represent the true American spirit, using quality parts and Breedlove's famous craftsmanship, producing acoustic guitars that will stand the test of time and look absolutely beautiful in the process.
The Breedlove American OM/SRe Herringbone acoustic-electric guitar features an Orchestra Model (OM) shape, with strong lower midranges and versatile dynamics. Built with a smaller length, depth and waist compared to the popular dreadnought body, Breedlove's Orchestral guitar is popular for acoustic and fingerstyle players.
The solid Sitka spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides offer balanced, full-range tone with lots of clear projection. The rosewood fingerboard, and the one-piece mahogany neck produce rich clarity from note to note. The Breedlove American OM/SRe guitar's 25-1/2" scale, 1-3/4" nut width, and 16" radius offer comfort for intricate finger movements, and the gloss finish adds a high-end shine. The bridge truss system stiffens bridge and relaxes soundboard to maximize sustain and resonate freely. The rosewood pinned, winged bridge and scalloped bracing artfully balances string-to-top energy. These design elements yield abundant overtones, complexity, body resonance, and note-for-note swell ideal for creating natural effects, single note complexity, and orchestral chording.
At the heart of the Breedlove American OM/SRe is the L.R. Baggs Element Active VTC Pickups System, letting you amplify your guitar quickly and easily. The Element Active Volume and Tone control (VTC) pairs the Element under-saddle transducer with a pre-contoured all-discrete class-A endpin preamp, and includes a small, soundhole-mounted volume and tone control for added convenience and versatility.
