Full-bodied and no cutaway for a big sound.
The Breedlove Jumbo advances the capabilities of the largest bodies from the golden era of guitar building. The Premier Jumbo provides substantial, dynamic projection, and the rosewood back and sides deliver balance and clarity beyond the low end.
The Breedlove Jumbo is Breedlove’s largest body shape by volume. Playing the Jumbo is a powerful experience: Sound feels sonically propelled by the movement of so much air inside the body. It's the perfect shape for conveying big, beautiful chords across all six strings a strummer's paradise.
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
Indian rosewood has been the standard rosewood choice for decades. It is often associated with the great dreadnoughts, and is an amazingly neutral wood. It is good for many styles and takes its personality from the player. Well-balanced lows, mids, and highs make it a natural for many styles.
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 they've selected the perfect top wood for a specific instrument, they evaluate 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 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, the finish is perfected by hand-buffing it and rubbing it down to achieve exactly the right thickness for perfect action and playability.
