      Breedlove Studio 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar (109454173)
Availability:  


Comfortable neck profile and body shape for easy play.

For the player seeking clear, concise, note-for-note 12-string articulation – the Breedlove Studio 12-String is a serious acoustic-electric optimized for songwriting, recording and live performance. Its comfortable neck profile and the Concert body make this 12-string easy to play for long sessions. Breedlove's pinless bridge makes string changes quick, easy and painless.

It also features the Breedlove Bridge Truss that relieves stress on the guitar's top from the extra tension of 12 strings, and yields extra sustain and balance. When you need to plug in, the onboard L.R. Baggs TCV preamp provides you with extra volume control, a 3-band EQ, presence control (fader), phase inversion, and an integrated tuner.

  • Needs better Quality Control

    As reviewed by Ian on 8/12/2014

    I purchased one of these Breedlove Studio 12's locally from a Guitar Center store in April 2014. It's now four months later, and Guitar Center took it back and I'm awaiting my replacement - an Ovation Elite 12. Preface: Guitar Center has given me EXCELLENT customer service concerning this guitar. First, the good: The guitar sounds amazing. Another reviewer on another website noted "piano-like tone" from the low end. That's a great description. The guitar also looks fantastic. Modern, sleek, and exudes quality. The included semi-rigid gig bag is also nice, and offers plenty of protection for around-town transportation. The built-in tuner is also excellent. Sometimes built-ins just don't work accurately, especially on 12-string guitars, but this one is very accurate (when the strings aren't binding - more on that later) and easy-to-read. Fit and finish look top-notch (though I did notice two pin-sized blemishes on the top side of mine - looked like little white dots under the clear). Unfortunately, I had too many issues to continue owning the Breedlove. First, just a few days after purchase, I went to change strings and noticed a crack in the finish along the "book match" line, extending from the bridge to the sound hole. May have been there when I bought it, but still; not acceptable for a brand-new $900 guitar. I called the Guitar Center store, and they agreed to replace the guitar sight-unseen. I MUST credit the customer service at GC again - they have been fantastic through this whole thing. Anyway, a few days later, the new one came in, and I made the swap. The second guitar did not have the same sparkle and definition when plugged in. There was clearly something different with the pickup. The high-E string was almost inaudible at times, and playing live (I play 4 to 6 gigs a week), the guitar would feed back. Never a problem with the first one. I figured I would work on it and kept playing gigs, but nothing I did could remedy the issues. A feedback stopper sound hole cover solved the feedback problem, but the pickup just never sounded right. Breedlove was nice to talk to, but I can't send my tools away for 3 weeks to be worked on all the time. The strings were also VERY tight in the nut, and it caused tuning issues. They would bind up in the slots and tuning was not smooth at all. The last straw was when the fret wire started to lift off the fingerboard off the fingerboard at the very last fret. I was playing a gig and the high-E string(s) suddenly kept getting wedged under the lifted fret. Upon further inspection, the center of the next TWO frets were also lifting (the sales associate at Guitar Center actually noticed that - good eye!). Extremely disturbing to see on an instrument in this price range that is only 4 months old. That was the end. Again in a show of GREAT customer service, Guitar Center took the guitar back for full credit. I never had any intentions of taking my money elsewhere; I just needed to get out of the Breedlove brand and buy something else. The USA-made Breedloves are considered a high-end instrument, comparable to Taylor, Martin, etc. Perhaps they are better made. From what I know, the Korean made, lower priced models are still set up and QC'd in the USA, but maybe more attention needs to be paid. I won't be buying another Breedlove; at least, not a foreign-made model. **It should also be noted that this guitar WILL give your hands a workout. Many 12-string guitars have a slightly shorter scale (Takamine is 25", Ovation 25.25", etc.) to reduce the string tension a bit. The Breedlove is a full on 25.5" scale, and while it plays nicely and the action is superb, it still requires a strong fretting hand, especially for stretches, etc. Having gigged with a Takamine 12-string for 8+ years (and an Ovation 12 before that), the extra string tension is something I noticed immediately.
