From Breedlove guitars comes a series that is 100% true-red-white-and-blue American. The American series 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 instruments that will stand the test of time and look absolutely beautiful in the process.
Built for center-stage, the concert body on this Breedlove American Series C20/SR Acoustic Guitar is designed to minimize overtones during a performance. The thinner, longer bass side helps long bass wavelengths fully resonate. The thicker, shorter treble side helps resonate high frequencies, especially on this cutaway model. The impressive balance and projection are substantial musical features on this beauty. Because of these qualities, the concert body lends itself perfectly for fingerpicking, while still sounding great for playing in any style.
The solid Sitka spruce top and rosewood back and sides offer a balanced tonal range with lots of bold projection. The soft cutaway adds comfort for accessing the upper frets. The ebony fingerboard, and the one-piece mahogany neck produce rich clarity from note to note. The C20/SR'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. Pinless, 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.
All Breedlove Custom Shop steel-string guitars (except for the Revival Series), Pro Series and Atlas Series guitars use the JLD Bridge Truss system. This device is a cantilevered truss that helps to counterbalance string tension at the bridge, creating a relaxed top and improved structural integrity. This allows the tops to be braced in a very progressive way, with a focus on realizing the full acoustic potential of the top. A relaxed top provides maximal wavelength response and a synergy is created by use of a graduated top thickness, balanced scalloped bracing, and a pinless bridge in combination with the bridge truss system. This gives Breedlove guitars the distinctive and highly dynamic "Breedlove Sound", with a piano-like bass and a remarkably well-balanced tone suitable for a broad variety of musical styles.
Other appointments include ivoroid body binding, single-action soundhole adjustable truss rod, ebony pinless "winged" bridge with J.L.D. bridge truss system, scalloped bracing, one-piece mahogany neck, Breedlove pearl dot position markers, ivoroid heel cap, asymmetrical Breedlove headstock with ebony overlay, and Gotoh 381 tuners.
