Overview

The Breedlove American Series C25/SRe Acoustic-Electric Guitar is a 100% true-red-white-and-blue American guitar. American Series guitars are built in Bend, Oregon, using quality components made right in the USA”no parts or designs were shipped to other countries.

Built for center-stage, the Breedlove American C25/SRe acoustic-electric guitar's body is designed to minimize overtones during a performance. The body width and depth produce balanced tone, but do so without the boomy bass or reverberation of a traditional Concert guitar. The impressive balance and projection are substantial musical features on this beauty. Because of these qualities, the Breedlove American guitar concert body lends itself perfectly for fingerpicking, while still sounding great for playing in any style.

The guitar's solid Sitka spruce top, solid Indian rosewood back, and sides offer a balanced midrange with lots of bold projection. The soft cutaway adds comfort for accessing the upper frets. The guitar's Ebony fingerboard, and Bolt-on neck joint produce rich clarity from note to note.

At the heart of the Breedlove American acoustic-electric guitar is the L.R. Baggs Element Pickup Active System w/volume and tone control, letting you amplify your guitar quickly and easily.

All Breedlove Custom Shop steel-string guitars (except for the Revival Series), American 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 potential of the acoustic guitar's 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 and neck binding, abalone rosette, double-action soundhole adjustable truss rod, abalone rosette with purfling ring, abalone top purfling with BWBWB purfling, Breedlove Dots inlay pattern by Kim Breedlove, glossy finish, satin neck ebony bridge, ebony fretboard, and rosewood headstock overlay, compensated saddle, and Gotoh Chrome 381 Tuners.

The Breedlove American C25/SRe acoustic-electric guitar includes the Breedlove lifetime warranty and a Breedlove logo hardshell case, so you can keep your 6-string guitar looking as gorgeous as the day you bought it. Make that day today and order now.

Breedlove American Series guitars represent the true American spirit, using quality parts and Breedlove's famous craftsmanship to produce guitars that will stand the test of time and look absolutely beautiful in the process.

Amazing guitar; absolutely stunning!

By Tyson

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Breedlove American Series C25/SRe, Ab Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar this past fall and have never regretted my decision. I bought the American series C25/Sre Ab limited edition guitar #4 of 50, so I know that the guitars in this series are incredible. I walked into GC and played for hours testing all of the different guitars from Taylors and Martins to upper class Lerrivees and every time I came back to this Breedlove, it was simply no comparison. I do not remember the model number but I played a 3,000 dollar Taylor and found that this Breedlove sounded better in my opinion. I had two guitarists with me to help me with my purchase and they agreed it sounded better. The lows in this solid wood guitar are amazing, but it is an even tone with the highs. I could write all day I am sure, but the short and long of it is that it is worth every penny and I will probably never get another guitar. In fact, I walked into GC the other day to kill time and when I went into the acoustic room I actually felt bored. I said to myself, I have no need to be in here! Who would have thought I would have ever said anything like that? Great guitar!

This is a Guitar!!!!!

By Inwon Kim

from Washington DC

Comments about Breedlove American Series C25/SRe, Ab Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought it from off-line guitar center in DC. My guitar is a limited edition. I like the sound of Taylor but the price of Taylor is too high for me. When I visited guitar center, I played all of famous guitars. I want to buy Taylor 814ce but it�ۡ���s too expensive. At that moment, I found Breedlove and I tested it. This is it!!!! It is just perfect. Beautiful body line, clear high tone, long sustain�ۡ��_ I usually play finger style and this guitar fits my style nicely!! I highly recommend this guitar. I love it!

Write-up does Breedlove American series a disservice!

By Pat Marino

from Fairfax, VA

Comments about Breedlove American Series C25/SRe, Ab Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar is amazing! Period. It is a Limited Edition instrument 100% made in America. Like the previous poster stated, this guitar DOES NOT have laminated sides. It is beautiful gloss redwood. I contacted Breedlove about the incorrect description and they did say they would try to correct the mistake. In this price range, what is there to compare it with? I A-B with a Taylor 414 and the Breelove won. I own a 000C-16RGTE Martin Aura, Spruce Top and Redwood sides and back and I still bought the C25, SRe, Ab. Nothing compares, it is a beautiful looking and sounding instrument.

Solid Wood Guitar

By Garth Osborn

from Bend, OR

Comments about Breedlove American Series C25/SRe, Ab Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I want to clear up confusion about this fine guitar. All woods used in construction of Breedlove American Series instruments are solid woods, including top, back, and sides. Guitar Center's description of this instrument as having laminated rosewood sides is not correct. Breedlove Atlas Series guitars have laminated sides, but solid wood tops and backs. I hope this clears up any confusion.
