Overview

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 materials from 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 superb craftsmanship, producing acoustic guitars that will stand the test of time and look absolutely beautiful in the process.

Built on the popular dreadnought platform, the D20/SM acoustic guitar's large top and body depth creates a resonant chamber that focuses on bass response and tremendous volume. This design is ideal for ensemble playing and is the guitar of choice for flatpick guitarists.

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 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 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 on the Breedlove American acoustic guitar include black body binding with herringbone top purfling, Breedlove abalone rosette, 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.

The Breedlove American D20/SM acoustic guitar includes the Breedlove lifetime warranty and a deluxe 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.

Amazing guitar at any price!

Comments about Breedlove American Series D20/SM Acoustic Guitar:

I've owned this guitar for almost a year now and still can't seem to put it down. At the time of purchase, I tried guitars that were 2-3x more and this was the best one in the room. This guitar plays great and tonally it makes for a nice blend of M-style woodiness and T-style refinement. Another selling point for me was it's all solid construction and the fact they use traditional woods. I was also shocked at how light and resonant this guitar is... it seems to sustain forever.

Comments about Breedlove American Series D20/SM Acoustic Guitar:

Great workmanship. This is a fantastic value for an all solid wood, american made insturment. Exceeded my expectations in sound, playability and fit and finish. This is a loud guitar. Custom shop quality, fast playing neck and did I mention the sound? I purchased this as a beater for my custom Taylor and gravitate to this much more. Very impressed, I ordered a 12 fret American Series.
