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 materials from the USA”no parts or designs were shipped to or from 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 and sound absolutely beautiful in the process.
The American Series OM/SM acoustic guitar features an Orchestra Model (OM) shape, with strong lower midranges and versatile dynamics. Built with a smaller length, depth, and waist compared to the popular dreadnought body, this Breedlove guitar is popular for acoustic and fingerstyle players.
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 OM/SM acoustic 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 "belly" bridge and scalloped "Pre-War" X-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 guitar include black body binding, American abalone rosette, single-action soundhole adjustable truss rod, one-piece mahogany neck, pearl dot position markers, and Gotoh vintage style open-back tuners.
