From Breedlove guitars comes a dreadnought guitar that is 100% true red-white-and-blue American. Part of the American series, this guitar is built in Bend, Oregon, using quality materials from the USA”no parts or designs were shipped to or from other countries. It represents the true American spirit, using quality parts and Breedlove's famous craftsmanship, producing an acoustic guitar that will stand the test of time and look absolutely beautiful in the process.
The Breedlove American OOO/SRe Herringbone acoustic-electric guitar is built on an OOO body design, a smaller body with plenty of punchy projection. Revered for its tremendous balance from top to bottom, the OOO guitar style was designed particularly for fingerstyle progressions, thanks to its comfortable body shape, and strong projection in the mid and upper-mid range. The Breedlove guitar sounds particularly great in an acoustic setting, paired with a dreadnought, or other accompaniment.
The Breedlove guitar's solid Sitka spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides offer balanced, full-range tone with lots of clear projection. The ebony fingerboard, and the one-piece mahogany neck produce rich clarity from note to note. The Breedlove OOO/SRe 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. 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.
At the heart of the Breedlove American OOO/SRe guitar is the L.R. Baggs Element Active VTC pickups system, letting you amplify your guitar quickly and easily. The Element Active Volume and Tone control (VTC) pairs the Element under-saddle transducer with a pre-contoured all-discrete class-A endpin preamp, and includes a small, removable soundhole-mounted volume and tone control for added convenience and versatility. The entire system is designed to install easily and features plug-and-play performance.
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 OOO/SRe Herringbone acoustic-electric guitar include black body binding with herringbone top purfling, American abalone rosette, single-action soundhole adjustable truss rod, advanced and scalloped "Pre-War" X-bracing, pearl dot position markers, ivoroid heel cap, and Grover vintage-style open-back tuners.
