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 acoustic guitar that will stand the test of time and look absolutely beautiful in the process.
The Breedlove American Tenor OM/SRe, Herringbone acoustic-electric guitar features an Orchestra Model (OM) shape, with clear, full-sounding mids and highs, and versatile dynamics. Built with a smaller length, depth and waist compared to the popular dreadnought body, Breedlove's Orchestral guitar is popular for acoustic and fingerstyle players, especially those who do lots of mid-to-high-range finger movements.
The solid Sitka spruce top and Indian rosewood back and sides of the Breedlove American guitar 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 OM/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. The bridge truss system stiffens the bridge and relaxes the soundboard to maximize sustain and resonate freely. The rosewood pinned, 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.
At the heart of this Breedlove American acoustic 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.
