Demoed 2 of these at a Guitar Center and neither met expectations from reviews. Visited another Guitar Center the following day to demo several other brands. Picked up the only AD20/SM in the store just to be sure I didn't want it and couldn't put it down. Lovely action, great sustain, incredibly warm, balanced sound, superb finish. Wonderful for finger picking. I enjoy it more every day.
Bought this guitar a few months back and haven't put it down since. I went to the store in search of a Martin or Taylor and played a few in the $1200-$2200 range. Upon waiting an answer to knock the price of a Martin SPJC-16 down from $2099 to somewhere in the $1800's I picked up the AD20. I instantly fell in love and knew I wanted this guitar. When the employee came back with an answer of yes to the $1800 on the Martin I told him nevermind. After looking at the $599 price tag for the AD20 I almost fainted. I even got the price down too $450. Best guitar buying experience I have ever had... I went in the store planning on a quality purchase in the lower grands and ended up spending less then half of a grand and IMO got a higher quality guitar.
2 words- WOW. I bought this guitar not really knowing what to expect. This was a recemondation from a friend, and when I played it in the store, I was amazed. It really has a crisp, warm tone that I would've never thought I would find in a guitar for under 700 bucks. Breedlove has really outdone its self with this great sounding yet cheap guitar!
The answer to that is yes and Breedlove has proven it. Most of their guitars are mainly high end for good reasons. Great tonewoods, intricate inlays, aesthetic lines and just a great guitar to even just look at. When you pick one up, that's all many of us can do is just pick it up, pluck it a few times, put it down, sigh the most disappointed sigh ever as we walk away from such a treasure... Until we see the Atlas models wherein our hearts and our wallets cry a joyous shout and we not only pluck it in the store, we take it home and pluck it some more till the strings wear out. Recommend this guitar highly
This is a brilliant guitar with excellent quality of finish and sound. This guitar didn't give any self-assertion while on the wall. However, once I played it, I immediately recognized its well-balanced sound. I like brilliant sound with deep & clear note. I bought mine in Manchester,UK and obviously the price is not so competitive against the one in the US, but I love it!
