    Comments about Breedlove Atlas Series Studio C250/SMe-12 12-String Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I normally don't buy guitars without playing them first. I ordered this one because of the price and I was looking for a 12 string. What a nice surprise...plays well right from the box and sustain...crazy....I've ordered a lot from musicians friend and always have been satisfied and this was no exception. I was looking at a similar priced taylor or a less fender but this beat both for the price. Case is well built and solid. This was a stupid deal of the day

    All you could ask for

    By Sidgr

    from Wyoming Unfortuanly

    Comments about Breedlove Atlas Series Studio C250/SMe-12 12-String Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    My first guitar was beat up Ukrainian 12 string i found in someones trash. I played that thing til the sun rose, and it destroyed my fingers, I did not know any better, and well how would I i was 11. I eventually got a guitar for Christmas, but it was just a regular ol' 6 string. It just did not have that sound that i was so used to with my old guitar. So when I came into money I went to a guitar store looking for my guitar for life. I was glad to say that I found this beauty. I was nearly 100 times easier to play than either of my other guitars or any I had played previously, and this was a full 12 string. It was love at first play, it felt natural to play, and i have had it for three years, and to date is still the best guitar I have ever played.

    Blindfaith paid off!!

    By MIGUEL CASTELLANOS

    from Mason, Ohio

    Comments about Breedlove Atlas Series Studio C250/SMe-12 12-String Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Played a bit after tuning it and I realized that the sound was very different and I was not comfortable at first with it. Then I remember a reviewer saying that this guitar is not as loud as bigger ones and that is great for fingerpicking. So, I decided to try different styles of playing and I found out that this is a sophisticated Lady and has to be played softly and delicately. What a sound when you play it like that!! When I plugged it into my Roland AC-60, muses and sirens came out from it!! What a sound!!! Out of all my guitars, this is the only one that sounds better plugged in than unplugged!! Not that it sounds bad unplugged; it does sound great!! The electronics in it are superb! The only problem I had was with the case; the little ear that you pull to open the interior compartment broke; a phone call to Breedlove and the wonderful lady on the phone arranged for me to get a brand new replacement case in no time. I am a Breedlove aficionado forever!!!

    New EQ

    By Randy Yevick

    from Hampton, Ga

    Comments about Breedlove Atlas Series Studio C250/SMe-12 12-String Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    As I mentioned I bought my Breedlove about 2 weeks ago and it had just come in and had to unbox it in the store... obviously straight from Breedlove and it has a much nicer eq panel than the one shown here... it has a presence setting as well... and maybe more (it's not near me at the moment) but try to look for that version if possible.

    Comments about Breedlove Atlas Series Studio C250/SMe-12 12-String Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I picked this guitar up in Atlanta yesterday before it ever was put out to display, straight out of the box. It is really amazing in all regards. I am SO glad I bought this one over the Takimine I was looking at. Plays great, looks great, sounds great and it comes with an awesome Breedlove hard case... very nice.

    great for non pro player

    By Tom Greb

    from North Little Rock Arkansas

    Comments about Breedlove Atlas Series Studio C250/SMe-12 12-String Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I play mainly for myself I am not a professional player.I alwats wanted a 12 string but nevr found one that was comfortable . The counterman asked me did you see the breedlove 12 ? I had no clue this brand existed.I immediatly fell in love with this guitar. It has a clear and crisp sound and the neck is so comfortable you can play for hours without fingers getting too sore. If you are like me and want a 12 to play and not cost a fortune this is the guitar for you!

    Awesome!

    Comments about Breedlove Atlas Series Studio C250/SMe-12 12-String Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I purchased the Breedlove Atlas 12 string used from MF. I was concerned about buying a used 12 string online due to the possibility of damage to the neck from a prior owner.When the guitar arrived I was amazed, it is like brand new, couldnt find a single scratch or anything to call it "used".As for the guitar, it is not a very loud guitar but it sounds so good I am not concerned that it is not as loud as my Tacoma Dreadnoughts. The lows are very pleasing, the highs are shimmering, and best of all the mids are not overpowering.Action and playability is INCREDIBLE!! This guitar frets amazingly easy for a 12 string.BUY IT!

    Great Fingerpicker!

    By Dwight Altenhoff

    from Lewisville, Texas

    Comments about Breedlove Atlas Series Studio C250/SMe-12 12-String Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Of all the 12 stringers I tried in my budget, this was easily the most playable for me. The reason is that there is more room between the string pairs, so I can get my stubby fingertips in between to play. Fingerpicking some 12's feels like trying to play tree bark. Not this one. I've had mine for 3 years & the action is EXACTLY where it was when I bought it, probably because of the JDL trussrod which takes string tension off the top & gives it a nice piano-like tone. The bridge won't be pulling up or coming off with this JDL arrangement, which gives me peace of mind. I can tune down to D# & it almost sounds like a rosewood dread & plays like butter with no string buzzing. It stays in tune very well, especially when I remember to put graphite lube in the nut grooves. Once new strings settle in I don't often have to touch the tuning keys. This isn't a loud guitar & you won't get much more volume from it strumming hard with heavier strings but it responds nicely to fingerpicking & sounds nice & clear plugged in too. The action is a little lower than most in this price range but could maybe go down another mm or 2 at the 12th fret without buzzing. It's got a balanced sound, not too chimey but not Leo Kottke's growl either. Sounds nice tuned down to C & that's where I keep mine. I tried heavier strings out of curiosity & it sounded dull so I went back to the .010-.047. If you like a little more chime, Elixir 80/20 Bronze Nano strings are good & have a slightly slicker feel. If a jumbo or dread feels bulky, give this a try. It's comfortable to hold & play all day. Great guitar that suits me perfectly. So glad I got it!

    In 12 String Heaven

    By George K

    from Bohemia, NY

    Comments about Breedlove Atlas Series Studio C250/SMe-12 12-String Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Stopped in my local GC the other day and played this puppy. Couldn't get the sound of it off my mind and was back the next day to pick one up along with a 30w acoustic amp. Sound is simply amazing plugged or unplugged, build quality and action is spot on. Highly playable for long stretches. Great value for the $.
