Breedlove is building no more than 25 Jeff Tweedy Signature Limited Edition 000 Acoustic Guitars. That fact alone should be enough to make these guitars a collector's item while honoring Grammy winner Tweedy.
Wilco's Jeff Tweedy first saw a Revival 000 guitar in 2006 in a Chicago music shop. While waiting for another purchase, he saw a limited edition Breedlove Revival 000 12-fret Calendar guitar (from the 2006 Calendar Series). After playing that guitar for a few minutes, he added it to his bill, and walked out of the store with it. That Revival 000 guitar soon became a stage and studio favorite. Jeff asked Wilco's road manager to find another one to use as a backup.
Appointments in Detail
During preliminary discussions about themes for this guitar, Jeff mentioned an interest in bees, spurred by his reading of a book by beekeeper and writer William Longgood, called The Queen Must Die. With a bee theme in mind, Breedlove designed a headstock inlay for the prototype guitar, showing a flower and a single bee. The inlay has since grown in complexity to feature a beautiful flower and vine pattern with 2 honeybees gathering pollen from the flower.
The fret markers are honeycombs, fashioned from gold pearl. Single honeycomb cells adorn the 5th, 7th, 9th and 15th frets, and 3 cells together mark the 12th fret.
