The Breedlove Passport 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar has a full tonal range that offers a clear distinction between the root note and the octaves. Its Concert body with soft cutaway is Breedlove's most popular body shape, favored by players because it is well-balanced, compact, comfortable to play, and offers all the qualities of a great sounding guitar. It generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The Concert works well when played fingerstyle, as vocal accompaniment, or at a full strum.
Sitka spruce is grown in the northwest, and has been the primary top wood for U.S.A. instruments for many decades. It is strong, light, and gives extended harmonic content and nearly equals the power of Adirondack.
Back and Sides
Sapele is similar both visually and tonally to dense mahogany, but both darker and harder, giving it a strong visual presence and a bit more upper harmonic content and low-end clarity. It's a good choice for many sizes and shapes, and works well for strumming and fingerstyle.
A satin-finished nato mahogany neck with volute makes the neck comfortable and easy to play. The volute adds strength to the break angle of the headstock. It also acts as a thumbrest for chords played in open and first positions.
Breedlove Bridge Truss
For centuries, one of the most difficult components of crafting guitars has been relieving the stress on the bridge without overbuilding the top and dampening sound. Originally invented over 20 years ago, the Breedlove Bridge Truss is still one of the most innovative truss systems on the market today. Refined and improved over the years, the Breedlove Bridge Truss relieves stress on the top, allowing use of a thinner top, providing for greater sustain and balance, more expression from the instrument, and greater structural integrity all while adding longevity to the instrument.
The Passport proprietary VTC pickup features a built-in chromatic tuner with a backlit screen and an easily accessible 9-volt battery near the endpin, so it's a breeze to stay in tune in any environment.
Lustrous full-gloss finish, pinless Breedlove bridge and black binding: an attractive package that will make you proud to play this guitar.

Comments about Breedlove Passport-12 String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
I've been looking for a good affordable 12 string for years but never found one I would actually buy. I was very excited about the Taylor 150e its a great guitar but then I stumbled upon the Breedlove passport,I loved the feel of the neck and it sounded great plus it has a built in tuner and pin less bridge, great features on a 12 string guitar. Best of all its $200 less then the Taylor. The passport has been discontinued but its been replaced by the new pursuit series. Most $500 12 strings are really horrible the Breedlove is a world apart.
