Overview

Breedlove Passport guitars are designed for ultimate portability without tonal sacrifice. These comfortable, easy-to-play instruments are the perfect choice for the musician on the move.

Built on the popular dreadnought platform, the body width and depth of the Breedlove Passport D200/SMP guitar produce an ideal sound chamber for the mid and upper-mid range frequencies. The sound is balanced and dynamic, with plenty of clarity and projection, so your sound can cut through nearly any mix. Whether strumming on some rhythmic chords, or getting wild on a show-stopping flat pick solo, the dreadnought guitar sound holds its own alongside almost any instrumentation.

The Breedlove Passport acoustic guitar has a solid spruce top that offers rich tone, with lots of presence and clarity, while the maple body adds bold mid-range projection. The bolt-on neck joint creates a sturdy neck with lasting sustain. The rugged mahogany neck and strong rosewood bridge and fretboard add subtleties to the tone, with attention paid to the crispness of the acoustic guitar.

The 25-1/2" scale, 1-11/16" nut width, soft V-neck shape, and 16" fretboard radius aid in providing comfort for intricate finger movements up and down the acoustic guitar's 20 frets. Dressed in a soft satin finish, and featuring chrome hardware, and Grover tuners, this Breedlove guitar sings with luxurious appointments, yet it is offered at a price that won't break the bank.

Includes Breedlove gig bag.

Great Guitar

By Mike Reeves

from District of Columbia

I wanted a good beginner/intermediate guitar: something that was made well and playable. Less expensive guitars are notorious for cutting corners where it counts. I also do not have very long arms, so I was looking for a smaller body guitar without going down to a 3/4 model. Honestly, my heart was set on Taylor's Big Baby but felt that it was a little out of my price range. After trying several different makes and models out at my local Guitar Center, I settled on the no frills D200. While it did not come equipped with a tuner or 1/4" jack like some of the other guitars in the price range, I could easily see where the money went. The design of the guitar is amazing, with a bridge that doesn't require pins, a headstock that minimizes the string angle coming out of the nut (ultimately causing a better tone because more unified pressure at the end of the string), and seaming every painstaking detail factored in. I was only looking for satin neck guitars and the all-satin body is beautiful. This $300 guitar could easily last a lifetime.

Amazing Playability & Value of a Martin thats Affordable

By Rudy Smith

from New York City

The Breedlove D200 is under rated in my opinion. I owe a Martin OM Concert and a Taylor 314CE both amazing guitars but my Breedlove D200SMP is the one I play often and take on the road with me. Its great for gigging, studio sessions and just writing/composing music. Its playability is ridiculous right out the box. Even though I had a set and a Fishman Infinity Matrix put in to add to the richness of the guitar. It mics well and you don't need really need it but its personal changes I like to add to all my guitars that make each unique. Get this Breedlove guitar and you will play all the time! its worth it and its a workhouse!

Well Done Breedlove!!

By Chris Guillory

from Austin Texas

This guitar is wonderful. Lots of guitars are difficult to play loudly, making you play heavy on the strings, but because of the resonance it won't take such a heavy hand to add a dynamic range to your volume. The D200 sounds very clear in contrast to muffled sounding Breedloves (and others) I've played. Even though the back and sides are laminate, the solid spruce top more than makes up for it in the penetration and fullness of tone, and I found this to be advantageous, as it is lighter and more comfortable to play. Visually its very simple, but has clean lines, gorgeous satin finish, and of course the Breedlove headstocks have always been original and visually attractive. Playability is fantastic. The neck is also a satin type finish, not glossy, which makes it very nice to slide up and down the neck. The action on it is perfect, and I doubt I will make any adjustments even though I just bought it. The only thing I wish it had was a pick guard, but anyone can easily add one to it. This is a $700.00 guitar for only $299.99. You cannot go wrong. Get one and enjoy playing!!!!!!

Bang for your buck!

By Peterson Xiong

from minneapolis

This is the best deal i have ever bought in my life! $299, go and grab that store coupon and get 12%, or $30 or any amount of and its under $300 The actions is perfect The guitar feels like a Taylor and sounds better then one in my opinion, at this price range your getting more then your dollar. warm, clean,and constant when you strum and don't get me started on the finger picking. Sounds amazing and knowing that it will age and sound even better, i am excited Buy a humidifier and enjoy!

AMAZING FOR THE PRICE!!!!!!!

By Richard Farabee

from Killeen, TX

So this last November a close friend of mine had sparked my interest enough in guitar to convince me to go and buy one and start learning to play. I have always been a music lover and was a vocalist growing up but I had never learned to actually play an instrument of any kind. So on "Black Friday" my buddy and I met up at our local Guitar Center and played litterally EVERYTHING in the store in the $100-$500+ price range and even played a few martins and taylors around the $700 range. After about 4-5 hours in which I just listened to him playing (and to be 100% honest I couldn't tell much of a difference in any of them at the time!) and at the end of it all he handed me the Breedlove D200/SMP and said "this is your guitar buddy!" He has been playing for a long time so I took his advice and I was the proud owner of my first acoustic guitar. We went home and began the horrible experience of trying to teach me to play this wonderful instrument!! Now here I am almost three months later and I have learned a handfull of good songs, different scales, getting my barr chords down and able to actually hold my own in a jam session with him and I just wanted to get on here and let everyone know what an amazing guitar this is. My buddy that I jam with has a $1300 Martin acoustic electric and my little breedlove will stand up next to it all day long!! Then my buddy went out and bought a Taylor Dread for $700+ and he prefers playing my breedlove!! If you have any questions as to if this is a great guitar look no further!! This is by far the BEST ACOUSTIC GUITAR you will find anywhere at this price point and then some!!!! I WILL NEVER GET RID OF THIS GUITAR!!!

This Guitar is Unbelievable

By John Kenney

from Palmdale, California

Killing time yesterday.....visited GC on an afternoon in the SF Valley...not planning to buy anything. I have a real nice Guild (not a high dollar model but a good solid guitar) and my baby, the 50 year old Gibson J-50. My Gibson is the sweetest of the sweet and as I said my baby. (I have had her over 40 years) I record at home and have been playing forever. Now I write. Ok back to the story. I was wandering around the acoustic area looking at which models of Taylor and Gibsons were offered. I saw this pretty little Breedlove on the wall, very plain looking but elegant in its simplicity. I have to admit the slope shoulder design is my favourite. As soon as I held it I knew this felt right. The neck is wonderful, I have small hands so it matters. It played like a dream, sounded like a dream. All the crispness of my J-50 as well as its delicate presentation. I'm no pro who can say exactly how it sounds, only how it sounds to me. This guitar told me (as I tell people a guitar will do) 'I'm the one!' The guys at GC were fine....no high pressure (which will always send me out the door) no inflated claims....no attempt to 'bump me' into a higher priced model. I really appreciate that. Maybe being an oldster is part of it.....because once I decided I just said.....'I will be needing the case for this one.' Its as simple as that....This is ONE GREAT LITTLE GUITAR! I came home and read all I could on this model...everyone says the same thing. Awesome guitar ~ great for a beginner. Well guys, I'm no beginner I will just say My Gibson can rest a bit now and the Guild.....well its going to be for sale soon. Thanks Breedlove for caring to make an affordable yet quality guitar. This is my very first Breedlove....might not be my last. It might not suit everyone but I can't see why it wouldn't. Thanks again John K.

Great beginner's acoustic

By Marc Tobin

from New Haven, CT

I was initially looking at the Taylor 114ce for $849. I spent time playing one @ a local shop and liked the way it sounded, but this Breedlove at almost 1/3 the price was a close match in sound and ease of play. Although it wasn't as rich sounding as the Taylor, for 1/3 the price it was close enough. Highly recommended for an entry level acoustic guitar. Much better than the big brands I played, i.e. Fender, Ibanez, Epiphone & Jasmine, at the same price point in terms of sound and ease of play. Highly recommended

Exceptional

By Victoria Simmons

from Hillsboro, OR

I bought this for my 14 year old son, for Christmas, who is just learning guitar in high school. I spent a month researching, playing (I also play), talking to, and reading about guitars before I bottomed out on this particular item. I didn't want to spend a bundle as I don't know if he will continue his playing. Given that, I also didn't want a cheap guitar to discourage him from wanting to pick it up and play it. I finally came upon this guitar at Guitar Center and was very pleasantly surprised at the sound and movement. It is really a beautiful instrument, has superb sound, and the neck is very comfortable and easy to move around on. I would highly recommend Breedlove in general and this one in particular. Even if you are an experienced player, this guitar is worth the money. My son loves it and has been on it since Christmas morning. It is a guitar that he can grow with and appreciate well into the future. I am next on the list and have my eye on a Breedlove as well!

Sound and tone of similar more expensive guitars

By Dustin Lozinski

from Lambertville, MI

I was in the market for a new full size dread acoustic. My previous guitars are a Yamaha Apx 500(fun great guitar) and an Epiphone acoustic. I had my heart set on a Taylor 110. I had played so many guitars and couldn't find anything with a similar sound to the Taylor. Then I picked up the Breedlove D200 Passport. The tone is beautiful. The maple back/sides give it a very balanced, bright, loud/punchy, chimey tone. Less woofy or rich compared to mahagony. I played it against the Taylor for about 30 minutes and actually preferred it over the Taylor and it was $300.00 less. Breedlove makes a great, well built, inexpensive(not cheap) acoustic. It has nice playability, the action is set nicely. It has a very simple design, no frills, but I do like the satin finish. I did notice a little fret buzz when I got home. I took it back to GC and it simply required the tuner pegs to be tightened. I couldn't be happier with this acoustic.

Comfy

By Ilya Kravchik

from St.Paul

I bought this guitar on a whim on black Friday. It's well made, comfortable and has a beautiful engelman spruce top. The sound is OK.I want to return it and buy something serious like a Taylor GA3.
