Overview

The Passport PLUS C250/SBe acoustic-electric guitar is inspired by the Breedlove Custom Shop C25 shape and voice. The C25 shape is highly versatile, comfortable and efficient โ€œ Breedlove's top-selling shape for over 20 years. The PLUS C250/SBe model features the amazing tone of the bridge truss bracing system for sustain and complexity in each note. A solid Sitka Spruce top and exotic bubinga back and sides generate a warm tone with good projection and make this acoustic-electric guitar an excellent value.

The Breedlove Passport PLUS C250/SBe has both advanced electronics and lighter weight bracing in the top and back for increased resonance. The Passport Active VTC pickup lets you be heard in any venue and a built-in chromatic tuner with back-lit screen makes it easy to stay in tune. A 9-Volt battery is easily accessed near the endpin area. Includes gig bag.

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

Includes gig bag.

I originally went into the store to purchase the Parkwood guitar and I noticed the Breedlove on the wall. So I just wanted to compare the two since they were about the same price. I really like the Breedlove because: 1. The tuner if very nice, easy to read, and very accurate. 2. I like how it doesn't have bridge pins to loose! 3. The sound was so much better! I really love my Breedlove and wish I would have bought this guitar first to learn on instead of my Ibanez (I still like my Ibanez V70) just because of the sound quality!

I had longed for a new "quality" guitar since I bought a low-end guitar 2 years ago. I had grown tired of the buzzing noise of mine so I went to Guitar Center to purchase a new acoustic. When I went to buy one, I played this guitar. I have already tried Martins, Ibanez, Fender, Taylors, and other quality and non-quality guitars. When I heard this guitar, it was amazing and superb towards anything in my price range. I immediately bought it and brought it home. When I played it 2 days later, I started to hear buzz noises and had to inspect it. I realized that the truss bar was crooked and I had to bring it in to fix it. Then 2-3 days later after fixing it, I had to go and fix it again. So I started suspecting something, so I got it checked why it kept doing that. I found out that the guitar was a little damaged, so I had to return it and purchase a new one. This guitar has amazing sound, but I just hope that the quality build of it was a little more "quality."

My first guitar

By Matthew Shipley

from Boone, NC

Comments about Breedlove Passport PLUS C250/SBe Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Learning how to play guitar is extremely rewarding, especially when you are able to acquire such a beautiful looking and sounding instrument. I would recommend this guitar for anyone. The action is a little high, which has made playing other guitars far easier, but nothing close in cost compares to the sound that this guitar brings. The built in tuner is amazingly accurate, and works perfectly in loud rooms as well. While I will buy more guitars, I will be keeping this beauty in my collection.

Fit like a glove

By William Isgrigg

from Keller, Texas

Comments about Breedlove Passport PLUS C250/SBe Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Went to pick out my first guitar. I have been taking lessons for some time now, but with a borrowed guitar. I had always been told by players that your guitar should 'fit you like a glove'. You should be pleased with the bridge, action, feel and even the look. And you will just 'know' when a guitar is right for you. After picking up guitars from 8-10 different manufacturers at guitar center over 2-3 weeks with no success, I was handed this Breedlove by an associate. It fit me well... and no I was not going to give it back. Until the associate brought me the brand new one in the box w/gig bag. Built in tuner works well. The Bubinga wood is also known as African Rosewood.. very NICE/Unique color. Just the right weight and feel, for me anyway. What a great guitar!

The Perfect Acoustic Electric

By Michael Tang

from PA

Comments about Breedlove Passport PLUS C250/SBe Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I've been looking to buy another acoustic electric for quite some time now, and I've finally found it. The sound and volume of this guitar really caught me off guard. I was not expecting such a loud, yet versatile and extremely dynamic sound from such a body type. The build quality and detail is also extremely well constructed - hard to believe this was "hand crafted" in Korea. What makes this guitar even better, is the smaller sized body type, which makes it a lot more portable than your conventional jumbo body acoustic guitars(Perfect for me, since I'm a college student always on the move). I was quite hesitant about getting this guitar online because of the horror stories about guitars that arrive damaged or blemished from the freight...but this guitar comes inside a free padded case, and two boxes packaged on top! I would definitely buy another breedlove in the future, and will very likely be from guitarcenter.com!

Great sound

By Eric Rossok

from Indianapolis, IN

Comments about Breedlove Passport PLUS C250/SBe Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The tone and "feel" of this guitar outshined all the guitars I played at GC. I played Martins, Taylors, and Seagull guitars, this Breedlove was the one that I really liked. I was looking for a great sounding guitar that felt really good to play. This guitar fits like a glove. The tuner and electronics are an added bonus.

My Baby

By Joseph G

from Lock Haven, PA

Comments about Breedlove Passport PLUS C250/SBe Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I recently bought this guitar hoping to upgrade from my old Bentley acoustic. I tried out dozens of guitars from the $300 range all the way up to $1000. I can honestly say that this guitar out-shined the rest by a large margin. Although the built in tuner is nice, it was the sound that did it for me in the end. The guitar has a nice clean ring to it that I didn't find on Taylor's and Martin's twice it's price. I find this guitar to be an incredible deal for any starving college student (or pretty much anyone short on cash) who wants a quality guitar. I literally cannot say enough about this guitar. It has quickly become my baby. I fully recommend this guitar

Good Value for the money

By Brad Floyd

from Portage Indiana.

Comments about Breedlove Passport PLUS C250/SBe Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The tone of this guitar is excellent for a guitar in this price range. The action is good and the set up was decent and really didn't need any attention. I was impressed with the tonal quality from the time I picked it up. The sustain of each note is incredible! I was looking for an every day guitar to use to try and keep some miles off my stage guitar as I like to keep that it in great condition. I was looking for something for every day use for playing and rehearsing, as well as a guitar that I could use on stage as a back up. For a guitar under $600 this guitar does all of that as well as is pleasing to the eye as well as the ear. The fit and finish of this guitar is awesome at this price point. I love my Taylor 814CE as my dream guitar that I use on stage, and this Breedlove gives me something for every day use with a tone that is pleasing and a finish that is beautiful to look at. I was pleased with this for something that is not American made. Great job on this guitar at this price. The only negative thing I have to say is the gig bag they provide for this guitar is not very good protection, so I bought a hard shell case to protect it while traveling with it.

Fantastic acoustic guitar

By Mike Miller

from Oklahoma City

Comments about Breedlove Passport PLUS C250/SBe Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

If you are looking for an easy playing acoustic guitar with great tone, then look no further. I just can't say enough good things about this guitar. It has the bright sparkle of a Taylor with the full richness of a Martin. Maybe its the Breedlove bridge truss system or the exotic bubinga back and sides, but this guitar has great tone. I was also blown away with the on-board electronics. The backlit tuner makes alternate tuning a breeze and the L.R.Baggs pickup system sounds amazing. The guitar is extremely comfortable to sit and play for hours and the neck is quite possibly one of the best feeling shapes ever. It's not too thick nor is it to thin; it's not too wide nor is it too narrow, it's just right! You could spend a lot more on an acoustic guitar, but you wont find a better feeling or sounding one at any price.
