Overview

The Breedlove OM/SRe Herringbone Acoustic-Electric Guitar from the Roots Series features AAA solid Sitka spruce top, AAA solid rosewood back and sides, ivoroid binding with herringbone top purfling, abalone rosette, and an L.R. Baggs Element Active pickup system with volume and tone controls.

The Breedlove OM body style has a balanced tone and an impressive dynamic range for a moderate-sized instrument, and is ideal for fingerstyle players. The OM/SRe Herringbone offers custom shop performance and exceptional value in a U.S.-made acoustic-electric guitar.

All Breedlove Custom Shop steel-string guitars (except for the Revival Series), Pro Series and Atlas Series guitars use the JLD Bridge Truss system. This device is a cantilevered truss that helps to counterbalance string tension at the bridge, creating a relaxed top and improved structural integrity. This allows the tops to be braced in a very progressive way, with a focus on realizing the full acoustic potential of the top. A relaxed top provides maximal wavelength response and a synergy is created by use of a graduated top thickness, balanced scalloped bracing, and a pinless bridge in combination with the bridge truss system. This gives Breedlove guitars the distinctive and highly dynamic "Breedlove Sound", with a piano-like bass and a remarkably well-balanced tone suitable for a broad variety of musical styles.

Awesome

By Shawn

from Sterling, VA

This guitar has all the features that I wanted. Solid woods, OM style body, a pickup, great string action, 1 and 3/4 nut for easy finger picking and a great tone. It sounds just like it plays. Awesome! I thought my only options for this style of guitar were Taylor and Martin, but this seems to be a middle ground between the classic tones of each. It's not quite as bright as a typical Taylor and it takes slightly less effort to get tone out of than a Martin in the same price range. Compare this guitar with a Martin that's twice the price and then you have an even playing ground in my opinion. On a side note, the case is impressive as well. I'd recommend this guitar to anyone that can afford it.

I can't even begin to express how pleased I am with the Breedlove Roots OM model guitar. It sounds amazing, it feels amazing, and it looks amazing. What more can I say?
