Breedlove

Description

The Breedlove Signature Companion travel-size acoustic-electric features a torrefied European spruce top and sustainably sourced African mahogany body. As part of the Breedlove Organic Collection, now available at Guitar Center, the Signature Companion is ideal for a first-time player, skilled player or gigging pro. The Companion model is Breedlove's new travel-size guitar that has all the sound and features you'd expect from a full-size guitar, including Natural Sound electronics. Diminutive only in size, the semi-gloss Signature Companion is as bold in its Copper Burst look as it is in its rich, punchy spruce tone.

Breedlove Organic Collection Signature Companion main features:

Sustainably sourced all-solid African mahogany back and sides with torrefied European spruce top
23.5" scale African mahogany neck with 19-fret Indian laurel fingerboard and Indian laurel bridge
Premium Breedlove chrome closed gear tuning machines with black buttons, Breedlove Natural Sound electronics
Thin UV semi-gloss Copper Burst finish

Sustainably sourced all-solid tonewood body and torrefied top

The Organic Collection Signature Series pairs torrefied European spruce with African mahogany for a high-value, superior-sounding all-purpose instrument. The torrefaction process, accomplished at the source in the Swiss Alps, offers Signature models an "aged" sound and makes for easier maintenance during fluctuations in temperature and humidity.

Classic Breedlove slim neck profile

Breedlove's slimmer guitar neck profile enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands.

State-of-the-art Breedlove Natural Sound electronics

The Breedlove Signature Companion model is equipped with Breedlove's Natural Sound electronics. Natural Sound electronics feature soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls, plus easy battery replacement.

Thin UV finish on a convenient, travel-size acoustic-electric

Though it's a travel-size acoustic-electric guitar, the Breedlove Signature Companion has all the features of its larger cousins, including the benefits of Breedlove’s Sound Optimization research. A thinner, durable semi-gloss Copper Burst UV finish completes the Breedlove Signature Companion. The thin UV-finished top reduces weight and also contributes to a more complex sound with sustained overtones.

Other special features of the Breedlove Signature Companion acoustic-electric include forward X bracing, chrome tuning machines and bone nut and saddle.

About the Breedlove Organic Collection

The result of a three-year journey, the Breedlove Organic Collection brings sustainably sourced, FSC Certified, solid native and exotic tonewoods to an affordable line of acoustic-electrics for the very first time. Each wood combination is available in Breedlove's three distinctive, popular shapes—Concerto, Concert and 12-fret Concertina. The Signature Series and the Wildwood Series are also available in the new travel-size Companion shape. Breedlove Organic models feature thin UV finishes and Breedlove Natural Sound electronics. With no synthetic materials and less than half the glue of similar models, the Breedlove Organic Collection provides the natural path to uninhibited solid sound.
