What does a 3000 year old wood set turned into a guitar sound like? Perfection. Power and Magic in a 6-string box loaded with potential. Not only is this a guitar with gorgeous appointments, it's a rare piece of history. Breedlove unveiled the Ancient Sitka Showstopper a few years back, in which they acquired some wood sets of the now famous, 3000 year old Sitka Tree that was buried underground in a land slide. This oxygen free and mineral rich environment preserved the wood. When it was finally milled and cut into pieces, the normally blonde colored Spruce immediately oxidized with the air and turned different shades of mysterious grey, black onyx. The showstopper, which now has a home with one of our happy customers, was the first of the very few guitars that were made with this rare Sitka Spruce. Here at Music World, we know how incredible this old world wood sounds on a new guitar, and we ventured out to build another two guitars with this top.
On this guitar, you'll find one of the most beautiful, stunning and eye popping Striped Ebony anywhere. It's known for it's power, sustain and rich bass response that just sings and strums like an engine with the paired Sitka Top. It just flat out GOES --->No matter what you give it, it'll give back in headroom and volume.
