While other guitar brands offer traditional Sitka spruce - East Indian rosewood guitars, they sound and play vastly different from the upgraded Breedlove Premier Series. Through SOUND OPTIMIZING we have frequency analyzed our Sitka spruce tops and East Indian rosewood backs, sanding our tops thinner and our backs slightly thicker. The results: more pronounced bass, balanced with clear treble notes for a rich full sound… a more robust classic sound of Sitka spruce - rosewood with the unmatched tonal balance Breedlove is recognized for. Complementing our enhanced sound is a new Copper finish, and dart position markers, giving an elegance to the presentation of the four models. Designed as performance guitars, the new Premier Series instruments are handcrafted in Bend, Oregon. Factory equipped with LR Baggs EAS VTC electronics and it comes with a deluxe hardshell case.
