Following the vision of owner Tom Bedell, Breedlove is committed to sustainability, with Made in Bend, Oregon, Organic Series and ECO Collection models using only clear-cut free, salvaged and individually harvested native and exotic tonewoods to preserve and protect the forest, its habitats and the communities it serves. Tom Bedell has personally visited forests around the world, meeting with suppliers, mills and local families to ensure best practices. This commitment requires no sacrifice in sound quality, build quality or beauty and we can trace every piece of wood in our USA guitars back to its exact origin.
Every sustainable USA instrument is hand crafted, hand voiced and Sound Optimized®, with carefully matched tops and backs sanded to weight, not thickness, and tuned to target frequencies for consistently powerful sound, rich tone and remarkable projection and sustain across all four of Breedlove’s revolutionary body shapes.
Our Eco Collection guitars make laminate technology sustainable. We’ve developed a way to introduce a resonant core tonewood layer of clear-cut free, individually harvested African mahogany in place of the typical tone-robbing softwoods used in standard acoustic guitar manufacture. Coupled with Breedlove’s deep research into revolutionary body shapes; building to target tonewood weight adds to the optimized, natural sound of each guitar in the ECO Collection. And, Breedlove creates these better sounding guitars while being kind to the earth at affordable price points.
Speaking of our body shapes, Breedlove’s Play Style System personalizes instruments for each individual’s approach, whether a light fingerpicker, a folk strummer or a versatile progressive guitarist. We marry science, art and beauty to make tomorrow’s guitar today. You will sound better, play better and play more with a Breedlove. ...więcej...
