Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The Breedlove C25/CRe Herringbone American Series--a clear winner."
Sound: The sound is deep, woody yet with a clarity in the highs and not overly boomy bass. The combination of cedar and rosewood, coupled with the Breedlove JLD Truss System make this model a winner. It kind of has the vintage sound of an old Gibson J45---hard to believe from a concert-sized body, but true to my ears. Feature: I like the LR Baggs VTC p.u. system; it sounds natural and is well balanced. I like the simple dot inlays, the rosewood headstock overlay, the MOP soundhole inlays and the distinct visual look that is the Breedlove body design. And the Cedar/Rosewood combination make this guitar one to try out; I would not give it a go if it was Sitka/Rosewood. The gloss finish is great---much better than the satin finish of the discontinued Breedlove Pro Series. I like the hardshell case provided, but do not like the 'Breedlove' script in gold spanning the top cover---too showy. Ease of Use: Perfect for fingerstyle and very comfortable to play; the guitar is very light in weight, yet balanced well with the mini grover tuners. Can handle light to medium strumming; not for bluegrass heavy strumming. Quality: Very clean inside and out; the quality of the rosewood may be less than a Taylor, judging from the amount of filler rubbed into the wood on the back. At least you don't see the back when you play! The cedar top wood is very nice and perfectly bookmatched. Value: 2K seems kind of high, but for an American made guitar, this one is still several hundred dollars below a comparable Taylor(i.e. the GS series). If you can find one on sale or a blem, you will come out ahead. Manufacturer Support: Have not had to do this yet. The Wow Factor: It's got a great sound....I played the one I bought for several months in visits to the store, and it consistently outshined the other brands. Give it a try! Overall: None of my other guitars have it's sound(and I've got more than a few), so therefore it's a 'keeper'....I would seek to replace it if it were lost or stolen.
Style of Music: folk/folk rock, contemporary

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Awesome fingerstyle guitar from Breedlove"
Sound: It is very full and fairly punchy. It has that typical Rosewood "boom" and midrange boost, and surprisingly still is very full in this Concert sized body. The Cedar top is very warm. Feature: Awesome 1 3/4" neck width... love the Gotoh tuner as well. Ease of Use: Very easy to play... great action! Quality: Very well made... Period Value: I think it's a great value Manufacturer Support: Easy to get a hold of and super friendly. They helped me with getting a different case for my guitar. No problems at all. They're very nice and helpful. The Wow Factor: I own it, and I'm keeping it.
Style of Music: Folk, Christian, Fingerstyle

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
