Product DescriptionThe Breedlove Premier Dreadnought Rosewood is a marriage of tradition and innovation. It offers the outstanding projection and deep voice associated with world-class dreadnoughts, but with added balance across the strings thanks to the graduated Sitka top. The East Indian rosewood back and sides deliver a profound bass response for players who want to feel more oomph in the low end.
Take a look at the gorgeous Breedlove Premier Rosewood dreadnought:
BodyThe Breedlove Dreadnought is slightly more rounded than traditional dreadnoughts, producing beautifully full, punchy, and articulate tones. The Dreadnought appeals to players inspired by the familiarity of a dreadnought, who are looking for nuance and richness from their instrument. The Breedlove Dreadnought projects well, so it excels in an ensemble, and yet retains the refinement needed for vocal accompaniment.
Top WoodSitka spruce is grown in the Pacific Northwest, and has been the primary top wood for U.S.A. instruments for many decades. It is strong and light with extended harmonic content, and nearly equals the power of Adirondack.
Back and Side WoodIndian rosewood has been the standard rosewood choice for decades. It is often associated with the great dreadnoughts, and is an amazingly neutral wood. It is good for many styles and takes its personality from the player. Well-balanced lows, mids, and highs make it a natural for many styles.
Graduated TopBecause no two tops are exactly the same, the graduation process allows them to get the most response from the guitar's top while retaining structural integrity. Once they've selected the perfect top wood for a specific instrument, they evaluate each and every top for flexibility, and then graduate each piece of wood, so it is slightly thinner on the bass side. The amount of graduation is customized for each individual instrument, dependent on the relative stiffness of the top.
This process essentially makes every Breedlove a one-of-kind. Knowing your Breedlove was built with this intentional care and discernment, you can rest assured that the instrument is performing at its highest potential, and focus on what you do best: creating, expressing, and getting the most out of your music.
NeckBreedlove craftsmen often say, "No neck feels better than a Breedlove neck." They may be a bit biased, but industry insiders agree. Here's the big secret: hands-on sculpting. After basic machining, each Breedlove neck goes through a comprehensive, build and finish process, starting with the hand shaping of each and every neck. Next, the perfectly sculpted neck heads into the finish process where it receives a wash coat and sealer. Then, over a three-day period, multiple finish coats are applied, and the neck is level sanded. In the final stage, they perfect the finish by hand-buffing it and rubbing it down to achieve exactly the right thickness for perfect action and playability.
