Breedlove Studio Series
The Studio Bass is a solid-top 4-string that takes full advantage of Breedlove's unique bass bracing, featuring the Breedlove Bridge Truss system, which relieves stress on the guitar's top while providing additional sustain and balance. This highly resonant and full-sounding instrument sports an extra-deep jumbo body that sounds as great acoustically as it does plugged in. Plug it in or throw your favorite mic in front of it for great acoustic bass tracks.
The Breedlove Jumbo is Breedlove's largest body shape by volume. Playing the Jumbo is a powerful experience: Sound feels as though it is propelled by the movement of so much air inside the body. It's the perfect shape for conveying big, beautiful tone across all four strings.
Take a look at the Breedlove Studio Bass:
Sitka spruce is grown in the northwest, and has been the primary top wood for U.S.A. instruments for many decades. It is strong, light, and gives extended harmonic content and nearly equals the power of Adirondack.
Back and Sides
Sapele is similar both visually and tonally to dense mahogany, but both darker and harder, giving it a strong visual presence and a bit more upper harmonic content and low-end clarity. It's a good choice for many sizes and shapes, and works well for strumming and fingerstyle.
A satin-finished nato mahogany neck with volute makes the neck comfortable and easy to play. The volute adds strength to the break angle of the headstock. It also acts as a thumb rest for notes played in open and first positions.
Breedlove Bridge Truss
For centuries, one of the most difficult components of crafting guitars has been relieving the stress on the bridge without overbuilding the top and dampening sound. Originally invented over 20 years ago, the Breedlove Bridge Truss is still one of the most innovative truss systems on the market today. Refined and improved over the years, the Breedlove Bridge Truss relieves stress on the top, allowing use of a thinner top, providing for greater sustain and balance, more expression from the instrument, and greater structural integrity - all while adding longevity to the instrument.
The LR Baggs Element pickup and the Breedlove LR-TCV preamp give you great plugged-in sound. The back-lit, colored LED tuner also allows you to see if you're in tune on a dark stage. This set-up lets you play with confidence, so you can focus on your performance.
High-gloss finish, ivory binding and offset position markers give this guitar an understated elegance.
