I guess it depends on which Breedlove or Larrivee you're playing, whether they fall in modern or vintage.

Originally I'd have put them both in the modern camp, but they have such a broad range of offerings now that it's hard to generalize if you don't know what people's experiences with them are.

The early Breedloves with the radical designs were very modern sounding, and many of the newer models carry that torch, but then there are things like the Revival series which are much more vintage voiced. Same with Larrivee, the early ones with the symmetrical bracing (03, 05, 09, etc) sound to me very much in the modern camp, but the 40, 50, 60 series are more Martin inspired.
