My problem with the Breedlove is that the glossy finish is too thick and the guitar sounds muffled. Mahogany guitars should be light in weight. The Breedlove with its finish and electronics is heavy. Or, it's heavier than I like.

I've owned an open pore Ibanez (AC240) and I would choose the one you're looking at sight unseen over the Breedlove.

*I'd get rid of that pick guard.
Breedlove does make a Koa version of this, which could be what you played but it's twice the price. I am leaning towards the Ibanez but I'm not 100% there yet.
