I haven't seen any stage dreadnoughts around, so here's mine. I didn't really care for pointy headstocks and lightning bolt bridges, so I'm happy with their new choices:



I bought it in November 2014, so it has laminated sides / solid back rosewood.
Sorry for the pic quality, I'm currently moving and don't have time for a proper set up.

I LOVE the sound of my Martin OMC-28 BUT can't get used to the wider neck and string spacing. It's 1.75" at the nut and 2 1/4" bridge spacing.
I also have an old Guild D40, my first good acoustic, and it's a bit small at 1 5/8" at the nut. So……I need an 00, 000, or OM, preferably with a cutaway, that has a 1 11/16" Nut and 1 1/8" String spacing.

Any suggestions for a Breedlove that fits that bill?
B/L does not make a stock guitar with a 1 11/16" nut, Their 1 3/4" nut has a 2 3/16" string spacing at the Saddle that is just like the Martin Performing Artist taper they use on just about all their stock standards these days. The B/L lineup for their American made models starts out. Oregon series, Premier, Legacy, Masterclass, and Exotic series, then their custom shop models. Your Martin has the specs of the models that Ted stocks as his Custom Martin models at, http://www.laguitarsales.com/ . B/L will have just about everything you may need in a guitar at http://breedlovemusic.com/ . Hope this helps!

As a matter of full disclosure, I am an official Breedlove artist. But I had already owned nine Breedloves before that happened! My first Breedlove is this first photo -- an Atlas AD25/SR+ from 2004. I was looking for something to play on stage as my Takamine EAN-16C was nice, but... I got this Breedlove and was blown away at the sound acoustically (plugged in, not so bad either). I got lucky with this guitar, as there is a bit of bearclaw in the solid spruce top.


This is my American Series D20/SMe...


And my Cascade Jumbo J25/CRe...


These are two of the Atlas series I perform with – another AD25/SR+ and a jumbo AJ250/SF+ 12-string.


I have a few others... mostly backups for the performance guitars. I have several others I lust after and hopefully will one day play. Love my Breedloves!

I've only heard one Breedlove that belongs to a friend. He loves that guitar and has had it for years.

It sounds horrible to my ear. But hey, it's not mine and I don't have to play it.

I'm new to guitar playing, but I recently played a Breedlove C20 SMYR limited edition Oregon series that totally blew me away w/ its amazing tone and power. If I had more money in my bank account, it would have come home with me! I am jealous of all of you Breedlove owners if your guitars sound anything like that one!

I love your OM flyer! I'm super bummed that BL has discontinued all OM body shapes. Back in 2013 I was eyeballing the Oregon OM but they have stopped all production of them.

Thanks! Sorry, I missed this when you posted it. This is a great guitar and a fantastic value for the money (vs equivalent Taylors, etc).

If you are patient you can find them on E-bay or Craig's list. The Premier line-up is in essence the replacement for the Am-series. You can also go custom shop and have one built to your specs.

Default New Premier/Mahogany Dread W/pickguard!

Here is my latest BL It's a Premier Dreadnought Mahogany that is just about as good as it gets. My camera does it no justice, I'll do a sound check as soon as I get decent recording equipment.
