How would you describe that Mando from a tonal perspective?

I have never played one apart from a few chords once taught me at a Rennaissance Festival (more than 30 years ago and I was in no condition to remember them) but have become a huge Chris Thile fan.

So I dig me the tone of a good mando!

Yeah, the tone is ... ummmm ..... wonderful! The traditional mandolin for Bluegrass has the f holes. I'd say this instrument probably wouldn't work as well for that style: the tone is a little "boomier", maybe more like a small guitar. Luckily I dont play bluegrass so its not an issue for me. But its great for the folk/acoustic singalong stuff which we usually end up playing.

At 1st I was shipping my pants but then I got really stupid and thought the 16oz uke pushing up against it would keep it in check lol. The couch was gripping it pretty well and I had someone standing near in case it fell while i took the pics.

I picked her up about a month ago and can't put it down. Some of my other acoustics will be going on the market.

Concert Stage, the top of the MIK before you get into the Bend built. I've been looking to pick up a used US built but when this one popped it's head up I had to snap it up.

Love this guitar...

Good luck on that search! I bought one of my Breedloves new, but got another one used in a trade here on the forum. Keep your eyes peeled!

Here is mine, the ever so popular AC25/SR Plus. Great guitar and I picked it up on clearance right before it was disconinued. This guitar sounds great and is now, according to the S/N, just over 7 years old. It is strung with Ernie Ball Aluminum Bronze but I really don't like them on this guitar and will put something else soon. It is upgraded with a Colosi bone saddle and has been babied and adequately humidified. As for any complaints, I have found that for my fingerstyle preferences that I like a guitar with a minimum of 1 3/4 nut. This one has a 1 11/16. It also has the barn door preamp which I just can't stand anymore- on any guitar. I really do have gas for either an Oregon Concert or OM/SMYe (which now also has been discontinued). I can't believe Breedlove discontinued their OM bodies!

2011 American Series C25/SR. Great low end. Crazy sustain. Loud as a canon but really well balanced.

Hey Twilo, your guitar was the 2,719 guitar of this model built in June of 2006. I'm basing this information off of what I received from the website before the model was discontinued and site redesigned. You can contact Breedlove to verify but I'm pretty sure this is accurate.

I should have went American series. i picked up the C25/Pro and was blown away by the bass response. Excellent playability too. Nice guitar!
