Default Breedlove American Series

Hello everyone. This is my first post to AGF, though I have read some of the threads for a while. I am a long time dreadnought flat picker who is looking for a nice rosewood guitar smaller than a dread. My current main guitar is a Collings D2H I have owned and played for about 20 years. It is a fantastic guitar. My dilemma is that I compare the OMs and 000s I play to it, and they pale. I know I won't find dread power in a small body, but I want to get as close as possible. If money was no object, I would just go buy a smaller Collings, but I need to stay around 2000-3000. I have played a Breedlove American that was good, but I didn't like the cutaway and aging toner all over. Any thoughts on the Breedlove Americans? I know resell could be a problem.

Hi Flatpick... welcome to the AGF! I'm sure others can help you with the Breedlove question. Why not consider a used Collings OM or 000? You could easily get one of those in your price range.

Good luck with the hunt.

Default Welcome!

Hi FlatpickD!

Welcome to the forums!

If you'd prefer a 000 or OM and don't think they can keep up with a dread, look for a 000 or OM by David Webber.

I have a 000-12 fret and it's an amazing instrument. There are a few around, I think there's an OM for sale here on AGF.

Thanks for the advice. I am considering a 000 12 fret. Actually played a Wechter that sounds great for the money, but the 1 7/8 nut put me off, since am used to the 1 11/16.

You should be able to find a Breedlove American without the cutaway. Great guitars for the money.
