Default NGD: Breedlove Masterclass

Just had an awesome trade with an upstanding guy here on the forums. Got an instant crush on this quirky guitar soon as I saw it. Deserves more photos but I thought I'd at least share these. Also here's the link to an earlier sale thread, not my purchase.

No idea why this guitar keeps slipping through folks' fingers, but it's definitely here to STAY! Love it so much!

Those are smudges on the back, not scratches! And don't those cocobolo eyes look like a bunch of monsters in line at the DMV?

That is absolutely stunning.
I have always really liked the look of those, and yours is just outstanding.
Maybe some day ...

Congratulations and best of luck with it!

Yep, congrats! The Breedlove Masterclass are fantastic, & have always flown under the radar, not sure why. Fit, finish, materials & tone are second to none! Enjoy!!

the front does look a little like a fat kid with a mustache, in some lights, but i’ve decided i love it. :-)

Yep...I let this one slip through my fingers! It's absolutely the most beautiful guitar I ever owned!!! It was made my Breedlove specifically for one of the big shots at Guitar Center. Breedlove says new would cost north of $11,000.00! If I had the money I would have undoubtedly bought this one back. The high end Breedlove Masterclass guitars are as good as any small shop guitar out there... The CM body shape gives it such an incredible full sound..ideal for open tunings. Enjoy it!!!!

Travel, simply travel is the ONLY reason it went through mine. Yeah, the looks are off the chart but that neck was to die for and the sound this guitar eminates is dumbfounding! Quirky guitar shape,yeah but just an extraordinary guitar.

Anyway, it's in better hands now and definitely with a superior player. Alex is great guy to deal with and seems to be in real life as well. Happy it worked out.

If I hadn’t pick up my Exotic Fingrtstyle recently, I would have beat you in snapping up this beauty.

Congrats and enjoy.

Enjoying having only 1 guitar for now, but thinking a Bedell parlor would be nice addition.
