The Premier Dreadnought Rosewood from Breedlove is a marriage of tradition and innovation. It offers the outstanding projection and deep voice associated with world-class dreadnoughts, but with added balance across the strings thanks to the graduated Sitka top. The East Indian rosewood back and sides deliver a profound bass response for players who want to feel more oomph in the low end. Includes hard case.
The Breedlove Dreadnought is slightly more rounded than traditional dreadnoughts, producing beautifully full, punchy, and articulate tones. The Dreadnought appeals to players inspired by the familiarity of a dreadnought, who are looking for nuance and richness from their instrument. The Breedlove Dreadnought projects well, so it excels in an ensemble, and yet retains the refinement needed for vocal accompaniment.
Sitka spruce is grown in the Pacific Northwest, and has been the primary top wood for U.S.A. instruments for many decades. It is strong and light with extended harmonic content, and nearly equals the power of Adirondack.
Back and Side Wood
Indian rosewood has been the standard rosewood choice for decades. It is often associated with the great dreadnoughts, and is an amazingly neutral wood. It is good for many styles and takes its personality from the player. Well-balanced lows, mids, and highs make it a natural for many styles.
After basic machining, each Breedlove neck goes through a comprehensive, build and finish process, starting with the hand shaping of each and every neck. Next, the perfectly sculpted neck heads into the finish process where it receives a wash coat and sealer. Then, over a three-day period, multiple finish coats are applied, and the neck is level sanded. Breedlove then perfects the finish by hand-buffing it and rubbing it down.
