What is your opinion of this product?
My first 12 string and my first Breedlove and I am very impressed. Wood and finish are gorgeous. I was hesitant at first about the side sound hole. The rubber sound hole plug is not as obtrusive as appears in the pictures and slips in easy enough even when new and stiff (as long as you start from the fat end of the plug taking it out and replace it pointy end first). What you hear playing is amazingly different with the plug in or out. The neck is noticeably wider than a standard 6 string but easy to adapt to. And the sound is simply lush when strumming, articulate when fingerpicking. Fairly bright sound with the stock strings. I have not played it plugged in yet so we will see what the electronics are capable of.
To put my comments in context: I play at an average level, a couple times a year for paid gigs but mostly open mic and personal enjoyment. I own/play Martin, Taylor, and Baden 6 string acoustics, Carvin electric, Warwick bass, Weber mando, and Lo Gordon banjo.
