Breedlove Guitars

Breedlove Guitars is an American company based in Bend, Oregon that specializes in custom, fingerstyle guitars.

History and background
Breedlove Guitars was established in 1990 by luthiers Larry Breedlove and Steve Henderson, while working at Taylor Guitars. After moving to Oregon, Breedlove and Henderson began specializing in custom, fingerstyle six and twelve string guitars. In 1991 the first Breedlove guitar model appeared, after experiments with the JLD bridge truss system and various bracing techniques. At the 1992 National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) trade, Breedlove and Henderson unveiled five models and three body types. Around 1994, Larry's brother, Kim Breedlove, joined Larry and Steve as a master craftsman. Breedlove strives to be environmentally conscious, and is "dedicated to selecting alternatives to endangered rainforest woods." Breedlove has since expanded to include mandolins and ukuleles.

The Breedlove Passport Series Guitars are perfect or traveling musicians. They are portable and light but they have the bright acoustic sound that any musician desires. The on board tuner is great and it saves you the hassle of carrying around a tuner with you.
