The guitar pictured is the actual guitar you will receive!
At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.
This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your guitar was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without care.
The Farm recently visited the Breedlove factory in Bend, Oregon and got a first-hand look at their meticulous build process. We hand-picked an array of amazing instruments, and some are prototypes and one-of-a-kind. We are offering these as Demo instruments since they were on display at Breedlove, but they have never been owned and are all in excellent condition.
Early in 2018, the Breedlove craftsmen and design team in Bend, Oregon gathered around the exotic tonewoods stacks in the Custom Design Center with a creative mission; design and craft not only the best sounding, but most technically challenging and creative acoustic guitars of the year. The group decided to create this “themed” instrument to unveil at the 2019 Winter NAMM show. This guitar was crafted with the finest Sound Optimized exotic tonewoods, received a creative and challenging finish and pushed the inlay and detail team in fresh and different ways.
For thousands of years the Tongass National Forest has nurtured magnificent Alaska Sitka Spruce trees, the most popular tonewood for acoustic flattop guitars. Have you ever experienced a one-piece top that must have come from an old-growth tree approaching 1,000 years old? Knowing this was a rare treasure, the team began brainstorming an appropriate way to honor this magnificent sound board and recalled the use of Sitka for spars on early sailing ships. Just imagine this tree growing centuries before European vessels braved our vast oceans.
The design team took artistic license and had a great time doing it - staining the solid Walnut back and sides like planks on the salty sea deck of a weathered ship with ornate clinging seaweed and a slow-moving star fish. Dramatically, an ancient ship navigates the angry sea at the 12 fret, while a nautical compass graces the soundhole rosette of this Concert body, and the final touch is a carved octopus adorning the heal cap.
The Honduran Mah neck offers a 25.5" scale and an African Ebony fretboard with 20 frets and is topped with Gotoh 510 tuners.
This guitar is not only a one-of-a-kind, but a once-in-a-lifetime piece. It comes with the Sound Optimization Guitar Portrait and a beautiful Ameritage hardshell case.
This rare custom is lovingly deemed “show stopper” by the crew for obvious reasons: it represents the finest in tonewood combinations, build, finish and design. It is a true work of acoustic guitar art.
