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.
This Breedlove Masterclass Dreadnought Carmel Burst acoustic electric guitar is a heirloom quality dreadnought that will only get better over time. Featuring master grade woods from the Pacific Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands, the solid figured Koa back and sides brings clarity along with warm, light tones. The solid Bearclaw Sitka Spruce top provides focused tone with a strong presence. The unique Breedlove dreadnought body offers balance in both tone and voice, and its beautiful Carmel Burst gloss finish and inlay accents make it a prize you will want to display as art as much as play.
Breedlove's best selling shape is well known as being their concert body, but their master craftsmen prove that they produce a superior dreadnought that enhances the traditional dreadnought sound. If you’re inspired by the familiarity of a dread, but are looking for more nuance and richness than usual, this Masterclass Dreadnought Carmel Burst delivers. The shape is slightly more rounded than traditional dreadnoughts and produces beautifully full, punchy, and articulate tones. It also provides excellent projection and articulation, so it excels in any ensemble. The hand-graduated top provides the balance and clarity that make this one of the most innovative and expressive-sounding dreadnoughts on the market.
The 25" scale Honduran Mah neck features a slimmer neck profile which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish contributes to ideal playability – the finish process alone takes three days, including precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing. The African Ebony fretboard offers 20 frets and a 1 3/4 inch nut width and boasts Abalone Masterclass Leaves inlays.
Additional appointments include LR Baggs Anthem TRU-Mic electronics, a winged African Ebony bridge, Abalone soundhole rosette, Gotoh gold tuners with Ebony buttons and comes with the hardshell case pictured.
