Solid Wood Top
Along with its body shape, a guitar’s top is the defining element ofits sound, driving, through its vibration, the key aspects of volume,tone, sustain and projection. Spruce will, due in part to its famousstiffness-to-weight ratio, ring loud and clear. A solid wood toptranslates those vibrations with more immediacy and purity of tone, andreacts more directly with the intent of a player. If you are at anintermediate level or above, you will appreciate the instantlyrecognizable benefits of a solid wood top.
Breedlove guitars feature a slimmer neck profile, which enablescomfortable play, even with smaller hands. The hand-rubbed, semi-glossBreedlove neck finish also contributes to ideal playability.

THE COMPANION BODY SHAPE
Historically, serious guitar players on-the-move have faced a rathertough dilemma; contend with the challenges of traveling with a full-sizeguitar or settle for a more convenient, smaller instrument withtraditionally reduced sound quality… the travel guitar.
RED CEDAR TOP
Softer than spruce, with a warmer cast to its look and its tone,western red cedar has less headroom for a heavy attack, but comesalive—with sweet harmonics and a wide tonal palette—for a lighter touch.Related to mahogany, it shares a focused sound, much loved byfingerstylists.
MAHOGANY BACK & SIDES
Long treasured by cabinetmakers and shipwrights for its simple,straight-grained beauty, strength and workability, mahogany—used intops, backs, sides and necks—is also one of the true classic tonewoods,famous for its clear, strong fundamental; even string-to-string balance;and warm midrange emphasis. Mahogany pairs well with spruce tops aswell as with itself in single species guitars—and both combinationsdefine much of American roots music.
