Sustainable & Clear Cut Free
Made from sustainably-sourced exotic and native tonewoods. Noclear-cut trees are used in these instruments. Breedlove uses salvagedand individually harvested timber and has deep relationships withresponsible suppliers around the globe. As we move towardssustainability across all lines, owner Tom Bedell has visited 15countries to discover exactly where the wood comes from, how it isselected and harvested, and how this affects the wildlife, thecommunity, the forest and the planet.
Sometimes called khaya, African mahogany has a familiar crisp, cleanand warm voice and boasts an impressive versatility, taking well tofingerpicking as well as to a more robust strumming attack withoutlosing clarity. All mahogany instruments—like the Organic CollectionWildwood Series (which features sustainably harvested wood source fromthe Republic of Congo) offer a natural compression that delights bluesplayers, folkies and singer/songwriters.
