Breedlove D20

Premiere Line Dreadnought
Western Red Cedar Top
Maple Back & Sides (fiddleback with aged toner stain)
Rosewood Binding!!!

Flatpicker's heaven... here's a mint condition Breedlove Dreadnought with some top-notch appointments. This guitar has a fiddleback Maple back with flamed Maple sides (all with an aged toner stain) and a Western Red Cedar top. This combination gives it a rounded, powerful tone. These woods are complemented by a total Master Class Package...Rosewood Binding, Bone Nut and Saddle, and Schaller tuners.

Breedlove opted not to release this instrument through normal retail channels because a fret file dinged the binding during set-up of the instrument. This would normally be a routine repair of very minor proportions, but in this case efforts to blend the repair left a small amount of discoloration in the binding. It appears as a darker section, less than a centimeter across and about 2mm tall. I have not been able to get a photograph that shows it very well, but would be glad to email you what I have. On the whole, the binding variation looks very minor, and would easily be mistaken for natural and expected variations in the wood.

This guitar is a meaty dreadnought - it gives out as much as you're willing to lay into it. It's life so far is a short one, basically going from the Breedlove production floor to the Breedlove showroom wall, so with a little love, this guitar is going to open up nicely. Be the one to give it the love it needs!
