Breedlove CM Classic
Western Red Cedar Top
Figured Walnut Back/Sides and sides
Asymmetrical Grand-Concert body
Master Class Bloodwood binding
The Breedlove CM... the ultimate expression of the Breedlove aesthetic. An
asymmetrical Grand-Concert body, with Sharp Cutaway, Figured Walnut back and
sides, Western Red Cedar top, Linear Fusion Inlay, Master Class Bloodwood
binding and abalone rosette. Check out that figured Walnut on the back! There's
a stunning figure to the sweeping Walnut grain, and there's a cross grain
that flows across perpendicularly, and shimmers in the light. The Breedlove
CM is absolutely an instrument that sounds as amazing as it looks, and that
is a lot to live up to - this instrument is made with an incredible attention
to detail and quality.
This CM is a top quality instrument, with only one single thing keeping it
from being mint/pristine. There is a ding, midway along the bass side of the
instrument. This ding was inflicted during manufacture by the handle of an
Exacto knife. I have been asked to refrain from describing the event in too
much detail in order to protect the identities of the embarassed, but I can
tell you that the Exacto was actually airborne for a moment, and did hit someone
in the head prior to falling on the guitar. I imagine the whole sequence of
events could be done some descriptive justice if it were rendered in Bullet-Time.
The result of this mishap is a 2mm ding in the finish of the instrument.
