Breedlove Northwest Classic
Sitka Spruce Top
Myrtlewood Back & Sides
Master Class Walnut Binding
No guitar expresses the spirit of the Pacific Northwest more eloquently than
the Northwest model. This instrument is created from woods native to the region.
The back and sides are myrtlewood from Oregon’s coastal mountains. Harmonizing
with the myrtlewood’s glowing golden color and intricate grain pattern
are a top of Sitka spruce from Alaska, a neck of Pacific Northwest big leaf
maple, and a binding of walnut from Oregon’s Willamette Valley. The
personality of the Northwest conveys itself most powerfully in the fingerboard,
inlaid with authentic Northwest totem images, hand engraved in abalone and
mother-of-pearl. With sound quality and responsiveness to match its visual
beauty, the C25 Northwest is an instrument that will lift your spirit –
and your playing – to new levels.
This is a splendid example of the Breedlove Northwest Classic. A really stunning
Myrtlewood back/side set really sets it apart visually, and it's an exemplory
Breedlove in every other way - tone, playability, fit and finish are all superb.
