Sitka Spruce Top
Balance Fingerboard Inlay
Fishman Matrix Natural 1 Pickup
Ever try a Breedlove Jumbo? If the bigger lower bout width is something you
can work with, you'll get a lot of power and tone for your trouble. And this
Breedlove J25 Jumbo will deliver on the jumbo promise.
This J25 sports a beautiful Walnut back/side set, a Sitka Spruce top, and
Breedlove's Balance inlay on an Ebony fingerboard. A "tortoise-shell"
pickguard gives the guitar some tidy, practical top protection without detracting
from the Breedlove aesthetic.
This instrument is incredibly well made (like all Breedloves) and has excellent
tone - you get a powerful response to meaty pick attack, but this guitar shines
even when strummed quietly. The tone is complex but in control - Walnut tends
to let the top wood sing without a lot of sympathetic vibration. It takes
very little power to get this guitar going, but once it's going, you've got
lots of headroom too. So pick lightly late at night, or lay into it in the
middle of your next Bluegrass jam... and love it either way.
