Breedlove Focus Dreadnought

Sitka Spruce Top
Rosewood Back/Sides
Fishman Prefix Pro Blender
Soft Cutaway, Deep Body


The Breedlove Focus Dreadnought.... this popular Breedlove Dread model has a strong, full voice, but with the tonal complexity that Breedlove is known for. Outfitted with an "S" series Performance Package, the Focus Dreadnought features a Sitka Spruce Top, East Indian Rosewood Back and Sides, Black Bound Body and Neck with Decorative Top Purfling, Ebony Fingerboard and Peghead Overlay, Breedlove Focus Inlay, Fishman Prefix Pro Blender System, and D'Addario EXP Medium Gauge Strings.

This Breedlove Dreadnought has a mellow but rich tone - there's plenty of projection for flat picking styles and rock and roll strumming, but also a lot of complexity for quieter moments and fingerstylists.

This instrument was bought back from dealer stock by Breedlove, inspected and set-up to factory specifications, and sent straight to Imagine Guitars. Like all Tried and True Breedlove instruments I carry, it is covered by a one year Breedlove warranty. Includes hardshell case as pictured.

Current retail price for a comparable new Focus Dreadnought would be $3,199.00.

Imagine Guitars is an authorized Breedlove dealer specializing in "Tried and True™" Breedlove Instruments. Normally, this means instruments that have been inspected and returned to original factory specifications by Breedlove, and come with a Breedlove One Year Warranty.


1. A Message for New Users

Everybody's a new user at some point, but all of the non-paying bidders I have encountered so far have all been new users (people with 0 to 3 feedback entries). Winning an item and then not paying for it is costly for me, and more importantly, it consumes my time. So please understand that your bid is a legally binding commitment, and don't bid if you are not serious about buying the item in question.

So... BEFORE you bid, please take a moment to make sure you are ready to buy this item for a price up to and including the amount of your maximum bid. If you can't answer that question with a resounding "YES!", please do not bid. It is as simple as that.

If you bid, win, and then don't follow through, you're going to get reported to ebay (a necessary step in the drawn-out process of recouping my selling fees), and you're going to get negative feedback.

2. Payment Terms

Payment is accepted in the following forms: Visa/Mastercard (U.S. only), Paypal, Postal Money Order (US or International), Cashier's Check or Bank Draft. I do not accept COD or Western Union - absolutely no exceptions! Payment in full, including all shipping and insurance charges, is due within 3 days of auction close if paying by Paypal, and within 7 days of auction close if paying by other means.

3. International Bidders

If you are outside the United States, YOU MUST CONTACT ME PRIOR TO BIDDING and provide your name, ebay I.D., and some sort of contact information. I will not ship to an international destination unless you contact me prior to bidding and I give you explicit permission to bid via email prior to auction close. Failure to do so will result in bid cancellation. I do not wish to bar the populations of entire countries from bidding on my items, but by the same token, don't ask if I will ship a guitar to Indonesia with payment by direct credit card - if I think it sounds fishy, it's not happening!

4. Shipping

Buyer pays actual charges for shipping and insurance (required) via UPS. There is no handling charge, no box charge, no B.S. Instrument will ship in a Breedlove factory shipping box.

5. Second Chances

If you are interested in this instrument, be sure to place a bid. If the high bidder fails to close the deal, I will contact other bidders in order of bid amount to discuss purchase of this instrument via the ebay "Second Chance Offer" system.

6. Sales Tax

Residents of the State of Washington, USA must pay 7.7% sales tax on total purchase price including shipping.

7. In Conclusion...

Thanks for reading the terms. Please email me prior to bidding if you have questions. Thanks, and good luck!
