Breedlove Pacific

Sitka Spruce Top
Quilted Maple Back & Sides
Abalone Top Purfling
Sea Leaves Inlay

The Breedlove Pacific... Pacific Northwest guitar-building at its finest, with materials and themes selected to reflect the best of this region. This is the older style Pacific - a shallow-body Concert, with sharp cutaway, beautiful flamed Maple back with quilted maple sides, Maple neck, Master Class Black Binding, Sitka Spruce Top, Abalone "Sea Leaves" Inlay, Abalone Top Purfling and ebony buttons on chrome Grover tuners.

If you've followed my auctions or have read a lot of my listings since I started this little company, you'll know that I am particularly partial to the Breedlove C12. And when there's a Maple back and sides on there, well, I am just not sure if it gets any better! And this C12 Pacific simpy reinforces that excitement in me. It has a nice, even response with surprising resonance in the bass for a small-bodied instrument. It looks like a work of art, but it's truly a tool on which you can make your own art, and that's going to be true for most styles of play save for the very heaviest of strummers.
