Breedlove CM Custom Master Class Asymmetrical Concert,Deep
body, sharp Cut
If you have ever seen and advertisement for Breedlove
Guitars it is likely you saw a picture of the uniquely
shaped CM body style with all the inlay they could
tastefully add. The asymmetrical shape of the CM’s
body is the one Breedlove that you can spot immediately
from across the room.
Normally the CM comes with a Western Red Cedar top
and Walnut body. This one was special ordered with
a beautiful Rosewood body that makes it very rare,
and we all know what Rosewood sounds like. This
instrument was further customized with an LR Baggs
Dual Source pickup system.
The neck is solid Mahogany with Gold Gotoh tuners.
The fretboard is ebony with Linear Fusion Inlay.
It has a wide rosette of mother of pearl that offsets
the Western Red Cedar top. The unique shape of the
CM has other advantages. The longer more flexible
bass side and the shorter stiffer treble side provide
a platform to truly brace and voice the instrument
for balance and efficient high performance acoustics.
This instrument absolutely sings! Bright and loud
with loads of natural harmonics, in fact a light
touch on the 12th fret rings out sweet harmonics
that last for days. I play every instrument I get
here so that I can honestly tell you what to expect,
and I almost could not put this one down. A lot
of people will choose this instrument for looks
alone especially with the custom upgrades this one
has, but even blind folded you could easily pick
out this guitar from a room full of others instruments.There
is no mistaking its lush tone
