Breedlove 2006 Calendar II, J22 Custom

This is the second guitar that emerged as part of Breedlove's 2006 Calendar series. It is hands down one of my favorite models from that limited edition series, and the competition was tough that year!

This is a Breedlove J22, with a deep body, and sharp cutaway. This awesome Jumbo features Master Class Cocobolo binding, as well as a Cocobolo back strip. The back and sides are Walnut, and the top is of Cedar with a Spoked Abalone Rosette. Neck is walnut, with an " Art Nouveau" fingerboard inlay done in Cocobolo and bordered in Abalone.

This guitar is used, but in mint condition. It has a fantastic, powerful tone - when I think of the signature Breedlove jumbo sound, this guitar has the sound that I hear in my head. Deep and rich, powerful, and also very balanced. Great for strumming and picking. The Cedar top gives a warm harmonic complexity, but there's plenty of headroom for all but the most aggressive styles of play.
