Like visiting a tailor, selecting the cloth and cut, the suit crafted to you – Breedlove is offering the CUSTOM MASTERCLASS BUILD-TO-ORDER PROGRAM. You can build your own guitar by selecting the acoustic body style, tonewoods and aesthetics – designing a Masterclass which is distinctly you. The palate of woods are yours to choose – each will be Sound Optimized and Hand Voiced to give you superior sound, balanced tone, and an instrument you will cherish for a lifetime. Handcrafted by our finest Master Craftsmen, your Breedlove Masterclass will be a one-of-a-kind guitar – Your Breedlove! All instruments will include ebony veneer, fretboard and bridge with a 1 3/4” nut width, bone nut and saddle, 6 strings, standard frets and an Ameritage Deluxe Hardshell Case.

Concerto Body Shape: A new body shape with a bigger, louder, more lush sounding guitar with complex, textured tone.

Bearclaw Sitka spruce has a shallow, cross-grain curl that seems to increase cross-grain stiffness in acoustic guitars. Many luthiers feel that it enhances the tone and sustain of spruce. Strong, focused tone with strong fundamental — perfect for flatpicking styles. Usually takes a slightly longer period of playing time to open up. Not so cleanly defined as European spruce but, instead, as warmer, more fundamental, and largely free of overtones. It’s a good, solid sound and bluegrass flatpickers and folk-musicians tend to like it a lot. Looks like a bear has clawed across the grain of the wood. Highly appreciated for its unique patterns, resulting in an eye-catching shimmer. The figure in bearclaw is not actually caused by a bear clawing the tree. While the true cause of the figure is unknown, it is widely assumed to be caused by either genetic mutation or climactic stress.
