This is a used instrument that is fully functional. Back of the headstock is stamped "used."
The Breedlove Organic Performer Series is seriously stage ready, with Natural Sound electronics revving under the hood of an “aged” European spruce top and soft cutaways offering access to every fret. African mahogany back, sides and neck impart both a warmth and a cutting power; clarified by the bright, dynamic brilliance of an African ebony bridge and fingerboard. A high gloss Bourbon finish is durable—shimmering in the lights—and thin enough to express every emotion you send through the strings. Gold frets and tuners, tortoise color binding and simple but stunning brass inlays complete the look, keeping you in tune and ready to rock. Whether a touring pro looking for a roadworthy axe or a YouTube sensation, your Performer is waiting.
About the Organic Collection
Great sound. No clear-cut woods.
The result of a pioneering three-year journey, The Organic Collection from Breedlove offers four impressive series of sustainably-sourced, all-solid-wood acoustic/electric guitars at revolutionary prices.
Now you can afford the guitar you deserve.
“We’re making tomorrow’s guitars today,” beams Tom Bedell, whose whole earth philosophy and passion for high quality sound is the driving force behind The Organic Collection, designed in Bend, Oregon, and featuring individually-harvested FSC-certified exotic tonewoods like European spruce—torrefied at the source in the Swiss Alps—and African mahogany and ebony. Native Oregon myrtlewood is carefully salvaged and culled from the Pacific coast. No synthetic materials are used, and half the glue of traditional laminates means a lighter, more responsive instrument with dynamic range, tone and sustain rivaling other builder’s high end models.
Every entry in The Organic Collection features exacting top and back graduations informed by Breedlove’s careful research; a thin UV finish; Natural Sound electronics with soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls; easy-to-maintain pinless bridges; and classic Breedlove playability.
Torrefaction makes the thermally “aged” spruce tops sing as though they’ve been played for thirty years and proves more resistant to changes in temperature and humidity.
The Organic Collection from Breedlove—it’s the natural path to uninhibited solid sound.
