If you’ve played a Breedlove Jumbo, you know it’s a powerful experience: Sound feels sonically propelled by the movement of so much air inside the body. These bodies provide a big bass response, and a sound that Breedlove Jumbo devotees describe reverently as “grand-piano like.” Breedlove Jumbos rise above the competition in their clarity and expressiveness due to their graduated tops, which add nuance to the tonal spectrum without losing volume.

TOP WOOD

Cedar produces wonderful tones with a light touch, therefore it’s great for fingerstyle playing. If you are a fingerstyle player, then you will love the way this guitar amplifies the sound and tone. This tonewood usually has a reddish and/or brown color, which makes the guitars very attractive. The color can range from very darker to much lighter in tone, so you have a wide variety of aesthetic options to choose from. This tonewood has a smooth textured surface that looks even more lustrous after finishing.

BACK AND SIDE WOOD

Ovangkol is a plentiful evergreen that grows in Western Africa. It achieves a height of 100 – 150 feet and a base diameter around three feet, with long fruit pods for seeds. Its scientific name is Guiborourtia ehie, in the same family as bubinga. It is a beautiful tonewood, often with interwoven colorful grain patters. Interestingly, its musical characteristics are almost identical to East Indian rosewood. Specific Gravity: 0.82 ovangkol, 0.83 East Indian rosewood; pounds per cubic feet: 52 ovangkol, 51 East Indian rosewood. Like rosewood, ovangkol efficiently projects bass tones resulting in a rich full sound.

BREEDLOVE BRIDGE TRUSS

The Breedlove Bridge Truss (BBT) reduces tension on the soundboard of the guitar, so the top wood is able to vibrate more freely, producing remarkable sustain, balance, and clarity. The BBT also allows for a thinner graduated top, thereby allowing Breedlove craftsmen to bring out the optimal sound from the top wood without sacrificing structural stability. Relieving much of the string tension from the bridge prevents “bridge belly,” ensuring top stability for decades. Guitar strings can exert up to 230 pounds of pull from the nut to the bridge. Traditional methods for preventing top bowing at the bridge usually involve heavy internal bracing and thicker tops. The BBT compensates for this pressure in an innovative way: The BBT is mounted to the bridge from the inside and is connected into the tail block of the guitar, pulling downward on the underside of the bridge to distribute some of the tension, relieving pressure on the top. The resulting tonal effect on BBT-equipped guitars is more resonance and livelier sound with enhanced overtones.

BREEDLOVE PINLESS BRIDGE

The Breedlove Pinless Bridge helps maintain the integrity of the top by eliminating the need for six drilled string holes. The fewer holes in your soundboard, the more evenly the sound wave can move across the interior, without any loss of energy. The Breedlove Pinless Bridge also provides a gentler string-break angle from the bridge to the top of the saddle, reducing saddle strain. This innovative bridge also makes string changes a breeze, especially on 12 strings. Plus, you’ll never again have to worry about lost, worn-out, or broken bridge pins.

BREEDLOVE NECK

Breedlove guitars feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish also contributes to ideal playability. The labour-intensive finish process includes precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.
