Breedlove C20 Custom Brazilian Rosewood - Adirondack

I bought her in the summer of 2010 from Chicagoan and Downthread guitarist Teddy Gordon. When she came I and opened the case...Holy J...what an instrument. And the idea came of having a room full of these guitars. I called Teddy to thank him for his great advice and told him about the idea. ´A man must do what a man wants to do´, he said! The guitar shop idea was born. 

This is one of the finest made Breedlove's of all time!! There were only 6 of these made for the 1997 NAMM-show. This one is build by Steve Henderson, one of the founders of the Breedlove Guitar Company. Together with his partners Kim & Larry Breedlove they really had a good time crafting these truly magnificent guitars. Steve designed the C-model based on a classic OM but with a half inch deeper body. The result is a grand concert-sized guitar with a sound that's full, complex and rich in overtones like a dreadnaught. An instrument that's both easy to hold and wonderful to hear.

This beauty has wildly figured Brazilian Rosewood back and sides. It also has a 5A-Adirondack top with a decent amount of bearclawing in it. The combination of those two tonewoods yields an incredibly voluminous tone with a rich, harmonic complexity you just can't get out of other woods. This is a very fine playing instrument as well. The low action provides almost effortless playability. It sounds amazing for fingerpicking with amazing subtlety and nuance with an excellent string separation and dynamics. Flat-picking on it showcases the insane volume you can generate but without sounding harsh or overdriving the top. Other features include Bloodwood binding, Abalone Mermaid inlay on the fretboard, Abalone Rosette, Ebony bridge... This is truly a unique guitar!
