Breedlove has been building tomorrow’s guitars today since 1990 when Larry Breedlove and Steve Henderson founded the company. With the goal of superior sound and sustainable exotic tonewoods, Breedlove has the right guitar for you, at the right time in your musical journey. You will sound better, play better and play more with a Breedlove. Blues Angel Music has a great selection of Breedlove guitars in Pensacola and online.
Two Old Hippies, the company founded by Tom and Molly Bedell, bought Breedlove in 2010. American production of Bedell and Breedlove guitars is currently based in Bend, Oregon. In true “old hippie” fashion, key to the Breedlove Difference today is the concept of Sound Optimization, which starts at the tree and carries through to your fingertips. It’s a carefully monitored process that takes into account the specific densities of discrete wood sets, top and back frequency separation, hand voicing, individual playing styles, revolutionary body shapes and so much more.
Unlike many of the major American guitar makers, instruments crafted at the Breedlove USA workshop are still made largely by hand, with nearly three dozen craftspeople, many players themselves, putting their all into every guitar they touch.
“We’re able to build 2,000 guitars a year here in Bend,” Bedell says, “and every one is uniquely dimensioned to whatever the characteristic of that wood is, and whatever we want that instrument to play like and sound like. We couldn’t do that if we didn’t hand build every guitar. It would be impossible.”
