Upgraded for 2016. For the performing artist seeking full sound with pronounced bass and midrange projection, the Stage Dreadnought is built on the original Breedlove rounded dreadnought shape with all solid tonewoods. The rosewood back and sides are paired with a Sitka spruce top to provide a distinct full-bodied voice sound with pronounced bass and midrange projection. The electronics let you control your sound and translate the nuances of your playing to your audience, and the Breedlove semi-gloss neck allows for hours of comfortable play so you can focus on your performance. Designed, engineered, and quality-controlled in Bend, Oregon, U.S.A. Crafted in China. Body Shape
Breedlove set out to enhance the traditional dreadnought sound, and the results are evident. If you’re inspired by the familiarity of a dread, but are looking for more nuance and richness than usual, the Breedlove Dreadnought delivers. The shape is slightly more rounded than traditional dreadnoughts and produces beautifully full, punchy, and articulate tones. It also provides excellent projection and articulation, so it excels in any ensemble. The hand-graduated top provides the balance and clarity that make this one of the most innovative and expressive-sounding dreadnoughts on the market.Breedlove Neck
Breedlove guitar necks 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 labor-intensive finish process includes precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.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.
