We recently got word from the Breedlove folks that a new CM they were building for us was exceptional. The Breedlove guys told us this guitar sounded amazing, and coming from a bunch of people who see guitars all day long this was high praise indeed. We had sold the last CM in Rosewood and Sitka almost immediately so we ordered another.
The Breedlove CM model is one of their most beautiful and best sounding acoustic guitars found anywhere. From its asymmetrical shape to its heralded tone few other instruments stir the imagination as much.
This CM Custom comes with a Sitka Spruce top and Rosewood body instead of the standard Walnut/Cedar combination. It has Master Class Ivoroid bindings that accent the Rosewood nicely. It comes with a solid Mahogany neck equipped with Chrome Gotoh tuners. The Ebony fret board has off set Dots for position markers. The Sitka top has Black White Black top purfling and a Master Class Abalone Rosette.
If you are a fan of the sound and shape of the Breedlove CM, this wood combination will thrill you with it’s over all sound and fantastic tone. The CM shape always adds strong bass and even mid range, but the Rosewood is taken to new heights on this guitar. The neck has wonderfully fast action with easy access to the higher frets.
HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW 10/29/2007:
What do I love - Hard to know where to start. Visually it's beautiful. Playing it is a dream and once it "fits" you will want to play no other instrument. It plays like no other guitar and feels like no other guitar and sounds like no other as well. It's a breed(love) apart from it's peers. I love the way she plays. Physically a perfect fit for me. Compared to others - There is no other point of comparison. There just isn't.
HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW: 03/17/2006
I have been playing guitar for over four years now, and I own a variety of musical instruments and gear. The CM is by far the nicest thing I own. It's a great recording guitar and good for more formal concerts. I pretty much love this guitar. If anything were to ever happen to it I would be extremely devastated. I would definitely try to replace it with the same model.
