Breedlove now extends their successful Mark Series Electric Guitar line with the new Mark II & IV models. Although they come with different body shapes than the Mark I they are intended to be lower priced models but still fully customizable.
The new Mark VI is a single cutaway solid body design that can be optionally chambered and voiced as this one has been reducing its weight to a very manageable 6 pounds. It comes standard with Seymour Duncan Phat Cat or 59 Model Humbucker pickups. This guitar was upgrade to include a Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates pickup in the bridge position to go along with the Phat Cat pickup in the neck slot.
The body is finished in an Opaque Candy Apple Red Gloss with Crushed diamond dust mixed in. The neck is finished with the same Candy Apple Red but has been buffed down to remove the sheen giving it an almost iridescent look which off sets the look of the body wonderfully. It is equipped with a Chrome Tone Pro bridge and upgraded Gotoh 510 tuners. The finger board is Ebony with off set dot position markers.
The Mark IV is the latest edition in the Mark Series of Electric guitars from Breedlove and this one is their first one. It is a great sounding a even greater looking guitar.
