If you have ever seen and advertisement for Breedlove Guitars it is likely you saw a picture of the uniquely shaped CM body style with all the inlay they could tastefully add. The asymmetrical shape of the CM’s body is the one Breedlove that you can spot immediately from across the room.
Normally the CM comes with a Western Red Cedar top and Walnut body. This one was special ordered with a beautiful highly figured Myrtlewood body that makes it very rare. We added a great Engelmann Spruce top and bound it in contrasting Flamed Koa to make a rare beautiful CM that sounds wonderful.
The neck is solid Mahogany with Gold Gotoh tuners. The fretboard is ebony with Off-Set Dot Inlay. It has a wide rosette of mother of pearl that offsets the clean Engelmann Spruce top. The unique shape of the CM has other advantages. The longer more flexible bass side and the shorter stiffer treble side provide a platform to truly brace and voice the instrument for balance and efficient high performance acoustics.
This instrument absolutely sings! Bright and loud with loads of natural harmonics, in fact a light touch on the 12th fret rings out sweet harmonics that last for days. I play every instrument I get here so that I can honestly tell you what to expect, and I almost could not put this one down. A lot of people will choose this instrument for looks alone especially with the custom upgrades this one has, but even blind folded you could easily pick out this guitar from a room full of others instruments. There is no mistaking its lush tone.
So if you are a fan of the Breedlove CM model or just appreciate a beautifully crafted instrument, this Custom CM in highly figured Myrtle and Engelmann Spruce and Koa is a uniquely beautiful example.
