Breedlove Legacy Series

The Breedlove Legacy Series is a shining example of what the top echelon of American guitar luthiers can produce with time and tonal creative licence. Breedlove's highest end series of production instruments, each Legacy acoustic guitar has been expertly designed to exhibit the unique characteristics produced when specific tonewoods are combined with each Breedlove guitar body. Breedlove Legacy Series instruments are real sensory experiences, with a heightened level of attention going into the crafting process to produce world-class acoustic guitars.

Breedlove Legacy Acoustic Guitars - in stock in the UK

Breedlove Guitars is a small acoustic guitar company based in Oregon, USA. Since its birth in the early '90s, it has garnered a following of guitarists who have been allured by the attention to detail and innovation exhibited by its luthiers. We've visited their factory in Bend, Oregon and came away deeply impressed; this is a company which is light on its feet and thinks ahead of the curve in terms of sustainability, materials and guitar engineering.

The Breedlove Legacy Series could be viewed as a production run of the custom guitars Breedlove's luthiers would make, pulling on all their knowledge of tonewoods and body styles. The series is a melting pot of expert ideas, each guitar producing revelatory nuances of tonal colour: Sitka spruce and cocobolo combined with the small-bodied Concertina; redwood and East Indian rosewood combined with the original Breedlove Concert body; Adirondack spruce and koa combined with the big Concerto body, etc. Being Breedlove's 'all out' production series, each Legacy instrument receives an extra level of attention to detail which is really palpable to the discerning guitarist.

Breedlove Legacy Series acoustic guitars are designed to stand out aesthetically, without being garish. Abalone appointments are limited to the top of the body, the rosette, the 12th-fret inlay and the headstock nameplate. Gotoh tuners are used for smoothness and longevity. In terms of electronics, Breedlove has opted for the world-class LR Baggs Anthem system on the Legacy Series. This system combines a unique under-saddle microphone - tuned and placed to practically eliminate feedback and 'boom' - with a piezo pickup, which adds low end without being obtrusive. The piezo plays second fiddle to the mic, a feature unique to the Baggs Anthem system, resulting in the most natural onboard acoustic guitar amplification system you're likely to experience.

Very few Breedlove Legacy instruments are produced, and demand is high. Get in contact with us for up-to-date lead times, and be sure to pop into our Glasgow store and try one out if you get the chance. If you're a left-handed guitarist, Breedlove is able to produce any of its American-made guitars in left-handed at no extra cost. We are able to facilitate this process for our customers. Legacy guitars are supplied with a deluxe hard case.
