2008 marks two milestones for the Breedlove Guitar Company. It is
Kim Breedlove’s 35th Anniversary as a luthier and it is the 5th
Anniversary of the Atlas Series of Acoustic Guitars.
Before the Atlas Series, Breedlove was a custom shop guitar manufacturer only. In 2003 the Atlas line was launched with the intention of incorporating high-end custom features into a production line.
The newly voiced instruments feature the all new L.R. Bagg’s Stage Pro Element pickup with chromatic tuner. We worked with Lloyd Baggs for over 5 years developing this pickup to be the best performing on-board pickup of its kind. Stylish L.R. Baggs Stage Pro controls include volume, EQ, notch, phase and fast battery access highly sought after by today’s touring musicians. Lloyd Baggs explains, “The sound and combined performance features were previously unattainable, until now.”
Each new Atlas Series name (Stage, Studio, Solo, and Retro) implies the purpose of each design. The Stage, Studio and Solo models are all braced for balance and reinforced with the bridge truss to maximize sustain and dynamics. The Retro models offer balance and power.
Breedlove Atlas Series instruments are designed and engineered by Kim Breedlove and are quality assured at our Custom Shop in Bend, Oregon.
Breedlove Passport Series guitars are designed for ultimate
portability without tonal sacrifice. These comfortable, easy to play
instruments are the perfect choice for the musician on the move.
There are mini-Travel guitars (look for the T at the end of the model number) as well as Full Scale (FS) instruments. FS models have a 25.5" scale and a slightly down-sized body, while mini-Travel instruments have a mini body, a short scale, and are tuned up a fourth from standard. Gig bags are included.
