Solid European spruce top delivers top-notch tone. Built for heavy strumming with a big,bold sound. . Built with "EcoTonewood technology" which is a nice way of saying using sustainable methods to build a guitar that still sounds good. There's a whole load of stuff about that and the "Play Style System" on Breedlove's website. Long story short: it's a toneful guitar built solid that you can brag to your friends and your spouse that you bought it because you care about the planet,, but you also have a discerning ear for good tone.

This guitar can not be sold as new due to the guitar being professionally refurbished by MIRC in Franklin, TN. The original serial number has been replaced with a new serial number to track the guitar through MIRCs system. It has also been stamped "used" on the back of the headstock. There are no cosmetic issues and no visible signs of repair.
This guitar has been professionally set up by one of MIRC's top-notch techs. Once it arrived in our shop, it was tweaked just a bit more. Every player is different and some may want to change the setup to reflect their own playing style. When buying any guitar online, it is always wise to factor in the cost of having the instrument set up by a local tech to meet your own preferences.
This guitar has never been owned by a consumer. There is no fret wear, sweat stains, or weird smell to worry about. It has traveled from the factory that manufactured it to the company that ordered it to MIRC, where it was refurbished, to our shop. The customer who buys it from us will be the first consumer to own it.
The differences between buying a refurbished guitar and a new guitar are the warranty (there is no factory warranty on the guitar--it has the same risks associated with buying a used guitar), the new serial number, and THE PRICE. We feel the benefits of having an expert tech assess, repair, and thoroughly set up the guitar along with the reduced price far overshadow the lack of a factory warranty. Please contact us with any questions about refurbished guitars in general or this guitar specifically.
