East Indian rosewood back and sides, Sitka spruce top, Honduran mahogany neck, and African ebony fretboard – the classical recipe for a great six-string flattop acoustic guitar. The Breedlove difference is SOUND through our Sound Optimization™ process. Simply put, your music will sound better when played on a Breedlove Premier. Each Premier guitar comes factory equipped with LR Baggs EAS VTC electronics and a deluxe Breedlove hardshell case. You will sound better, play better and play more on a Breedlove.
In 2016 new regulations restricting the commercial trade in products containing rosewood were formalized among 183 nations participating in the CITES Convention. But you need not be concerned with your Breedlove. We are thorough in our sustainable wood sourcing, chain of custody management and record keeping. An exclusion was agreed upon allowing musicians to travel with their musical instrument with less than 22 pounds of rosewood content (the largest Premier weighs less than five pounds in total) may travel the world freely without restriction. Should you ever want to sell your Premier internationally, you will need a permit, which we can assist you with.
