Description

Each Solo guitar features a Side Monitor Soundhole that practically places your ears in the crowd while you play, without reducing the forward sound projection of your song. The Solo takes away the annoyance of not being able to hear yourself play. For the tops, we went for a warm, substantial red cedar sound. African ovangkol and ebony have replaced the Indian rosewood that was formerly utilized. Ovangkol is a tropical West African hardwood with a specific gravity (density) close to that of Indian rosewood. African ebony is considerably better than rosewood for fretboards and bridges. The Solo Series features a wide range of instruments. Each of these instruments can create warm, blooming complex notes thanks to the Breedlove Bridge Truss and red cedar tops, making songwriting and performance easier. LR Bags EAS VTC electronics and a luxury thick cushioned Gig Bag come standard on every instrument. With the Side Monitor Soundhole, a Breedlove’s famous Solo Concert brings your music directly to your ear. The warmth of red cedar and the bass accent of ovangkol provide a balanced tone with warm note-for-note clarity. The Solo Concert allows you to be more connected to your music, whether you’re creating on a noisy tour bus or need to hear your performing on stage.

The Breedlove Solo Concert’s second soundhole, ultra-playable neck, superb electronics, outstanding tone, and overall feel of excellence will no doubt appeal to professional musicians and frequent gigging guitarists. As a consequence of this, as well as the fact that they manage to keep the price low, it’s become one of our favorites in the sub-$1000 category.

  1. Froneman Enterprise

    For less than the price of the guitar alone, I was able to purchase this instrument with its accessories bundle. So, let’s just get this out of the way: the accessories, with the exception of the cleaning cloth, are all terrible. Within an hour of usage, the stand had broken.

    The guitar now. It’s a Breedlove, of course. The action level is quite high right out of the gate. With 120 grit sandpaper, I removed 2.25mm off the bridge and roughly a 180 turn of neck relief with the truss rod. At the first fret, the action is now 0.5mm, and at the twelfth fret, it’s 2.25mm. There are no buzzes. The cedar top adds a nice mellow tone. It’s a good match for my more costly Taylors.

    It’s a fantastic guitar, but be prepared to handle the setup yourself or spend $60 to have it done by a local luthier. (This is true of 90% of all manufactured guitars.) A string ruler, 120 sandpaper, and patience are all you’ll need. That much (bone) bridge took me an hour and a half to sand away. šŸ™‚

    This sturdy top, at a fantastic price, has more volume than many tops twice its size! The performer can use the additional sound hole as a built-in monitor. And everything arrived with personal Breedlove inspections and warranties, as well as a lovely firm/softshell backpack bag! Amazon and the Breedlove crew deserve kudos!
