The Breedlove Guitar Company is set to unveil their new Revival Series of dreadnought and orchestral model guitars at the upcoming WinterNAMM show in Anaheim, CA.
Breedlove is known as an award winning design innovator, and has received accolades for such designs as the CM, Classic XII, C25, and the Ed Gerhard Signature Model.
