Breedlove Guitar Company Introduces Revival Series


December 1, 2004

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. The new Revival Series is an expansion of the Breedlove Custom Shop offerings. This new addition to the Breedlove stable will boast eight distinct models featuring both traditional tones and designs.

All of the Revival Series guitars will be handmade at the Breedlove Custom Shop in Bend, OR, USA, and feature “pre-war” scalloped X-bracing, a modified “V” neck carve, and an antique, hand-rubbed, semi-gloss finish, to provide a vintage feel and tone.
