Introduced in 1995, the Custom Masterclass Northwest Classic was one of Breedlove’s early flagship models, based on tonewoods indigenous to Breedlove’s beloved Pacific Northwest and decorated with exquisite Inuit fretboard inlays.
The instrument’s Oregon myrtlewood back and sides proved a revelation, with Breedlove again leading the way in acoustic guitar development, establishing a powerful new voice blending the best sonic elements of rosewood, mahogany and maple.
Now, a King salmon, rendered in myrtle, jumps across the twelfth fret, splashing back into the Deschutes River as it wends its way toward Bend, a symbol of Breedlove’s commitment to preserving the earth while providing musicians with superior sounding, comfortable, easy-playing, beautiful instruments.
Handcrafted and hand voiced from clear-cut free, sustainable 3A Sitka spruce and highly figured myrtlewood, trimmed with figured walnut binding and myrtlewood appointments, this Sound Optimized Masterclass limited edition - celebrating Breedlove's history of innovation - is a dazzling display of American guitar artistry. An acoustic electric powerhouse, the soft cutaway Northwest Classic features a long sustaining hard rock maple neck, Tusq nut and saddle, ebony fretboard and winged bridge, gold hardware, and comes equipped with LR Baggs Anthem electronics and a custom Ameritage case.
