Presenting the Breedlove Journey Fingerstyle (FS) Brazilian Rosewood Limited Edition
Over 50 years ago a few Brazilian rosewood logs were shipped from NE Brazil to a village just outside of Madrid, Spain. It was stored in an open air warehouse for a couple decades and then sawn into tonewood sets, stickered and left to season for decades more. Brazilian rosewood has long been regarded as the pinnacle of all tonewoods for it's amazing ability to resonate deep, rich, powerful bass notes while still shimmering with the treble tones. And the half century natural aging of this Brazilian collection has given Breedlove the cream of the crop. All legally documented.
Our friends at Breedlove are building two limited edition models of 50 each for introduction in January 2016 with the apt names of the Breedlove Journey and the Breedlove Journey FS. These concert instruments are designed for completely different playing styles and sound, confirming our mastery of Distinctively Crafted Sound.
The Breedlove Journey FS Concert is a true sweetheart, designed for fingerstyle play to deliver note-for-note warmth and beautiful sound. This limited edition presents the perfection of the Breedlove journey. Breedlove concert body fingerstyle guitars are well known for their tonal spectrum and volume balance. Innovations like graduated tops, the Breedlove bridge truss system, asymmetrical headstocks and the winged pinless bridges have all contributed to the unique Breedlove fingerstyle sound. With the Breedlove Journey FS we have gone to two extremes to create our most incredible fingerstyle guitar yet. The tops are salvaged redwood. With Breedlove's bridge truss system we can finesse the graduation and thinness of the redwood tops for amazing resonance while still supporting the integrity of the tops. This allows the redwood to resonate longer allowing each note to swell and deliver a warmth that is rich and beautiful to the ear. Pairing this with the our aged Brazilian rosewood which is the world's most efficient tone wood for reflecting the lower energy bass notes in balance with the higher energy treble tones, the ensuing voice of the instrument is one of which all other acoustics will be judged.
