For the versatile performer-collector seeking the expansive, super warm elegant sound of Sitka spruce and centuries old Brazilian Rosewood, all in the Auditorium body, which is ideal for larger venues. The Masterclass Auditorium Brazilian is an instrument that defies its genre. It can accommodate an array of alternate tunings while still offering accentuated hues across its tonal palette, for a voice that is both elegant and earthy. The Sitka Spruce top provides rich overtones, full of nuance and tonal color, which combines beautifully with the solid bass response and dynamic high end of the Old Growth, beautifully grained Brazilian Rosewood. For a limited time, Breedlove is offering the upgrade of a Brazilian Rosewood back and sides for just $1,000 additional. This treasured wood is the prodigy of all music woods. It responds to lower energy bass frequencies with power and enthusiasm and rejoices in the higher energy treble notes. There is a timbre, an energy, an incredible aliveness that comes from the instruments we are crafting with this aged, cured Brazilian Rosewood. And to live up to the Masterclass standards, Breedlove Master Class Luthiers selected tone wood sets from their uniquely figured collection, harvested over a half century ago. Naturally cured over decades, the sap crystalized, the stress in the wood relaxed, and the cellulose matured between the annual growth fibers…nature took its course of turning tone wood into incredible music wood. All Breedlove Brazilian Rosewood was legally harvested and is fully documented. With permits, these instruments can travel and be re-conveyed throughout the world. It was acquired from the Spanish family that owned & properly stored it since the early 1950's. The generous specs include:
