Just saw the new Premier series. Looks like a cheaper replacement for the American series. I wonder why they eliminated the zig-zay bridge, red cedar top, and the herringbone option. These just don't…Continue

Welcome to the group, James.  Sounds like some nice guitars there!  I too would enjoy the factory tour.

Hi, I missed the start up of this group, but glad to have found it. I have two Breedloves, a 2006 Atlas AC 25 SR Plus, which after being away for 35 years, I thought would be a decent start up guitar, and a 2008 Focus SE Dread, Rosewood with Adirondack top. They had lessened the Atlas line to laminate shortly after I purchased mine, but the one I have is, especially after the 7 years of aging, kind of amazing for a cheaper guitar, not that cheap at a grand, but even new, it beat everything in the store in it's price range. Pretty nice for my travel guitar! The Focus has chewed most I've ever compared it to! The depth of sound, bass, overall tone and playability are pretty superb, to me. I've always wanted a Martin, go in every store I find and try them, but I've only found one in that 7 years that I liked as much and missed the sale. That was an HD28  with a perfect set up and it was still quite a bit harder to play and would have taken a few years to open up to have the beautiful timbre of the Focus. That's what I've found. Would love to get back to Bend and tour the factory! Jim

Getting settled in with the Oregon series concert size I picked up a while ago. It is a limited edition -- a C20-SMYR. I am not sure what the R designation means as opposed to the standard model SMYE. The guitar does have some unique features ... sunburst top, gold hardware, dual source electronics and stained back, sides and neck.

And the tone ... tone for days. A buddy came by and was playing it a while Sunday night, and it sounds really good from in front. One really surprising thing is the bass response you get from this smaller body. As a person with a more compact frame, a smaller guitar is important to me. But you don't seem to give up low end with this one. It just kills Satna Cruz and other bigger dollar guitars I had played. Just a remarkable instrument.

 

It handles gentle playing very well, putting forth a warm and complex tone with a light touch. But if you hammer on it with a flat pick, it just gets lound and fat.

 

Smiling really big these days ...
