Breedlove Stringed Instruments has introduced a new line of all myrtlewood guitars with jaw-dropping aesthetics.
"Myrtlewood is a phenomenal tonewood to have at our disposal," says Colin Besancon, Breedlove Brand Manager, "because the wood is visually stunning and every piece is unique, the tone is a luthier's dream. In short, tonally, if rosewood and maple were to have a baby, it would be myrtlewood. You get all of the accentuated clarity in the high notes without the chime as well as the dynamic presence in the low end."

The Breedlove craftsmen spend the majority of their days working with and around some of the most visually stunning, and sonically profound, instruments in the world. While every USA made instrument is crafted with a high level of dedication and appreciation for the tonewoods - it's quite remarkable to experience the level of passion the craftsmen have for the new myrtlewood instruments.
“Ask ten craftsmen which Oregon LTD is their favorite - and you're sure to get 10 different answers. Every set is completely unique - with varying levels of complexity in the tonal characteristics, figure and pattern. In a world where everything is becoming mass produced, homogenized - the uniqueness of each myrtlewood instrument is, on some level, reassuring that perhaps authenticity is not yet dead,” Besancon adds.
