Breedlove time! Saw the masterclass already, so purty. Here's more.

Breedlove Exodus



Expect to spend $75,000 on that puppy.

Breedlove CM Classic



Breedlove Classic XII



I'll be back eventually with some other companies, but I had to get those out there :P

Warning: These Lowdens might be to sexy for you to handle.





A nice front view. I love how the fretboard ends in a little curve.

You can clearly see a little stripe of red. Absolutely stunning.
http://www.guitargal.com/cgi-bin/di...tp=tp2&show=371

This one's listed at $11,000. It's a special edition made of a Redwood top and reclaimed Brazilian Rosewood side/back.


Front view.

Another back view. Beautiful grain pattern.
http://www.guitargal.com/cgi-bin/di...&tp=tp2&show=45

This one is a ziricote side/backed Lowden.


There are a lot more on the site. You can listen to sound clips too!

One of the things I love about Lowden is the fact that they don't drown their guitars in gloss. All the finishes are satin, if I'm not mistaken. But seriously, look at those beauties and tell me you don't want one.

EDIT: amidoinitrite?

Seriously. That first one is Redwood top & Brazilian Rosewood side/back. You couldn't get better combination if you tried. WIN. That's what the first one is.

Didn't I tell you before how much I loved rosewood? Anything redwood is most definitely win. Best top wood in my eyes. However, I really would love to try a Redwood/Ziricote back/sides combo, maybe even Redwood/Striped Ebony. Oh my.

That guitar would be pure win....

Dude, what about a guitar made of all ebony? Like, black ebony? That would be the coolest gloss black guitar ever made!

FL3 Wins this one so hard. Elegant but not over the top and distracting like some of the others.

Also, the new PRS acoustics.






Also, a little less known to the masses but Lowden makes some REALLY nice acoustics.

In order for me to graduate from my program(which is hospitality & tourism management), I have to work 1600 hours in the hospitality industry. Assuming it's $10/hr, my total will come to at least $16000(since I'll probably be working more than 1600 hours anyway). Lowden's starting price is $4000 or so. Hopefully, I'll be able to buy one after I graduate.

@soul_power - Have you heard anything about how the PRS acoustic guitars sound? Looks pretty good to me.

Dude, my thought when I saw read "PRS acoustic" was "Uh oh, looks like we have another reputable electric company about to ruin their reputation with a crappy acoustic."

And then I saw the guitar. Now my thought is "Uh oh, looks like Epiphone/Gibson might have some competition now for best acoustics from a primarily electric company."
