No clear-cut woods are used in the Designed in Bend Organic Collections from Breedlove. Owner Tom Bedell has traveled to the world’s key rainforests to personally ensure the responsible harvest practices that result in these forward-looking, light, resonant guitars—instruments you can feel good about playing, that will remind you with every strum that we truly are “All in this Together.”
Simple, supple and naturally beautiful, mahogany is one the world’s enduring tonewoods. The sustainably sourced, individually harvested African mahogany in the Organic Collection grows tall and straight grained in the Congo Basin, the world’s second largest rainforest. It provides warmth, clarity and organ-like sustain behind the ‘vintage’ played-in tone of a torrefied European spruce top—a classic, trusted combination, that, in a traditional non-cutaway concert body just rings, making for a comfortable, easy-playing and versatile all solid wood guitar at a revolutionary price.
