Description

This is one of the finest Breedlove guitars we've had our hands on. The tone is vibrant and 3-dimensional, with an outstanding full-fidelity sound. The back and sides are gorgeous Indian Rosewood and the top is upgraded with a great piece of Adirondack Spruce. Built in 1997, this big sounding guitar was #56 of 97 made. And it comes with a Fishman Dual Source pickup system that really delivers great tone. The Ed Gerhard Signature model is an outstanding fingerstyle instrument, with the tone and versatility to cover a lot of other musical styles too.

I've sold a few of the Breedlove Ed Gerhard models, and they are consistently great sounding, great playing instruments. The easy playing neck is a breeze to navigate, and the 1 7/8 inch nut width offers a very comfortable feel for fingerstyle.
 
This guitar is like having a piano in your hands. The bass is full and rich and the guitar would best be used for fingerstyle solo playing, although it sounds pretty good strummed too.
