I played with my first Breedlove last Saturday. I needed some more strings, so I packed up the kid, and the wife and I journeyed out to Guitar Center on Route. 22 (This is a haven area, because literally across the street from Guitar Center is a Sam Ash). I walked in their acoustic section (the first room, with the cheap $500.00 guitars) and played some Martins and Takamines.
I then ventured into the next room. The expensive guitars. The guitars that I can’t afford. My wife said, “Oh, you should try this one.” It was a Breedlove. $2300, used. I played that thing for the longest I’ve played a strange guitar in a guitar shop. It plays so smooth, and sounds so nice, that it was instant love.
Sadly, I had to leave it behind. Suddenly my D-03 feels like a redheaded stepkid. I didn’t even put the new strings on the Larivee after playing the more superior Breedlove. I don’t have $2300 to put into such a beautiful piece of art.
I wanted to show my wife my next birthday gift:
They were out of stock. Actually, they were confused, and thought I meant the Line 6 Pocket Pod. Nope. I have the Line 6 Toneport UX2. I enjoy it, but it requires a computer wherever you go. The Pocket Pod is mobile, but I know that Korg has a great reputation.
