The dramatic, asymmetrical look of the Breedlove CM is the perfect encapsulation of the company's forward-thinking, boundary-pushing lutherie philosophy. Taking its template from their mid-sized Concert model, the slightly wider 15-3/8" lower bout provides a powerful bass, while the unusual upper bout shapes the trebles into a clear, clean sound. This Custom CM/E, which comes with a pre-installed L.R. Baggs pickup, has a bearclaw Sitka spruce top and Macassar ebony back and sides. Warm, dark, and rich in lingering overtones, this is undoubtedly the guitar for anyone who loves open alternate tunings. Breedlove's winged, pin-less bridge and sparkling abalone add the perfect touch to this modern guitar. And let's not ignore the dragon in the room. With a long body that continues off the fretboard and onto the neck, this maple, abalone and MOP dragon might command just as much attention as the guitar itself. The condition of this 2001 model is excellent.
