New 12-String, Travel and Bass guitars from Breedlove
Breedlove expands their SolidTop Passport series with a new 12-string, Travel and bass guitar, all set for a January 1, 2013 release.
These new instruments will have the same combination of affordability and custom design as their other Passport series guitars.
Breedlove's newest instruments include the C200/SMe-T Travel guitar, the B350/SMe-4 Bass guitar and the C250/SMe-12 12-String guitar. These new instruments will broaden the reach of Breedlove's more affordable Passport series. This time they are catering to guitarists on-the-go, 12-string players and even bassists.
The Breedlove C250/SMe-12 is a 12-String guitar that offers boutique quality in a relatively affordable package. It comes with the same playability and tone as its more expensive 12-string Breedlove counterparts. To help alleviate the stress on the guitar top, the C250/SMe-12 is equipped with Breedlove's Bridge Truss system.

Targeting wayfarer guitarists, the new Breedlove C200/SMe-T travel guitar comes with a 22.75" scale and comes with standard EADGBE tuning. Its smaller frame is designed for travelling, but it will also work great as a couch guitar, which you can easily get and store.
The B350/SMe-4 Acoustic Bass appeals to low register shredders, with a comfortable 32" scale and fast playing neck. It also comes with Breedlove's unique bridge truss design which supports the bridge, helps relax the top and improves sustain.
All three instruments will have solid Sitka spruce tops paired with Sapele mahogany back and sides. The necks on each of them will feature East Indian rosewood fretboard. For plugging into a PA or an amplifier, the new Passport series guitars will come with Breedlove VTC electronics that come complete with an onboard tuner.
The C200/SMe-T travel guitar is expected to have a street price of $399, while the C250/SMe-12 12-string guitar and the B350/SMe-4 bass are both expected to hit the streets with a price of $599. All three instruments come with a gig bag.
Complete specifications will be available once the guitars hit the stores on January 1, 2013.
