The Oregon Series is designed to efficiently use locally available resources while still impressing guitarists who appreciate tone and looks.

The guitars they produce help in supporting local certified wood vendors, and they do that while providing guitarists with exotic tonewood equipped quality instruments.

Being located where Myrtlewood is abundant, Breedlove is familiar with the exotic wood's balanced tone, and their over 20 years of experience helps them in using Myrtlewood to produce guitars that are "not too bright and not too dark". It is said to combine the best sonic qualities of maple, walnut and mahogany into a unique sound all its own.

Aside from using Myrtlewood, the Oregon series uses traditional Sitka Spruce top which compliments the sound and look of the guitar. The neck is crafted from Big Leaf Maple with a great looking Ebony fretboard for improved articulation and tone depth.

The Orchestra and Dreadnought models feature traditional-inspired bracing while Breedlove designed the Concert model with a new bracing to maximize projection, balance and clarity. All the guitars feature full gloss tops and the Myrtlewood back and sides are hand-rubbed.

The Breedlove Oregon Series Guitars are hand made in the USA, below you can watch a quick tour of their factory in Bend, Oregon:

Adding a touch of modern flexibility and efficiency, these guitars are equipped with Fishman Ultra-Tone electronics for plugging into a PA or amplifier.

Breedlove suggests a retail price of $1,999, but the U.S.A. made Oregon Series Guitars is expected to hit the streets at around $1,499.
