Breedlove Guitars Unveils Premier Series

The Premier Series includes four body shapes: auditorium, concert, dreadnought, and jumbo.

Bend, OR (December 18, 2013) -- The Premier series is a great American value. Made of time-tested wood sets and Breedlove’s original designs it offers all the benefits of distinctively crafted sound. With prices ranging from $1,699 - $1,999 the Premier series offers an auditorium, concert, dreadnought, and jumbo body shape with both a solid East Indian rosewood and solid Honduran mahogany back and side option. It also offers a 12-string variety. The tops are all a solid Sitka spruce. Sitka spruce is grown in the Pacific Northwest, and has been the primary top wood for U.S.A. instruments for many decades.

The Premier series is perfect for the working musicians and serious hobbyists who play to express their emotions, and generally let their music do the talking.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
