Mark I
The Mark I has a strikingly elegant, modern profile based on Breedlove’s award-winning CM design, and is built with highly figured and finely carved tonewoods. An asymmetrically chambered body gives the Mark I a lively resonance and a lightweight feel. The Mark I can be completely customized with a selection of tonewoods, finishes, custom inlays and electronics options such as Lollar Imperial Humbuckers and RMC hexaphonic pickups.

Mark IV
The Mark IV has a classic single-cut silhouette with flame maple top. The signature Breedlove asymmetrical headstock is fitted with Gotoh 381 tuners and an Ebony peghead overlay. The one-piece bolt-on neck has a hand-rubbed finish. The Ebony fingerboard can be customized with the inlay of your choice. Choose from a variety of Seymour Duncan Pickups or upgrade to Jason Lollar Imperial Humbuckers or P-90 pickups, combined with a variety of custom control options.

So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
