PG's Jordan Wagner is On Location in Anaheim, CA, for NAMM 2010 where he swings by the Breedlove Guitars booth. In this segment, we get introduced to their new American Series guitars built in Bend, OR. The two specific models we check out are the American C20 (Sitka spruce top, satin mahogany back and sides, rosewood fingerboard and bridge with Gotoh tuners) American C25/CRH (L.R. Baggs electronics, rosewood back and sides, cedar top and ebony bridge and fretboard). In addition, we get to see what their custom shop offers, specifically an one-off bass for Governor Mike Huckabee. The bass features "Huck" on the nutcover, bearclaw Sitka spruce top, Oregon murtlewood back and sides, Hawaiian koa binding and "Life is Precious" inlay on the 12th fret.
