An easy-to-play O-style mandolin, built with homegrown woods and Breedlove's incredible craftsmanship.
With a design that harkens back to the golden era of mandolin building, the American Series mandolins combine the best traditional construction elements with Breedlove's cutting-edge aesthetics and attention to detail.
The American Series OO mandolin is a teardrop-shaped 8-string. The body design provides a boomy, deep range that punches through a mix with clarity and authority. You won't believe the sound and power that comes out of such a little instrument. With a single oval sound hole, the sound is loud, and punchy, ideal for rhythmic strumming or out-front lead solos. The solid Sitka spruce top and maple back and sides further complement the bold projection, so this O-style can be heard no matter what arrangement you find yourself in. Whether practicing at home, jamming with your buddies, or blazing some Bill Monroe licks at center stage, this 8-string sounds killer. The 13 15/16" scale, 1-3/16" nut width, and 16" radius provides comfort and accessibility when running up and down the instrument's 23 frets. The bolt-on maple neck, and ebony fretboard provide amazing clarity and sustain, while also making the instrument incredibly sturdy.
Dressed in a smooth satin finish, with Saga tuners, and chrome hardware, this mandolin is truly a bluegrass looker, and will impress everybody within range of its killer tone and breathtaking looks.
The Breedlove OO mandolin not only sounds great, but is also very easy to play. Details like a radiused fingerboard and generous string spacing make it a very comfortable instrument. Design features such as low-profile neck and tail blocks and a floating bridge extension ensure maximum resonance and tonal response. Includes Breedlove deluxe hardshell case.
