Bend, Ore. — Continuing the design and aesthetics inspired by Kim Breedlove and offering an excellent appointment package for their devoted mandolin players, Breedlove proudly introduces the Premier Series Mandolins.

Guitarists will appreciate the comfort of wide nut spacing and a radiused fingerboard, both Breedlove design traditions.

The Premier Series Mandolins are composed of the highest grade Sitka Spruce for the top, and Western Big Leaf Maple for the back, sides, and neck. Black binding on the body top, back and neck accentuate the curves of these instruments.

The radiused ebony fingerboard is adorned with a detailed Mosaic pin inlay and oversize frets. Breedlove Premier Series Mandolins are finished with a captivating Red toner full gloss finish, and K&K Twin Internal electronics faithfully reproduce the natural sound of these mandolins.

6 new models available

All Premier Series mandolins are designed and built in Breedlove's Bend, Oregon factory.
