We loved these Breedlove mandolins, and sold lots of them back when Breedlove made all their mandolins in Bend, Oregon. Evidently the current owner of Breedlove stopped US production in 2015-'16 and they are now made overseas. This example is in excellent condition, and although it's a basic model the sunburst highlights the figured maple and gives it a nice vintage vibe. Kim Breedlove was ahead of the curve and used X-bracing under the carved spruce top. It has a nice full tone with plenty of bass. Quite a bargain for under $1000.

Acoustic guitars, mandolins, and banjos are still the mainstays at Gryphon, as they have been for over 45 years, though our inventory of steel guitars and ukuleles continues to grow as well. In recent years an important part of our growth has been in instruments by very small companies and individual makers, as we continue to keep one foot, or at least several toes, outside the mainstream music industry.
