 In 1990, pioneering California luthiers Larry Breedlove and Steve Henderson pleft San Diego County and their jobs at  Taylor Guitars for the next chapter in their guitar building story. They ended up in tiny Tumalo, Oregon, just northwest of Bend, starting their new venture in what was essentially an old barn. This was to become the laboratory where Breedlove and Henderson began building better guitars by the most modern methods, developing advances like graduated tops, bridge trusses, asymmetrical headstocks and winged bridges which they employed in custom fingerstyle instruments like the soft cutaway C25 Northwest, which helped introduce Oregon Myrtlewood (Native to the Northwest USA) to the guitar world.

In 1994, two years after the company officially launched their new designs, Larry’s brother Kim,  relocated from the East Coast, joining as master luthier and eventually shepherding the brand through 25 years of sonic and design excellence, innovating and coming up with many breakthroughs including refinements of traditional assembly methods to radical new body shapes like the legendary, angular Master Class CM (designed by Terry Meyers).

Two Old Hippies, led by Tom Bedell, purchased Breedlove in November 2010, by which time the workshop had already moved to Bend, Oregon. A new, larger, facility was built in Bend, Oregon in late 2012, becoming today’s home of USA-made Breedlove Acoustic Guitars.
