A handcrafted acoustic with big tone in a travel-ready form.

The Breedlove Legacy Companion Port Orford cedar-walnut cutaway acoustic-electric guitar packs impressive acoustic potential into its compact frame. Handcrafted in the USA, the Legacy Companion starts with premium solid wood construction - a tight-grained Port Orford cedar top and stunning walnut back and sides. Together, these tonewoods produce a rich, detailed sound with excellent balance across the tonal spectrum. The body's soft cutaway grants comfortable access to upper frets while retaining impressive volume and projection. Through Breedlove's proprietary sound optimization process, master luthiers hand-voice each Legacy Companion to maximize resonance and sustain. An LR Baggs Element pickup lets you plug in with optimized amplified tone true to the guitar's acoustic character. With a slim neck profile and smooth semi-gloss finish, the Legacy Companion feels fast and comfortable ideal for fingerstyle playing. From the studio to the stage, the Breedlove Legacy Companion provides big dreadnought tone in a conveniently portable acoustic package.

Premium Tonewoods Deliver Rich, Nuanced Tone

Constructed using an all-solid wood design, the Legacy Companion's Port Orford cedar top and walnut back and sides produce a detailed, balanced acoustic tone. The tight, straight grain pattern of the Port Orford cedar top enhances resonance across the tonal spectrum. Renowned for its warm, rounded lows, singing mids and crisp, articulate highs, walnut creates excellent note separation and responsiveness. Together, these premium tonewoods yield impressive volume, projection and sustain from the Legacy Companion's compact body. Whether strumming chords or intricate fingerstyle arrangements, you'll appreciate the Legacy's balanced tone and singing voice-like sustain.

Fast, Comfortable Playability

With its slim neck profile, 1 11/16" nut width and smooth semi-gloss neck finish, the Legacy Companion excels in fast, intricate playing styles. The soft cutaway provides easy access to upper frets while retaining impressive projection. Combined with the Legacy's detailed acoustic tone, this guitar feels inspiring to play everything from fingerstyle arrangements to rhythm strumming. On stage or in studio, the Legacy Companion's comfortable playability enhances your creativity and musical expression.

Sound Optimization Process Maximizes Resonance

Each Legacy Companion undergoes Breedlove's proprietary sound optimization process, where master luthiers meticulously hand-voice the guitar's bracing to produce the optimal resonance and sustain. Using specialized taps, they target specific frequencies in the top and back, listening for overtones and adjusting the bracing until each Legacy Companion rings with its own distinct, optimized voice. This detailed hand-voicing maximizes the potential of the Port Orford cedar and walnut tonewoods, resulting in impressive volume, dynamic range and singing sustain.

Plug In with Onboard LR Baggs Element Pickup

The Breedlove Legacy Companion comes equipped with an LR Baggs Element active undersaddle pickup and soundhole-mounted preamp, providing optimized amplified tone true to the guitar's inherent acoustic sound. The hand-flexed transducer captures the guitar's organic midrange character, while the volume and tone controls let you shape your amplified tone. With the Legacy's impressive acoustic potential amplified through the Element system, you can confidently use this compact acoustic on stage or in the studio. The Legacy Companion gives you big dreadnought tone and projection in a comfortably portable size.
