I picked this guitar up recently to start tinkering again. For the price it seemed like a decent instrument. My issue with it is the strings which seem to be light or medium tension. My previous endeavors had me utilizing a beautifully made instrument with a spruce top, rosewood back and sides, ebony board. This was set up with extra heavy tension and I loved playing it. Years prior I had picked up an intermediate Ramerez, spruce top, mahogany back and sides, ebony board, this was set up with Augustine Blue label.
I went to the store and now I see not only different tensions, but different materials. This Breedlove has a spruce top, I believe the back sides and neck to be sapele, and the fingerboard appears to be indian rosewood. I know tone is very subjective to an individual's ear, but is there any of these new materials I should look to avoid or that come highly recommended?
