This month Geoff, Matt and I were invited to tour Breedlove's factory over in Bend. It was a fantastic opportunity to see their building process up close, and I took many, many photos for later.
Check out the origin story of these mandolin tops! As Tom Bedell (owner of Two Old Hippies - Breedlove's parent company) would elaborate later in the day, Breedlove takes extreme care in wood acquisition, making sure wood is acquired ethically and legally. Much of their stock is from windblown and float log salvage - where direct felling is required they take a strong stance against any form of clear-cutting. The above batch of mandolin tops came from float logs salvaged off the coast of Prince of Wales Island.
