Breedlove has been one of the main guitar manufacturers leading the way in building instruments from sustainably sourced exotic and native tonewoods for many years now. Using Myrtlewood as a main tonewood in their guitars has proven to be one of their most successful strategies in accomplishing this goal as it has become very popular among many players who love its unique look and sound.
Myrtlewood, while native to Oregon's Pacific coast (where Breedlove is located), is considered by some to be the most 'exotic' of all tonewoods. Each piece of myrtlewood has the potential to look different from the next, with varying figuring, grain patterns, and coloration, adding to the uniqueness of each individual instrument. More importantly, however, is the tone that it produces, which is described as "capturing the deep bass of rosewood, the pure warmth of mahogany and the sweet, glassy treble of maple."
The Concertina body shape is reminiscent of a vintage 12-fret parlor guitar but with a full, punchy, modern sound and comfortable feel.
The copper logo and tuning machines, tortoise binding and rosette, brass fret markers and Tiger's Eye Burst finish tie everything together with the natural beauty of the myrtlewood, creating a classy, yet organic aesthetic.
