Breedlove USA Series Concerto Cinnamon Burst E Acoustic Guitar - Sitka / Mahogany

$1,799.00

Crafted In Bend, Oregon USA

Breedloves' lightest weight Concerto, this new guitar is a monster. We know of no instrument available from any company that comes close to this big sound at such a value. Please pick it up, play it, and hold on. You will love the energy. It is designed for a heavier playing style where fill-the-room sound is the goal. Yet, you will find warm complex overtones. The new Cinnamon Burst is highly attractive.

CONCERTO BODY SHAPE

When we set out to create a guitar that would surpass the classic big body sound of the dreadnought, we didn’t just want it to be loud. We sought to bring out more tonal complexity, and to offer a much more comfortable playing experience, too. Introducing the new Breedlove Concerto, a new guitar shape created to elicit more volume than a classic dreadnought, and more lush, complex tonal resonance in a comfortable body shape that feels just right. Loud, textured, and supremely satisfying.

BREEDLOVE NECK

Breedlove guitar necks feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. Unlike traditional dovetail neck joints that require major surgery for a neck re-set, it is easy to adjust the play action and neck angle with the Breedlove bolt-on neck and single-action truss rod. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish contributes to ideal playability – the finish process alone takes three days, including precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.
 

MAHOGANY BACK AND SIDES

Mahogany is a medium-lightweight wood, ranging in color from light brown to dark, primarily used for necks because of the feel and the stability it provides. Balanced, resonant tone with notable sustain. Thick bottom end, rich midrange, and controlled, warm top end. Found from southern Mexico through Central America and south to Brazil and Bolivia.
