We're proud to offer this Breedlove Premier Concert CE acoustic-electric guitar in a gorgeous Edgeburst finish!
As pioneering acoustic guitar builders, Breedlove made the admirable move of championing the use of local and sustainable woods for some of their distinctive models. Along with the traditionally warm rosewood back and sides of this guitar, the redwood top is exceptionally clear, articulate and resonant and looks stunning under the Edgeburst finish.
The combination is exceptionally well balanced along the EQ spectrum, having the sweet bass and warmth of rosewood but added top-end sparkle. The redwood's articulate nature makes it great for the fingerpickers out there, and you get great string-to-string clarity on strummed chords as well.
Breedlove's neck shapes are a bit narrower/thinner from front to back than traditional acoustics and almost play more like an electric. They're extremely comfortable for anyone that finds a traditional acoustic neck a bit bulky. The fretwork and craftsmanship is top-notch to allow for very low action, if that's your cup of tea, for fingerpicking hours on end without having to worry about hand fatigue.
The LR Baggs pickup system makes gigging easy, and the bridge-pin free bridge design will let you change strings on the fly. Perfect for anyone who’s looking for a gig-ready, concert shaped acoustic guitar with a subtle twist. This guitar is really built with the gigging musician in mind. Plug into your favorite amp or send your signal to the front of house PA if you need some more volume. If you break a string or remember that you need to re-string your guitar right before you hit the stage, the Breedlove bridge will allow you to do so without taking up a ton of your precious time. The guitar's got everything you need to spend more time playing and less time fussing with microphones or string changes.
Versatility is the name of the game with the Breedlove Premier Concert. It's perfect for the guitarist that needs a little bit of everything.
Tone first. Stake your claim with a professional grade Premier Concert. Connoisseurs love redwood’s immediate, responsive symmetry of cedar’s warmth and spruce’s brilliance. Favored by fingerstylists, but growing in popularity with all types of players, redwood enhances rosewood’s blossom of overtones for a new, enchanting guitar experience. The pioneering light, versatile soft cutaway Concert body is suited equally to fingers or flatpick, with unparalleled dynamics, projection and sustain—it’s all you want in a stage-ready, studio-worthy guitar, and more. Breedlove, always pioneering, has been building with redwood tops for over 25 years. A majestic native tonewood, it has a stiffness similar to spruce, but offers fingerstylists a rich, warm palette with a soft cedar-like attack and overtones often described like wine, with hints of chocolate and cinnamon. Flatpickers love its distinctive note separation, and its simple beauty connects directly with the earthiness of its sound. We use no clear-cut wood. Breedlove salvages fallen timber or individually harvest trees to minimize impact on the forest.
