Presenting the Breedlove Premier Series Concert Edgeburst CE, with Indian Rosewood back and sides and Redwood top.
From Breedlove about this model:
"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."
Let's look at some of the distinctive features of the Concert:
The team at 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. A light touch makes redwood talk, and the tallest trees have a lot to say. Redwood sounds vintage from the start, with rich overtones and a dynamic complexity drawn out by skilled fingers. Each string speaks, with strong note separation and a deep, crisp timbre.
SOUND OPTIMIZATION® & HAND VOICING
Why do Breedlove guitars sound so good? It’s simple, Breedlove guitars are made with care, with the goal of allowing you to play better, sound better and play more. But it’s also complex, with art, inspiration, craft and science merging together in a process they call Sound Optimization®. These models are hand voiced, with experienced luthiers meticulously tapping, listening and shaving away tiny curls of exquisite tonewood as they target specific, measurable frequencies that will make each unique, individual instrument sound its very best. The tone wood species are carefully milled, weighed and considered, with backs and tops specifically tuned to each other to create light, responsive guitars with superior tone and sustain.
Breedlove guitar necks feature a slimmer neck profile than traditional acoustic guitars, 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.
CONCERT BODY SHAPE
The Concert, Breedlove’s most popular body shape—designed 30 years ago and still going strong—is favored by discerning players for its versatile, balanced, articulate sound and its easy playing ergonomic comfort. This flagship platform performs equally well strummed or fingerpicked, and is perfectly poised for accompanying the human voice.
