Premier Concerto Burnt Amber CE

FEATURES

Rosewood. It feels like home. It blossoms, full of rich bass, singing trebles and even a hint of natural reverb in its beautiful wash of overtones. Premier Series guitars, made in Bend, with deluxe Breedlove hardshell cases, are based on incomparable East Indian Rosewood backs and sides, paired with crisp, clear Sitka spruce. Honduran mahogany necks, African ebony fingerboards and bridges, and Breedlove Sound Optimization make each Premier?fitted with LR Baggs EAS VTC electronics?first in class.

SUSTAINABLE & CLEAR-CUT FREE

Breedlove uses no clear-cut woods in its Made in Bend models. It?s that?s simple. Featuring sustainably sourced all solid exotic and native tonewoods handcrafted by skilled luthiers who are as sensitive to the needs of the earth as they are to building the best sounding and playing guitars available anywhere.

THE 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.

CONCERTO BODY SHAPE

Loud, textured and supremely satisfying, Breedlove?s proprietary Concerto delivers more volume and more nuance than the standard classic dreadnought. Our largest body shape retains trademark Breedlove playing comfort while summoning a lush, complex tonal response.

STIKA SPRUCE TOP

The world?s most popular topwood, for a reason. Sitka has an ideal strength-to-weight ratio, yielding a strong fundamental, high velocity of sound and a pleasing elasticity. Translation? Sitka sounds great for heavy strumming, light fingerpicking and everything in between.

EAST INDIAN ROSEWOOD BACK & SIDES

The familiar scooped sound profile of a classic dreadnought comes largely from East Indian rosewood, which emphasizes round bass tones and clear trebles, leaving a valley custom made for the human voice. The same carefully sourced qualities offer presence and definition to smaller bodies, along with great dynamic range.

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 we 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.
