Breedlove Premier Concerto CE Acoustic-electric Guitar - Edgeburst Redwood/East Indian Rosewood

6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar with Redwood Top, Rosewood Back and Sides, Mahogany Neck, and Ebony Fingerboard - Edgeburst

Redwood and Rosewood Make This Guitar a Must-have

The Breedlove Premier Concerto CE combines unique tonewoods with knockout electronics and construction methods. This acoustic-electric guitar is made with solid redwood over solid East Indian rosewood back and sides. Thanks to Breedlove's proprietary Sound Optimization Process and the hand-voiced top and back, it creates a powerful, balanced tone with an impressively long sustain. You'll love the feel of the satin-finished neck as your fingers dance up and down the fretboard. For your plugged-in pleasure, the Premier Concerto comes with LR Baggs Element electronics for an uncompromising tone. Made with responsibly sourced and sustainably harvested tonewoods, the Premier Concerto CE doesn't just sound and look good — it feels good to own, too.

Top-notch tonewoods

The Breedlove Premier series features premium tonewoods that were responsibly and sustainably sourced by Breedlove's team of wood experts. This guitar, the Premier Concerto CE, features solid East Indian rosewood back and sides with a solid redwood top. By combining rosewood's powerful bass response and extra-present midrange with the sparkling articulation and clarity of redwood, this guitar creates a nicely balanced tone with tons of resonance. Made from sustainably sourced, non-clear-cut tonewoods, the Premier Concerto CE is a guitar that sounds just as good as it looks. And when you hit the stage, the Premier Concerto CE’s LR Baggs Element electronics deliver a plugged-in tone that will leave your audience speechless. When you open the case for the first time, you’ll get a Guitar Portrait that calls out your guitar’s specifics from its weight and thickness to where the tonewoods were sourced.

Hand-voiced for uncompromising performance

Ask any guitar player what sets one guitar apart from the other, and they’ll probably say one word: performance. With Breedlove, you’ll experience a level of performance and sonic consistency that are hard to find anywhere else. How do they accomplish such a feat? By employing their state-of-the-art Sound Optimization process and hand-voicing for each guitar they build in Bend, Oregon. It all begins with sanding each tonewood until it reaches a weight that brings out the best possible sound (most builders sand to a uniform thickness). After the braces are attached, highly skilled luthiers use soft felt mallets, microphones, and specialized computer software to analyze the frequency response of the top and back. From here, the same luthier voices the bracing by hand, targeting specific frequencies along the way.

By combining technological innovation with the art and craft of lutherie, Breedlove ensures that each one of their instruments performs at its full potential. They fully believe in their Sound Optimization process. In fact, no instrument will leave their factory until it reaches its peak performance, even if that means they carve on the bracing through the soundhole. And for you, the player, it means that your Breedlove will come alive in your hands the second you play your first note. From the quietest fingerpicking to the loudest flatpicking, you get access to an incredible dynamic range — all without losing definition and note separation. Strum your final chord, and the guitar will reward you with long, rich sustain. If you’re not entirely sold yet, you will be when you pick it up.

The Breedlove Tonewood Certification Program

Part of being a responsible company is knowing where your stock comes from and documenting it properly. That’s why Breedlove has created their revolutionary Tonewood Certification Program. Through extensive documentation and cooperation with local authorities and mill workers, Breedlove can tell you exactly where the wood on your guitar grew and how it was harvested. That’s just another way Breedlove shows their eco-conscious commitment.

Breedlove: guitars you can feel good about

From the company's beginning in 1990, Breedlove has focused a lot of their efforts on reducing their impact on the planet without compromising the quality of their instruments. Their radical approach to sustainability led them to create their Tonewood Certification Program and commit to visit each location where their timber is harvested to ensure that their sustainability standards are met. The company has introduced player-centered innovations, including top-loading bridges, custom voicings, and unique neck profiles. From the Discovery to the Legacy, each and every Breedlove is made with an uncompromising dedication to quality sound, flawless workmanship, and environmental sustainability. Buying a Breedlove is much more than purchasing a top-notch acoustic guitar — it’s buying a guitar that you can feel good about.
