The Oregon Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar is wonderfully alive, made for the musician looking for balance with the fullness, clarity and unique visual beauty of myrtle, sitka spruce & a maple neck for depth and clarity across the tonal spectrum.For the musician seeking well-rounded balance with the unique look, midrange fullness, depth, clarity, and liveliness of locally sourced myrtle. A surprising Breedlove crafted from Northwest body woods, the Oregon Concert is wonderfully alive with tone. The hard rock maple neck, myrtlewood body, and Sitka spruce top combine to deliver accentuated depth and clarity across the tonal spectrum.
The Breedlove Concert is the original Breedlove shape. It first appeared in 1992, and has been the best-selling Breedlove body shape ever since. Designed specifically for the fingerstylist to be well balanced, compact, and comfortable to play, it generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The unique construction also allows the Concert to sing even at a full strum. If you’re a fingerstylist, or are seeking an instrument to use as vocal accompaniment, this is the shape for you. The Concert is engineered to provide exceptional sustain with a pronounced bass response, both of which can be achieved with a light touch. The graduated top works in harmony with the Breedlove Bridge Truss to provide an even response throughout the lows, mids, and highs, with sustain, and clear, concise, note-for-note projection.
Slimmer Neck Profile
Smaller hands love the comfortably slim Breedlove neck, a bolt-on design with a single truss rod that facilitate easier adjustment for angle and action than traditional dovetail neck joints. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish process alone takes three days, including precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing, but resulting in a smoother, friendlier surface.
The CM, Concert, Auditorium, and 12-String models all feature Breedlove's asymmetrical headstock, specifically designed to keep the strings in a straight, even line from the tuning pegs down to the nut. The result is stable tuning, even tension and ease of alternate tuning.
Sitka spruce, a primary top wood for American-made instruments, is strong and light with magical tone retention. It offers a strong, focused sound that's perfect for flatpicking styles. Sitka delivers warmer, more fundamental sound than European Spruce, without the overtones that compromises clarity. Sitka is also well-known and loved for its gradual development, maturing with your playing as it opens slowly over time.
Back and Side Woods
Myrtlewood, originating from Northern California and Oregon, offers a strong fundamental with a powerful voice. is similar to maple, with a clear and bright voice with natural sustain and projection as well as a balanced sound. Versatile, yet nontraditional, it works for many styles of playing.
LR Baggs EAS VTC pickup system
Unlike typical undersaddle acoustic guitar pickups that are dependent on string compression for their sound, the Element was engineered to mirror the soundboard's actual movement as you play. At the heart of the pickup, a flexible film sensor only 2 thousandths of an inch thick picks up the guitar's most delicate nuances. Tracking the motion of the top rather than a direct string attack suppresses "quack" caused by compression and unlocks the Element's unrivaled dynamic range. The pickup's minimalist construction lessens any influence on the acoustic properties and creates an intimate coupling between the pickup and guitar for the highest fidelity possible.
