1997 Breedlove C22 Bearclaw Sitka/Walnut Concert w/ HSC


Notify me when this product is available:

Here's a beautiful Tumalo-era 1997 Breedlove C22 Concert, with Breedlove hard shell case, used, in excellent condition. It's a consignment item (customer-owned used). Bearclaw Sitka spruce for the top, highly figured walnut back and sides (all solid). Tight lows, strong mids, with fat, even treble tones and lots of sustain. Balanced and wonderfully responsive! There's a passive piezo pickup installed (outputting via standard endpin jack), but no preamp or electronics whatsoever, so you'll need an external preamp. Very light cosmetic wear, just some very minor scratches here and there if you really look hard. It's in remarkable condition for its age and appears to have been very lightly played over the years. It's been set up very low for delicate fingerstyle playing, saddle is quite low - very nice if you fingerpick softly. Depending on your playing style/preference - especially if you're a strong picker, you may want a new saddle and setup. We have an excellent luthier on staff here at the shop. As this is a consignment item (customer-owned used) we would need to charge for this service - it would be $100 for a new hand-shaped bone saddle + setup. Please inquire if you'd like this done prior to purchasing.
