Overview:

OREGON CONCERT CE GUITARS

For the musician seeking well-rounded balance with the unique look, midrange fullness, depth, clarity, and liveliness of locally sourced myrtlewood. A surprising Breedlove crafted from Northwest body woods, the Oregon Concert is wonderfully alive with tone. The hardrock maple neck, Hand selected high contrast myrtlewood Back & Sides, Hand selected tight grain Port Orford Cedar top combine to deliver accentuated depth and clarity across the tonal spectrum.

Features:

BODY SHAPE

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.

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.

ASYMMETRICAL HEADSTOCK

The asymmetrical headstock is featured on CM, Concert, Auditorium, and 12-String body shapes. This headstock isn’t just a pretty shape – it’s specifically designed to keep the strings in a straight, even line from the nut to the tuning pegs. The result is even tension, stable tuning, and ease of alternate tuning.

Features:

BACK AND SIDE WOODS

Solid Hand Selected High Contrast Myrtlewood, umbellularia californica, formerly oreodaphne californica, originates in the western United States in Northern California and Oregon. Myrtlewood offers a strong fundamental with a powerful voice. Similar to maple, it has a clear and bright voice with superb projection and sustain, and offers a full and balanced sound. A versatile non-traditional tonewood, it is a favorite for many styles of playing. Myrtle has very unique and widely varied figure – no two sets are alike. Coloration ranges from blonde to taupe.

TOP WOOD

Solid Hand Selected Tight and Light Grain Port Orford Cedar Top, chamaecyparis lawsoniana. Port Orford cedar is a highly aromatic wood, delivering a subtle but powerful tone, originates in southwest Oregon and northwest California.
Tone Profile: Durable, stiff and strong with warm resonance. Very versatile acoustically. Like a combination of Sitka spruce and Western red cedar.
Aesthetics: Light amber in color, and also quite aromatic like eucalyptus.
Trivia / Fact: This tonewood known for its highly fragrant ginger aroma. Due to the straightness of its grain, it is also one of the preferred woods for arrow shafts.
