Breedlove Oregon Concerto CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar - Bourbon Myrtlewood
At first glance, Breedlove's Oregon Concerto CE is an especially beautiful guitar. But that's not all this acoustic-electric has going for it. The Oregon Concerto CE is made with solid myrtlewood for the top, back, and sides. When played, myrtlewood produces a sound that blends the best of rosewood, maple, and mahogany into one extraordinarily beautiful tone. Complete with an easy-playing satin-finished neck, the Oregon Concerto CE can handle anything from comfortable chording to frenetic lead lines. And when you're gigging, the LR Baggs Element electronics will wow your listeners with lifelike sound. The Breedlove Oregon Concerto CE's responsibly harvested tonewoods and excellent craftsmanship make it a must-have for any acoustic enthusiast.
Myrtlewood might not be a tonewood that you’re familiar with, but let us assure you that it’s a tonewood you won’t want to stop talking about. Native to the coasts along the Pacific Northwest, myrtlewood (Umbellularia Californica) combines tonal elements rarely seen among American hardwoods. It blends the warmth of rosewood, the lively midrange of mahogany, and the bright treble response of maple into a single tonewood! Depending on your playing style, you’ll bring out different elements for a sound that’s all your own. And due to the constantly shifting winds where the trees grow, each set of myrtlewood showcases a unique grain pattern, making every myrtlewood guitar a one-of-a-kind creation. 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 at Sweetwater 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.
