A guitar for connoisseurs, yet astonishingly affordable. While the Artista series sits at the top of the Organic Collection line, it still lies within reach, and how. A short scale Hard Rock maple neck, joining the Oregon myrtlewood body at the twelth fret, puts a combination of easy playability, expressive tone and visual beauty right into your hands. Small body guitars are treasured by serious players, and an Artista Concertina Natural Shadow CE—with an arresting high gloss Natural Shadow finish on a torrefied European spruce top—is an investment in joy. The Breedlove difference at its finest!
