The Premier Concerto CE Adirondack Spruce – East Indian Rosewood is a professional grade acoustic-electric guitar delivering a surprisingly alive, balanced and resonate sound from a guitar designed for a heavy playing style. If you are looking for big lush sound with profound bass projection, this is the guitar. With the Concerto body design, you will hear more volume and more overtones than the traditional dreadnought, and you can push it as hard as you wish with your strumming. Using our Sound Optimization process, our craftsmen found the right frequency separation between the Adirondack spruce top and East Indian rosewood back and sides to maximize the classic robust sound desired by the professional touring artist and the studio musician, to the collector or weekend hobbyist. All Premier models come standard with the highly reliable LR Baggs EAS VTC electronics and can travel safely in a Breedlove hardshell case specially designed for each Breedlove revolutionary body shape. You will sound better, play better and play more on a Breedlove Premier Series acoustic-electric guitar.
The Premier Series
Rosewood. It feels like home. It blossoms, full of rich bass, singing trebles and even a hint of natural reverb in its beautiful wash of overtones. Premier Series guitars, made in Bend, with deluxe Breedlove hardshell cases, are based on incomparable East Indian Rosewood backs and sides, paired with, depending on your desire, crisp, clear Sitka spruce; dynamic, powerful Adirondack spruce; or rich, warm redwood. Honduran mahogany necks, African ebony fingerboards and bridges, and Breedlove Sound Optimization® make each Premier—fitted with LR Baggs EAS VTC electronics—first in class.
Sustainable & Clear-Cut Free
Breedlove uses no clear-cut woods in its Made in Bend models. It’s that’s simple. Featuring sustainably sourced all solid exotic and native tonewoods handcrafted by skilled luthiers who are as sensitive to the needs of the earth as they are to building the best sounding and playing guitars available anywhere.
Sound Optimization® & Hand Voicing
Why do Breedlove guitars sound so good? It’s simple, Breedlove guitars are made with care, with the goal of allowing you to play better, sound better and play more. But it’s also complex, with art, inspiration, craft and science merging together in a process we call Sound Optimization®. These models are hand voiced, with experienced luthiers meticulously tapping, listening and shaving away tiny curls of exquisite tonewood as they target specific, measurable frequencies that will make each unique, individual instrument sound its very best. The tone wood species are carefully milled, weighed and considered, with backs and tops specifically tuned to each other to create light, responsive guitars with superior tone and sustain.
Concerto Body Shape
Loud, textured and supremely satisfying, Breedlove’s proprietary Concerto delivers more volume and more nuance than the standard classic dreadnought. Our largest body shape retains trademark Breedlove playing comfort while summoning a lush, complex tonal response.
Adirondack (Red) Spruce Top
In a word—power. Red spruce breaks in with play, becoming ever richer, but from the start it offers the most energy of any guitar top, with a famously explosive dynamic range and a clear, balanced voice.
East Indian Rosewood Back & Sides
The familiar scooped sound profile of a classic dreadnought comes largely from East Indian rosewood, which emphasizes round bass tones and clear trebles, leaving a valley custom made for the human voice. The same carefully sourced qualities offer presence and definition to smaller bodies, along with great dynamic range.
The 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.
