Product DescriptionThis versatile acoustic-electric Concert guitar is ready to be plugged in and played live. The Stage Concert's distinct voice is built on the original Breedlove Concert body shape. The electronics let you control your sound and translate the nuances of your playing to your audience, and the Breedlove semi-gloss neck allows for hours of comfortable play so you can focus on your performance.
Check out the Breedlove Stage Concert Acoustic-Electric:
Body ShapeThe Concert with soft cutaway is the most popular body shape, favored by players because it is well-balanced, compact, comfortable to play, and offers all the qualities of a great sounding guitar. It generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The Concert works well when played fingerstyle, as vocal accompaniment, or at a full strum.
TopSitka spruce is grown in the northwest, and has been the primary top wood for U.S.A. instruments for many decades. It is strong, light, and gives extended harmonic content and nearly equals the power of Adirondack.
Back and SidesIndian rosewood has been the standard rosewood choice for decades. It is often associated with the great dreadnoughts, and is an amazingly neutral wood, taking its personality from the player. Well-balanced lows, mids, and highs make it a natural for many styles.
Hand-Crafted NeckA satin-finished nato mahogany neck with volute makes the neck comfortable and easy to play. The volute adds strength to the break angle of the headstock. It also acts as a thumb rest for chords played in open and first positions.
Breedlove Bridge TrussFor centuries, one of the most difficult components of crafting guitars has been relieving the stress on the bridge without overbuilding the top and dampening sound. Originally invented over 20 years ago, the Breedlove Bridge Truss is still one of the most innovative truss systems on the market today. Refined and improved over the years, the Breedlove Bridge Truss relieves stress on the top, allowing use of a thinner top, providing for greater sustain and balance, more expression from the instrument, and greater structural integrity -- all while adding longevity to the instrument.
Graduated TopBecause no two tops are exactly the same, Breedlove's graduation process allows them to get the most response from the guitar's top while retaining structural integrity. Once Breedlove has selected the perfect top wood for a specific instrument, they evaluate each and every top for flexibility, and then graduate each piece of wood, so it's slightly thinner on the bass side. The amount of graduation is customized for each individual instrument, dependent on the relative stiffness of the top.
This process essentially makes every Breedlove a one-of-kind. Knowing your Breedlove was built with this intentional care and discernment, you can rest assured that the instrument is performing at its highest potential, so you focus on what you do best: creating, expressing, and getting the most out of your music.
ElectronicsThe LR Baggs Element pickup and the Breedlove LR-TCV preamp give you great plugged-in sound. The back-lit, colored LED tuner also allows you to see if you're in tune on a dark stage. This set-up lets you play with confidence, so you can focus on your performance.
Aesthetic AppointmentsElegant appointments include abalone top purfling, stage diamond inlays, and a full-gloss finish.
