The Artista Concert CE is a groundbreaking all-solid wood, versatile play-style, acoustic-electric guitar. Why is this instrument a game changer for players and changing the conversation on acoustic guitars? Simple. Custom sound, sustainably harvested woods at an approachable price point.

The Solid Myrtlewood, never sourced from clear cuts, is Breedlove's favorite tonewood for backs and sides as it delivers surprising energy and extraordinary tonal balance in addition to its highly varied color patterns accentuated by the UV thin Natural Shadow Burst finish. To further boost the High-Energy sound, Breedlove has chosen a Hard Rock maple neck, which is denser than mahogany, and an African ebony fretboard and bridge. The FSC certified European spruce top is torrefied, resulting in a more mature sound and tone and a top that's less susceptible to movement with humidification changes.

The highly versatile Concert body shape is suited for strumming and heavy play, but also shines as a fingerstyle guitar. Responsive to a light touch and strumming, this versatile guitar has outstanding nuance and note-to-note clarity.

The cutaway design gives access to all twenty frets. Breedlove's Natural Sound Electronics sound better, are more reliable and put controls right where you need them in the sound hole for quick on-the-strum access. You will sound better, play better, and play more on a Breedlove Artista Series guitar.

"Beautiful tone and amazing wood grain"
Overall: 10 out of 10 stars

This acoustic practically plays itself. The tone is perfect! The wood grain is amazing (even better than the advertised photos). The deep browns and light tans of the Myrtle Wood are truly amazing and I couldn't be happier. My only complaint, and one quickly solved is the action was a tad bit higher than I'd hoped from a vanilla purchase. No worries other than that and again something I can amend.
