Sustainable & Clear-Cut Free

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.

THE BREEDLOVE NECK
Breedlove craftsmen often say, "No neck feels better than a Breedlove neck." They may be a bit biased, but industry insiders agree. Here's Breedlove's big secret: hands-on sculpting. After basic machining, each Breedlove neck goes through a comprehensive, build and finish process, starting with the hand shaping of each and every neck. Next, the perfectly sculpted neck heads into the finish process where it receives a wash coat and sealer. Then, over a three-day period, multiple finish coats are applied, and the neck is level sanded. In the final stage, Breedlove read more perfects the finish by hand-buffing it and rubbing it down to achieve exactly the right thickness for perfect action and playability.

MYRTLEWOOD BACK & SIDES
Popularized by Breedlove, myrtlewood, from the windblown Oregon coast, combines the best elements of rosewood, mahogany and maplerich bass, warm midrange and clear, bright treblesfor truly versatile guitars. Each sonically distinct instrument is individualized by the gnarled, wildly varied, but always arresting grain patterns.

THE CONCERT BODY SHAPE
The Concert, Breedlove's most popular body shapedesigned 30 years ago and still going strongis favored by discerning players for its versatile, balanced, articulate sound and its easy playing ergonomic comfort. This flagship platform performs equally well strummed or fingerpicked, and is perfectly poised for accompanying the human voice.

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 Breedlove calls 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.
