PREMIER CONCERT CE LTD
Limited Edition

The stuff of legends—mighty European spruce, rich Brazilian rosewood. A tried and true tone machine, this beautiful limited-edition instrument features Breedlove’s revolutionary soft cutaway Concert body shaping a versatile, mesmerizing sound guaranteed to haunt you every moment it’s not in your hands. What could make this guitar even more unique? How about a three piece back built with two extraordinary Brazilian rosewood sets accentuated with a master grade piece of figured Koa? Own a piece of guitar history—an heirloom quality investment you can enjoy every day of your life. It’s the sound of rosewood now—and forever.

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.

PINLESS BRIDGES
The Breedlove Pinless Bridge helps maintain the integrity of the top by eliminating the need for six drilled string holes. The fewer holes in your soundboard, the more evenly the sound wave can move across the interior, without any loss of energy. The Breedlove Pinless Bridge provides a gentler string-break angle from the bridge to the top of the saddle, reducing saddle strain. This innovative bridge also makes string changes a breeze, especially on 12 strings. Plus, you’ll never again have to worry about lost, worn-out, or broken bridge pins — and no more jarring string “pop” when you’re tuning up and don’t have the ball-end of the string seated properly into a pin.

CONCERT BODY SHAPE
The Concert, Breedlove’s most popular body shape—designed 30 years ago and still going strong—is 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.

EUROPEAN SPRUCE TOP
Lustrously pale in hue, like Engelmann, European spruce offers some of the headroom of Adirondack and a quicker response than Sitka. All, of course, share exquisite properties, but European—versatile like its cousins—adds a touch of cedar’s warmth, which makes it a favorite of many fingerpickers.

BRAZILIAN ROSEWOOD BACK & SIDES
Brazilian rosewood is highly desirable, exceptionally rare and heavily regulated. It is regarded as one of the finest tonewoods; hard, stiff, and highly resonant with a glass-like ring that sustains; it has a floral scent, similar to roses, thus the name. A very hard, heavy wood that produces a loud, warm, rich tone, with full deep bass, and brilliant trebles, known for its sustain and clarity. Can vary from brick red and burnt orange to shades of dark brown to violet color with black spidery streaks, it looks best when quarter sawn, and can exhibit straight grain and homogenous color or wild landscape-like figuration, often compared to spider webbing.

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.
