Overview

During Breedlove's research work to master the Concerto design, the Premier Concerto Copper was their key. With many dreadnoughts built with this wood combination, it was a critical goal that enhanced sound, feel and comfort was perfected with the Premier Concerto Copper. SOUND PROFILING to various frequency targets, they finally achieved the targeted Fundamental Resonance Frequency. Every step of Breedlove's development process was essential to accomplish the amazing, big, lush sound of the Premier Concerto Copper.

Body Shape
When Breedlove set out to create a guitar that would surpass the classic big body sound of the dreadnought, they didn’t just want it to be loud. They wanted to bring out more tonal complexity, and to offer a much more comfortable playing experience, too. Introducing the Breedlove Concerto, a guitar shape created to elicit more volume than a classic dreadnought, and more lush, complex tonal resonance in a comfortable body shape that feels just right. Loud, textured and supremely satisfying.

Using their unique sound profiling technology, they dial in just the right frequency for each piece of exotic tonewood, bringing out its special characteristics so you hear not just volume, but a palette of distinct tonal flavors. Crafted from woods like myrtlewood, mahogany, rosewood, koa, and cocobolo, the Concerto shape lets each wood resonate in a way you’ve never heard before.

Top Wood
Sitka spruce, picea sitchensis, originates in the northwest United States. Sitka spruce has been the primary top wood for American-made instruments for decades. It is strong and light with extended harmonic content, and it nearly equals the power of Adirondack. It offers a strong, focused tone with a solid fundamental -- perfect for flatpicking styles. When compared with European spruce, Sitka delivers warmer, more fundamental sound, largely free of overtones. Sitka takes a slightly longer period of playing time to open up. It has a straight uniform grain and coloration ranges from white to pink to light brown.

Back and Side Woods
Indian rosewood, dalbergia latifolia, originates in India and southern Iran. Indian rosewood has been the standard rosewood choice for decades. It is often associated with the great dreadnoughts, and is an amazingly neutral wood that takes its personality from the player. Well-balanced lows, mids, and highs make it a natural for many styles. For the past 30 years, a vast majority of high-end steel-string and classical guitars have been made from Indian rosewood. It is famous for rich basses and a clear treble response with well-balanced lows, mids, and highs. It is a black-streaked wood with coloration that usually leans toward purplish brown, and then oxidizes to a rich brown color.

Sound Profiling
With the goal of crafting the world’s finest guitars, Breedlove applied breakthrough technology that takes sound creation to a whole new level. The debut of their 2017 BIG SOUND instruments reveals the results from work by leading experts, research institutions and their own experimentation. They've advanced the creation and projection of sound and complexity of tone by working with—instead of against—the variability in the woods from forests around the world.

Music wood varies substantially among species, within trees of the same species and within an individual tree. Each tree has its unique lifespan experience. There is as much as a 30% variance in the density and frequency of tonewood cut to the same dimension within the same tree.

Most guitar production companies ignore these complex inconsistencies, cutting their tops and backs to a uniform, pre-determined dimension. At Breedlove, they embraced a far more complicated process, setting a new standard aimed at getting the most music out of every instrument they build. They have learned to capitalize on variation, developing exclusive technology: Breedlove SOUND PROFILING.

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.

Limited Lifetime Warranty
Breedlove players around the world can attest: With consistent, proper care, your Breedlove will give you a lifetime of service – and inspiration. New Breedlove instruments, purchased through an authorized Breedlove dealer, are warrantied to be free of defects in materials and workmanship throughout the lifetime of the original owner. In addition to materials and workmanship, Breedlove offers a two-year warranty on tuning machines and electronics packages. Cases and bags are subject to a one-year warranty covering defects in structure and hardware.

      Comments about Breedlove Premier Concerto Copper E Sitka Spruce - East Indian Rosewood Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I ordered this guitar after playing the all Myrtlewood version at a GC out of town. I was really impressed with the tone of the guitar and started researching the Breedlove Concerto models and found this model. It is pretty much everything I have wanted in a high end acoustic. After talking to the folks in Bend Oregon via email, I decided to give this guitar a chance and placed an order at my local GC. Guitar arrived in about 5 business days. This guitar has a rich tone that is hard to describe. I play in a worship band at church and that was the primary reason for purchasing this guitar. All of my fellow musicians were very impressed with the tone and the beauty of the guitar. I know these guitars are hard to find in stock, but if you can find one be sure to try it out. It is definitely a contender in the 2K guitar range.
