Breedlove

Description

The Breedlove Wildwood Concertina acoustic-electric is perfect for players who favor the unmistakable sound and easy playability of a small 12-fret guitar. As part of the Breedlove Organic Collection, now available at Guitar Center, the Wildwood Concertina brings the simple beauty and inviting timbre of straight-grain African mahogany to an affordable instrument. Complete with a thin satin finish, soft cutaway and Breedlove Natural Sound electronics, this Breedlove acoustic-electric looks as warm and inviting as its African mahogany tone.

Breedlove Organic Collection Wildwood Concertina main features:

Sustainably sourced all-solid African mahogany back and sides and top
25" scale solid African mahogany neck with 18-fret Indian laurel fingerboard and Indian laurel bridge, soft cutaway for access to all frets
Premium Breedlove chrome closed gear tuning machines with black buttons, Breedlove Natural Sound electronics with tuner
Thin natural satin UV finish

Sustainably sourced all-solid African mahogany body

Breedlove chose African mahogany for acoustic-electric guitars in its Organic Collection Wildwood Series. To source the FSC Certified African mahogany, the Breedlove team traveled to the African Congo River Basin Rainforest. The mahogany construction of the Breedlove Wildwood Concertina in a Satin finish delivers a warm, rich tone that's ideal for players looking for a balanced and rich sound.

Breedlove soft cutaway design for easy access to all frets

With an oft-requested soft cutaway, the Wildwood Concertina is as open to expressive lead lines as it is to robust accompaniment. The unique design of Breedlove's soft cutaway balances the higher energy treble notes with the lower energy bass tones.

State-of-the-art Breedlove Natural Sound electronics

The Breedlove Wildwood Concertina acoustic-electric cutaway model is equipped with Breedlove's Natural Sound electronics. Natural Sound electronics feature soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls, plus easy battery replacement.

Thin UV finish on a smaller Concertina body

The Breedlove Concertina model is perfect for players of smaller stature, and those who prefer a small 12-fret guitar. A thin, durable satin natural finish completes the Breedlove Wildwood Concertina. The thin UV-finished top reduces weight and also contributes to a more complex sound with sustained overtones.

Other special features of the Breedlove Wildwood Concert acoustic-electric include forward X bracing and premium Breedlove chrome tuning machines with black buttons.
