The Breedlove Legacy Sunken Red Cedar-Ovangkol thinline concert acoustic-electric guitar brings together the articulation of rare sunken red cedar and ovangkol's substantial projection in a masterfully thin concert body. Hand crafted by Breedlove luthiers, it retains the concert shape's signature low-end warmth while weighing significantly less. Breedlove's proprietary Sound Optimization process fine-tunes each piece of tonewood for optimal frequency response, creating a guitar that's comfortable to play for hours while sounding much larger than its slim size indicates. With burled redwood details, bloodwood binding and an LR Baggs Anthem pickup, this limited edition model is a premium acoustic-electric guitar blending ultimate comfort and acoustic tone.

Crafted With Rare, Resonant Tonewoods for Optimal Frequency Response and Comfort

This Breedlove Legacy is crafted with some of the world's most desirable and resonant tonewoods. The thinline sunken red cedar top offers incredible articulation and responsiveness. Combined with ovangkol back and sides, it projects a clear, balanced tone with rich lows and sparkling highs. Weighing significantly less than a traditional concert body, the thinline design increases resonance and sustain for hours of dynamic, fatigue-free playing.

Proprietary Sound Optimization Process With Hand-Voicing for the Best Possible Tone

Every Breedlove Legacy guitar undergoes a proprietary Sound Optimization process, where experienced luthiers meticulously tap-tune and hand-voice the guitar to bring out its optimal tonal character. Using specialized tools, they shave away tiny wood curls to target specific frequencies for the very best possible tone. The tonewoods are carefully selected and matched, with the back and top specifically tuned to each other. This handcrafted process allows the Legacy Sunken Red Cedar-Ovangkol Thinline to sing with superior clarity, balance and sustain.

Slimmer Body With Thin Finish Reduces Weight While Increasing Projection and Sustain

With its thinline concert body and finishes, the Breedlove Legacy Sunken Red Cedar-Ovangkol weighs significantly less than a traditional concert guitar. This not only increases comfort during extended playing sessions, but also allows the tonewoods to vibrate and project more freely. You'll enjoy singing overtones and added punch without compromising the concert body's characteristic warmth. Despite its slimmer dimensions, the guitar still produces a bold, balanced tone that belies its size.

LR Baggs Element Pickup and Preamp for Studio-Quality Amplified Tone

The Breedlove Legacy Sunken Red Cedar-Ovangkol Thinline Concert comes equipped with an LR Baggs Element active pickup and preamp system. Featuring a flexible gooseneck microphone, the Element accurately captures your guitar's natural acoustic sound. Its preamp provides accessible volume and tone controls, allowing you to easily dial in rich amplified tone, whether on stage or in the studio. The result is studio-quality sound that accurately represents your playing.
