Breedlove Organic Collection Signature Concert CE main features:

Sustainably sourced all-solid African mahogany back and sides with torrefied European spruce top
25.5" scale African mahogany neck with 20-fret Indian laurel fingerboard and bridge, soft cutaway for easy access to all frets
Premium Breedlove chrome closed gear tuners and Breedlove Natural Sound electronics
Semi-gloss Copper Burst finish

Sustainably sourced all-solid wood construction and torrefied top

Breedlove chose African mahogany for acoustic-electric guitars in its Organic Collection Signature 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 Signature Concert acoustic-electric delivers a warm, rich tone that's ideal for players looking for a balanced and rich sound.

The torrefaction process, accomplished at the source in the Swiss Alps, offers Signature models an "aged" sound and makes for easier maintenance during fluctuations in temperature and humidity.

Soft cutaway design for easy fret access

Breedlove engineered their soft cutaway design to offer the smoothest, most comfortable access to the highest register. The soft cutaway design allows access to all 20 frets without diminishing the projection and balanced tone of the Breedlove Signature Concert. The unique design of Breedlove's soft cutaway balances the higher energy treble notes with the lower energy bass tones.

Breedlove Natural Sound electronics

The Breedlove Organic Collection Signature Series Concert 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

The Breedlove Signature Concert features a significantly thinner UV-finished top. The thin UV-finished top reduces weight and also contributes to a more complex sound with sustained overtones.

Other special features of the Breedlove Signature Concert acoustic-electric cutaway include forward X bracing and a bone nut and saddle.
