- European spruce top
25.5” scale African mahogany neck with 20-fret Indian laurel fingerboard and Indian laurel bridge

Sustainably sourced tonewood 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 Concerto delivers a warm, rich tone that’s ideal for players looking for a balanced 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.
Breedlove Concerto body and slim neck profile
The largest of the Breedlove Organic Collection, the Concerto body shape offers the rumbling power of a dreadnought with the ergonomic balance of Breedlove's classic Concert. By building to targeted specifications, Breedlove has kept the Concerto nimble and light enough for hours of play and a lifetime of use, especially with its roaring torrefied top and slim neck profile.
State-of-the-art Breedlove Natural Sound electronics
The Breedlove Signature Concerto acoustic-electric 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
The Breedlove Signature Concerto 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 Concerto acoustic-electric include forward X bracing, bone nut and saddle, Indian laurel headstock overlay, and premium Breedlove chrome closed gear tuners.
