Overview

The night is big. Everything heard and seen under the light of the moon looms closer and larger—howling wolves, stretched silhouettes. Even stillness takes on a life of its own. To evoke the expansive, embracing sounds and silence of night, Breedlove crafted the most textured big sound in a Breedlove Concert acoustic guitar ever... in the lightest guitar body possible. Meet the Breedlove USA Concert Moon Light, handcrafted in Bend, Oregon.

Sound frequencies travel most efficiently through lighter materials. With this in mind, Breedlove designers sought a solution for the Moon Light that would reduce weight and bring the acoustic guitar to life in a player’s hands. Through this search, they achieved the thinnest finish to date on a Breedlove – a mere 5 mils on top and 2 mils for the back and sides. To achieve the results, they conducted extensive Sound Profiling - frequency testing the Sitka tops and mahogany backs. As a result, their tops are thinner, the backs a bit thicker, and the sound hole smaller to hit their target fundamental resonance frequency for textured big sound.

Breedlove wanted the sound of the Moon Light acoustic guitar to speak for itself. So they minimized binding and decoration. Coming in at just 3.5 pounds, the Breedlove USA Concert is almost 25% lighter than the Breedlove Premier Concert Mahogany, which is crafted with the same wood pairings. The Moon Light features a rich Alaska Sitka spruce top, made from wood salvaged from downed trees in the Tongass National Forest. The Honduran mahogany used for the back, sides and neck are selectively harvested in the Custosel Concession in the Mayan Biosphere of Guatemala. The comfort and simple beauty of the Breedlove USA Concert Moon Light acoustic guitar delivers complex notes that are beautiful to the ear with the robust big instrument sound of much larger guitar designs.

Comments about Breedlove USA Concert Moon Light Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I went into Guitar Center and tried every Taylor and Martin on the wall, but this Breedlove is the one that stood out from all the rest.

But it didn't just stand out because it's unique "moon light" finish - the sound was what really blew me away, right from that first low E-chord strum. This lightweight guitar projects just as much as a big boy guitar, if not even moreso.

People have always told me that Breedloves have the low end of Martins with the crisp top end of Taylors. I see what they mean. The tone is very balanced and just sounds alive in your hands.

Personally, I'm not a fan of glossy and shiny guitars, so the matte finish is perfect for me. I also like that there's no pick guard - helps set it apart.

I plugged in the guitar to an LR Baggs PARA Acoustic DI just to test the electronics to see if it would sound good live, and it definitely passed the test. It sounds extremely accurate and very clear (I would probably tell your sound guy to roll off some mids (1kHz) as it can sound like paper, but this is common with most acoustic guitar pickups. Now, the volume control is inside the sound hole, which I listed as a con. But on the other hand, have the electronics inside actually makes the guitar look cleaner (which I prefer). I guess it depends on what you're into.

I can't forget to mention the beautiful hardshell case with red stitching around the lip and plenty of space on the inside compartment for extra strings, batteries, and whatever else you need.

Do yourself a favor and go into Guitar Center to try one of these out. You won't regret it. I can see this guitar becoming a big hit with those who are ready to take the next step from entry level guitars to the next pedestal.

    Comments about Breedlove USA Concert Moon Light Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I don't own this guitar but I played it at guitar center.
    It's the warmest sounding small body guitar I've ever played. The satin finish has a lovely old school vibe.
    It weighs about the same as a good classical guitar.
    Lots of good guitars out there but this may be favorite at this price point.

      Comments about Breedlove USA Concert Moon Light Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I've been the proud owner of no less than 8 top Martin guitars since 1972. Also 3 top Taylor guitars as well. I was not typically impressed with Breedlove offerings as I typically felt they had a somewhat restrained sound. Not a prominent bottom end or midrange punch which I preferred and was accustomed to. I just happened to be in a store that had a Firelight which was all mahogany. It blew me away but I couldn't help but feel somehow a spruce top would take it up a notch. A dealer I spoke to understood me and happened to special order in a Moon Light which has the spruce top and mahogany sides and back.I got the last one they were intending to make without a pickup (I don't want electronics nor a saddle pickup). I was at the store when the UPS driver arrived, I opened the box, then the case and checked out the tuning which was nearly perfect. I tweaked that and played no more than 6 or 8 chords both open and full and the sustain, punch and bottom end flat out blew me away. I just couldn't understand how in the heck it was possible for such a small light guitar to thrust out such sound. I took flipped out my VISA and took it home. It continues to amaze me discovering it's unreal volume, energy and complex harmonic output capabilities. This is truly a extraordinary instrument
