The natural beauty and powerful, balanced tone of myrtlewood.
The individual character of each set of Oregon-grown myrtlewood used in the making of these all-myrtlewood Breedlove's Oregon Concert E acoustic-electrics offers exceptional visual appeal, as well as sonic power and clarity. Denser than Sitka spruce, Breedlove sands the tops thinner on the Oregon Concert E to achieve a voice that is lively and crisp, with powerful projection and detailed note articulation. Its onboard L.R. Baggs EAS VTC electronics gives you the versatility of plugging in for a solid live performance or crystal-clear recording.
The Oregon Concert E Myrtlewood-Myrtlewood comes with a deluxe hardshell case.
The Breedlove Concert is the original Breedlove shape. It first appeared in 1992, and has been the best-selling Breedlove body shape ever since. Designed specifically for the fingerstylist to be well-balanced, compact and comfortable to play, it generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The unique construction also allows the Concert to sing even at a full strum. If you’re a fingerstylist, or are seeking an instrument to use as vocal accompaniment, this is the shape for you. The Concert is engineered to provide exceptional sustain with a pronounced bass response, both of which can be achieved with a light touch.
Myrtlewood, umbellularia californica, formerly oreodaphne californica, originates in the western United States in Northern California and Oregon. Myrtlewood offers a strong fundamental with a powerful voice. Similar to maple, it has a clear and bright voice with superb projection and sustain, and offers a full and balanced sound. A versatile non-traditional tonewood, it is a favorite for many styles of playing. Myrtle has very unique and widely varied figure – no two sets are alike. Coloration ranges from blonde to taupe.
Breedlove guitar necks feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. Unlike traditional dovetail neck joints that require major surgery for a neck re-set, it is easy to adjust the play action and neck angle with the Breedlove bolt-on neck and single-action truss rod. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish contributes to ideal playability – the finish process alone takes three days, including precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.
This headstock isn’t just a pretty shape – it’s specifically designed to keep the strings in a straight, even line from the nut to the tuning pegs. The result is even tension, stable tuning and ease of alternate tuning.
Just like fingerprints, no two myrtlewood guitars are alike. Order your unique Breedlove today.
