The Breedlove Artista Concertina Natural Shadow CE is a groundbreaking all-solid wood, acoustic-electric guitar. This instrument is a game-changer for players. It's changing the conversation on acoustic guitars because of its simple, custom sound and sustainably harvested woods—all available at an approachable price point.
The solid myrtlewood used for this guitar—never sourced from clear cuts—is Breedlove's favorite tonewood to construct the back and sides of its guitars. Myrtlewood delivers surprising energy and extraordinary tonal balance in addition to its highly varied color patterns that are accentuated by the UV thin Natural Shadow Burst finish. To further boost the high-energy sound of this guitar, Breedlove chose a hard rock maple neck, which is denser than mahogany, and an African ebony fretboard and bridge.
Additionally, the FSC Certified European spruce top is torrefied, which results in a more mature sound and tone, and a top that's less susceptible to movement with humidification changes. This Breedlove's small Concertina body shape produces a clean, balanced and superb sound with a warm midrange tone. Additionally, the soft cutaway design gives access to all 18 frets. Breedlove's Natural Sound electronics sound better, are more reliable and put controls right where players need them—in the soundhole for quick on-the-strum access.
