Product# J48708
OVERVIEW

Relatively unadorned with quality electronics and a radically thin top for great response and projection.

Breedlove’s goal in designing and building the USA Concert was to craft the most textured big sound in a Breedlove Concert acoustic guitar ever in the lightest guitar body possible. Handcrafted in Bend, Oregon, the USA project is notable even among Breedlove’s many successful designs. Equipped with an L.R. Baggs pickup system.

Sound frequencies travel most efficiently through lighter materials. With this in mind, Breedlove designers sought a solution for the USA Series that would reduce weight and bring the acoustic guitar to life in a player’s hands. Through this search, the designers achieved the thinnest finish to date on a Breedlove; just 5 mils on top and 2 mils for the back and sides.

The tops are thinner, the backs a little thicker and the sound hole smaller, and yet they still hit the target fundamental resonant frequency for textured big sound. With minimized binding and decoration, it is available at a surprising value. Coming in at just 3.5 pounds, the Breedlove USA Series instruments are almost 25% lighter than the Breedlove Premier Concert Mahogany, which is crafted with the same wood pairings.
