OVERVIEW

An inspired acoustic-electric with special finish.

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.
