The Breedlove USA Oregon Concerto CE delivers the big, lush, full body sound of all Concertos, with the power of Sitka spruce! You will not find a vintage or current guitar in this price range with this big a balanced sound. It just takes a few strums and picking the strings to appreciate what Sound Optimization™ has accomplished with these magnificent guitars.
By far the most commonly used top wood, Sitka spruce has an exceptional strength to weight ratio. Growing in southeast Alaska’s temperate rainforest, it grows less than six inches a year, fighting its way through the dense old-growth forests. Growing straight and up to 300 feet tall, the age of the trees used by Breedlove are 400-600 years old. Breedlove never harvests one of these magnificent trees, but works directly with Alaska Specialty Woods to salvage blown down, dead trees from the forest floor. Coupling old-growth Sitka with the beautiful Myrtlewood results in instruments that have far surpassed traditional guitars in sound. Each Oregon series guitar is factory equipped with LR Baggs EAS VTC electronics and comes with a deluxe Breedlove hardshell case. You will sound better, play better, and play more on a Breedlove.
The Breedlove USA Oregon Concerto CE is hand crafted in Bend, Oregon.
