This new spunky Breedlove USA Premier Concertina Acoustic Electric guitar delivers a surprisingly alive sound. The smaller body with a pronounced waist is so comfortable to hold, and by using their Sound Optimization™ process, Breedlove has found just the right frequency separation between the top and back on the thinner body. With the shorter neck – 12 frets to the body – it has a string tension that make it a joy to play, especially when performing the blues and playing with finger picks.
The East Indian rosewood back and sides, Sitka spruce top, Honduran mahogany neck, and African ebony fretboard is a truly classical recipe for a great six-string flattop acoustic guitar. The Breedlove difference is SOUND through their Sound Optimization™ process. Simply put, your music will sound better when played on a Breedlove Premier. Each Premier guitar comes factory equipped with LR Baggs EAS VTC electronics and a deluxe Breedlove hardshell case.
You will sound better, play better and play more on a Breedlove!
Note: In 2016 new regulations restricting the commercial trade in products containing rosewood were formalized among 183 nations participating in the CITES Convention. However, you need not be concerned with your new Breedlove. They are thorough in their sustainable wood sourcing, chain of custody management and record keeping. An exclusion was agreed upon allowing musicians to travel with their musical instrument with less than 22 pounds of rosewood content, (the largest Premier weighs less than five pounds in total) so you may travel the world freely without restriction. Should you ever want to sell your Premier internationally, you will need a permit, which Breedlove can assist you with directly.
