    Product Description

    Designed for performance, a stage-ready acoustic-electric with a distinct voice built on the original Breedlove Concert body shape.This versatile acoustic-electric Concert guitar is ready to be plugged in and played live. The electronics let you control your sound and translate the nuances of your playing to your audience, and the Breedlove semi-gloss neck allows for hours of comfortable play so you can focus on your performance.

    Body Shape
    The Breedlove Concert is the original Breedlove shape. It first appeared in 1992, and has been the best-selling Breedlove body shape ever since. Designed specifically for the fingerstylist to be well balanced, compact, and comfortable to play, it generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The unique construction also allows the Concert to sing even at a full strum. If you’re a fingerstylist, or are seeking an instrument to use as vocal accompaniment, this is the shape for you. The Concert is engineered to provide exceptional sustain with a pronounced bass response, both of which can be achieved with a light touch. The graduated top works in harmony with the Breedlove Bridge Truss to provide an even response throughout the lows, mids, and highs, with sustain, and clear, concise, note-for-note projection.

    Graduated Top
    Breedlove graduated tops contribute stunning balance from lows to highs. How? Graduated tops are slightly thicker on the treble side, balancing the higher energy treble frequencies with the lower energy bass frequencies traveling through the thinner bass side. The result: clearer, cleaner highs and stable, resonant lows. Because no two soundboards are exactly the same, Breedlove craftsmen evaluate each top for stiffness and density, and then graduate it accordingly. The amount of graduation is customized for each individual instrument. The top is sanded to the precise graduated thickness to achieve optimal flexibility and stiffness. This hands-on process is one of the major contributors to the Breedlove sound.

    Breedlove Bridge Truss
    The Breedlove Bridge Truss (BBT) reduces tension on the soundboard of the guitar, so the top wood is able to vibrate more freely, producing remarkable sustain, balance, and clarity. The BBT also allows for a thinner graduated top, thereby allowing Breedlove craftsmen to bring out the optimal sound from the top wood without sacrificing structural stability. Relieving much of the string tension from the bridge prevents “bridge belly,” ensuring top stability for decades. Guitar strings can exert up to 230 pounds of pull from the nut to the bridge. Traditional methods for preventing top bowing at the bridge usually involve heavy internal bracing and thicker tops. The BBT compensates for this pressure in an innovative way: The BBT is mounted to the bridge from the inside and is connected into the tail block of the guitar, pulling downward on the underside of the bridge to distribute some of the tension, relieving pressure on the top. The resulting tonal effect on BBT-equipped guitars is more resonance and livelier sound with enhanced overtones.

    Breedlove Pinless Bridge
    The Breedlove Pinless Bridge helps maintain the integrity of the top by eliminating the need for six drilled string holes. The fewer holes in your soundboard, the more evenly the sound wave can move across the interior, without any loss of energy. The Breedlove Pinless Bridge also provides a gentler string-break angle from the bridge to the top of the saddle, reducing saddle strain. This innovative bridge also makes string changes a breeze, especially on 12 strings. Plus, you’ll never again have to worry about lost, worn-out, or broken bridge pins.

    Breedlove Neck
    Breedlove guitar necks feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish also contributes to ideal playability. The labor-intensive finish process includes precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.

    Top Woods
    Sitka spruce, picea sitchensis, originates in the northwest United States. Sitka spruce has been the primary top wood for American-made instruments for decades. It is strong and light with extended harmonic content, and it nearly equals the power of Adirondack. It offers a strong, focused tone with a solid fundamental -- perfect for flatpicking styles. When compared with European spruce, Sitka delivers warmer, more fundamental sound, largely free of overtones. Sitka takes a slightly longer period of playing time to open up. It has a straight uniform grain and coloration ranges from white to pink to light brown.

    Not as great as I hoped
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Sounds/looks great. BUT, Had it less then 60 days opened the case and found the bridge had split in half. The design of the bridge dose not leave very much wood material to hold the (harmonica) style of the "string thru bridge" together. The top half simply split-apart leaving the bottom-half still attached to the body. Breedlove Warranty department replaces with same style bridge as the one that failed.

    Excellent quality acoustic for the money!!!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I purchased the Breedlove Black Magic Stage concert acoustic based on all the positive reviews here and other sites. Not only is this a "looker" but it is one of the easiest playing acoustics I own or have ever tested. But the tone is the real seller. This guitar sounds amazing and will only get better with age. Breedlove has a winner here and at the closeout price here at AMS of $599.00 it's also a steal.

    This guitar is the real deal. I played it at church plugged in to p,a, system awesome sounding every note is so well balanced. Just a great deal on this, thinking about getting the natural . I would say this sounds better than my taylor 214ce that I am paying almost double the price for.
