Well balanced between strumming and fingerstyle play, the Exclusive Run LE Oregon Concert CE Myrtlewood guitar is designed for the guitarist who wants a versatile guitar with a unique sound. Hand-crafted in small batches by Breedlove's dedicated craftsmen. Breedlove crafts most guitars with a versatile all-purpose sound and feel.
Myrtlewood offers a strong fundamental with a powerful voice. Grown in the northwest, it is a favorite for many styles of playing and is used primarily for back and sides. Similar to maple, it is clear and bright with superb projection and sustain, and offers a very full and balanced sound. Highly unique, no two sets are alike.
About The Oregon Series
Breedlove’s most popular USA-Made acoustic-electric guitars, this award-winning series is available in each of our revolutionary body shapes and come in variations of Sitka spruce tops with myrtlewood back and sides, or all myrtlewood with cutaway and non-cutaway models, burst models and seasonal limited editions. Myrtlewood is the tonewood foundation for an innovative sound that is reminiscent of rosewood with pronounced bass, strong midrange and brilliant highs that sit well in the mix without being too bright or overpowering. Studio musicians and sound engineers rave about the balanced, clean note-for-note tone, while touring musicians and enthusiasts alike marvel at the pure, clean sound. Visually, each myrtlewood guitar is uniquely distinct. A hand-finished maple neck provides a strong playing foundation, and the sound of the guitar stays true when amplified through the highly reliable LR Baggs EAS VTC electronics. You will sound better, play better, and play more on a Breedlove Oregon Series guitar.
About the Concert Body Shape
The Concert is our most popular body shape, favored by players because it is well-balanced, compact, comfortable to play, and offers all the qualities of a great sounding guitar. It generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The Concert works well when played fingerstyle, as vocal accompaniment, or at a full strum.
Crafting Guitars to Fit Your Play Style
With Sound Optimization™, Breedlove individually selects and prepares each guitar top with the right stiffness (deflection) for the body shape and the playing style you prefer – more stiffness for stronger strumming - heavier play; more forgiveness for fingerstyle and lighter play.
Breedlove guitar necks feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. Unlike traditional dovetail neck joints that require major surgery for a neck re-set, it is easy to adjust the play action and neck angle with the Breedlove bolt-on neck and single-action truss rod. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish contributes to ideal playability – the finish process alone takes three days, including precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.
