The Artista Concert Natural Shadow CE is a groundbreaking all-solid wood, versatile play-style, acoustic-electric guitar. Why is this instrument a game changer for players and changing the conversation on acoustic guitars? Simple. Custom sound, sustainably harvested woods at an approachable price point.
The Solid Myrtlewood, never sourced from clear cuts, is Breedlove’s favorite tonewood for backs and sides as it delivers surprising energy and extraordinary tonal balance in addition to its highly varied color patterns accentuated by the UV thin Natural Shadow Burst finish. To further boost the High-Energy sound, we have chosen a Hard Rock maple neck, which is denser than mahogany, and an African ebony fretboard and bridge. The FSC certified European spruce top is torrefied, resulting in a more mature sound and tone and a top that’s less susceptible to movement with humidification changes.
The highly versatile Concert body shape is suited for strumming and heavy play, but also shines as a fingerstyle guitar. Responsive to a light touch and strumming, this versatile guitar has outstanding nuance and note-to-note clarity.
The cutaway design gives access to all twenty frets. Breedlove’s Natural Sound Electronics sound better, are more reliable and put controls right where you need them – in the sound hole for quick on-the-strum access. You will sound better, play better, and play more on a Breedlove Artista Series guitar.
