2023 Breedlove - Organic Pro Artista Concerto Electric - Burnt Amber Burst
No. 3004, includes deluxe black Tolex hardshell case. This model is with ALL SOLID SUSTAINABLE WOODS.
Myrtlewood grows in Oregon along a 90 mile stretch of the Pacific Ocean coast. It is Breedlove’s favorite tonewood for backs and sides. In addition to its highly varied color patterns extenuated by the thin Burnt Amber Burst finish, Myrtle delivers surprising energy and extraordinary tonal balance. To further boost the high-energy sound, we chose a European Maple neck—which is denser than mahogany—and an Ovangkol fretboard and bridge. Of course, the top is European Spruce for responsive, powerful projection. We spared no detail, including brass inlays, Fishman Flex Plus-T Electronics, and a travel-ready hardshell case.

Sustainable & Clear Cut Free Made from sustainably-sourced exotic and native tonewoods. No clear-cut trees are used in these instruments. Breedlove uses salvaged and individually harvested timber and has deep relationships with responsible suppliers around the globe. As we move towards sustainability across all lines, owner Tom Bedell has visited 15 countries to discover exactly where the wood comes from, how it is selected and harvested, and how this affects the wildlife, the community, the forest and the planet.
Why do Breedlove guitars sound so good? It’s simple, Breedlove guitars—from Legacy to Discovery—are made with care, with the goal of allowing you to play better, sound better and play more. But it’s also complex, with art, inspiration, craft and science merging together in service of tone. Made in Bend models feature Sound Optimization® and are hand voiced, with experienced luthiers meticulously tapping, listening and shaving away tiny curls of exquisite tonewood as they target specific, measurable frequencies that will make each unique, individual instrument sound its very best. Various wood species are carefully milled, weighed and considered, with backs and tops tuned to each other to create light, responsive guitars with superior tone and sustain. When you play a Breedlove Premier, or sit down with an Oregon, it answers your lightest touch and its notes sing for an eternity, because a Breedlove builder has made sure it will inspire you every time you open the case.
