Breedlove’s Premier Series pairs together incredible craftsmanship with high-end electronics, all dressed up with looks to kill.
This guitar, to put it simply, plays amazingly well, sounds incredibly good, and looks awsome. The immaculate construction and the extremely high-quality LR Baggs preamp system allows you to transparently and accurately convey the beautiful tone of this guitar through amplification or a PA system. The warmth of the rosewood back and sides and vibrancy and dynamics of the spruce top all translate clearly, transparently, and beautifully through the preamp.
Breedlove's neck shapes are a bit narrower/thinner than traditional acoustics and almost play more like an electric. The fretwork and craftsmanship is top-notch to allow for very low action for some more dynamic fingerstyle playing (or, of course, you can raise it up a bit for harder strumming). It will both inspire you and allow you to play for hours on end without having to worry about hand fatigue.
New for 2018, the guitars in Breedlove's Premier series are now getting the Sound Optimization process that Breedlove has championed and pioneered over the past couple of years. In short, what this means, is that each of these guitars is built as an individual. Every piece of wood is analyzed for its density and tonal properties. So, for example, the thickness of every single spruce top will not be identical. They will each be built to the exact specifications that are needed so that the individual and particular pieces of wood being used for that specific guitar are constructed at their optimal measurements. This creates incredible consistency and you don't need to try out 20 different ones of the same guitar to find that magical one.
They call it Sound Optimization... we call it magic...
During our research work to master the Concerto design, the Premier Concerto Copper was our key. With many dreadnoughts built with this wood combination, it was critical that our goal of enhanced sound, feel and comfort was perfected with the Premier Concerto Copper. Every step of our development process was essential to accomplish the amazing big lush sound and tonal complexity of the Premier Concerto Copper.
When we set out to create a guitar that would surpass the classic big body sound of the dreadnought, we didn’t just want it to be loud. We sought to bring out more tonal complexity, and to offer a much more comfortable playing experience, too. Introducing the new Breedlove Concerto, a new guitar shape created to elicit more volume than a classic dreadnought, and more lush, complex tonal resonance in a comfortable body shape that feels just right. Loud, textured, and supremely satisfying.
Using our unique new sound profiling technology, we dial in just the right frequency for each piece of exotic tonewood, bringing out its special characteristics so you hear not just volume, but a palette of distinct tonal flavors. Crafted from woods like myrtlewood, mahogany, rosewood, koa, cocobolo, and Brazilian, the Concerto shape lets each wood resonate in a way you’ve never heard before.
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.
