Default Breedlove Concerto E Frontier All Mahogany

This is an easy-playing, sweet-sounding guitar that should cost a lot more than it does. Breedlove all-solid Mahogany Frontier Concerto E. Mint. No marks found on this guitar. Kept in humidified case in my humidified studio, smoke/pet/child free. Bell like, balanced, loud with great sustain. Great for strumming, finger-picking or flat-picking. No deficit with this guitar. I hand-picked this from Tom Bedell at the 2018 NAMM Show. Comes in Breedlove case. $1,450 shipped/PayPal/CONUS. Hand built in Bend Oregon. This is the first all Mahogany guitar I've ever liked enough to purchase. Great sound acoustically and plugged in through its factory installed LR Baggs EAS VTC.

CONCERTO BODY SHAPE - for a guitar that would surpass the classic big body sound of the dreadnought. The idea was 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 a unique new sound profiling technology, Breedlove dials 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 all Mahogany, the Concerto shape lets each wood resonate in a way you’ve never heard before. I'm only selling to make room in the studio for other recently purchased guitars. Some trades will be considered.

Breedlove guitar necks feature a slimmer neck profile which makes for 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.

Nicest all-Mahogany guitar I've ever played. Saturday bump for your appreciation. Someone should grab this.

Offers answered. No trades - thank you - because I need to go down by one. Selling the great guitar has nothing to do with its quality. If you look at my signature you will see they, including this one, are all great. It is simply that one goes because one came in. This is not only great to play but it is a superb performance guitar amplified.
