Acoustic Guitar: Pursuit Concert Koa Review
From the October 2016 issue of Acoustic Guitar | BY ADAM PERLMUTTER One run through Mary Flowers’ “My Bluebird,” a blues in G major, finds Breedlove’s Concert Koa to be well-suited for fingerpicking. Same with J.J. Cale’s “Call Me the Breeze,” with its classic shuffle pattern. The guitar’s ample midrange is nice in this context, with a snap and crispness that lends itself well to palm muting. Those are two songs that I had notated in the August issue of this magazine, and the ease and comfort of the Concert Koa with both shows this instrument can be versatile. You can see why in the construction: It glows with intensely figured and richly colored koa and abalone purfling, and its rosette inlay work. It’s a jewel of a guitar, for sure, and a highly functional tool—no big surprise coming from a forward-thinking guitar maker like Breedlove. The Pursuit Concert Koa is the latest member of Breedlove’s series of affordable guitars designed at the company’s Oregon...
Worship Guitar Magazine reviews the Oregon Concert Guitar
Worship Guitar Magazine recently reviewed the Oregon Concert, voted 2015 Acoustic Guitar of the year, and Aaron Lehman goes into great detail in the review. He also awarded the Oregon Concert 9.2 out of 10! Check out the full review below. By Aaron Lehman , June 30, 2016 | From worshipgtr.com I have owned a Breedlove Atlas Series C250CR for the past 7+ years and it has been an absolute tank of an acoustic guitar. I have had a very strong love of Breedlove guitars ever since I sold them 5 or so years back at a music store I managed. They have always been extremely well built and more affordable than everything out there. Well overtime the electronics in my C250 went bad and recently I decided it was time that it was time to retire that old guitar and use it for when I want to sit around the campfire. I began doing some research on what I wanted. I knew that Breedlove recently went through some transitions as a business and new ownership was involved so I decided to exclude them from my immediate search. After looking at Taylor and...

Acoustic Guitar Reviews the Journey Concert Acoustic Guitar
May 17, 2016 | Acoustic Guitar | By Adam Perlmutter Review: Breedlove’s Journey Concert Brazilian Rosewood Is a Tonewood Treat When I first played Breedlove’s new Journey Concert, I was reminded of the depth of sound that a set of Dalbergia nigra—or Brazilian rosewood—back and sides lends to a steel-string acoustic guitar. The bass notes have an unmistakable oomph, as if the guitar is outfitted with a subwoofer, and overall, it’s lush, ringing sound makes putting it down a challenging proposition. A Rare & Coveted Tonewood Brazilian rosewood was the tonewood of choice for the backs and sides of guitars by Martin and other makers from the 1800s through the 1960s, when supplies grew thin due to overharvesting. In 1969, Martin discontinued the use of Brazilian rosewood in favor of Indian rosewood, and since then the company has used Brazilian only for it’s occasional limited-edition series, as have other guitar makers. In 1992, Brazilian rosewood was added to the CITES treaty (the Convention on...
Guitar World Review: Paul Riario Demos Breedlove’s Pursuit Concert Koa Guitar
Posted 04/27/2016 by Guitar World Staff. In this new video, Guitar World's Paul Riario demos Breedlove's Pursuit Concert Koa acoustic model. For musicians seeking amazing power with a clear and sweet tone, acoustically and plugged in, the Pursuit Concert Koa is a true reflection of Breedlove’s distinctively crafted sound. Its solid koa top and koa back and sides “open up” the more the instrument is played, expanding the midrange, for an even richer, sweeter tone over time. The stunning beauty of the figured koa make the Pursuit Concert KK a work of art as well as an extraordinary musical instrument. Includes built-in Fishman Isys + USB port for amplification and easy interfacing with recording software.
