Custom Euro Spruce & Myrtlewood Nylon Concert Guitar (PO# 10634)

custom-guitar-concert-n15-breedlove_6Euro Spruce Top: European spruce is usually from the Dolomites in Italy, and is often thought of as the ultimate wood for classical guitars because of its light weight and stiffness, coupled with its very pale, even coloration. Provides a sound rich in overtones, focused, full of nuance and tone color — a sound often preferred by fingerpickers. It offers a quicker response and greater headroom than Engelmann. Usually takes a slightly longer period of playing time to open up than Engelmann or Sitka.

Myrtlewood Back and Sides: Myrtlewood offers a strong fundamental with a powerful voice. Grown in the northwest, it is a favorite for many styles of playing and is used primarily for back and sides. Similar to maple, it is clear and bright with superb projection and sustain, and offers a very full and balanced sound.

Concert Body Shape: The Concert is our most popular body shape, favored by players because it is well-balanced, compact, comfortable to play, and offers all the qualities of a great sounding guitar. It generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The Concert works well when played fingerstyle, as vocal accompaniment, or at a full strum.

Custom Extras: Mosaic Pin Inlay, Masterclass Koa bind package
