Exclusive Interview: Bert Lams of California Guitar Trio

The universe of guitar knows no boundaries for The California Guitar Trio. Since 1991, the group has enthralled listeners with a singular sound that fearlessly crisscrosses genres.

Premier Guitar Awards Concerto Coveted Premier Gear Award

Premier Guitar Awards Concerto Coveted Premier Gear Award

By Adam Perlmutter | May 01, 2017 The first thing I noticed about the Breedlove Premier Concerto is how eminently playable it is. The neck is shallow, in a very good way, and it’s easy to play complex chord progressions and fast single-note runs, and to bend strings.

Three and Twenty Band Joins Breedlove Artist Roster

Staying true to their country roots, their writing is influenced by legendary artists like Hank Williams Jr., Johnny Cash, Alabama, and Lynyrd Skynyrd; combine that with hip hop influences like Bone Thugs N Harmony and Dr.Dre, then add soulful harmonies inspired by Boyz II Men and Brian McKnight and you’ll appreciate the eclectic, good ol' boy, rowdy back-road realism with a touch of “southern swang” (southern swagger with a twang) that makes 3 and Twenty appealing to all...

Musician & Engineer Luke Basile Describes Benefits of Concerto Body Shape

About the Concerto Body Shape 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.
