The fine folks over at Acoustic Guitar created this review of our all myrtlewood Concerto acoustic guitar. The extra stiffness of the myrtlewood top drives this guitar by moving more air inside the 5 inch deep body in the lower bout. It sounds like a speaker is projecting the textured notes through the smaller sound hole. Engineered for big lush sound, playability and comfort, the Oregon Concerto is a breakthrough guitar you will want to experience.
Acoustic Guitar noted, “With the recent introduction of the all-myrtlewood Breedlove Concerto, the Oregon-based guitar company became the first large-scale US manufacturer to incorporate this intriguing tonewood in a production line of instruments. But the Concerto also is distinctive for another reason: Breedlove owner Tom Bedell and his team of guitar designers have created a new body shape—which tapers from an impressive five inches deep at the endpin to just under four inches at the joint of the hard-rock maple neck—that produces a big, beautiful sound when coupled with all of that cool, coastal myrtlewood.”
