Adirondack Spruce - Cocobolo

Legacy Concertina Natural Shadow CE

After much research into a smaller body guitar shape, the Legacy Concertina is our pride and joy. It sparkles with surprising sound. With 12-frets to the body, the action begs to be played with enthusiasm. Our Sound Optimization® process enables us to sand our densest hard wood, cocobolo, to a thinness that delivers amazing power and depth. The Adirondack spruce top is fine tuned to give a deflection that brings this Concertina to life. Comfortable to play, a joy to hear, and beautiful to look at. Updated in 2020 with a soft cutaway.

Guitar Portrait

We are pleased to present these detailed specifications for your 2021 Breedlove guitar, which was designed and handcrafted in Bend, Oregon. In addition to its dimensions, we have listed every piece of solid wood used in this model, giving its common name, scientific name and country of origin. We use no clear-cut wood. We salvage fallen timber or individually harvest trees to minimize impact on the forest. You can travel worry free with your Made in Bend Breedlove—no permits are needed. Still, if you plan on trekking internationally, we suggest printing this information and carrying it with your guitar to avoid misunderstandings or prolonged waits with customs officials.
