Adirondack Spruce - Koa

Legacy Concerto CE

The Legacy Concerto is an enigma. Its design is beautiful. It is comfortable to play. Its music is sweet, complex and textured. Yet its voice is full, loud and ever-present. The power of the Adirondack spruce top matched with the sweetness of Hawaiian koa results in a unique instrument, different from any you have ever played before. The larger air volume in the lower bout, allows notes to resonate and be enriched by the developing overtones. The Legacy Concerto accommodates heavy strumming, yet sings with a lighter touch, while delivering a warmer louder sound than traditional dreadnoughts.

Heavy Play Style

The Breedlove Play Style system was created to help you, the player, select your sound and playing style. Finding the most appropriate guitar to fit your sound requires finding not only the correct body shape, but the proper tonewood combinations to fit your style of play. Each Breedlove guitar is designed for a specific play style and sound, the Play Style systems assign a playing style icon to each instrument.

H | Heavier Play, Strumming: Historically, larger guitars are designed for bigger sound and stronger play. Breedlove can achieve this robust playing style on the guitar body shape that is most comfortable to the player.
