Premier Concerto Copper E Guitars
During our research work to master the Concerto design, the Premier Concerto Copper was our key. With many dreadnoughts built with this wood combination, it was critical that our goal of enhanced sound, feel and comfort was perfected with the Premier Concerto Copper. Every step of our development process was essential to accomplish the amazing big lush sound and tonal complexity of the Premier Concerto Copper.

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. Introducing the new Breedlove Concerto, a new guitar shape created to elicit more volume than a classic dreadnought, and more lush, complex tonal resonance in a comfortable body shape that feels just right. Loud, textured, and supremely satisfying.
Using our unique new sound profiling technology, we dial in just the right frequency for each piece of exotic tonewood, bringing out its special characteristics so you hear not just volume, but a palette of distinct tonal flavors. Crafted from woods like myrtlewood, mahogany, rosewood, koa, cocobolo, and Brazilian, the Concerto shape lets each wood resonate in a way you’ve never heard before.
Breedlove guitar necks feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. Unlike traditional dovetail neck joints that require major surgery for a neck re-set, it is easy to adjust the play action and neck angle with the Breedlove bolt-on neck and single-action truss rod. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish contributes to ideal playability – the finish process alone takes three days, including precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.

I wanted something tonally and ergonomically between a Taylor 414ce-R (Sitka / Rosewood / Grand Auditorium) and an Eastman E10D (Adirondack / Mahogany / Dreadnought). I thought I wanted a Martin and looked hard for one that fit. I was willing to pay the premium. I tried the OM-21, 000-28 and related models. But they didn't speak to me like this guitar and I kept coming back to it. The sound, neck, action and appointments drew me in. And I like the pickup with no additional holes or external controls. In comparison to other options, it's more for less and that's great, but not why I bought it. I bought it because I didn't want to put this guitar down.
