Breedlove Performer Concerto Bourbon CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar, Torrefied European Spruce - African Mahogany (USED)


Our Notes: This guitar comes from MIRC, a partner of Breedlove Guitars'. The MIRC, which stands for Musical Instrument Reclamation Corporation, significantly influences the supply within the used guitar market which gives buyers access to high-quality, used instruments at affordable prices. There is a 2" long finish blem on the back/bottom-left quadrant. It is smooth and under the clear coat. See photos.

Breedlove’s largest body style delivers all it promises. In a high gloss Performer configuration—with eye-catching Bourbon stain—it will solidly back the largest ensemble or provide classic support for a solo singer/songwriter. Like a dreadnought, the Performer Concerto Bourbon CE has a slightly scooped EQ, creating a comfortable valley for your voice, and providing an incisive tone for your solos. A pinless African ebony bridge leaves room for damping and makes for lightning fast string changes, while Natural Sound electronics translate that great torrefied tone to practice amp or PA. Whether you are on stage in front of thousands or just in front of your mirror, the Performer Concerto Bourbon CE will take you there.

Sustainable & Clear Cut Free
Made from sustainably-sourced exotic and native tonewoods. No clear-cut trees are used in these instruments. Breedlove uses salvaged and individually harvested timber and has deep relationships with responsible suppliers around the globe. As we move towards sustainability across all lines, owner Tom Bedell has visited 15 countries to discover exactly where the wood comes from, how it is selected and harvested, and how this affects the wildlife, the community, the forest and the planet.


Product Features:


REAL SOLID TONEWOODS FOR SUPERIOR SOUND

No Richlite or resin impregnated softwoods, no glue-heavy plywoods: just solid real tonewoods for real tone.

NATURAL SOUND ELECTRONICS

New Breedlove Natural-Sound electronics with volume and tone controls, and easy battery replacement uses 2 x AAA batteries.

TORREFIED EUROPEAN SPRUCE

As a guitar top, European spruce is powerful like Adirondack, clear like Sitka, and complex and responsive like Engelmann, all of which are employed in various Breedlove guitar lines. Torrefied European spruce graces the Artista, Performer and Signature Series in Breedlove’s new Organic Collection of sustainably sourced, all solid wood guitars at revolutionary prices. Torrefaction, a thermal process that artificially ages the wood while also turning it more resilient, makes these instruments explode with vintage tone, singing like an old friend that’s been played by a master for 30 years. With the Organic Collection three years in the making, Breedlove owner Tom Bedell literally climbed a mountain to be positive that the exotic FSC-certified tonewoods used in the assortment are harvested in responsible ways that respect the earth, while providing for superior tone that will last a lifetime. High in the windblown Swiss Alps, Bedell watched as European spruce trees were individually selected—each yielding many dozens of top sets—with an eye towards keeping the old growth stands robust for decades to come.

AFRICAN MAHOGANY

Sometimes called khaya, African mahogany has a familiar crisp, clean and warm voice and boasts an impressive versatility, taking well to fingerpicking as well as to a more robust strumming attack without losing clarity. All mahogany instruments—like the Organic Collection Wildwood Series (which features sustainably harvested wood source from the Republic of Congo) offer a natural compression that delights blues players, folkies and singer/songwriters.

CONCERT BODY SHAPE

The Concert is our most popular body shape, favored by players because it is well-balanced, compact, comfortable to play, and offers all the qualities of a great sounding guitar. It generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The Concert works well when played fingerstyle, as vocal accompaniment, or at a full strum.
