Breedlove's Premier Concertina Copper E Sitka Spruce – East Indian Rosewood is a professional grade acoustic-electric guitar delivering a surprisingly alive, balanced and resonate sound from a guitar designed for a light playing style.
The smaller body Concertina is surprisingly comfortable to hold and play, yet loud and full of unexpected, room-filling projection.
Using our Sound Optimization process, our craftsmen found the right frequency separation between the Sitka spruce top and East Indian rosewood back and sides to maximize the classic robust sound desired by the professional touring artist and the studio musician, to the collector or weekend hobbyist.
With a shorter neck – 12 frets to the body – it has a string tension that makes playing so enjoyable, you will not want to put this guitar down.
All Premier models come standard with the highly reliable LR Baggs EAS VTC electronics and can travel safely in a Breedlove hard shell case specially designed for each Breedlove revolutionary body shape. You will sound better, play better and play more on a Breedlove Premier Series acoustic-electric guitar.
It feels like home. It blossoms, full of rich bass, singing trebles and even a hint of natural reverb in its beautiful wash of overtones. Premier Series guitars, made in Bend, with deluxe Breedlove hardshell cases, are based on incomparable East Indian Rosewood backs and sides, paired with crisp, clear Sitka spruce. Honduran mahogany necks, African ebony fingerboards and bridges, and Breedlove Sound Optimization make each Premier—fitted with LR Baggs EAS VTC electronics—first in class.
Sitka Spruce Top
The world’s most popular topwood, for a reason. Sitka has an ideal strength-to-weight ratio, yielding a strong fundamental, high velocity of sound and a pleasing elasticity. Translation? Sitka sounds great for heavy strumming, light fingerpicking and everything in between.
East Indian Rosewood Back & Sides
The familiar scooped sound profile of a classic dreadnought comes largely from East Indian rosewood, which emphasizes round bass tones and clear trebles, leaving a valley custom made for the human voice. The same carefully sourced qualities offer presence and definition to smaller bodies, along with great dynamic range.
The Breedlove Neck
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.
