The Breedlove Discovery S Concerto Edgeburst CE European-African mahogany
The Breedlove Discovery S Concerto Edgeburst CE is all you could want in a first guitar—or a new favorite guitar—and more! Crafted with earth-conscious, sonically superior EcoTonewood technology, this instrument—in a distinctive gloss Edgeburst finish that helps you stand out from the crowd—is Designed in Bend with serious strumming in mind. A stylish soft cutaway, slim, fast neck and narrow nut width facilitate easy play; a solid European spruce top produces classic, thrilling tone and projection. Great acoustic sound encourages you to play better, sound better and play more, and Fishman Presys I electronics let you rock as loud as you’d like. Discover the Breedlove ECO Collection—where the guitar meets the forest.
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.
Along with its body shape, a guitar’s top is the defining element of its sound, driving, through its vibration, the key aspects of volume, tone, sustain and projection. Spruce will, due in part to its famous stiffness-to-weight ratio, ring loud and clear. A solid wood top translates those vibrations with more immediacy and purity of tone, and reacts more directly with the intent of a player. If you are at an intermediate level or above, you will appreciate the instantly recognizable benefits of a solid wood top.
Introducing the 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.
Starting in late June 2022, this model will transition at retail from Sitka spruce to European spruce as we continually work to update our guitars with the most sustainable sourcing available on the market. Rest assured any ECO Collection guitar uses only fully sustainable, clear-cut free tonewoods.
