The Breedlove Rainforest S Concert Papillon CE in African mahogany
Breedlove’s dazzling new acoustic electric Rainforest S Series, part of the sustainable ECO Collection, lets you do just that. Support the environment and sound better than ever with Breedlove’s earth-conscious, sonically superior EcoTonewood technology. A slim-necked, solid-topped all African mahogany Concert body matches trademark Breedlove comfort and versatility with the warm midrange focus favored by songwriters, roots rockers and folkies alike. Tap into your spirit! A stylish soft cutaway lets you reach every fret, and a shimmering stardust Papillon finish puts all the colorful beauty of the rainforest right into your hands. Have it all!
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.
