This guitar is from Breedlove's "Organic" series and is their largest body size, the Concerto. It was traded into us by a customer who decided to go with a smaller body guitar. When it came to us the bridge was lifting (likely due to not being humidified properly), and was reglued by our luthier. The guitar also has two shallow finish cracks along the fretboard (pictured). These are stable and not of structural concern.
The guitar is set up quite well and plays nicely. Gig bag is included! New price on this model is $799.
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.

The Breedlove Organic Wildwood Series is sustainably sourced with FSC-certified African mahogany from the Congo River Basin, the world’s second largest rainforest. Curiously, it provides the classic sound of Americana, with all-mahogany guitars known for warm midrange tones that perfectly support a voice. Favored by folkies, roots rockers and songwriters, mahogany instruments are versatile, with a bold timbre, a crisp attack and strong string-to-string definition. Wildwoods—featuring soft cutaways—sound great strummed or picked, and, accented by tortoise binding, have a simple, straight-grained look as rich as their tone.
