OVERVIEW

A beautiful concert body with single cutaway and slim neck for more playability, and gorgeous sunburst for more visual appeal.

Designed for recorded acoustic guitar performances, the Studio Concert captures all the sparkling detail and nuance of your performance. The maple back and sides offer a clear, precise tone that rises above the mix. This instrument shines when both micd with your favorite external condenser mic and when plugged in using the Fishman INK3 USB.

Body Shape
The Breedlove Concert is the original Breedlove shape. It first appeared in 1992, and has been the best-selling Breedlove body shape ever since. Designed specifically for the fingerstylist to be well-balanced, compact, and comfortable to play, it generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The unique construction also allows the Concert to sing even at a full strum. If you'e a fingerstylist, or are seeking an instrument to use as vocal accompaniment, this is the shape for you. The Concert is engineered to provide exceptional sustain with a pronounced bass response, both of which can be achieved with a light touch. The graduated top works in harmony with the Breedlove Bridge Truss to provide an even response throughout the lows, mids, and highs, with sustain, and clear, concise, note-for-note projection.

Breedlove Bridge Truss
The Breedlove Bridge Truss (BBT) reduces tension on the soundboard of the guitar, so the top wood is able to vibrate more freely, producing remarkable sustain, balance, and clarity. The BBT also allows for a thinner graduated top, thereby allowing Breedlove craftsmen to bring out the optimal sound from the top wood without sacrificing structural stability. Relieving much of the string tension from the bridge prevents "bridge belly," ensuring top stability for decades. Guitar strings can exert up to 230 pounds of pull from the nut to the bridge. Traditional methods for preventing top bowing at the bridge usually involve heavy internal bracing and thicker tops. The BBT compensates for this pressure in an innovative way: The BBT is mounted to the bridge from the inside and is connected into the tail block of the guitar, pulling downward on the underside of the bridge to distribute some of the tension, relieving pressure on the top. The resulting tonal effect on BBT-equipped guitars is more resonance and livelier sound with enhanced overtones.

Top Woods
Sitka spruce, picea sitchensis, originates in the northwest United States. Sitka spruce has been the primary top wood for American-made instruments for decades. It is strong and light with extended harmonic content, and it nearly equals the power of Adirondack. It offers a strong, focused tone with a solid fundamental -- perfect for flatpicking styles. When compared with European spruce, Sitka delivers warmer, more fundamental sound, largely free of overtones. Sitka takes a slightly longer period of playing time to open up. It has a straight uniform grain and coloration ranges from white to pink to light brown.

Breedlove Pinless Bridge
The Breedlove Pinless Bridge helps maintain the integrity of the top by eliminating the need for six drilled string holes. The fewer holes in your soundboard, the more evenly the sound wave can move across the interior, without any loss of energy. The Breedlove Pinless Bridge also provides a gentler string-break angle from the bridge to the top of the saddle, reducing saddle strain. This innovative bridge also makes string changes a breeze, especially on 12 strings. Plus, you™ll never again have to worry about lost, worn-out, or broken bridge pins.

Breedlove Neck
Breedlove guitars feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish also contributes to ideal playability. The labor-intensive finish process includes precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.

    Comments about Breedlove 2015 Studio Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Fantastic guitar! Quality cannot be overstated. I have owned more guitars than I can count and this one is among the best I've had. Very bright, but still enough low end. This is not a all mahogany dreadnought type sound/volume, but fantastic for its intended purpose of cutting through a mix.

        Comments about Breedlove 2015 Studio Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        Over the past few years, I have relied heavily on a pair of Takamine ETN-series guitars for all of my acoustic needs (practice, live shows, recordings, etc.). I was recently in the market for a backup acoustic that I could use on stage. I was on a budget, so I was hoping to keep the price under a grand. After trying some Taylors, Martins, Takamines and Yamahas in this range, I took a look at Breedlove's imported Studio Concert series. I was attracted to it because the body shape, feel and neck profile all worked well with my style of playing. I also really liked the pinless bridge setup - a rarity on acoustics.

        I noticed that Musiciansfriend was offering a closeout price on a 2015 Breedlove Studio Concert in an attractive sunburst scheme, so I ordered one to compare it to my Taks. Wow, what a great purchase it has turned out to be! The setup on the guitar was perfect right out of the box (something I don't typically find on any acoustic guitar), and the fit/assembly on everything from the neck joint to the binding was exceptional. Though the body has a gloss finish the neck is satiny, so it doesn't get "sticky" in humid conditions. I was shocked at how bright and lively the tone was - especially given that the sides and back are figured maple. (The top is solid spruce.) I've played U.S.-made guitars with solid top/sides/back that didn't sound this nice. I was also pleasantly surprised how well this tone carried through when the guitar was plugged in.

        While I would still argue that the overall sound of my Japanese-made Takamine ETNs is still superior, this Korean-made Breedlove holds its ground pretty darn well. And, as mentioned earlier, the pinless bridge is wonderful. It gives me the peace of mind that the string will stay seated properly and not pop out of the instrument. All in all, this guitar offers a great value to anyone looking for a high-quality acoustic guitar in this price range. Check it out before you buy anything else.

          Guitar is fantastic for finger picking. Resonates very well and has a crisp sound. Sounds phenomenal running through a system.
