All-solid myrtlewood acoustic-electric with torrefied European spruce top, soft cutaway and Natural Sound electronics.
The exotic look of native Oregon myrtlewood and torrefied European spruce top are as intriguing and exciting as the sound of the Artista Concertina Natural Shadow CE. In tandem with the instrument's hard rock maple neck, myrtlewood offers unparalleled clarity and drive under the "roasted" top. It's a wow combination for a small body, and the experienced player will find new avenues of expression, with the short scale and soft cutaway putting string-bending, vibrato and jazzier voicing in easy reach right up the top fret. This Breedlove Organic Collection model places a luxury instrument in your lap at what we here at Musician's Friend would say is an astoundingly affordable price.
Oregon myrtlewood that's sustainably sourced with a torrefied topAt Musician's Friend, we love that no clear-cut woods are used in the Breedlove Organic Collection, only sustainably sourced all-solid FSC Certified exotic tonewoods and native myrtlewood. But we're even more impressed with the sound. A dynamic torrefied Natural Shadow Burst European spruce top gains even more sonic oomph from the magic myrtlewood blend of rosewood's thump, mahogany's clarity and maple's shine. Oregon myrtlewood works beautifully against torrefied spruce, especially in the Breedlove Artista Concertina acoustic-electric.
Unfettered access to all frets with a soft cutaway designThe Breedlove soft cutaway design gives you smooth and comfortable access to all 18 frets on this Artista Concertina model. With its soft cutaway and fast neck, this model puts you directly in touch with your muse. Its sheer visual charisma makes it hard to put down.
Optimized for sound and built for performanceBreedlove Natural Sound electronics will help you sound better and play more by placing controls right where you need them—in the soundhole for quick, on-the-strum access. Volume and tone are easily addressed with soundhole-mounted controls.
