OVERVIEW

Relatively unadorned with quality electronics and a radically thin top for great response and projection.

Breedlove’s goal in designing and building the USA Concert was to craft the most textured big sound in a Breedlove Concert acoustic guitar ever in the lightest guitar body possible. Handcrafted in Bend, Oregon, the USA project is notable even among Breedlove’s many successful designs. Equipped with an L.R. Baggs pickup system.

Sound frequencies travel most efficiently through lighter materials. With this in mind, Breedlove designers sought a solution for the USA Series that would reduce weight and bring the acoustic guitar to life in a player’s hands. Through this search, the designers achieved the thinnest finish to date on a Breedlove; just 5 mils on top and 2 mils for the back and sides.

The tops are thinner, the backs a little thicker and the sound hole smaller, and yet they still hit the target fundamental resonant frequency for textured big sound. With minimized binding and decoration, it is available at a surprising value. Coming in at just 3.5 pounds, the Breedlove USA Series instruments are almost 25% lighter than the Breedlove Premier Concert Mahogany, which is crafted with the same wood pairings.

        Comments about Breedlove USA Concert Fire Light E Mahogany - Mahogany Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I'll be the first to say that this is how I always wanted a hog guitar to sound. It has the deep low growl on the bass end and the sparkling trebles. The mids are present but not dominant. It has the mellowed out sound that only mahogany can produce but is not muted at all. It's the best of what's good about the other two brands hogs combined. It projects well and accompanies the voice wonderfully.
        I was concerned that it would be fragile considering that it states the top is thinner. This doesn't seem to be the case at all. In fact it feels just as sturdy as any other guitar I own, just a lot lighter.
        The lows are deeper than my dread. The pickup is good too and replicates the natural sound nicely. It's a popular pickup so you can read those reviews too if you like.
        I wasn't sure about it at first but after a set up and new strings it's now in my top two favorites of my 8 guitar collection!
