The allure of a "pre-war" guitar? Most of that comes from the robust, powerful sound of an Adirondack spruce top. With an unmatched stiffness to weight ratio, Adirondack has put the energy behind hot bluegrass licks since the beginning. Now, coupled with Breedlove's Sound Optimization, Adirondack is ready to thrill you with a lifetime of playing. And it rewards a heavy attack with an explosive response. There's nothing like it.
Concerto Body Shape
Loud, textured and supremely satisfying, Breedlove's proprietary Concerto delivers more volume and more nuance than the standard classic dreadnought. Their largest body shape retains trademark Breedlove playing comfort while summoning a lush, complex tonal response.
Adirondack (Red) Spruce Top
In a word-power. Red spruce breaks in with play, becoming ever richer, but from the start it offers the most energy of any guitar top, with a famously explosive dynamic range and a clear, balanced voice.
East Indian Rosewood Back & Sides
The familiar scooped sound profile of a classic dreadnought comes largely from East Indian rosewood, which emphasizes round bass tones and clear trebles, leaving a valley custom made for the human voice. The same carefully sourced qualities offer presence and definition to smaller bodies, along with great dynamic range.
