Product Description for the Breedlove Oregon Concerto E Sitka-Myrtlewood

Oregon Concerto E Guitars

This breakthrough Oregon Concerto design adds volume, power and a more textured voice. Like all Breedlove Concertos, the Sitka spruce top has been SOUND PROFILED to marry efficiently with the myrtlewood back. The result is a huge sound, comfortable to play and alive in the players hands.

Body Shape

When we set out to create a guitar that would surpass the classic big body sound of the dreadnought, we didn’t just want it to be loud. We sought to bring out more tonal complexity, and to offer a much more comfortable playing experience, too. Introducing the new Breedlove Concerto, a new guitar shape created to elicit more volume than a classic dreadnought, and more lush, complex tonal resonance in a comfortable body shape that feels just right. Loud, textured, and supremely satisfying.

Using our unique new sound profiling technology, we dial in just the right frequency for each piece of exotic tonewood, bringing out its special characteristics so you hear not just volume, but a palette of distinct tonal flavors. Crafted from woods like myrtlewood, mahogany, rosewood, koa, cocobolo, and Brazilian, the Concerto shape lets each wood resonate in a way you’ve never heard before.

Sound Profiling

With the goal of crafting the world’s finest guitars, we have applied breakthrough technology that takes sound creation to a whole new level. The debut of our 2017 BIG SOUND instruments reveals the results from work by leading experts, research institutions and our own experimentation. We’ve advanced the creation and projection of sound and complexity of tone by working with—instead of against—the variability in the woods from forests around the world.

Music wood varies substantially among species, within trees of the same species and within an individual tree. Each tree has its unique life span experience. There is as much as a 30% variance in the density and frequency of tonewood cut to the same dimension within the same tree.

Most guitar production companies ignore these complex inconsistencies, cutting their tops and backs to a uniform, pre-determined dimension. At Breedlove, we embraced a far more complicated process, setting a new standard aimed at getting the most music out of every instrument we build. We have learned to capitalize on variation, developing exclusive technology: Breedlove SOUND PROFILING. Learn more.

Breedlove Neck

Breedlove guitar necks feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. Unlike traditional dovetail neck joints that require major surgery for a neck re-set, it is easy to adjust the play action and neck angle with the Breedlove bolt-on neck and single-action truss rod. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish contributes to ideal playability – the finish process alone takes three days,

Back And Side Woods

Myrtlewood, umbellularia californica, formerly oreodaphne californica, originates in the western United States in Northern California and Oregon. Myrtlewood offers a strong fundamental with a powerful voice. Similar to maple, it has a clear and bright voice with superb projection and sustain, and offers a full and balanced sound. A versatile non-traditional tonewood, it is a favorite for many styles of playing. Myrtle has very unique and widely varied figure – no two sets are alike. Coloration ranges from blonde to taupe.

Top Wood

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.
