Breedlove’s Artista Concert Natural Shadow CE is a groundbreaking all-solid wood, versatile play style, acoustic-electric guitar. This Breedlove acoustic-electric is changing the instrument game for players, and it’s changing the conversation on acoustic guitars in general. The reason this guitar is changing the game is simple: Custom sound and sustainably harvested woods—all available at an approachable price point.
The back and sides of this acoustic-electric guitar is solid myrtlewood, which is never sourced from clear cuts and is Breedlove’s tone of choice for constructing back and sides because it delivers surprising energy and extraordinary tonal balance in addition to its highly varied color patterns that are accentuated by the UV thin Natural Shadow Burst finish.
To further boost its high-energy sound, Breedlove chose a hard rock maple neck, denser than mahogany, and an African ebony fretboard and bridge. The FSC Certified European spruce top is torrefied, which results in a more mature sound and tone and a top that’s less susceptible to movement with humidification changes. The highly versatile Concert body shape is well-suited for strumming and heavy play, and also shines as a fingerstyle guitar. Responsive to a light touch and strumming, Breedlove’s versatile acoustic-electric has outstanding nuance and note-to-note clarity. The Artista Concert Natural Shadow CE’s cutaway design gives access to all 20 frets. Additionally, Breedlove’s Natural Sound Electronics sound better, are more reliable and put controls right where players need them—in the sound hole for quick on-the-strum access.
