Breedlove PFCO04CETEAM Performer Concerto Bourbon CE Torrefied European-African Mahogany

Breedlove’s largest body style delivers all it promises. In a high gloss Performer configuration—with eye-catching Bourbon stain—it will solidly back the largest ensemble or provide classic support for a solo singer/songwriter. Like a dreadnought, the Performer Concerto Bourbon CE has a slightly scooped EQ, creating a comfortable valley for your voice, and providing an incisive tone for your solos. A pinless African ebony bridge leaves room for damping and makes for lightning fast string changes, while Natural Sound electronics translate that great torrefied tone to practice amp or PA. Whether you are on stage in front of thousands or just in front of your mirror, the Performer Concerto Bourbon CE will take you there.

Sustainable & Clear Cut Free

Made from sustainably-sourced exotic and native tonewoods. No clear-cut trees are used in these instruments. Breedlove uses salvaged and individually harvested timber and has deep relationships with responsible suppliers around the globe. As we move towards sustainability across all lines, owner Tom Bedell has visited 15 countries to discover exactly where the wood comes from, how it is selected and harvested, and how this affects the wildlife, the community, the forest and the planet.

African Mahogany

Sometimes called khaya, African mahogany has a familiar crisp, clean and warm voice and boasts an impressive versatility, taking well to fingerpicking as well as to a more robust strumming attack without losing clarity. All mahogany instruments—like the Organic Collection Wildwood Series (which features sustainably harvested wood source from the Republic of Congo) offer a natural compression that delights blues players, folkies and singer/songwriters.

Concerto Body Shape

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.

Real Solid Tonewoods For Superior Sound

No Richlite or resin impregnated softwoods, no glue-heavy plywoods: just solid real tonewoods for real tone.

Natural Sound Electronics

New Breedlove Natural-Sound electronics with volume and tone controls, and easy battery replacement uses 2 x AAA batteries.

Torrefied European Spruce

As a guitar top, European spruce is powerful like Adirondack, clear like Sitka, and complex and responsive like Engelmann, all of which are employed in various Breedlove guitar lines. Torrefied European spruce graces the Artista, Performer and Signature Series in Breedlove’s new Organic Collection of sustainably sourced, all solid wood guitars at revolutionary prices. Torrefaction, a thermal process that artificially ages the wood while also turning it more resilient, makes these instruments explode with vintage tone, singing like an old friend that’s been played by a master for 30 years. With the Organic Collection three years in the making, Breedlove owner Tom Bedell literally climbed a mountain to be positive that the exotic FSC-certified tonewoods used in the assortment are harvested in responsible ways that respect the earth, while providing for superior tone that will last a lifetime. High in the windblown Swiss Alps, Bedell watched as European spruce trees were individually selected—each yielding many dozens of top sets—with an eye towards keeping the old growth stands robust for decades to come.
