The Breedlove Oregon Concert CE is here presented in a limited edition Blackberry finish with solid Myrtlewood top, back and sides. This highly limited guitar is completely unique, with a subtle purple burst which has the benefit of allowing those stunning Myrtlewood tonewoods to show through. If you’re looking for a high end acoustic guitar which plays beautifully and looks like no other, this is the one for you!
The Concert body – Breedlove’s original body style – is perfect for fingerstyle guitarists, and has really stood the test of time, remaining the company’s most popular model. Constructed in Oregon, USA, using Breedlove’s local Oregon tonewood, Myrtlewood, it sounds amazing – resonant and overtone rich. The body is here fitted with the superlative LR Baggs Anthem system, which combines an under-saddle pickup with the patented Baggs TRU MIC, resulting in the most natural amplified sound available. Supplied with a deluxe Breedlove hard case.

BREEDLOVE OREGON CONCERT CE MYRTLEWOOD BLACKBERRY LIMITED EDITION
The Breedlove Concert is the original Breedlove shape. It first appeared in 1992, and has been the best-selling Breedlove body shape ever since. Designed specifically for the fingerstylist to be well balanced, compact, and comfortable to play, it generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The unique construction also allows the Concert to sing even at a full strum. If you’re a fingerstylist, or are seeking an instrument to use as vocal accompaniment, this is the shape for you. The Concert is engineered to provide exceptional sustain with a pronounced bass response, both of which can be achieved with a light touch.
BACK, SIDES AND TOP WOOD
Myrtlewood, umbellularia californica, formerly oreodaphne californica, originates in the western United States in Northern California and Oregon. Breedlove’s local tonewood, 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 favourite for many styles of playing. Myrtle has very unique and widely varied figure – no two sets are alike. Coloration ranges from blonde to taupe.
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, including precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.
The asymmetrical headstock is featured on CM, Concert, Auditorium, and 12-String body shapes. This headstock isn’t just a pretty shape – it’s specifically designed to keep the strings in a straight, even line from the nut to the tuning pegs. The result is even tension, stable tuning, and ease of alternate tuning.
