This stunning Custom Shop Breedlove Concert was built to our specs, with Exotic Cocobolo Back and Sides, and Sinker Redwood Top.
About the Concert Body Shape: The Concert is Breedlove's most popular body shape, favored by players because it is well-balanced, compact, comfortable to play, and offers all the qualities of a great sounding guitar. It generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The Concert works well when played fingerstyle, as vocal accompaniment, or at a full strum.
About Redwood: Redwood is a dark, beautiful top wood favored by fingerstyle players who appreciate clear upper harmonic content. Sinker redwood is a special type of redwood that comes from logs that were submerged in oxygen-free environments in the bottom of lakes or ocean waters, yielding darker, more striped, and often stiffer and lighter wood. Bold, punchy, crisp tones, with rich, strong overtones. Like a cross between spruce and cedar. Coloration can range from a light pinkish brown to a deep reddish brown.
About Cocobolo: Cocobolo grows from southwestern Mexico through western Central America – one of the world’s most colorful woods. Reaching as much as 80 feet in height and three feet in diameter it is known for its dynamic grain patterns of browns, oranges and yellows. Cocobolo is part of the same Dalbergia family as Brazilian and other rosewoods, however it is unique in its brown/orange/yellow color and is the densest of the Dalbergia woods. In fact, cocobolo has a specific gravity of 1.1 which means it sinks in water, compared with Brazilian rosewood with a specific gravity of 0.84. Likewise, the pounds per cubic feet or cocobolo is 69 compared to 52 for Brazilian rosewood.
