The Oregon Concert CE Sitka Spruce – Myrtlewood is a versatile play style acoustic-electric guitar that has become an instant favorite with players around the world. The Breedlove sound comes through bold and clean with balanced bass, mids and highs reminiscent of rosewood. Engineered to perfection, this guitar is equally suited as a strumming and rhythm guitar or as a nuanced fingerstyle masterpiece. A soft cutaway provides access to the entire ebony fretboard. The maple neck complements the sustainably harvested Sitka spruce and myrtlewood in tonal perfection. Our Sitka spruce and myrtlewood are locally sourced in the Pacific Northwest – a short distance from where they are hand-crafted in small batches by our dedicated craftsmen. A soft cutaway allows for easy access to the entire ebony fretboard. The guitar’s sound stays true when amplified through the highly reliable LR Baggs EAS VTC electronics. You will sound better, play better and play more on a Breedlove Oregon Series guitar.
Sustainable & Clear-Cut Free
Breedlove uses no clear-cut woods in its Made in Bend models. It’s that’s simple. Featuring sustainably sourced all solid exotic and native tonewoods handcrafted by skilled luthiers who are as sensitive to the needs of the earth as they are to building the best sounding and playing guitars available anywhere.
Myrtlewood Back & Sides
Popularized by Breedlove, myrtlewood, from the windblown Oregon coast, combines the best elements of rosewood, mahogany and maple—rich bass, warm midrange and clear, bright trebles—for truly versatile guitars. Each sonically distinct instrument is individualized by the gnarled, wildly varied, but always arresting grain patterns.
Sitka Spruce Top
The world’s most popular topwood, for a reason. Sitka has an ideal strength-to-weight ratio, yielding a strong fundamental, high velocity of sound and a pleasing elasticity. Translation? Sitka sounds great for heavy strumming, light fingerpicking and everything in between.
