Breedlove Organic Collection Artista Concerto Cutaway CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar
Solid Oregon myrtlewood and a torrefied European spruce top distinguishe the beautiful look, comfortable feel and incredible sound of the Breedlove Artista Concerto acoustic-electric. This Breedlove Organic Collection model places a luxury instrument in your lap at what we here at Musician's Friend would say is an astoundingly affordable price. If you're an acoustic player, it's likely that a classic dreadnought, big, rich and robust, will come to mind when you think of a guitar. The Artista Concerto Natural Shadow CE refines that image—visually and sonically. It's a player's dream, but a beauty as well, with its gold and brass appointments contrasting the thin gloss Natural Shadow finish.
