Unleash Your Inner Artist with the Breedlove Artista Concerto Natural Shadow CE Acoustic Guitar

The classic dreadnought combination is spruce over rosewood, a pairing famed for its deep bass, scooped mids and bright trebles. The Artista Concerto Natural Shadow CE bends tradition, making for an even more distinctive large format guitar. Its Oregon myrtlewood back and sides boast that familiar rosewood thrum, as well as its blossom of overtones, but tempers it with a warmer middle and airy, strong trebles that balance every chord. This is what your guitar can be! Decorated, yet understated, with all Artista appointments, and the hypnotic swirl of solid native myrtle, the instrument stands out as the apex of the Organic Collection.

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.

Play Style: Versatile

The Breedlove Play Style system was created to help you, the player, select your sound and playing style. Finding the most appropriate guitar to fit your sound requires finding not only the correct body shape, but the proper tonewood combinations to fit your style of play. Each Breedlove guitar is designed for a specific play style and sound, the Play Style systems assign a playing style icon to each instrument.

V | Versatile Play, Multiple Styles: Breedlove crafts most guitars with a versatile "all-purpose" sound and feel - well balanced between strumming and fingerstyle play.
