SOLO CONCERT CE – Red Cedar - Ovangkol
The Solo Concert CE Red Cedar – Ovangkol is Breedlove’s top-selling Solo Series acoustic-electric guitar. With a versatile play style conducive to strumming and fingerstyle, it’s the perfect professional grade instrument for players looking for an all-in-one guitar that can stand out and carry the rhythm or be soft, sweet and nuanced when played fingerstyle. The Side Monitor Soundhole virtually puts you in the audience while you play, without diminishing the forward sound projection of your music. This feature is especially useful when playing with a group of musicians. The tone is warm and rich with a solid red cedar top and Ovangkol back and sides. It is easy and fun to play with a 1 11/16-inch radiused neck. It includes the reliable and great sounding LR Baggs EAS VTC electronics with volume and tone controls conveniently located in the soundhole. The cutaway body gives full access to the entire upgraded ebony fretboard. You will sound better, play better and play more on a Breedlove Solo Series acoustic-electric guitar.
Side Sound Hole
The unique Side Monitor Soundhole that virtually puts your ears in the audience while you play. Hearing every nuance of your instrument—whether you’re writing, rehearsing or performing—gives you a sonic perspective that will bring out the best in your playing.
THE CONCERT BODY SHAPE
The Concert is our 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.
BREEDLOVE PINLESS BRIDGE
Breedlove’s pinless Delta bridge is a distinctive element, alright, with a sleek, modern contour that adds an extra bit of unexpected beauty to every instrument, from Discovery to Legacy. But it also adds welcome functionality while anchoring great sound. Beginners love the fact that string changes are much easier without having to wrestle a traditional pin bridge. Pros love it for the same reason! No more looking for lost pins during a fast backstage string swap. And its low profile makes for perfect right hand damping.
RED CEDAR TOP
Softer than spruce, with a warmer cast to its look and its tone, western red cedar has less headroom for a heavy attack, but comes alive—with sweet harmonics and a wide tonal palette—for a lighter touch. Related to mahogany, it shares a focused sound, much loved by fingerstylists.
OVANGKOL BACK AND SIDES
From enormous West African trees, ovangkol echoes East Indian rosewood in many ways, while being more sustainable. It, too, has a compelling visual beauty, with natural black highlights streaking through complex, interwoven brown figures. And it sounds like it looks, sharing the wide tonal spectrum of rosewood, with its deep bass and articulate treble, but with added midrange fullness. A remarkable wood.
Breedlove guitars feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish also contributes to ideal playability. The labor-intensive finish process includes precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.
