The guitar pictured is the actual guitar you will receive!At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.
This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your guitar was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without the care that it, and you, deserve.The Concertina, new for 2018, is Breedlove’s small body guitar, delivering a surprisingly clear, crisp, loud sound. Its 12 frets to the body design make it a joy to play. Extensive Sound Optimization engineering has resulted in a body shape that has a bigger sound and is more comfortable to play than a traditional parlor. At Breedlove, they design and craft the finest sounding, most comfortable playing, hand-crafted guitars. Instead of adopting traditional body shapes and following the status quo, they blaze their our own trails. Breedlove unveiled the new Concertina body shape at the 2018 NAMM show the opening morning, surrounded by guitar enthusiasts, players, dealers, media and other attendees.
Handcrafted in the USA by Breedlove's finest Master Craftsmen, this Breedlove Masterclass Concertina is a one-of-a-kind guitar. It takes master craftsmen and master grade woods to handcraft a Breedlove Masterclass guitar. Judged by its design, its sound, its beauty, and its playability – Masterclass is artistry and this Masterclass Concertina sets the bar.The Breedlove Bridge Truss is used to lessen the tension on the Red Cedar top allowing for more sustain and overtone embellishment in ideal harmony with the Rosewood back and sides. The body of this Masterclass guitar is finished in natural gloss and features black/white/black/white/black binding on the top, black/white/black back and side binding, and an Abalone soundhole rosette.
The Mahogany neck features a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. The hand-rubbed, satin Breedlove neck finish contributes to ideal playability – the finish process alone takes three days, including precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing. The Ebony fretboard features 18 frets and Linear Fusion Abalone inlays.Additional features include a Delta style Ebony bridge, black/white/black fretboard binding, slotted headstock with Pearl Breedlove logo inlay and chrome open gear tuners with black buttons. This guitar comes with a deluxe hardshell case with black plush interior, a padded handle, red stitching and gold hardware. This Masterclass Concertina was the display at the Winter NAMM show in Anaheim.
