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 care.
The Farm recently visited the Breedlove factory in Bend, Oregon and got a first-hand look at their meticulous build process. We hand-picked an array of amazing instruments, and some are prototypes and one-of-a-kind. We are offering these as Demo instruments since they were on display at Breedlove, but they have never been owned and are all in excellent condition.
Sound frequencies travel most efficiently through lighter materials. With this in mind, Breedlove designers sought a solution for the USA Concert Cinnamon Burst E that would reduce weight and bring the acoustic guitar to life in a player’s hands. Through this search, they achieved the thinnest finish to-date on a Breedlove – a mere 5 mils on top and 2 mils for the back and sides. With Sound Optimization, the Sitka top is thinner, the Mah back a bit thicker and the sound hole smaller to hit their target fundamental resonance frequency for textured big sound. This is a very versatile instrument.
The USA Concert E features a solid Sitka Spruce top in Cinnamon Burst satin finish and solid Honduran Mah back and sides in satin open pore finish, while the Honduran Mah neck features a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. Unlike traditional dovetail neck joints that require major surgery for a neck re-set, it is easy to adjust the play action and neck angle with the Breedlove bolt-on neck and single-action truss rod. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss 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.
This USA Concert E features an asymmetrical headstock. This headstock isn’t just a pretty shape – it’s specifically designed to keep the strings in a straight, even line from the nut to the tuning pegs. The result is even tension, stable tuning, and ease of alternate tuning.
Additional appointments include a African Ebony fretboard with 20 frets and offset dots, African Ebony bridge, Breedlove nickel tuners, and LR Baggs EAS VC electronics.
