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 Sun Light 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. To achieve the results, Breedlove conducted extensive Sound Profiling - frequency testing the top and back. As a result, the top is thinner, the back a bit thicker and the sound hole smaller to hit their target fundamental resonance frequency for textured big sound. They also wanted the sound of the Sun Light acoustic guitar to speak for itself, so binding and decoration has been minimized. Coming in at just 3 lbs 12 oz, the Breedlove USA Concert is almost 25% lighter than the Breedlove Premier Concert.
The USA Concert E Sun Light features a rich Alaska Sitka Spruce top, made from wood salvaged from downed trees in the Tongass National Forest. The Honduran Mah used for the back, sides and neck are selectively harvested in the Custosel Concession in the Mayan Biosphere of Guatemala.The comfort and simple beauty of the Breedlove USA Concert E Sun Light acoustic guitar delivers complex notes that are beautiful to the ear with the robust big instrument sound of much larger guitar designs.
This USA Concert E Sun Light's 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 acoustic electric guitar 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 apointments include a African Ebony fretboard with 20 frets and offset dots, Ebony bridge, Breedlove nickel tuners, natural satin finish, and LR Baggs EAS VC electronics.
