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.
Breedlove's new Organic Collection is the result of a three-year journey to produce sustainably-sourced, all-solid-wood acoustic electric guitars at revolutionary prices.
The Farm was at the headquarters in Oregon this past summer when Breedlove revealed the Organic Collection and we have been anxiously awaiting the release. This new series sets a new standard for guitar design, sound and accessibility. Breedlove has always been a pioneer in minimizing the environmental impact in order to craft their guitars, and this new series is a further testament to that effort. 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. 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.
Everything you want from the Organic Performer Series in a small, strong package. With 12 frets to the body, the Performer Concertina Bourbon CE offers you unique tone, with the bridge sitting right on the torrefied European Spruce top’s sweet spot. A short scale and soft cutaway open up every fret, whether bending the blues, shaking a wicked vibrato or simply singing your favorite song from Spotify. Working musicians love the Performer’s killer combination of “aged” tone, smart looks and Natural Sound electronics, and so will you.
The Performer Concertina Bourbon CE offers the world’s highest-value, superior-sounding acoustic electric guitars at astoundingly affordable prices. The all-solid torrefied European Spruce top sounds vintage right out of the box, while the all-solid African Mah back and sides add warmth and projection. Torrefaction makes the thermally “aged” Spruce top sing as though its been played for thirty years and proves more resistant to changes in temperature and humidity.
The percentage of new players that stick with guitar past the first year is actually pretty slim. With this Performer Concertina Bourbon CE, Breedlove set out to change that equation. Offered at a remarkable price, this instrument puts the magic of superior all-solid-wood sound into the hands of guitarists of any level.
"We're making tomorrow's guitars today," beams Tom Bedell, whose whole earth philosophy and passion for high quality sound is the driving force behind The Organic Collection, designed in Bend, Oregon, and featuring individually-harvested FSC-certified exotic tonewoods like European spruce—torrefied at the source in the Swiss Alps. Native Oregon myrtlewood is carefully salvaged and culled from the Pacific coast. No synthetic materials are used, and half the glue of traditional laminates means a lighter, more responsive instrument with dynamic range, tone and sustain rivaling other builder’s high end models.
