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.
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. They have made available the types of wood used as well as the country where the tree grew. They also use no clear-cut wood - rather they either salvage dead trees or individually harvest them to minimize the impact on the forest.
The Organic Collection features exacting top and back graduations informed by Breedlove’s Sound Optimization research; a thin UV finish; Natural Sound electronics with soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls; easy-to-maintain pinless bridges; and classic Breedlove playability.
The Breedlove Organic Wildwood Series is sustainably sourced with FSC-certified African Mah from the Congo River Basin, the world’s second largest rainforest. Curiously, it provides the classic sound of Americana, with all-Mah guitars known for warm midrange tones that perfectly support a voice. Favored by folkies, roots rockers and songwriters, Mah instruments are versatile, with a bold timbre, a crisp attack and strong string-to-string definition. As exotic tonewoods go, solid African Mahogany is one of the greats. Visually, its straight grain is clean, alluring and warm. Its sound is the same, especially in a single species guitar like the Wildwood Concert Satin Whiskey Burst CE.
The Breedlove Organic Wildwood Series offers the world’s highest-value, superior-sounding acoustic electric guitars at astoundingly affordable prices. This guitar’s 16” solid African Mah top and solid African Mah back and sides ring, with excellent note separation and a strong midrange presence, and the Whiskey Burst finish provides beauty and protection. The Wildwood Concert Satin Whiskey Burst CE - featuring a soft cutaway - sounds great strummed or picked, and, accented by binding, has a simple, straight-grained look as rich as its tone.
The percentage of new players that stick with guitar past the first year is actually pretty slim. With this Wildwood Concert Satin Whiskey Burst 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.
This guitar came from Breedlove as a slight flaw, which means slight cosmetic flaw or an overstock item. We have inspected this guitar and there is a flaw in the binding. We have taken detailed photos, please take a moment to look through them before purchasing.
