Breedlove Organic Artista Concertina Natural Shadow CE Acoustic
ARTISTA CONCERTINA CE
Breedlove’s distinctive small body guitar delivers a surprisingly clear, crisp sound, and its short scale 12-fret design makes it a joy to play. Extensive Custom Shop engineering and experimentation has resulted in a modern shape that has a bigger sound and a more comfortable profile than a traditional parlour model.
A guitar for connoisseurs, yet astonishingly affordable. While the Artista series sits at the top of the Organic Collection line, it still lies within reach, and how.
A short scale Hard Rock maple neck, joining the Oregon myrtlewood body at the twelth fret, puts a combination of easy playability, expressive tone and visual beauty right into your hands.
Small body guitars are treasured by serious players, and an Artista Concertina Natural Shadow CE—with an arresting high gloss Natural Shadow finish on a torrefied European spruce top—is an investment in joy. The Breedlove difference at its finest!
Expand your expression, aided by the easy play and singing tone of a short scale neck that joins the body at the twelfth fret. Get all-solid-wood tone in an intimate design that lets you play better, sound better and play more.

ORGANIC ARTISTA SERIES:
The Breedlove Organic Artista Series takes luxury to a new level, with gold frets and tuners, brass inlays and an African ebony fingerboard capping a Hard Rock maple neck. The latter, denser than mahogany, couples with Breedlove’s favorite tone platform, Oregon myrtlewood, to create an instrument as sonically powerful as it is visually beautiful—with a thin Natural Shadow Burst finish and dark walnut binding setting off each unique, varied and colorful back and side. Torrified European spruce tops with African ebony bridges work with myrtle’s magic fusion of rosewood thump, mahogany warmth and maple brilliance to deliver a balanced, high energy, ultra-responsive playing experience. When you’re ready, Artista is here.
Great sound. No clear-cut woods.
The result of a pioneering three-year journey, The Organic Collection from Breedlove offers four impressive series of sustainably sourced, all solid wood acoustic/electric guitars at revolutionary prices.
Featuring torrefied European spruce tops for “aged” tone and durability, and Breedlove Natural Sound Electronics with sound hole controls.
“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—and African mahogany and ebony. 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.
Every entry in The Organic Collection features exacting top and back graduations informed by Breedlove’s careful research; a thin UV finish; Natural Sound electronics with soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls; easy-to-maintain pinless bridges; and classic Breedlove playability.
Torrefaction makes the thermally “aged” spruce tops sing as though they’ve been played for thirty years and proves more resistant to changes in temperature and humidity.
The Organic Collection from Breedlove—it’s the natural path to uninhibited solid sound.
We like to keep things simple, so Faders Music Inc. offers Free Canada-Wide Shipping for almost all orders over $99.99 (before tax).
Local customers may choose to pickup their order at the store free of charge during the checkout process (click & collect). Free local delivery to Brandon, MB addresses is also available for orders over $25.
Here's the thing... some larger/heavier items may be subject to shipping charges. Canada is a big place and shipping companies calculate their rates using "dimensional weight" meaning larger items are very expensive to ship - even if they don't weigh very much (i.e. an empty guitar case).
We want to be completely transparent with our shipping policy, so here is a list of items that we have to charge some shipping on. (these fees usually work out to about 25%-50% of what we actually pay).
Faders Subsidized Flat Shipping Rates (within Canada)
- Casio 61-76 Note Keyboards : $30 + tax
- 88 Note Pianos : $70 + tax
- Electronic Drumsets : $40 + tax
- Empty Guitar Case (hardshell) : $30 + tax
- Guitars < $350 Value : $30 + tax
- Amps 25+ watt : $40 + tax
- Guitar & Bass Bundles : $40 + tax
If you make a purchase from one of the listed categories and choose Free Canada-Wide Shipping, we will email you a secure link to pay the shipping charge after you've made your purchase. It's super fast and super easy.
Note: Some remote or rural locations may be subject to additional shipping charges. For example, if your delivery address is a PO Box and you order a large or heavy item then we will email you a secure payment link with a subsidized flat rate shipping charge determined by the item(s) ordered and your delivery address.
A brief note about shipping & delivery estimates:
