Breedlove Organic Signature Concert Copper E Acoustic
SIGNATURE CONCERT COPPER E
A non-cutaway model, the Signature Concert Copper E has all the classic lines of a vintage acoustic guitar, with a modern secret weapon. The torrefaction process, with the European spruce top essentially roasted at the mill, makes it sound vintage, too.
The Concert, Breedlove’s most popular body shape—designed 30 years ago and still going strong—is favoured by discerning players for its versatile, balanced, articulate sound and its easy playing ergonomic comfort. This flagship platform performs equally well strummed or fingerpicked, and is perfectly poised for accompanying the human voice.
There’s a sonic wow factor at work in the Signature Concert Copper E that can’t be matched. The versatility and adaptability of the renowned Breedlove concert shape, developed 30 years ago and trusted ever since, is on full display, under a thin, shimmering Copper Burst semi-gloss finish no less.
With no clear-cut woods, the Signature Concert Copper E harks back to the Golden Age of the acoustic guitar, while heralding a new one.

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.
