The Artista Concert represents the pinnacle of Breedlove's Organic Collection. This 6-string acoustic-electric guitar can only be found at Sweetwater and is adorned with notable upgrades from its 100% sustainable brethren. First and foremost, the Artista's tonewood pairing of solid myrtlewood with European spruce gives it a spirited and dynamic tone that showcases characteristics of mahogany, rosewood, and maple. The Hard Rock Maple neck is topped with a premium ebony fingerboard, gold frets, and stylish brass dot inlays. The guitar is equipped with Breedlove Natural Sound electronics, which give you an excellent plugged-in tone. Like all of the Organic Series guitars, the Breedlove Organic Artista is made with sustainably harvested, non-clear-cut, all-solid tonewoods. This ensures that you and other musicians will enjoy the sound of myrtlewood for decades — and even centuries — to come. If you've been dreaming of a solid tonewood guitar, but don't want to harm the environment, Sweetwater recommends the Breedlove Organic Artista Concert.

This instrument is in excellent, near mint condition played for testing purposes only. The guitar has a couple of raised frets with a bit of zing or mild buzz in the upper fret area and may need to be leveled a bit if playing style requires it to be setup with super low action. Otherwise, it has little to no play wear. It looks, plays and sounds great! The actual item for sale is shown in the photographs.
