Breedlove Jeff Bridges Oregon Concerto CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar – Bourbon Myrtlewood
6-string Acoustic-electric Signature Guitar with Myrtlewood Top, Back, and Sides, Maple Neck, and Ebony Fingerboard – Bourbon
An Iconic Guitar Fit for an Iconic Performer
It’s no secret that Jeff Bridges is one charismatic and talented performer. Whether he’s on the silver screen, in the voice-over booth, or onstage playing sold-out arenas, his work has garnered him worldwide fame, awards, and critical acclaim. With the Breedlove Jeff Bridges Oregon Concerto CE, now you can own a piece of his impressive legacy. Of course, no guitar bearing Jeff’s name would include any tonewoods that come from clear-cut forests. Co-designed by Bridges, Chris Pelonis, and Breedlove, each component of the guitar was sustainably procured through individual harvesting or salvaging windthrown logs. The figured myrtlewood top, back, and sides deliver a rich blend of rosewood, mahogany, and maple when strummed. The hard rock maple neck and ebony fingerboard are adorned with Jeff’s signature “All in this Together” inlay, with his last name featured on the back of the headstock. The onboard LR Baggs Anthem electronics are the same that Jeff uses onstage, giving you a clean and clear sonic response. Finally, every Jeff Bridges Oregon Concerto CE includes a hand-signed certificate of authenticity and ships in a Deluxe Jeff Bridges signature soft case.
A guitar for the greater good
Aside from his successful acting and music careers, Jeff Bridges uses his platform to campaign for the greater good. He’s campaigned tirelessly for the hungry, the oppressed, and the forgotten. In recent years, he has turned his attention to the plight of the world’s forests. Through his partnership with Breedlove, Jeff’s vision for preserving our forests has come to fruition in the form of the “All in this Together” project. Each guitar sold under this banner benefits the Amazon Conservation Team, which works with the Amazon’s leaders and indigenous peoples to protect the rainforest and the myriad cultures found within.
Myrtlewood: Breedlove’s signature tonewood
Like his life onscreen, Jeff wears many musical hats, so he needs an instrument that can keep up. That’s why he and Breedlove settled on using highly figured myrtlewood for the body of this guitar. You may not be familiar with myrtlewood yet, but rest assured that it will win you over before you can say Bad Blake. Native to the coasts along the Pacific Northwest, myrtlewood (Umbellularia Californica) combines tonal elements rarely seen among American hardwoods. It blends the warmth of rosewood, the lively midrange of mahogany, and the bright treble response of maple into a single tonewood! Depending on your playing style, you’ll bring out different elements for a sound that’s all your own. And due to the constantly shifting winds where the trees grow, each set of myrtlewood showcases a unique grain pattern, making every myrtlewood guitar a one-of-a-kind creation. When you open the case for the first time, you’ll get a Guitar Portrait that calls out your guitar’s specifics, from its weight and thickness to where the tonewoods were sourced.
Hand-voiced for uncompromising performance
Ask any guitar player what sets one guitar apart from the other, and they’ll probably say one word: performance. With Breedlove, you’ll experience a level of performance and sonic consistency that are hard to find anywhere else. How do they accomplish such a feat? By employing their state-of-the-art Sound Optimization process and hand-voicing for each guitar they build in Bend, Oregon. It all begins with sanding each tonewood until it reaches a weight that brings out the best possible sound (most builders sand to a uniform thickness). After the braces are attached, highly skilled luthiers use soft felt mallets, microphones, and specialized computer software to analyze the frequency response of the top and back. From here, the same luthier voices the bracing by hand, targeting specific frequencies along the way.
By combining technological innovation with the art and craft of lutherie, Breedlove ensures that each one of their instruments performs at its full potential. They fully believe in their Sound Optimization process. In fact, no instrument will leave their factory until it reaches its peak performance, even if that means they carve on the bracing through the soundhole. And for you, the player, it means that your Breedlove will come alive in your hands the second you play your first note. From the quietest fingerpicking to the loudest flatpicking, you get access to an incredible dynamic range — all without losing definition and note separation. Strum your final chord, and the guitar will reward you with long, rich sustain. If you’re not entirely sold yet, you will be when you pick it up.
The Breedlove Tonewood Certification Program
Part of being a responsible company is knowing where your stock comes from and documenting it properly. That’s why Breedlove has created their revolutionary Tonewood Certification Program. Through extensive documentation and cooperation with local authorities and mill workers, Breedlove can tell you exactly where the wood on your guitar grew and how it was harvested. That’s just another way Breedlove shows their eco-conscious commitment.
Breedlove: guitars you can feel good about
From the company’s beginning in 1990, Breedlove has focused a lot of their efforts on reducing their impact on the planet without compromising the quality of their instruments. Their radical approach to sustainability led them to create their Tonewood Certification Program and commit to visit each location where their timber is harvested to ensure that their sustainability standards are met. The company has introduced player-centered innovations, including top-loading bridges, custom voicings, and unique neck profiles. From the Discovery to the Legacy, each and every Breedlove is made with an uncompromising dedication to quality sound, flawless workmanship, and environmental sustainability. Buying a Breedlove is much more than purchasing a top-notch acoustic guitar — it’s buying a guitar that you can feel good about.
