Any guitarist will love the Breedlove 2018 Solo Concert Nylon CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar. Enjoy rich Western Red Cedar and Layered Ovangkol tonewood sounds well amplified by the LR Baggs EAS VTC Pickup System; excellent for performances and recording.

It can be challenging to hear the soft-spoken sound of nylon stringed guitars. The Solo Side Monitor Soundhole brings the warm red cedar sound right to your ear. With a neck width of 1 7/8th inch, the Solo Nylon is a more comfortable crossover instrument to play, than a traditional classical guitar.

Body Shape
The Breedlove Concert is the original Breedlove shape. It first appeared in 1992, and has been the best-selling Breedlove body shape ever since. Designed specifically for the fingerstylist to be well balanced, compact, and comfortable to play, it generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The unique construction also allows the Concert to sing even at a full strum. If you're a fingerstylist, or are seeking an instrument to use as vocal accompaniment, this is the shape for you. The Concert is engineered to provide exceptional sustain with a pronounced bass response, both of which can be achieved with a light touch. The graduated top works in harmony with the Breedlove Bridge Truss to provide an even response throughout the lows, mids, and highs, with sustain, and clear, concise, note-for-note projection.

Top Wood
For musicians who play a variety of instruments, or are looking for a very specific tone offered by cedar, guitars made with this tonewood can offer a nice alternative to the spruces and other top tonewoods. Western Red Cedar produces wonderful tones with a light touch, therefore it's great for fingerstyle playing. If you are a fingerstyle player, then you will love the way this guitar amplifies the sound and tone. This tonewood usually has a reddish and/or brown color, which makes the guitars very attractive. Its color can range from very dark to much lighter in tone, so you have a wide variety of aesthetic options to choose from. This tonewood has a smooth textured surface that looks even more lustrous after finishing.

Back and Side Wood
Ovangkol is a plentiful evergreen that grows in Western Africa. It achieves a height of 100 - 150 feet and a base diameter around three feet, with long fruit pods for seeds. Its scientific name is Guiborourtia ehie, in the same family as bubinga. It is a beautiful tonewood, often with interwoven colorful grain patters. Interestingly, its musical characteristics are almost identical to East Indian rosewood. Specific Gravity: 0.82 ovangkol, 0.83 East Indian rosewood; pounds per cubic feet: 52 ovangkol, 51 East Indian rosewood. Like rosewood, ovangkol efficiently projects bass tones resulting in a rich full sound.

Breedlove Pinless Bridge
The Breedlove Pinless Bridge helps maintain the integrity of the top by eliminating the need for six drilled string holes. The fewer holes in your soundboard, the more evenly the sound wave can move across the interior, without any loss of energy. The Breedlove Pinless Bridge also provides a gentler string-break angle from the bridge to the top of the saddle, reducing saddle strain. This innovative bridge also makes string changes a breeze, especially on 12 strings. Plus, you'll never again have to worry about lost, worn-out, or broken bridge pins.

Breedlove Neck
Breedlove guitars feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish also contributes to ideal playability. The labor-intensive finish process includes precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.
