Breedlove Guitars Releases the Premier Concert LTD

Fingerstylists will appreciate the wider nut width and slim neck profile.

Bend, OR (June 23, 2015) -- Breedlove Stringed Instruments is pleased to announce the addition of the Premier Concert LTD to its USA-handcrafted Premier Series of acoustic instruments. Reliable, versatile and accessible, these road-ready guitars have earned a reputation among performing musicians as go-to instruments. Joining this heralded lineup is the Premier Concert LTD, which combines the comfort and playability of our Concert body shape with a Western red cedar top, known for its diverse harmonic abilities and articulation.

The Premier Concert LTD is truly a player’s instrument with a wider nut width and slim neck profile that’s a favorite among fingerstylists. Exemplifying the best qualities of Breedlove’s Distinctively Crafted Sound, solid Western red cedar was chosen for the top and solid East Indian rosewood for the back and sides—a tonewood combination that rewards a player’s touch with sweet, extended harmonic content and a robust bottom end. Professionals and enthusiasts alike will appreciate the delicate interaction it provides with your individual style of expression.

The Premier Series already offers two of the most revered solid tonewoods available as body woods—East Indian rosewood and Honduran mahogany—combined with a solid Sitka spruce top for a perennially classic tone. Available in Concert, Auditorium, Dreadnought, Parlor, Jumbo and a 12-string model—all boasting LR Baggs EAS VTC electronics—performing musicians have embraced the Premier Series as road-ready workhorses designed to perform flawlessly night after night and stand up to the rigors of the road. The Premier Concert Cedar LTD adds yet another tonal option for discerning players.

The Breedlove Premier Series is available now, including the Premier Concert LTD. All Premier Series models include a deluxe hardshell case and are handcrafted in Bend, Oregon, U.S.A.

The flask-sliding swashbuckler's turning point with guitar was hearing (and absorbing) the Delta bluesman's thumping, percussive rhythms.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
