Instrument Categories: , ,

Built as number 21 of 50, this exceptional Breedlove Journey Concert steel string guitar pairs a Sitka Spruce top with fully documented Brazilian Rosewood for the sides and back.

Some years ago, Breedlove found and purchased a relatively large stock of fully documented and hence ‘legal’ Brazilian Rosewood from a vendor in Spain. For 2016, it was decided to make two limited edition models, in a run of 50 guitars each, using some of this material and these were sold with the required CITES documentation. The two models were the Breedlove Journey Concert and the Breedlove Journey FS.

Here we’re looking at one of the Breedlove Journey Concert guitars, this one being number 21 of the 50. It is in very good, clean and original condition, with only the lightest wear. This guitar is built with a Sitka Spruce top, the Brazilian Rosewood set for the sides, back and headplate, Mahogany for the neck and Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. An L R Baggs Anthem pickup and preamp set are factory installed to and end-pin jack.

More From The Builder On The Breedlove Journey Concert:

” Over 50 years ago a few Brazilian rosewood logs were shipped from NE Brazil to a village just outside of Madrid, Spain. It was stored in an open air warehouse for a couple decades and then sawn into tonewood sets, stickered and left to season for decades more. Brazilian rosewood has long been regarded as the pinnacle of all tone woods for its amazing ability to resonate deep, rich, powerful bass notes while still shimmering with the treble tones. And the half century natural aging of this Brazilian collection has given Breedlove the finest tonewood ever. All legally documented.

[…]

The Breedlove Journey Concert delivers powerful, robust sound. It takes full advantage of Brazilian rosewood’s character of delivering highly present bass tones much as a woofer does for a sound system. There is little subtly with this instrument, the more a musician dives into the Breedlove Journey, the more it will respond. The salvaged Sitka spruce top is paired perfectly to allow for tonal balance and, most importantly, tonal range. The Breedlove Journey truly comes alive the second it is played.

This wonderful guitar is sold with its original hard shell case.
