Breedlove Frontier Concertina E (Parlour) Mint Condition



Out of stock - Unavailable to order


We're very pleased to have this lovely Breedlove Frontier Concertina E back in stock. This particular guitar was the first of Breedlove's new small-bodied Concertina models to land on UK shores, and it was immediately bought by one of our best long-term customers. We were incredibly impressed with its tone when it first came in, but it now sounds even better - testament to the quality of the Honduran mahogany tonewood used in its construction. It shows only slight signs of careful, home use.

Breedlove's take on the classic parlour guitar, the Frontier Concertina E features a slightly shorter scale length, 12th fret body join and all-mahogany construction, resulting in a lovely sweet and warm sound. Hand-made in the USA, the finish and overall quality of this guitar are really something to behold. The neck, in particular feels spectacular; no wonder, considering it took three days to finish!

Included in the price are high end discreet LR Baggs electronics and a deluxe hard case. Now available from Merchant City Music, online and in our Glasgow store, buy from us to experience our peerless customer service experience and speedy delivery to the UK and Europe. Every guitar we sell is fully checked over and set up before dispatch.

Breedlove Frontier Concertina E - Breedlove's Parlour with Stunning Mahogany Tone

New for 2018, the Concertina is Breedlove’s small body guitar, delivering a level of clarity and volume which belie its size. Its 12-frets to the body design make it a joy to play. Extensive Sound Optimisation engineering has resulted in a body shape that has a bigger sound and is more comfortable to play than a traditional parlour.

Genuine mahogany, swietenia macrophyllia, can be found from Mexico to southern Amazonia in Brazil. Mahogany is a medium-lightweight wood, ranging in colour from light brown to dark, and is primarily used for necks because of the feel and the stability it provides. It offers a balanced, resonant tone with notable sustain – a thick bottom end, rich midrange, and controlled, warm top end finish out the sound. The colouration is a reddish brown.

Breedlove guitar necks feature a slimmer neck profile which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. Unlike traditional dovetail neck joints that require major surgery for a neck re-set, it is easy to adjust the play action and neck angle with the Breedlove bolt-on neck and single-action truss rod. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish contributes to ideal playability – the finish process alone takes three days, including precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.
