Jeff Bridges is committed to preserving our planet and to encouraging consumers to make the right choices about the products they use. The Academy Award®-winning actor, musician and environmentalist has joined Breedlove in designing a series of signature guitars that affirm we can have the very best while also honoring our trees and protecting the habitats and sustaining the local communities they serve.
Emblazoned with Bridges’ “All in the Together” motto along the fretboard, and his signature inlaid along the back of the Wave headstock, the Jeff Bridges Amazon Concert Sunburst CE Torrefied European-Granadillo is proof that sustainability sounds great, for both the soul and the ear.
CONCERT BODY SHAPE
The Concert, Breedlove’s most popular body shape—designed 30 years ago and still going strong—is favored by discerning players for its versatile, balanced, articulate sound and its easy playing ergonomic comfort. This flagship platform performs equally well strummed or fingerpicked and is perfectly poised for accompanying the human voice.
CLEAR-CUT FREE & SUSTAINABLE
No clear-cut woods are used in the Designed in Bend Organic Collections from Breedlove. Owner Tom Bedell has traveled to the world’s key rainforests to personally ensure the responsible harvest practices that result in these forward-looking, light, resonant guitars—instruments you can feel good about playing, that will remind you with every strum that we truly are “All in this Together.”
GRANADILLO BACK & SIDES
Granadillo, hailed as “La Madera Que Canta,” or ‘the wood that sings, comes from the mighty Amazon jungle. It is sourced in Suriname, which has some of the world’s most stringent preservation-minded regulations on the harvesting of natural materials. With beautiful blonde sapwood accenting its haunting reddish grain and Cocobolo-like sonic richness, this is “the guitar that sings!”
TORREFIED EUROPEAN SPRUCE
A torrefied European spruce top brings an ‘aged’ sound found only in guitars decades old, and a contemporary soft cutaway makes for a supremely playable, nimble and versatile all solid wood global guitar at a revolutionary price.
SUPPORTING THE AMAZON CONSERVATION TEAM
Royalties support the Amazon Conservation Team, which works in partnership with indigenous colleagues to protect rainforests and traditional culture.
We are pleased to present these very detailed specifications for your 2020 Breedlove acoustic guitar, which was designed in Bend, Oregon and crafted in China. In addition to dimensions, we have listed every piece of wood in this model: its common name, scientific name, and country where the tree grew. We use no clear-cut wood. We either salvage dead trees or individually harvest to minimize the impact on the forest. You can travel globally with your Breedlove worry free. No permits are needed. That said, it might be helpful to have this information on hand if you are traveling internationally. We suggest printing out this information and carrying it with your guitar to avoid any misunderstanding or time-consuming waits with border customs officials.
