Each Solo guitar features a Side Monitor Soundhole that practically places your ears in the crowd while you play, without reducing the forward sound projection of your song. The Solo takes away the annoyance of not being able to hear yourself play. For the tops, we went for a warm, substantial red cedar sound. African ovangkol and ebony have replaced the Indian rosewood that was formerly utilized. Ovangkol is a tropical West African hardwood with a specific gravity (density) close to that of Indian rosewood. African ebony is considerably better than rosewood for fretboards and bridges. The Solo Series features a wide range of instruments. Each of these instruments can create warm, blooming complex notes thanks to the Breedlove Bridge Truss and red cedar tops, making songwriting and performance easier. LR Bags EAS VTC electronics and a luxury thick cushioned Gig Bag come standard on every instrument. With the Side Monitor Soundhole, a Breedlove’s famous Solo Concert brings your music directly to your ear. The warmth of red cedar and the bass accent of ovangkol provide a balanced tone with warm note-for-note clarity. The Solo Concert allows you to be more connected to your music, whether you’re creating on a noisy tour bus or need to hear your performing on stage.
The Breedlove Solo Concert’s second soundhole, ultra-playable neck, superb electronics, outstanding tone, and overall feel of excellence will no doubt appeal to professional musicians and frequent gigging guitarists. As a consequence of this, as well as the fact that they manage to keep the price low, it’s become one of our favorites in the sub-$1000 category.
