As exotic tonewoods go, solid African mahogany is one of the greats. Visually, its straight grain is clean, alluring and warm. Its sound is the same, especially in a single species guitar like the Wildwood Concerto Satin CE. This guitar’s 16” mahogany top rings, with excellent note separation and a strong midrange presence. As an alternative to the ubiquity of spruce, all mahogany instruments provide a thrilling change of pace, especially for young artists looking to establish their own unique voice. You will find your own path to uninhibited solid sound with a soft cutaway Wildwood Concerto Satin CE.
Sustainable & Clear Cut Free
Made from sustainably-sourced exotic and native tonewoods. No clear-cut trees are used in these instruments. Breedlove uses salvaged and individually harvested timber and has deep relationships with responsible suppliers around the globe. As we move towards sustainability across all lines, owner Tom Bedell has visited 15 countries to discover exactly where the wood comes from, how it is selected and harvested, and how this affects the wildlife, the community, the forest and the planet.
Real Solid Tonewoods for Superior Sound
No Richlite or resin impregnated softwoods, no glue-heavy plywoods: just solid real tonewoods for real tone
Natural Sound Electronics

Sometimes called khaya, African mahogany has a familiar crisp, clean and warm voice and boasts an impressive versatility, taking well to fingerpicking as well as to a more robust strumming attack without losing clarity. All mahogany instruments offer a natural compression that delights blues players, folkies, and singer/songwriters.
