The Breedlove Pursuit Exotic Concert acoustic-electric guitar represents the tonal balance of myrtlewood, which has a unique voice blending the best of East Indian rosewood and maple with distinct and clear bass, mids and highs. Include the powerful Sitka spruce top, and this guitar is alive with a distinct and attractive sound many touring musicians, studio engineers, and session players crave. With a versatile play style conducive to strumming and fingerstyle, it’s the perfect professional-grade instrument for players looking for an all-in-one guitar that can stand out and carry the rhythm or be soft, sweet and nuanced when played fingerstyle. It comes standard with L.R. Baggs EAS electronics, which are highly reliable and sound fantastic. This is an ideal guitar for everyone from the touring musician to the beginner, and everyone in-between.
Solid Exotic Tonewood TopsAlong with its body shape, the Breedlove Pursuit Exotic Sitka-myrtlewood Concert cutaway CE acoustic-electric guitar’s top is the defining element of its sound, driving, through its vibration, the key aspects of volume, tone, sustain and projection. A solid wood top translates those vibrations with more immediacy and purity of tone, and reacts more directly with the intent of a player. If you are at an intermediate level or above, you will appreciate the instantly recognizable benefits of a solid wood top.
Concert Body ShapeThe 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 easy playing ergonomic comfort. This flagship platform performs equally well strummed or fingerpicked, and is perfectly poised for accompanying the human voice.
Sitka Spruce TopSitka spruce is one of the most popular top tonewoods for a reason. It has an ideal strength-to-weight ratio, producing a strong fundamental, high velocity of sound and pleasing elasticity. Sitka sounds great for heavy strumming, light fingerpicking and everything in between.
Myrtlewood Back & SidesPopularized by Breedlove, myrtlewood, from the windblown Oregon coast, combines the best elements of rosewood, mahogany and maple—rich bass, warm midrange and clear, bright trebles—for truly versatile guitars. Each sonically distinct instrument is individualized by the gnarled, wildly varied, but always arresting grain patterns.
Breedlove Pinless Delta BridgeBreedlove’s pinless Delta bridge is a distinctive element, with a sleek, modern contour that adds an extra bit of unexpected beauty to every instrument. But it also adds welcome functionality while anchoring great sound. Beginners love the fact that string changes are much easier without having to wrestle a traditional pin bridge, and professional players love it for the same reason. You'll no longer have to search for lost pins during a fast backstage string swap. And its low profile makes for perfect right hand damping.
The Breedlove NeckBreedlove 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.
