OVERVIEW

All-mahogany parlor guitar provides plenty of warmth and projection.

Breedlove’s Discovery Parlor MHSE is incredibly balanced with an abundance of sound, volume, and projection with added warmth from the mahogany top, back and sides. You’ll be amazed at the amount of sound provided by such a small body, or if you’re plugged in, through the Fishman Ultratone. Whether you’re at home or in the studio, the Breedlove Pursuit Parlor MHSE is an intimate experience that connects you to your music in a visceral, inspiring way.

Breedlove Pinless Bridge
The Breedlove Pinless Bridge helps maintain the integrity of the top by eliminating the need for six drilled string holes. The fewer holes in your soundboard, the more evenly the sound wave can move across the interior, without any loss of energy. The Breedlove Pinless Bridge also provides a gentler string-break angle from the bridge to the top of the saddle, reducing saddle strain. This innovative bridge also makes string changes a breeze, especially on 12 strings. Plus, you’ll never again have to worry about lost, worn-out, or broken bridge pins.

Breedlove Neck
Breedlove guitars feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish also contributes to ideal playability. The labor-intensive finish process includes precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.

Limited Lifetime Warranty

Breedlove players around the world can attest: With consistent, proper care, your Breedlove will give you a lifetime of service – and inspiration. New Breedlove instruments, purchased through an authorized Breedlove dealer, are warrantied to be free of defects in materials and workmanship throughout the lifetime of the original owner.

Decent for the price & has a nicely balanced tone.

Comments about Breedlove Discovery Parlor Mhse Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I had to take about 2 mm off of the bridge in order for the action to be reasonably playable. The battery compartment is glued to the inside of the guitar, on the back in the upper left quarter. This means that if you have large hands, you will have to take off the strings to change the battery, or at least loosen all of the strings. Smaller handed people might only have to loosen the bottom 3 strings, but in any event it's a big PITA to change out the battery. Guitar plays easily and sounds good through the amp, and sounds OK without amp. Good articulation and balanced tone, with power in the mid-range. It came with a really nice gig bag also. It will need a set-up, so be prepared.

I wouldn't buy again

Comments about Breedlove Discovery Parlor Mhse Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar is very nice looking, and sounds great. It's larger than I expected for a parlor. The pickup was a selling point for me but didn't work on arrival. That was extremely frustrating. I decided to keep the guitar anyway instead of returning it because it does have a big sound and sounds grea unplugged.
Just beware, the electronics are a joke!

    Comments about Breedlove Discovery Parlor Mhse Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I tried a Parlor style guitar from another company and it wasn't good. This one is fantastic. Just as loud as my Breedlove Concert or Taylor Auditorium. Very comfortable to play. I'm borderline Arthritic. I recorded this and love it. Comes in a nice case and easy to take to a gig. I love the quality and the Mahogany finish is out of this world gorgeous. For those all wood snobs this is what I have to say. The tone from this guitar is better than my guitars costing 4x as much. It's a deal. Don't be a laminate snob. That's a bad name for plastic. This is a carefully constructed wood guitar with incredible finish. The Breedlove Discovery series including this guitar is the best kept secret. They're a steal. On the flip side I'm not impressed with the pickup or the internal battery. But since they installed the jack and under saddle pickup it's easy to replace if need be. I use the SD Woody for the moment but will install something nicer in the future.

        Comments about Breedlove Discovery Parlor Mhse Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        It was a sweet deal on a stupid deal. The tone is balance but don't expect it to sound the same as a dreadnought. The smaller size and twelve fret neck is great for women and smaller people. The included gig bag is a decent quality. While I've owned a few guitars over 50 years, this is the first new one ever purchased. I found it adequate to haul off to a music camp. It plays well out of the box and has potential for tweaking. The electronics gave me no problems. It seems ideal to haul around with minimal worries while I leave the better one at home. It would be a great guitar for a beginner as well.

        Greatness (with some caveats)

        Comments about Breedlove Discovery Parlor Mhse Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I love the balanced tone of this guitar both unplugged and plugged in. The satin finish looks and feels great throughout. Intonation is spot on, but as the action is a bit high it will need the saddle to be lowered a bit. With a good setup this guitar will be 5 stars. I purchased this as a SDOTD, in which case it's a phenomenal deal, but this would be a great deal even at it's usual price.

        I've always dug mahogany topped acoustics, I had been itching for a parlor, I need the ability to plug in to a PA, and this guitar wonderfully satisfies each of these areas at an extremely accessible price point.

        WOW! VERY HAPPY!

        By Loveguitars

        from Camas, WA

        Comments about Breedlove Discovery Parlor Mhse Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I just received this beautiful little parlor and I couldn't be happier. At this price point, I expected a guitar with manufacturer flaws. I couldn't have been more wrong. I keep looking for flaws, there aren't any. Okay, the set up is a little high for me but that is to be expected with any new or used guitar. The intonation is spot on, the finish is flawless. I was looking for a small guitar due to some sholder and neck pain. This little guitar feels great. The neck is comfortable and it sounds loud for such a small body. I am sure when I am ready to upgrade I will be looking at Breedlove.

        Comments about Breedlove Discovery Parlor Mhse Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I bought this guitar but when it came the pickup was broken. I had to send it back but I liked it enough to re-order it. It hasn't come in the mail so I can't make many comments other than the action was a little high. Most likely an easy fix with a set-up. Can't wait to get it in the mail.

            Great small body guitar. Very comfortable to play. Small body and 12 fret neck snugs right up. Although not in the specs it is a 25" scale. Price was great. Finish and workmanship equals more expensive guitars, especially as it comes with a pickup and gig bag. Easy guitar to make friends with. This one is a keeper.
