OVERVIEW

Breedlove's most popular body shape with special electronics, including a USB port for simplified recording.

The Pursuit Concert Bubinga guitar is built on Breedlove's best-selling Concert body shape. It features the amazing tone delivered by the Breedlove Bridge Truss system for sustain and clarity in each note. A solid Sitka spruce top and bubinga back and sides generate low-end resonance with good projection, making this acoustic-electric guitar an excellent value. Designed, engineered, and quality-controlled in Bend, Oregon, U.S.A. Crafted in China. This guitar is available exclusively at Guitar Center, Musicians Friend and Music & Arts.


Concert Body Shape

The Breedlove Concert is the original Breedlove shape. It first appeared in 1992, and has been the best-selling Breedlove body shape ever since. Designed specifically for the fingerstylist to be well balanced, compact, and comfortable to play, it generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The unique construction also allows the Concert to sing even at a full strum. If you’re a fingerstylist, or are seeking an instrument to use as vocal accompaniment, this is the shape for you. The Concert is engineered to provide exceptional sustain with a pronounced bass response, both of which can be achieved with a light touch. The graduated top works in harmony with the Breedlove Bridge Truss to provide an even response throughout the lows, mids, and highs, with sustain, and clear, concise, note-for-note projection.

Top Wood
Sitka spruce, picea sitchensis, originates in the northwest United States. Sitka spruce has been the primary top wood for American-made instruments for decades. It is strong and light with extended harmonic content, and it nearly equals the power of Adirondack. It offers a strong, focused tone with a solid fundamental -- perfect for flatpicking styles. When compared with European spruce, Sitka delivers warmer, more fundamental sound, largely free of overtones. Sitka takes a slightly longer period of playing time to open up. It has a straight uniform grain and coloration ranges from white to pink to light brown.

Breedlove Bridge Truss
The Breedlove Bridge Truss (BBT) reduces tension on the soundboard of the guitar, so the top wood is able to vibrate more freely, producing remarkable sustain, balance, and clarity. The BBT also allows for a thinner graduated top, thereby allowing Breedlove craftsmen to bring out the optimal sound from the top wood without sacrificing structural stability. Relieving much of the string tension from the bridge prevents “bridge belly,” ensuring top stability for decades. Guitar strings can exert up to 230 pounds of pull from the nut to the bridge. Traditional methods for preventing top bowing at the bridge usually involve heavy internal bracing and thicker tops. The BBT compensates for this pressure in an innovative way: The BBT is mounted to the bridge from the inside and is connected into the tail block of the guitar, pulling downward on the underside of the bridge to distribute some of the tension, relieving pressure on the top. The resulting tonal effect on BBT-equipped guitars is more resonance and livelier sound with enhanced overtones.

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.

Set Up and Quality Assurance in Bend, Oregon
The comprehensive quality control process provides the player with an instrument that will play perfectly right out of the box. Prior to shipment, every Breedlove instrument undergoes a rigorous 25-to-30-point inspection in Bend, Oregon by their expert U.S. quality control team. They start with a visual inspection: checking aesthetic and structural elements of the body and components for flaws. Next, each guitar is tuned and undergoes a play test, where our craftspeople check nut height, relief, action and string height. Based on the results of the play test, they are adjusted for maximum playability. Finally, each instrument is buffed and polished by hand with painstaking attention to detail. Once the instrument has passed inspection, a signed QC sticker is placed, and the instrument is carefully packed and shipped.

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 are warrantied to be free of defects in materials and workmanship throughout the lifetime of the original owner. In addition to materials and workmanship, Breedlove offers a two-year warranty on tuning machines and electronics packages.

Includes gig bag.

About Me Experienced

Comments about Breedlove Pursuit Concert Bubinga Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is a fantastic guitar for very little money. Very clear and articulated sound, decent electronics, and very playable. The fit and finish are near perfect. I could only find two minor flaws that escaped QA - some finish clouding on the side of the neck near the 15th & 16th frets, and a few barely noticeable finish scratches where the electronics are mounted on the upper bout.

It came perfectly set up and ready to play out of the box, but the crazy weather swings this winter took care of that pretty quickly and the high E has started to buzz and fret out a bit. A quick truss rod adjustment will fix that though, nothing that Breedlove could have done in their setup to anticipate the winter of '15. Lol.

One thing that buyers should be aware of is that this guitar DOES NOT COME WITH A HARDSHELL CASE AS STATED IN THE AD COPY. It comes with a cheapish Breedlove branded gig bag (not padded or even plush inside). Musician's Friend made it right with one phone call and sent me their house brand dreadnaught case which is the closest fit they have. It's not a perfect fit and I'll eventually likely splurge for a Breedlove case, but it'll do for now with a bit of soft foam in the bottom to make it more snug.

Don't let this minor issue turn you off from this guitar though. The Bubinga is absolutely gorgeous, and the sound is fantastic.
