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
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.

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.
