A well-balanced tone, ergonomically friendly design and stylish black gloss finish.
Breedlove’s Distinctively Crafted Sound in the ultra-popular concert body shape, the Discovery Concert Black CE Sitka Spruce-Mahogany acoustic-electric guitar is ready for amplification and is outfitted for ease of playability with a soft cutaway. Designed to be well-balanced, compact and comfortable to play, this acoustic-electric guitar generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end. It comes outfitted with a Fishman Presys I with side-mounted preamp and built-in tuner and has a stunning high-gloss black finish. Whether you’re just learning, rekindling your passion for the instrument, or an experienced player in need of an affordable instrument that will inspire you, the Discovery Concert Black CE Sitka Spruce-Mahogany is a great choice.
The concert is Breedlove's most popular body shape, favored by players because it is well-balanced, compact, comfortable to play, and offers all the qualities of a great sounding guitar. It generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The concert works well when played fingerstyle, as vocal accompaniment, or at a full strum.
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 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 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.
