OVERVIEW

Comfortable to hold and terrific to play.

The Pursuit Concert acoustic-electric is Breedlove’s best-selling guitar. This all-gloss, red cedar-topped and ovangkol-bodied version sounds warm and beautiful. The Pursuit Concert Red Cedar-Ovangkol acoustic-electric guitar is easy to play with a 1-11/16" radiused neck. For live performances, it's equipped with Belcat's Iris-1 active pickup system with a 3-band EQ and discrete soundhole controls. Its cutaway body gives full access to all 20 frets.

A gig bag is included.

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.

Body Wood
Ovangkol is a plentiful evergreen that grows in Western Africa. It is a beautiful tonewood, often with interwoven colorful grain patters. Interestingly, its musical characteristics are almost identical to East Indian rosewood. Specific Gravity: 0.82 ovangkol, 0.83 East Indian rosewood; pounds per cubic feet: 52 ovangkol, 51 East Indian rosewood. Like rosewood, ovangkol efficiently projects bass tones resulting in a rich full sound.

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.

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.
