OVERVIEW

Popular tonewood pair with gorgeous Sunburst finish and Fishman electronics.

The Pursuit Dreadnought IR CESB captures Breedlove’s distinctively crafted sound in an affordable package. Exuding an earthy, warm response from a light touch, the spruce-rosewood wood set is one of the most esteemed tonewood combinations. The popular dreadnought shape is topped by solid Sitka spruce, producing mature tones that are detailed and pleasing. Indian rosewood graces the back and sides for a warm and clear tone. Includes built-in Fishman Ultratone system for easy plug-and-play amplification.

Body Shape
Breedlove set out to enhance the traditional dreadnought sound, and the results are evident. If you’re inspired by the familiarity of a dread, but are looking for more nuance and richness than usual, the Breedlove Dreadnought delivers. The shape is slightly more rounded than traditional dreadnoughts and produces beautifully full, punchy, and articulate tones. It also provides excellent projection and articulation, so it excels in any ensemble. The hand-graduated top provides the balance and clarity that make this one of the most innovative and expressive-sounding dreadnoughts on the market.

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 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.

Includes gig bag.

    Comments about Breedlove Pursuit Dreadnought IR CESB Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Great guitar for the money. Sitka top with Indian Rosewood laminate back and sides have a unique and beautiful tone. Be aware this is a dreadnought cutaway, not the concert shape. Love to tone this produces just beware if you are needing the smaller body size.

      Comments about Breedlove Pursuit Dreadnought IR CESB Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      First off, not what the guitar looks like. The one I got must be their new body for this line which looks much like most of their other guitars with the pointy headstock and less pronounced horn at the cutaway. I had to double check the label inside to make sure they sent me the right guitar. Other websites have this same photo to for this model so maybe it's on Breedlove for not sending updated photos idk The thing came in tune right out of the box and burst looks great in person. It looks like a bigger body in these pics would like a side by side comparison to what I got. This one actually fits in a case I already have so for the better I guess
