Breedlove Pursuit Concertina E
List Price $662.00
Breedlove is proud to introduce the smaller bodied Concertina 2019 to the Pursuit Series lineup. Based on the ever-popular Pursuit Concert platform, this smaller body guitar sounds warm and beautiful with a solid red cedar top and mahogany back, but with additional sound and projection from the Concertina body. This guitar is ideal for the player looking for a more nuanced sound with more tonal complexity, and a very comfortable playing experience. Featuring the popular LR Baggs EAS electronic system, it can also be plugged in for amplification.
Breedlove's small 2019 body guitar delivers a surprisingly clear, crisp, loud sound. Its 12-frets to the body design make it a joy to play. Extensive Sound Optimization engineering has resulted in a body shape that has a bigger sound and is more comfortable to play than a traditional parlor.
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.
For musicians who play a variety of instruments, or are looking for a very specific tone offered by cedar, guitars made with this tonewood can offer a nice alternative to the spruces and other top tonewoods. This tonewood produces wonderful tones with a light touch, therefore it's great for fingerstyle playing. If you are a fingerstyle player, then you will love the way this guitar amplifies the sound and tone.
This tonewood usually has a reddish and/or brown color, which makes the guitars very attractive. The color can range from very dark to light in tone, so you have a wide variety of aesthetic options to choose from. This tonewood has a smooth textured surface that looks even more lustrous after the finish is applied.
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.
Back and Side Wood
Mahogany is a medium-lightweight wood, ranging in color from light brown to dark, primarily used for necks because of the feel and the stability it provides. Balanced, resonant tone with notable sustain. Thick bottom end, rich midrange, and controlled, warm top end. Found from southern Mexico through Central America and south to Brazil and Bolivia. Mahogany is the national tree of Belize, where the national coat of arms features a mahogany tree with two woodcutters bearing an axes and paddle under the national motto, "Sub umbra florero", which is Latin for "Under the shade I flourish".
