Sitka Spruce - Mahogany

Pursuit Concert 12-String CE

12 String

The Pursuit Concert 12-String CE Sitka Spruce – Mahogany is Breedlove’s best-selling acoustic-electric 12-String in the ever-popular Concert body shape. Designed for a versatile play style, this guitar is ideal for strumming and rhythm, but is also easier to play fingerstyle due to the incredible action and professional setup. The defined sound of this responsive guitar emanates from the solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides.  It is fun and comfortable to play with its 1 7/8th inch radiused neck and soft cutaway, providing access to the entire fretboard. The asymmetrical headstock results in balanced and more direct string break angle, string tension consistency, and improved intonation. The pinless Delta bridge makes string changes quicker and easier. The Breedlove Bridge Truss reinforces the top making it unnecessary to lower the tuning to “D.” It includes the reliable and great sounding LR Baggs EAS electronics. It is comfortable to hold and terrific to play. You will sound better, play better, and play more on a Breedlove Pursuit Series acoustic-electric guitar.

Features

Solid Wood Top
Along with its body shape, a guitar’s top is the defining element of its sound, driving, through its vibration, the key aspects of volume, tone, sustain and projection. Spruce will, due in part to its famous stiffness-to-weight ratio, ring loud and clear. A solid wood top translates those vibrations with more immediacy and purity of tone, and reacts more directly with the intent of a player. If you are at an intermediate level or above, you will appreciate the instantly recognizable benefits of a solid wood top.
