African Mahogany - African Mahogany

Discovery S Concert CE Mahogany HB

Beginner-friendly design makes the Discovery S Series—part of Breedlove’s sustainable and accessible ECO Collection—a perfect introduction to the world of music. A thinner neck profile with narrow nut width and radiused fretboard makes for ultra-easy play. A pinless Delta bridge makes string changes simple. Famously warm, with a unique mid-range clarity, all African mahogany guitars, are favored by roots rockers and songwriters from Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan to Jeff Tweedy and Valerie June. Carefully crafted with trademark Breedlove sound DNA, these instruments, featuring earth-conscious, sonically superior EcoTonewood technology, sound like guitars costing three times the price. An all-gloss natural finish, highlighting the wood’s simple straight grain, make for a modern take on a classic guitar. This Guitar Center exclusive model is accented with herringbone rosette and purfling and also features a soft cutaway allowing easy access to upper frets and the more contemporary look favored my today’s players. Fishman Presys I electronics offer easy plug in and clear amplification. Breedlove only uses sustainable and ethically harvested tonewoods in every guitar they build, so you can feel even better about owning this gorgeous instrument.

Sustainable & Clear Cut Free
Made from sustainably-sourced exotic and native tonewoods. No clear-cut trees are used in these instruments. Breedlove uses salvaged and individually harvested timber and has deep relationships with responsible suppliers around the globe. As we move towards sustainability across all lines, owner Tom Bedell has visited 15 countries to discover exactly where the wood comes from, how it is selected and harvested, and how this affects the wildlife, the community, the forest and the planet.
