Sitka Spruce - African Mahogany

Discovery S Concert Satin Bourbon 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. Sitka spruce, from the mighty wilds of the Pacific Northwest, creates the classic voice of the acoustic guitar—rich and sonorous, with a shimmering tone that lingers long after every strum. This Guitar Center exclusive Breedlove Discovery S Concert is a first guitar that will last a lifetime. It’s crafted with sonically superior EcoTonewood technology, and invites a variety of playing styles. A slim, fast neck and narrow nut width facilitate easy, comfortable play, while a pinless delta bridge makes string changing a breeze. The herringbone rosette and top purfling and satin bourbon finish add bespoke and refined aesthetics to the solid top’s raw beauty, while African mahogany back and sides add warmth and clarity. Breedlove only uses sustainable and ethically harvested tonewoods in every guitar they build, so you can feel even better about owning this gorgeous instrument.

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.
