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.
The Concert Body Shape
The Concert is our most popular body shape, favored by players because it is well-balanced, compact, comfortable to play, and offers all the qualities of a great sounding guitar. It generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The Concert works well when played fingerstyle, as vocal accompaniment, or at a full strum.
Mahogany Top, Back and Sides
Long treasured by cabinetmakers and shipwrights for its simple, straight-grained beauty, strength and workability, mahogany—used in tops, backs, sides and necks—is also one of the true classic tonewoods, famous for its clear, strong fundamental; even string-to-string balance; and warm midrange emphasis. Mahogany pairs well with spruce tops as well as with itself in single species guitars—and both combinations define much of American roots music.
Breedlove Pinless Bridge
Breedlove’s pinless Delta bridge is a distinctive element, alright, with a sleek, modern contour that adds an extra bit of unexpected beauty to every instrument, from Discovery to Legacy. But it also adds welcome functionality while anchoring great sound. Beginners love the fact that string changes are much easier without having to wrestle a traditional pin bridge. Pros love it for the same reason! No more looking for lost pins during a fast backstage string swap. And its low profile makes for perfect right hand damping.
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.

Recently upgraded my acoustic to your Pursuit Concert. Played about 10 different guitars in the room, some of which were 3x as expensive, and none could compete with the Breedlove! Love the distinct shape and the incredible sound. You have a customer for life!
I bought this Guitar used at Guitar Center for $299, Until that day I have never heard of the brand before so needless to say I did not really pay it much attention at first. I was on a mission to buy a Martin. I played a couple and they had a used Martin for 350 the only downside is that it was not acoustic electric. The Breedlove was right next to it so I decided to pick her up and give her a go. I fell in love with that first strum. I did some research on google as I had it sitting in my lap and I could barely tell it was there. This is the best Guitar I have ever owned, I have been playing for 15 years and I have owned several guitars, Gibson’s, Fenders, Ibanez, Deans… whatever. The action is 2nd to none.
I bought this model as it was head and shoulders above the competitors in this price range. Truth be told, I had my mind set on a less expensive competitors guitar that I had already played a couple of times. I tried this one out as I was fascinated by the lower fret access. Sure, it was $300 more than the guitar I was anticipating buying, but, I soon found it was well worth it. Aside from the built in micro-USB port, Tuner, Tone controls and the Fishman pickup….it is an acoustic by the way, its response was incredible. The mahogany neck, back and sides matched with a solid cedar top allows for a very sensitive guitar. If you want a very warm and balanced sound, finger playing or light picking gives you that sound. If you want more bite and brightness, attacking the strings a little more aggressively wakes the guitar up. It almost like having two guitars in one.
A truly beautiful instrument, well balanced, with that great warmth to it. Great precision in both the lows and highs. I tested Martins, Seagulls, Taylors, and found absolutely none that reached the same balance in tones. Just wondering what my next Breedlove’s going to be.
Grabbed a Pursuit Concert in Nashville about a year ago and couldn’t be happier with it. I was sold on the great tone immediately, and it’s solid value all around. Great versatile acoustic guitar that stands out form the pack. Thanks Breedlove!
I bought this guitar last night and simply could not put it down once I got it home. This guitar is simply incredible, especially for the price. Its rich and warm tonal quality is a testament to the cedar top and mahogany sides and back. Then I plugged it into a small amp to test out the Fishman ISYS electronics and was blown away yet again. This is an absolute great guitar all around. I am very happy to have added it to my collection.
