Pursuit Exotic S Companion Tiger’s Eye CE

Myrtlewood, while native to Oregon’s Pacific coast, might just be the most ‘exotic’ of all tonewoods, capturing the deep bass of rosewood, the pure warmth of mahogany and the sweet, glassy treble of maple in one exquisite, visually enchanting package—here under an equally captivating tortoise-bound Tiger’s Eye gloss finish. This sustainable acoustic electric Pursuit Exotic S Companion is much more than just a travel guitar. It’s a songwriter’s best friend and a just-right solution for small stages or small statures. A fast, slim neck and soft cutaway access to every fret let your fingers, and your heart, have their say. Sound better than ever with Breedlove’s earth-conscious, sonically superior EcoTonewood technology. Get fierce with a Tiger’s Eye!
