Pursuit Exotic S Concert Edgeburst CE

To pursue is to “endeavor to attain.” Something ‘exotic’ is at once glamorous and romantic, beguiling. Breedlove’s new Pursuit Exotic S Concert Edgeburst CE—featuring the earth-conscious, sonically superior EcoTonewood technology found in all ECO Collection instruments—is nothing if not beguiling and worthy of endeavor. Hawaiian koa offers a unique brilliance in both its rich sound and in the natural beauty of its tropical grain, which is highlighted here by a contemporary gloss edgeburst finish with tortoise binding. The pioneering soft cutaway Concert body shape is supremely versatile, with koa adding shine to fingerpicked passages and gentle muscle to firmer strumming. Scalloped bracing gives you a nuanced tonal palette typically found only on custom instruments.

Features

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.
