Red Cedar - Myrtlewood

Pursuit Exotic S Concert Nylon CE

Fans of nylon string guitars know that the lower tension and supple feel of filament versus steel allows for an exciting array of explorations and emotions. If you haven’t tried nylon, you don’t know what you’re missing, whether as a primary instrument or as an additional flavor in your personal musical stew. Part of Breedlove’s sustainable ECO Collection, the tortoise bound Pursuit Exotic S Concert Nylon offers exquisite tone and easy playability, with the classic “classical” sound of solid western red cedar supported by the full range of myrtlewood. Appointments, in addition to exacting Fishman Presys I electronics, include a slotted Asymmetrical headstock and sleek, easy-playing, satin finish African mahogany neck with soft cutaway access to every expressive fret.

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.
