Get Clean, Powerful Projection With The Breedlove Pursuit Exotic Companion Prairie Burst CE Acoustic Electric Guitar With Myrtlewood Top and Body
The Pursuit Exotic Companion Prairie Burst CE is Breedlove’s small, travel ready body acoustic-electric guitar with a warm and rich sound that emanates from the solid myrtlewood top and myrtlewood back and sides. The smaller Companion body shape was engineered for a light play style with clean and powerful projection from a small body guitar that is a joy to hold and play.
This guitar is ideal for the player looking for a more nuanced sound with more tonal complexity, and comfortable playing experience. Featuring the reliable and great sounding LR Baggs EAS electronic system, it can also be plugged in for amplification.
With a versatile play style conducive to strumming and fingerstyle, it’s the perfect professional grade instrument for players looking for an all-in-one guitar that can stand out and carry the rhythm or be soft, sweet and nuanced when played fingerstyle.
It comes standard with LR Baggs EAS electronics, which are highly reliable and sound fantastic. With the addition of an ebony fretboard, this cutaway Concert body allows for easy access to the entire fretboard.
Solid Exotic Tonewood 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. A solid wood top translates those vibrations with more immediacy and purity of tone, and reacts more directly with the intent of a player. You will appreciate the instantly recognizable benefits of a solid wood top.
Breedlove guitars feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss & neck finish also contributes to ideal playability. The labor-intensive finish process includes precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.
The Companion Body Shape
Historically, serious guitar players on-the-move have faced a rather tough dilemma; contend with the challenges of traveling with a full-size guitar or settle for a more convenient, smaller instrument with traditionally reduced sound quality. Thus was birthed the "travel guitar".
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.
Myrtlewood Top, Back And Sides
Popularized by Breedlove, myrtlewood, from the windblown Oregon coast, combines the best elements of rosewood, mahogany and maple—rich bass, warm midrange and clear, bright trebles—for truly versatile guitars. Each sonically distinct instrument is individualized by the gnarled, wildly varied, but always arresting grain patterns.
