Get Responsive Tone and Good Looks - The Breedlove Pursuit Exotic Concert CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Sitka Spruce Top and Ziricote Body
The Pursuit Exotic Concert CE Sitka Spruce & Ziricote was designed as a versatile acoustic-electric guitar with a very balanced richness between the bass, mids, and highs. Grown in southern Mexico, the beauty of ziricote tonewood pairs well with the responsiveness of Sitka spruce.
Visually, ziricote is subtly stunning with a rich chocolate color scape accented by a variety of figures and distinct patterns. 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.
This is an ideal guitar for everyone from the touring musician to the beginner, and everyone in-between. You will sound better, play better, and play more on a Breedlove Pursuit Exotic Series acoustic-electric guitar.
Solid 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. 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.
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.
The Concert Body Shape
The Concert is Breedlove's 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.
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.
Sitka Spruce Top
The world's most popular top wood, for a reason. Sitka has an ideal strength-to-weight ratio, yielding a strong fundamental, high velocity of sound, and a pleasing elasticity. Translation? Sitka sounds great for heavy strumming, light fingerpicking, and everything in between.
Ziricote Back And Sides
Favored by classical, baroque, and flamenco players, ziricote's allure comes from its rich, booming bass response, matched only by its luminous treble. Often compared visually to Brazilian rosewood, but with inky black lines and darker, ghostlike grey tones, ziricote also boasts a natural reverb that surrounds both player and audience.
