Pursuit 12-String Specifications
Beautiful to look upon as well as hear, this superb instrument draws its sonic power and clarity from the Pacific Northwest-grown myrtlewood top, back and sides. Primarily used as a body wood, for the Oregon Concert LTD we’ve also used it as a top wood, creating a voice that’s lively and crisp, with powerful projection and detailed note articulation.
For the player who wants the stout projection of a Breedlove dreadnought with the unique look, midrange fullness, depth, clarity, and liveliness of locally sourced myrtlewood. The most accessible American-made platform for the Breedlove rounded dreadnought, it's voiced to project defined tone with volume and clarity and features a slightly rounded upper bout to provide a great sound chamber and to be less restrictive for the player.

The night is big. Everything heard and seen under the light of the moon looms closer and larger—howling wolves, stretched silhouettes. Even stillness takes on a life of its own. To evoke the expansive, embracing sounds and silence of night, we crafted the most textured big sound in a Breedlove Concert acoustic guitar ever... in the lightest guitar body possible. Meet the Breedlove USA Concert Moon Light, handcrafted in Bend, Oregon.
Sound frequencies travel most efficiently through lighter materials. With this in mind, Breedlove designers sought a solution for the Moon Light that would reduce weight and bring the acoustic guitar to life in a player’s hands. Through this search, we achieved the thinnest finish to-date on a Breedlove – a mere 5 mils on top and 2 mils for the back and sides.
To achieve the results, we conducted extensive Sound Profiling - frequency testing the Sitka tops and mahogany backs. As a result, our tops are thinner, the backs a bit thicker and the sound hole smaller to hit our target fundamental resonance frequency for textured big sound.
We wanted the sound of the Moon Light acoustic guitar to speak for itself. So we minimized binding and decoration. Coming in at just 3.5 pounds, the Breedlove USA Concert is almost 25% lighter than the Breedlove Premier Concert Mahogany, which is crafted with the same wood pairings.
The Moon Light features a rich Alaska Sitka spruce top, made from wood salvaged from downed trees in the Tongass National Forest. The Honduran mahogany used for the back, sides and neck are selectively harvested in the Custosel Concession in the Mayan Biosphere of Guatemala.
The comfort and simple beauty of the Breedlove USA Concert Moon Light acoustic guitar delivers complex notes that are beautiful to the ear with the robust big instrument sound of much larger guitar designs.
