Pursuit Exotic S Concert Edgeburst CE Koa-Koa
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.
Go Exotic, sustainably! Breedlove has long specialized in offering intriguing alternative tonewoods, introducing, for example, hauntingly figured Oregon myrtlewood to the guitar world 25 years ago. The Pursuit Exotic S Series—featuring TUSQ nuts and saddles and Breedlove’s earth-conscious, sonically superior EcoTonewood technology—allows you to affordably experience the pure, nuanced sound and striking visual beauty of exotically alluring myrtlewood, koa and cedar. Side-mounted Fishman Presys I electronics (with built-in tuner, volume, contour and phase controls) make amplification a breeze.
Sustainable, integrated tonewood technology, optimized natural sound
With EcoTonewood, Breedlove makes laminate technology sustainable, introducing a resonant core tonewood layer of clear-cut free, individually harvested African mahogany in place of the typical tone-robbing softwoods used in standard acoustic guitar manufacture. Coupled with Breedlove’s deep research into revolutionary body shapes; building to target tonewood weight adds to the optimized, natural sound of each guitar in the ECO Collection. Breedlove creates these better sounding laminate guitars while being kind to the earth and maintaining an accessible price.
