The Pursuit Plus Concert is a true reflection of Breedlove's distinctively crafted sound found in an exceptional appointment package. Breedlove's popular Concert body's back and sides are constructed of Java ebony, and the top features solid Engelmann spruce, delivering a warm, musical tone when played both acoustically and plugged in. You'll want to get your arms around it and immediately begin creating music from the first strum. Includes built-in USB port for easy interfacing with GarageBand and other recording software.
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. The Concert works well when played fingerstyle, or at a full strum.
Engelmann spruce is a silky pale spruce, similar in color to European spruce. It responds best to a light touch and light strings. It vibrates with developed overtones and is "ringier" than Sitka.
Back and Side Wood
Java ebony offers a powerful, clear tone, lending extra oomph to bass response, and features dramatic high-contrast striping.
Breedlove Bridge Truss
For centuries, one of the most difficult components of crafting guitars has been relieving the stress on the bridge without overbuilding the top and dampening sound. Originally invented over 20 years ago, the Breedlove Bridge Truss is still one of the most innovative truss systems on the market today. Refined and improved over the years, the Breedlove Bridge Truss relieves stress on the top, allowing use of a thinner, graduated top, providing for greater sustain and balance, more expression from the instrument, and greater structural integrity - all while adding longevity to the instrument.
Featuring a micro-USB interface for easy recording, the Fishman ISYS-301 USB Preamp System includes a side-mounted preamp with rotary controls for volume, tone (bass/treble), and phase; a Fishman Sonicore pickup; onboard easy-to-read 7-segment LED tuner; and ISYS+ USB combination battery box with 1/4" output and USB jack.
Lustrous full-gloss finish, pinless Breedlove bridge and Black binding: an attractive package that will make you proud to play this guitar.
Set-Up and Quality Assurance in Bend, Oregon USA
Breedlove's comprehensive quality control process provides the player with an instrument that will play perfectly right out of the box. Prior to shipment, every Breedlove instrument undergoes a rigorous 25-to-30-point inspection in Bend, Oregon by Breedlove's expert U.S. quality control team. Breedlove starts with a visual inspection: checking aesthetic and structural elements of the body and components for flaws. Next, each guitar is tuned and undergoes a play test, where Breedlove's craftspeople check nut height, relief, action, and string height. Based on the results of the play test, Breedlove then adjusts for maximum playability. Finally, each instrument is buffed and polished by hand with painstaking attention to detail. Once the instrument has passed inspection, a signed QC sticker is placed, and the instrument is carefully packed and shipped.
Breedlove players around the world can attest: With consistent, proper care, your Breedlove will give you a lifetime of service - and inspiration. In addition to materials and workmanship, Breedlove offers a two-year warranty on tuning machines and electronics packages. Cases and bags are subject to a one-year warranty covering defects in structure and hardware.
