Overview

For players looking for distinctively crafted sound at an affordable price, the Discovery Dreadnought offers substantial projection for ensemble work, and yet retains the refinement needed for vocal accompaniment. This easy-to-play instrument is ideal for entry-level players who want access to the renowned balance and clarity of a Breedlove guitar. The Discovery Dreadnought has a sapele laminate body with a solid Sitka spruce top and a nato neck with a rosewood fretboard.

Body Shape
The Breedlove Dreadnought is slightly more rounded than traditional dreadnoughts, producing beautifully full, punchy, and articulate tones. The Dreadnought appeals to players inspired by the familiarity of a dreadnought, who are looking for nuance and richness from their instrument. The Breedlove Dreadnought projects well, so it excels in an ensemble, and yet retains the refinement needed for vocal accompaniment.

Top
Sitka spruce is grown in the northwest, and has been the primary top wood for U.S.A. instruments for many decades. It is strong, light, and gives an extended harmonic content and nearly equals the power of Adirondack.

Back and Sides
Maple is great for standing out among other instruments. With a powerful fundamental and even harmonics, it is clear and present, but without pronounced peaks and valleys in the harmonic content. It's a good choice for many sizes and shapes, and works well for strumming and fingerstyle.

Hand-Crafted Neck
A satin-finished nato mahogany neck makes the neck comfortable and easy to play.

Aesthetic Appointments
Lustrous full-gloss finish, pinless Breedlove bridge and black binding: an attractive package that will make you proud to play this guitar.

Setup and Quality Assurance in Bend, Oregon USA
Breedlove's comprehensive quality control process provides the player with an instrument that will play great right out of the box. Prior to shipment, every Breedlove instrument undergoes a rigorous multi-point inspection in Bend, Oregon by our expert U.S. quality control team. We start with a visual inspection: we check aesthetic and structural elements of the body and all 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, we then adjust for maximum playability. Next, 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.

Limited Lifetime Warranty
Breedlove players around the world can attest: With consistent, proper care, your Breedlove will give you a lifetime of service -- and inspiration. New Breedlove instruments, purchased through an authorized Breedlove dealer, are warranted to be free of defects in materials and workmanship throughout the lifetime of the original owner. 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. Full details on their Limited Lifetime Warranty are available on our website.

    Lots of Taylor vibe in this baby......it's a really nice guitar for the price, with nice fit & finish & a nice & crisp Taylor-esque brightness. It's a bit spartan yet have a nice feel for some spirted playing.....

      Comments about Breedlove Discovery Dreadnought Maple Acoustic Guitar Regular:

      I bought this guitar immediately after trying it out, as it was one of a couple of guitars that I was already interested in. It just flat out was a better sounding guitar to my ears than the other guitars I tried out. I also was really interested in the pinless bridge after years upon years of screwing around with bridge pins. Turns out, pinless bridges are as awesome as I hoped they would be. I am just a bedroom player with no real desire to play out, but I still want a guitar that inspires me to play and sounds good. This does that, and the neck is noticeably easier to play for me, as advertised. Anyway, I can't justify spending a ton of money on a high end guitar, and with the wide selection of good guitars out there today, I don't really need to.

        I went to the Langhorne Pa store after doing much research on the web looking for a good guitar for 3-400 dollars. I saw that the Discovery Dreadnought was in stock and had heard nothing but good about Breedlove guitars. I tried several guitars and once I played this one I knew it was the one. Great sound, nice deep bass tones and bright highs. Right off the rack the action was very nice and comfy. Then I got a great surprise they had a clearance on this item and I got this guitar for way less than I expected and a Breedlove gig bag was included.

          Comments about Breedlove Discovery Dreadnought Maple Acoustic Guitar Regular:

          What a great deal for your money! I bought this for my son who is in his 20s and wanted just a cheap acoustic to bring it to school where teaching. I was thinking 150$ Yamaha or Ibanez. As soon as I saw this Breedlove, tried it out, I said this is your guitar. It was on sale, it was blemished. After that we tried out several Yamahas, Ibanez etc., always kept coming back to this Breedlove.

          Has a very good power, clear basses, nice neck, well dressed frets. Like all new acoustics, the action at the nut is set up pretty high, we'll take care of it ourselves when we have time.

          Have put new strings on it (Elixirs), plays like a dream. Even though I am not into steel string acoustics, I was thinking about getting one like that for myself, had so much fun playing it :).

            Tried it out at the local GC. Great sound, excellent feel like it was made for me. Picked this over a $500 Martin. If something happened to this one would definitely get another.
