Overview

For musicians seeking amazing power with a clear and sweet tone, both acoustically and plugged in, the Pursuit Concert Koa is a true reflection of Breedlove’s Distinctively Crafted Sound. Its solid koa top and koa back and sides "open up" the more the instrument is played, expanding the midrange, for an even richer, sweeter tone over time. The stunning beauty of the figured koa make the Pursuit Concert Koa a work of art as well as an extraordinary musical instrument. Includes built-in Fishman Isys + USB port for amplification and easy interfacing with recording software.


Top Wood
As a tropical hardwood, a koa top will initially project a bright and focused tone, especially together with koa back and sides, but as it's played, it matures into an increasingly warm, rich, sweet sound with healthy overtone "bloom," especially in the midrange. A common mistake is when a "bright" player buys a koa-top guitar in part for its visual beauty, finds it to be too bright, and doesn't play it enough to allow the wood to develop its resonant tone.

Breedlove Bridge Truss
The Breedlove Bridge Truss (BBT) reduces tension on the soundboard of the guitar, so the top wood is able to vibrate more freely, producing remarkable sustain, balance, and clarity. The BBT also allows for a thinner graduated top, thereby allowing Breedlove craftsmen to bring out the optimal sound from the top wood without sacrificing structural stability. Relieving much of the string tension from the bridge prevents “bridge belly,” ensuring top stability for decades. Guitar strings can exert up to 230 pounds of pull from the nut to the bridge. Traditional methods for preventing top bowing at the bridge usually involve heavy internal bracing and thicker tops. The BBT compensates for this pressure in an innovative way: The BBT is mounted to the bridge from the inside and is connected into the tail block of the guitar, pulling downward on the underside of the bridge to distribute some of the tension, relieving pressure on the top. The resulting tonal effect on BBT-equipped guitars is more resonance and livelier sound with enhanced overtones.

Breedlove Pinless Bridge
The Breedlove Pinless Bridge helps maintain the integrity of the top by eliminating the need for six drilled string holes. The fewer holes in your soundboard, the more evenly the sound wave can move across the interior, without any loss of energy. The Breedlove Pinless Bridge also provides a gentler string-break angle from the bridge to the top of the saddle, reducing saddle strain. This innovative bridge also makes string changes a breeze, especially on 12 strings. Plus, you’ll never again have to worry about lost, worn-out, or broken bridge pins.

Breedlove Neck
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.

Concert Body Shape
The Breedlove Concert is the original Breedlove shape. It first appeared in 1992, and has been the best-selling Breedlove body shape ever since. Designed specifically for the fingerstylist to be well balanced, compact, and comfortable to play, it generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The unique construction also allows the Concert to sing even at a full strum. If you’re a fingerstylist, or are seeking an instrument to use as vocal accompaniment, this is the shape for you. The Concert is engineered to provide exceptional sustain with a pronounced bass response, both of which can be achieved with a light touch. The graduated top works in harmony with the Breedlove Bridge Truss to provide an even response throughout the lows, mids, and highs, with sustain, and clear, concise, note-for-note projection.

Set Up and Quality Assurance in Bend, Oregon
The 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 their expert U.S. quality control team. They start 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 our craftspeople check nut height, relief, action and string height. Based on the results of the play test, they are adjusted 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.

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 are warrantied 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.

Includes gig bag.

    Comments about Breedlove Pursuit Concert Koa Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    My son and I looked at every guitar in this price range then went to G.C. and he played them all. The Breedlove had the richest,warmest lows and mids by a huge margin. I don't play but like to think I have a good ear for quality guitars when I hear them. We both love this one and would recommend this guitar to anyone who loves rich beautiful sound. Thanks Guitar Center, you guys rock!

      Comments about Breedlove Pursuit Concert Koa Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      The Breedlove Pursuit Concert Koa acoustic-electric guitar is a dream to play. The all solid wood koa top, back and sides sound warm, clear and have a nice projection. I'm a gigging singer/songwriter and also play with my band Star Children and was looking to purchase my main guitar and was only looking at the big three guitar makers and came across this beauty and now this is my main instrument. I'm a total Breedlove fan now!

      Comments about Breedlove Pursuit Concert Koa Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Like I said earlier I won this great guitar. Guitar Center is the lowest price I have seen so far.
      I usually make all my purchases from them because they always have great prices. This guitar
      Is beautiful and I am very excited about having it. It really does sound awesome. Soft low tones with better middle tones the more you play it. I read that. it sounds great to me already.
