Overview

The Pursuit Dreadnought Mahogany offers the projection of a full-depth dreadnought, with a desirable midrange and powerful punch of mahogany for tonal warmth when played both acoustically and plugged in. The Pursuit Dreadnought Mahogany is a versatile instrument that will project well, and it offers Breedlove’s distinctively crafted sound in an affordable package. Includes built-in USB port for easy interfacing with recording software.

Body Shape
Breedlove set out to enhance the traditional dreadnought sound, and the results are evident. If you’re inspired by the familiarity of a dread, but are looking for more nuance and richness than usual, the Breedlove Dreadnought delivers. The shape is slightly more rounded than traditional dreadnoughts and produces beautifully full, punchy, and articulate tones. It also provides excellent projection and articulation, so it excels in any ensemble. The hand-graduated top provides the balance and clarity that make this one of the most innovative and expressive-sounding dreadnoughts on the market.


Top Wood
Genuine mahogany, swietenia macrophylla, can be found from Mexico to southern Amazonia in Brazil. Mahogany is a medium-lightweight wood, ranging in color from light brown to dark, and is primarily used for necks because of the feel and the stability it provides. It offers a balanced, resonant tone with notable sustain – a thick bottom end, rich midrange, and controlled, warm top end finish out the sound. The coloration is a reddish brown.

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.

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. 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 craftspeople check nut height, relief, action, and string height. Based on the results of the play test, Breedlove's QC team then adjust 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.

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.

Includes gig bag.

Comments about Breedlove Pursuit Dreadnought Mahogany Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The guitar has a beautiful finish and plays well below the fretboard extension. Above the neck and body joint the fretboard moves up away from the body, which makes all notes on all strings above the 14th to fret out.

    Comments about Breedlove Pursuit Dreadnought Mahogany Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This isn't my favorite guitar for songwriting in particular. I find it hard to be happy with it because the sound isn't my style. I also notice how dull it sounds and it doesn't give off a good after taste in the sound. I like a rich soulful guitar sound with a loud carry on style. Washburns have been the best experience for me, because some have two different layers of woods in it. it makes the sound quality more versatile. This guitar I bought sounds cheaply made and I can get a better price and quality with Washburn. No hate on this it is good for studio recordings, but not great enough. Also, I find it harder to pick with it and it is flat sounding. Although, the style is beautifully made. Great job on that. :)

      Comments about Breedlove Pursuit Dreadnought Mahogany Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Guitar was perfect! Fit and finish is exceptional in this price range. I like the fact that it is made in the USA. Breedlove has a reputation of building quality. It has a solid wood top, and real bone nut and saddle, instead of plastic. The added option I was really surprised to see was the USB port to connect to my Computer to record.

        Comments about Breedlove Pursuit Dreadnought Mahogany Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I decided to purchase this guitar after being dissatisfied with a Martin I had previously purchased. (Granted, it was a lower end Martin.) But this guitar has a sturdy construction, great sound, and is easy to fret. I mainly use it for practicing, jamming with friends, or performing at small venues. This guitar has great Fishman electronics and sounds good through a sound system.
