A Breedlove acoustic-electric that's crafted for a versatile play style.
The Breedlove Pursuit Concert Bass acoustic-electric is not only Breedlove’s most affordable acoustic bass—it's among the most popular acoustic basses on the market. This 32""-scale Concert bass delivers surprising projection with its solid Sitka spruce top. The Breedlove bridge truss supports the top for aggressive play and profound sound projection. The robust, rich sound of this responsive bass guitar emanates from the solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides. It also includes the reliable and great-sounding L.R. Baggs EAS electronics. It's comfortable to hold and terrific to play. Players will sound better, play better and play more on a Breedlove Pursuit Series acoustic-electric bass guitar.
Solid Tonewood Top
The Breedlove Pursuit Concert Bass acoustic-electric features a solid top, which is the defining element of its sound. Through its vibration, the solid top drives the key aspects of the guitar's volume, tone, sustain and projection. The solid wood top translates the vibrations with more immediacy and purity of tone, and reacts more directly with the intent of a player. If you are at an intermediate level or above, you will appreciate the instantly recognizable benefits of this solid wood top.
Concert Body Shape
The Concert, Breedlove’s most popular body shape—designed 30 years ago and still going strong—is favored by discerning players for its versatile, balanced, articulate sound and easy playing ergonomic comfort. This flagship platform performs equally well strummed or fingerpicked, and is perfectly poised for accompanying the human voice.
Sitka Spruce Top
Sitka spruce is one of the most popular top tonewoods for a reason. It has an ideal strength-to-weight ratio, producing a strong fundamental, high velocity of sound and pleasing elasticity. Sitka sounds great for heavy strumming, light fingerpicking and everything in between.
Mahogany Back & Sides
Long treasured by cabinetmakers and shipwrights for its simple, straight-grained beauty, strength and workability, mahogany—used in tops, backs, sides and necks—is also one of the true classic tonewoods. Famous for its clear, strong fundamental; even string-to-string balance; and warm midrange emphasis, the mahogany back and sides of the Breedlove Discovery Concert pairs well with the spruce top. The sound produced by this combination has defined much of American roots music.
Breedlove Pinless Delta Bridge
Breedlove’s pinless Delta bridge is a distinctive element, with a sleek, modern contour that adds an extra bit of unexpected beauty to every instrument. But it also adds welcome functionality while anchoring great sound. Beginners love the fact that string changes are much easier without having to wrestle a traditional pin bridge, and professional players love it for the same reason. You'll no longer have to search for lost pins during a fast backstage string swap. And its low profile makes for perfect right hand damping.
The Breedlove Neck
Breedlove guitar necks feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. Unlike traditional dovetail neck joints that require major surgery for a neck re-set, it is easy to adjust the play action and neck angle with the Breedlove bolt-on neck and single-action truss rod. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish contributes to ideal playability. The finish process alone takes three days, including precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.
