From the manufacturer
Breedlove Pursuit Series
With the Pursuit Series, Breedlove wanted to offer as many options as possible, all in affordable reach, with great sounding solid wood tops, LR Baggs EAS electronics and limited lifetime warranties. Comfortable body shapes and slim, fast necks make it easy to play.
Concertina Body Shape
Breedloveâs small body guitar, delivers a surprisingly clear, crisp, loud sound. Itâs 12-frets to the body design make it a joy to play, and produces a body shape that has a big sound and is comfortable to play.
Top Tonewood: Western Red Cedar
Softer than spruce, with a warmer cast to its look and its tone, western red cedar has less headroom for a heavy attack, but comes aliveâwith sweet harmonics and a wide tonal paletteâfor a lighter touch. Related to mahogany, it shares a focused sound, much loved by fingerstylists.
Back amp; Sides Tonewood: Mahogany
Long treasured by cabinetmakers and shipwrights for its simple, straight-grained beauty, strength and workability, mahoganyâused in tops, backs, sides and necksâis also one of the true classic tonewoods, famous for its clear, strong fundamental; even string-to-string balance; and warm midrange emphasis. Mahogany pairs well with spruce tops as well as with itself in single species guitarsâand both combinations define much of American roots music.
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.
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, youâll never again have to worry about lost, worn-out, or broken bridge pins.
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.
LR Baggs EAS Electronics
Unlike typical undersaddle acoustic guitar pickups that are dependent on string compression for their sound, the Element was engineered to mirror the soundboardâs actual movement as you play.
At the heart of the pickup, a flexible film sensor only 2 thousandths of an inch thick picks up the guitarâs most delicate nuances. Tracking the motion of the top rather than a direct string attack suppresses 'quack'.caused by compression and unlocks the Elementâs unrivaled dynamic range. The pickupâs minimalist construction lessens any influence on the acoustic properties and creates an intimate coupling between the pickup and guitar for the highest fidelity possible.
