Breedlove Discovery S Concerto Edgeburst CE European Spruce African Mahogany Acoustic Guitar

The Breedlove Discovery S Concerto Edgeburst CE Acoustic Electric Guitar is all you could want in a first guitar or a new favorite guitar and more! Crafted with earth-conscious, sonically superior EcoTonewood technology, this instrument in a distinctive gloss Edgeburst finish that helps you stand out from the crowd. It is designed in Bend with serious strumming in mind. A stylish soft cutaway, slim, fast neck, and narrow nut width facilitate easy play; a solid European spruce top produces a classic, thrilling tone and projection. Great acoustic sound encourages you to play better, sound better and play more, and Fishman Presys I electronics let you rock as loud as you’d like. Discover the Breedlove Eco Collection where the guitar meets the forest.

Sustainable and Clear Cut Free

Made from sustainably-sourced exotic and native tonewoods. No clear-cut trees are used in these instruments. Breedlove uses salvaged and individually harvested timber and has deep relationships with responsible suppliers around the globe. As Breedlove moves towards sustainability across all lines, owner Tom Bedell has visited 15 countries to discover exactly where the wood comes from, how it is selected and harvested, and how this affects the wildlife, the community, the forest, and the planet.

Solid Wood Tops

Along with its body shape, a guitar’s top is the defining element of its sound, driving, through its vibration, the key aspects of volume, tone, sustain, and projection. Spruce will, due in part to its famous stiffness-to-weight ratio, ring loud and clear. A solid wood top translates those 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 a solid wood top.

The Concerto Body Shape

Introducing the Breedlove Concerto, a new guitar shape created to elicit more volume than a classic dreadnought, and more lush, complex tonal resonance in a comfortable body shape that feels just right. Loud, textured, and supremely satisfying.

European Spruce Top

Starting in late June 2022, this model will transition at retail from Sitka spruce to European spruce as Breedlove continually works to update their guitars with the most sustainable sourcing available on the market. Rest assured any Eco Collection guitar uses only fully sustainable, clear-cut free tonewoods.

Mahogany Back and 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. Mahogany pairs well with spruce tops as well as with itself in single species guitars and both combinations define much of American roots music.

Breedlove Pinless Bridge

Breedlove’s pinless Delta bridge is a distinctive element, alright, with a sleek, modern contour that adds an extra bit of unexpected beauty to every instrument, from Discovery to Legacy. 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. Pros love it for the same reason! No more looking for lost pins during a fast backstage string swap. And its low profile makes for perfect right-hand damping.

The 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.

Heavy Play Style

The Breedlove Play Style system was created to help you, the player, select your sound and playing style. Finding the most appropriate guitar to fit your sound requires finding not only the correct body shape but the proper tonewood combinations to fit your style of play. Each Breedlove guitar is designed for a specific play style and sound, the Play Style systems assign a playing style icon to each instrument.

Heavier Play, Strumming

Historically, larger guitars are designed for bigger sounds and stronger play. Breedlove can achieve this robust playing style on the guitar body shape that is most comfortable to the player.
