Solid Tonewood TopThe Breedlove Discovery Concerto Cutaway CE acoustic-electric guitar 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.
Concerto Body ShapeLoud, textured and supremely satisfying, Breedlove’s proprietary Concerto delivers more volume and more nuance than the standard classic dreadnought. Breedlove's largest body shape retains trademark Breedlove playing comfort while summoning a lush, complex tonal response.
Sitka Spruce TopSitka 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 & SidesLong 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 Concerto cutaway CE acoustic-electric pairs well with the spruce top. The sound produced by this combination has defined much of American roots music.
Breedlove Pinless Delta BridgeBreedlove’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 NeckBreedlove 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.
About the Breedlove Discovery SeriesBeginner-friendly design makes the Discovery Series a perfect introduction to the world of music. A thinner neck profile with narrow nut width and radiused fretboard makes for ultra-easy play. A pinless Delta bridge makes string changing simple and fun. Carefully crafted with trademark Breedlove sound DNA, these instruments sound like guitars costing three times the price.
