The best seller of all the Pursuit Exotics, this guitar represents the amazing tonal balance of myrtlewood, Breedlove’s favorite Oregon tonewood for back and sides. With the powerful Sitka spruce top, this guitar is alive with sound and feel. There is no longer a need to choose between rosewood and mahogany, myrtlewood covers the entire range.


The Breedlove Concert is the original Breedlove shape. It first appeared in 1992, and has been the best-selling Breedlove body shape ever since. Designed specifically for the fingerstylist to be well balanced, compact, and comfortable to play, it generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The unique construction also allows the Concert to sing even at a full strum. If you’re a fingerstylist, or are seeking an instrument to use as vocal accompaniment, this is the shape for you. The Concert is engineered to provide exceptional sustain with a pronounced bass response, both of which can be achieved with a light touch. The graduated top works in harmony with the Breedlove Bridge Truss to provide an even response throughout the lows, mids, and highs, with sustain, and clear, concise, note-for-note projection.

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. Guitar strings can exert up to 230 pounds of pull from the nut to the bridge. Traditional methods for preventing top bowing at the bridge usually involve heavy internal bracing and thicker tops. The BBT compensates for this pressure in an innovative way: The BBT is mounted to the bridge from the inside and is connected into the tail block of the guitar, pulling downward on the underside of the bridge to distribute some of the tension, relieving pressure on the top. The resulting tonal effect on BBT-equipped guitars is more resonance and livelier sound with enhanced overtones.

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 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.

Sitka spruce, picea sitchensis, originates in the northwest United States. Sitka spruce has been the primary top wood for American-made instruments for decades. It is strong and light with extended harmonic content, and it nearly equals the power of Adirondack. It offers a strong, focused tone with a solid fundamental -- perfect for flatpicking styles. When compared with European spruce, Sitka delivers warmer, more fundamental sound, largely free of overtones. Sitka takes a slightly longer period of playing time to open up. It has a straight uniform grain and coloration ranges from white to pink to light brown.

Myrtlewood offers a strong fundamental with a powerful voice. Grown in the northwest, it is a favorite for many styles of playing and is used primarily for back and sides. Similar to maple, it is clear and bright with superb projection and sustain, and offers a very full and balanced sound. Highly unique, no two sets are alike. Coloration ranges from blonde to taupe.

Breedlove Pursuit Exotic - Sitka Spruce-Myrtlewood

Top - Solid Sitka Spruce
Back - Not solid, advertised as "layered", but whatever it is, it looks as good as solid wood, not plywood, when viewed through the soudhole.
Sides - probably just like back, but difficult to view
Strings - good quality D Addario EXP, but the guage is thick at 12-53 so tension is high
Bridge - Ebony
All of top, back, side, bridge woods seem of excellent quality, but the fingerboard and neck woods don't seem that good. Fingerboard is advertised as ebony just like the bridge, however looks of inferior quality than the bridge. The bridge is really dark, dense looking wood, not so the fingerboard. Neck is advertised as some kind of mahogany. Whichever kind it is, it doesn't look that good
The sound is naturally good coming from a solid top guitar, and with very good wood back. The strings have a kind of rumble and sustain that can come only from a solid wood guitar. However, myrtlewood doesn't seem to produce as vibrant sounds as the commonest back wood of mahogany. Also, myetlewood seems to respond better to bass strngs than the top end. I have PRS AXM20E. Breedlove has similar quality front but better quality back. The back of AXM20E looks like plywood, but maybe that's because it's mahogany. Overall, I like the build, sustain, resonance, and rumble of breedlove, but I prefer the sound on AXM20E. Breedlove is also good, but since its sound is not that vibrant, PRS is especially better when fingerprinting.
The factory setup and action was pathetically high. I lowered by filing the nut and grinding the saddle. The fretwork and neck is excellent with no disfiguration which allows for low action. But, the angle, wrt the body, at which the neck is set is too low. Ideally, it should be such that the line of sight from nut to end of fretboard, when extrapolated should be incident at the top of the bridge, but here it reaches at just about the center of the bridge. As a result, the saddle had to be ground so low for lowering the action that it is barely above the bridge.
Tuning pegs are very tight, would have liked them to be much lighter.
The electronics are all on the inside, so no incisions have to be made in the sides for equalizer etc. The system just has one volume know inside soundhole, not equalizer, no tone knobs etc.
The pinless bridge is awesome.


This is a beautiful guitar. Great sound Stunning for the price. The sound is not too warm and not too bright. Right about in the middle, where I like it. Am happy for this product.


Very balanced instrument, lots of tone and projection. The myrtlewood back and sides really provides a well balanced sound, not too forward or recessed, just right. In my opinion, it goes well with the solid spruce top. All in all, and excellent guitar.
