Product Description

Breedlove Pursuit Nylon- For the up-and-coming musician seeking Breedlove's distinctively crafted sound in a great playing, affordable acoustic-electric nylon-string guitar.

The Breedlove Pursuit Nylon is a great sounding acoustic-electric guitar that goes beyond the design of standard classical-style guitars. Utilizing a radiused fretboard and slightly smaller nut width than traditional builds, the Pursuit Nylon allows for a seamless transition from steel-string instruments. Played plugged in or acoustic, this nylon-string guitar will fit into all your musical scenarios. Includes built-in USB port for easy interfacing with GarageBand and other recording software.

Body Shape
The Concert is Breedlove’s most popular body shape, favored by players because it is well-balanced, compact, comfortable to play, and offers all the qualities of a great sounding guitar. It generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The Concert works well when played fingerstyle, as vocal accompaniment, or at a full strum.

Top Wood
Western red cedar is a wonderful wood for fingerstyle players. It is softer than spruce, so it requires a careful and accurate touch, and it rewards with sweet, extended harmonic content.

Back and Side Wood
Sapele is similar both visually and tonally to dense mahogany, but both darker and harder, giving it a strong visual presence and a bit more upper-harmonic content and low-end clarity. It's a good choice for many sizes and shapes, and works well for strumming and fingerstyle.

Breedlove Bridge Truss
For centuries, one of the most difficult components of crafting guitars has been relieving the stress on the bridge without overbuilding the top and dampening sound. Originally invented over 20 years ago, the Breedlove Bridge Truss is still one of the most innovative truss systems on the market today. Refined and improved over the years, the Breedlove Bridge Truss relieves stress on the top, allowing use of a thinner, graduated top, providing for greater sustain and balance, more expression from the instrument, and greater structural integrity – all while adding longevity to the instrument.

Featuring a micro-USB interface for easy recording, the Fishman ISYS-301 USB Preamp System includes a side-mounted preamp with rotary controls for volume, tone (bass/treble), and phase; a Fishman Sonicore pickup; onboard easy-to-read 7-segment LED tuner; and ISYS+ USB combination battery box with 1/4" output and USB jack.

Aesthetic Appointments
Lustrous full-gloss finish, pinless Breedlove bridge and Tortoise binding: an attractive package that will make you proud to play this guitar.

Set-Up and Quality Assurance in Bend, Oregon USA
Breedlove’s comprehensive quality control process provides the player with an instrument that will play perfectly right out of the box. Prior to shipment, every Breedlove instrument undergoes a rigorous 25-to-30-point inspection in Bend, Oregon by Breedlove’s expert U.S. quality control team. They start with a visual inspection: checking aesthetic and structural elements of the body and components for flaws. Next, each guitar is tuned and undergoes a play test, where craftspeople check nut height, relief, action, and string height. Based on the results of the play test, the guitar is adjusted for maximum playability. Finally, each instrument is buffed and polished by hand with painstaking attention to detail. Once the instrument has passed inspection, a signed QC sticker is placed, and the instrument is carefully packed and shipped.

Nice. love the way the strings sound when approaching and obtaining pitch. Very light. Very. To busy playing it ti plug it in and check the electronics. So many of us older guys that are looking for a new corner to turn, this is a good one. Fingerstyle...Will make you slow down. Way down. This is so responsive to being plucked. Out of my comfort zone, a little, not for long.

Great service by AMS, the guitar arrived in less than 20 hours after I ordered it. The guitar has marvelous workmanship, great cedar smell and is comfortable and easy to play. Great neck, easy to tune, great action and marvelous tone. It's a STEAL at $499.

surprisingly cool
What is your opinion of this product?
I loved the fit and finish at first glance, but then I played it and found it had a weird buzz, which at first I thought might be a bad string. Instead, the truss rod is dual action and seemed to be floating in neutral, so I tweaked it tight and the rattle cleared right up. After that, it was instant "I LIKE it!!" sentiment. I'm a working pro- this makes guitar 19, I have many high-end instruments. This is a nice quality, working-man's, take-it-out-in-a-snowstorm kind of guitar. Sounds better than others I've tried in the price range. and if you're not used to a classical neck, you'll feel very comfortable with this one. Incidentally, I bought my first guitar from AMS in 1993- thanks for your many years of great service. I've bought a lot of stuff from you guys in the last 22 years.
