DISCOVERY S CONCERT MAHOGANY


Many discerning players love the focused, direct sound of single species all African mahogany guitars. Famously warm, with a unique mid-range clarity, such instruments, especially in smaller configurations like the versatile, comfortable and balanced Concert body, are favored by roots rockers and songwriters from Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan right down to Jeff Tweedy and Valerie June. Breedlove’s new Discovery S Concert is Designed in Bend with earth-conscious, sonically superior EcoTonewood technology and features a delightfully fast, easy to play slim neck profile. A natural satin finish, highlighting the wood’s simple straight grain, make this a modern take on a classic guitar. Discover the Breedlove ECO Collection—where the guitar meets the forest.

FEATURES

Sustainable & 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 we move 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.
