The Fishman electronics are dependable and sound great. Many touring musicians depend on these durable and reliable guitars while on the road, and entry-level and beginner players find special value in these easy to play guitars. Every level player will appreciate these guitars and sound better, play better and play more on a Breedlove Discovery Series acoustic-electric guitar.
Buying a first guitar, for yourself or a loved one, can be a challenge. It should be an adventure. You want something easy to play, easy to maintain, comfortable to hold and durable enough to last for years. But you also want, most importantly, great sound, the kind to inspire you towards a lifetime of playing and loving your instrument. A Discovery CE, each one equipped with a Fishman pick-up, sounds fantastic perched on your knee or plugged into an amp—go ahead, get as loud as you want. A built in tuner keeps you true, and a limited lifetime warranty lets you sleep at night. Take the leap—make a Discovery.
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 CONCERT BODY SHAPE
The Concert is our 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.
ENGELMANN SPRUCE TOP
Lustrously pale in hue, like Engelmann, European spruce offers some of the headroom of Adirondack and a quicker response than Sitka. All, of course, share exquisite properties, but European—versatile like its cousins—adds a touch of cedar’s warmth, which makes it a favorite of many fingerpickers. The Organic Collection features torrefied European spruce tops sustainably harvested from the Swiss Alps.
MAHOGANY BACK & 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.
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. The labor-intensive finish process includes precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.
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.
