Distinctively crafted sound in Breedlove's most popular body shape.

Discover the fun and expression in this great-sounding, highly playable, attractive acoustic-electric guitar, and you'll discover Breedlove. With the Discovery Plus Series It's all about distinctively crafted sound. Whether you're just learning, rekindling your passion for the instrument, or an experienced player in need of an affordable instrument that will inspire you, the Breedlove Discovery Plus Concert is a great choice.

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
Sitka spruce is grown in the Pacific Northwest, and has been the primary top wood for U.S.A. instruments for many decades. It is strong and light with extended harmonic content, and nearly equals the power of Adirondack.

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.

Electronics
The Fishman ISYS 201 Onboard Preamp System provides maximum value in a small footprint. The system features volume, tone shaping, and phase controls; a pre-wired Fishman Sonicore pickup, low-profile control knobs, low-battery indicator and combination battery box and output jack.

Aesthetic Appointments
Lustrous full-gloss natural finish, pinless Breedlove bridge and black 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. Breedlove starts 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 Breedlove's craftspeople check nut height, relief, action, and string height. Based on the results of the play test, Breedlove's QC team then adjusts 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.

Lifetime Warranty
Breedlove players around the world can attest: With consistent, proper care, your Breedlove will give you a lifetime of service and inspiration. New Breedlove instruments, purchased through an authorized Breedlove dealer, are warranted to be free of defects in materials and workmanship throughout the lifetime of the original owner. In addition to materials and workmanship, Breedlove offers a two-year warranty on tuning machines and electronics packages. Cases and bags are subject to a one-year warranty covering defects in structure and hardware.

Comments about Breedlove Discovery Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I can't say enough great things about this little guitar. Fits my need perfectly for a "go-to" guitar for at home practice, or for hitting an open mic or outdoor gig where I don't want to take my expensive Taylors.

The concert size is very comfy to play, yet puts out a lot of volume for the size. Sounds great whether playing fingerstyle or strumming.

Another thing that drew me to this was a normal 25.5" scale, which handles dropped and altered tunings very well.

I was a little concerned about the 1 11/16" neck vs 1 3/4", which I prefer for fingerstyle. A bit of a compromise, but there is adequate spacing for fingerstyle for most people.

The fit/finish is great. The combo of Sitka Solid top and laminate Sapele back/sides project a well balanced frequency range... even some nice lows for a concert body.

The nut height is perfect, the saddle is OK at about .12",although I'd prefer it at .090". Unfortunately, anything lower than where it's at now will buzz too much.

The Fishman ISYS Sonicore pickup is adequate (for now). It sounds just "OK" through my Genz Benz amp. There's no EQ, per se, but the contour button does scoop the mids a bit to help eliminate some of the "quack" typical of most UST's. There is a phase button that helps with low end feedback. The on-board tuner is fairly accurate and easy to use. I like that the tuner mutes the output jack when engaged.

For the price, (bought as "used" on this site), I couldn't be happier. I bought to become my new "beater", so if it gets beat up around the house, gigging, camping or traveling, I won't stroke out over it :)
