For players who want distinctively crafted sound with the notable projection of a Breedlove dreadnought, the Discovery Dreadnought CE is ready for amplification and outfitted for ease of playability with a soft cutaway. 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 Dreadnought CE is a great choice.
The Breedlove Dreadnought is slightly more rounded than traditional dreadnoughts, producing beautifully full, punchy, and articulate tones. The Dreadnought appeals to players inspired by the familiarity of a dreadnought, who are looking for nuance and richness from their instrument. The Breedlove Dreadnought projects well, so it excels in an ensemble, and yet retains the refinement needed for vocal accompaniment.
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.
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.
Lustrous full-gloss finish, pinless Breedlove bridge and black binding: an attractive package that will make you proud to play this guitar.
