Take a look at the Breedlove Pursuit bass:
Alluring Concert-Shaped BodyYour Breedlove Pursuit fits comfortably against your front with its compact concert shape. A big sound full of depth resonates through this baby's soundhole. The resilient Sitka spruce top brings a sharp crispiness to your notes, while standing up well to dings and scratches. The sapele back and sides exhibit similar tonal characteristics to mahogany, placing an emphasis on your lower and mid frequencies without flooding your notes with any unwanted low-end mud.
Comfortable Nato NeckThis Breedlove's nato neck fits snugly into your hand as your fingers span its 22 frets, each with a comfortable action. A silky smooth rosewood fingerboard welcomes your fingers and provides a surprisingly relaxed feel for your notes flow freely. The Pursuit bass offers a modest cutaway that allows you to reach those higher notes more easily if you want to get a little more melodic with your performance.
Clear and Articulate Fishman ElectronicsTo capture every contour of your playing, the Pursuit bass is outfitted with Fishman ISYS 3U1-USB electronics. Play confidently, knowing that your Breedlove's ample warmth and resonance is making its way into a clean, well-articulated signal ready for amplification. Onboard controls include bass, treble, phase, volume, and a tuner. Micro USB connectivity sends your signal directly into your DAW for easy recording sessions, even without an external interface.
The Breedlove Bridge TrussTo help relieve stress from your Pursuit's top without overbuilding and therefore dampening its overall sound, this baby has been fitted with Breedlove's innovative bridge truss. This system allows your bass to flourish with expression and resonance, adding to its lifespan.
Dressed to ImpressAside from its alluring tones, this acoustic-electric bass boasts attractive threads that are easy on the eyes. A decorative abalone ring rosette with purfling goes well with this baby's Sitka spruce top, and a classy abalone binding adds a pleasant air of elegance.

Product DescriptionThe Breedlove Pursuit Bass is a great sounding acoustic-electric bass that goes beyond the design of typical acoustic basses. It features the Breedlove Bridge Truss which relieves stress on the instrument's top while providing additional sustain and balance. Played plugged in or acoustic, this bass will give you precise low end to fit all your musical scenarios. Includes built-in USB port for easy interfacing with recording software.
Body ShapeThe 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. The Concert works well when played fingerstyle, or at a full strum.
Top WoodSitka 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 WoodSapele 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 TrussFor 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.
ElectronicsFeaturing 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.
