Product Description

The Breedlove Pursuit 12 String is the entry point for their famous 12-string guitars, and its design reflects the Breedlove heritage. It features the Breedlove Bridge Truss which relieves stress on the instrument's top while providing additional sustain, balance, and clarity; a comfortable neck and a pinless bridge make it easy to play and a breeze to re-string. Played plugged in or acoustic, the Pursuit 12 String will deliver great tones and textures to enhance your music.

Hear and see the Breedlove Pursuit 12 String in action:


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.

Breedlove Bridge Truss

For 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.

Electronics

Featuring 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.

Aesthetic Appointments

Lustrous full-gloss finish, pinless Breedlove bridge and Tortoise 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. 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 their craftspeople check nut height, relief, action, and string height. Based on the results of the play test, they then adjust 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. In addition to materials and workmanship, Breedlove offers a two-year warranty.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Breedlove Pursuit 12 string"
Overall: Great guitar, believe it or not this is one of the most comfortable acoustic guitars I’ve ever played. I’m around 50 and been playing for about 20 years. I have 2 electrics, 2 six string acoustics, and now 2 twelve string acoustics.The good;The neck is sized perfect for my hands making it very easy to play. The quality of THIS guitar rivals any mass produced in the USA. Maybe this one is a fluke but the fit and finish are exemplary. The back is perfectly book-matched, the spruce top is flawless, and no rough edges on the frets. The tuners are excellent and the guitar stays in tune extremely well and it has a lifetime warranty. The electronics work fine, but truthfully I tested them once and will probably never plug in again. The tuner is actually quite good/easy to use. It’s a nice feature on a 12 string. I didn't plug into the USB, but it’s there if I ever want to. THE PRICE.The not so good;I haven’t replaced the strings yet, and they need it, as the factory ones aren't great. The action is set just a little low. This is my first new 12 string and my old one I tuned ½ step down, however, I keep this guitar tuned to standard EADGBE. I read all the documentation that came with the guitar as well as on the Breedlove website; nowhere did it have any tuning recommendations. I emailed the factory but never received a response, a little troubling. Now the biggest issue (which might not be an issue for you), this is a “concert sized” body, meaning it’s a little smaller than average, (just slightly). This is part of the reason this guitar is so easy to play. However, with the small size you do give up a little tone and a lot of volume. Don’t misunderstand; I’ll never sell this guitar, ever, even if I get a new $5000 custom Breedlove or a $2400 Rainsong. It’s that fun to play. But you’ve been warned :)
