Made from sustainably-sourced exotic and native tonewoods. No clear-cut trees are used in these instruments. Breedlove uses salvaged and individually harvested timber and has deep relationships with responsible suppliers around the globe. As we move towards sustainability across all lines, owner Tom Bedell has visited 15 countries to discover exactly where the wood comes from, how it is selected and harvested, and how this affects the wildlife, the community, the forest and the planet.
Who doesn’t love the roar and chime of a 12-string guitar!? Breedlove’s sustainable new earth-conscious, sonically superior EcoTonewood technology lets you sound better than ever jangling out lush chords from this balanced, responsive and impressively comfortable Concert body specialty instrument.
Sitka spruce offers dynamic brilliance and singing sustain, while African mahogany provides warmth, precision and a rich bottom end. Dressed in a tantalizing gloss Edgeburst finish, appointments for the Discovery S Concert 12-string CE, in addition to exacting Fishman Presys I electronics, include tortoise binding, asymmetrical headstock, chrome tuning machines and a sleek, easy-playing, satin finish African mahogany neck with soft cutaway access to every fret.

Sustainable & Clear Cut Free
ECOTONEWOOD BACK & SIDES
With EcoTonewood, Breedlove makes laminate technology sustainable, introducing a resonant core tonewood layer of clear-cut free, individually harvested African mahogany in place of the typical tone-robbing softwoods used in standard acoustic guitar manufacture. Coupled with Breedlove’s deep research into revolutionary body shapes; building to target tonewood weight adds to the optimized, natural sound of each guitar in the ECO Collection. And, Breedlove creates these better sounding laminate guitars while being kind to the earth while maintaining an accessible, entry-level price-point.
Breedlove EcoTonewood—it’s where music meets the trees.
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.
